Meet Our Family / Friends Saturday

This is my Sister-in-law Claudia. She is my brother's wife. At a really bad time in my life, they took me in and allowed me to live with them for 6 months. I will never be able to let her know what she means to me. She is an extraordinary woman and I love her so much. She is a great cook, a good Christian lady, and a wonderful Mom.

She is the Mom of my three beautiful nieces, from left to right- Samantha, Scarlett, and Sarah. I have a very special bond with Sarah. For many reasons, she owns a piece of my heart. Claudia is one of the best Moms I know.

This is my baby brother Chuck (most people call him Charles) but to us he has always been Chuck, and Claudia. They have been together since she was 15 and he was 16. They live in CA, and I miss these people so much, no words can express it.

Claudia's birthday is Tuesday the 18th, so an early Happy Birthday to you Claudia. Have a great one!

It's OK Thursday

Its Ok Thursdays be excited about my new camera. have a hard time staying away from the scales. I want to weigh all the time. Who knows, I may have lost an ounce, lol. be upset that hubby can only get off one day, the day after Christmas. That means we will leave after he works on Christmas Eve to go to AL, a 5 hr drive, stay at David's, off to Dennis' the next morning, and home again Christmas night. Shortest trip ever!
..that I'm just not into Christmas this year, but am very excited about the New Year. keep buying myself things I find as great deals, when I should be shopping for the family.
..that I love all the Christmas movies on tv. I could watch every single one...and some twice. be happy that hubby got really Nice things at his Holiday work party Sunday night.
..that we are having spaghetti for the second time in 7 days.
..that it is Grey's Anatomy night!!!
..that my house is a total mess. Just don't care today. be thankful and Thank God for the Amazing week we had last week. It was GREAT!!!

Meet our Family/Friends Saturday

Tracey and Buddha
This is my sister-in-law Tracey and her man Buddha. Tracey is hubby's only sister. She has two sons whom we adore. Mitchell just got back from Iraq and married a really sweet girl named Kelli. Her youngest, Christopher, just graduated high school this year and is working and deciding what to do with rest of his life.

Tracey is honestly the sweetest hardest working woman I know. Her heart is HUGE. She loves camping, motorcycles, and photography. Her and Buddha have been together seems like a lifetime, and he is her soul mate. She has a smile that will light up your day and is always so positive.

They live in Washington state near Seattle, and their oldest that just married also just bought a new house in North Carolina.

Mitch and Kelli
