The Swedes Came!

This was such a fun night! We had cousins come to visit from Sweden. They live about 20 miles north of Stockholm. You would have never known we hadn't known them forever! They just fit right in and we had such a great time with them. So Thomas, Babs and Anna we loved meeting you and really miss you. I guess we really do need to go to Sweden!

Swedish Proverb

Alan sent this to me a few days ago and I like it! I hope it is a Swedish Proverb, but Swedish or not I like it! I am also excited as my cousins from Sweden are coming to Missouri to visit. My Mom knows them through email and doing Swedish family research on line and they are coming today! I hope the doctor will let me up on my leg as I want to meet them. We are having a family dinner on Saturday and I can hardly wait!

Spring Gardening

Even though I can't get in the garden, It just wouldn't feel like spring if I didn't get a few tomato plants in the garden. So Gideon helped Grandpa with the digging. He was so cute out there with his little rake! Now I will just lay around and wait for the tomatoes to appear!

Not for the faint of heart...

So the leg saga continues...after 17 weeks of healing, 5 weeks in a back board, 8 weeks in a cast, and 4 weeks in a boot, this is what my leg looks like. My doctor looked at it and said that is not kidding! So he sends me off to the the orthopedic surgeon. The surgeon says I need surgery as it is a non union break. This means that the bones healed... just not together. So they will go in and cut off the ends of the broken bone, do a bone graft and and put in a plate. This will all happen next Monday. I will then have another 8 weeks in a boot. Jeeze Louise!

Mother's Day

Just my Mom and me.

Mother's Day is a special day for all of us. It's time to kiss and hug the sweetest thing in the world - our Mother! There is no way we can ever really thank our mother for all she does for us, nevertheless we must make it a habit to keep reminding ourselves of the various sacrifices she made while raising us. Thank you Momma for all you have done and continue to do for me, and all the generations you influence.
This is 4 generations of the girls in our family. What a legacy my Mother has given us, and I am just one of her daughters. These amazing and beautiful women and girls are my daughters and 1 daughter in law (I wish the other two daughters in law were there) and 10 wonderful grandaughters.
