Nancy's album

Rich's sister, Nancy, has Downs Syndrome and has gone into hospice care. I am putting together an album of memories for her funeral service. Nancy has had a good life for 58 years and we want to remember all of the joy she brings into our life!

Number One

We spent Dec. 8-10 in cold wet LaPorte, Texas, playing for the State Championship! We won! We are number one, undefeated for the season! The girls had an incentive to win, they got to shave their coaches head after the game if they won! He was a good sport and promptly sat down in a chair on the field and the girls shaved away!
Teysha received a mild concussion Saturday but managed to play the winning game on Sunday! Always nice to come home a winner! Posted by Picasa

Block Toy Tree

I made this block tree full of tiny toys many years ago. Each year the grandkids loved turning it and finding special toys on the blocks. Last year our puppy pulled the tablecloth out from under the blocks and they crashed to the ground!! Since the holidays were almost over I put it in a sack to be put together this year. I had to get the directions on how the blocks are stacked from my sister and I went to work this week reassembling it! Sadly our puppy chewed a few blocks and I can't find anymore this size, so the block tree is downsized but back together to join us in our holiday celebration once again! Posted by Picasa

From Start to Finish

For me the hardest part of decorating for Christmas is getting the boxes out of the attic and sorting through them.The boxes are all labeled Christmas but that is as far as it goes! I always say this year I will label them better but I never do. After a day of unpacking the boxes Teysha and I ended up with a home ready for the holidays! Posted by Picasa

Salado Road Trip

We took a road trip to beautiful downtown Salado. This small quaint town is algow with beautiful Christmas lights! We toured some of the shops, enjoyed the beautiful lights and saw a play at the Silver Spur Theater! At first Teysha was sure this would be no fun, but about 10 minutes into the vaudville fun she was loving it! We met the cast after the show and this was a great way to spend a holiday night in Salado!
