I am married to the most wonderful man who I've known more years than I have not! We recently celebrated our 41 years of marriage. Our oldest son is our business partner. We farm in Mexico, growing papaya, honeydew and person-size watermelon. We travel back and forth to Mexico to take care of our business. This son is married and has two children. He lives in Mexico to oversee the business. Our middle son works for Clinical Pathology Lab. His wife is a doctor and recently opened her cosmetic dermatology clinic in Houston. Our youngest son is a realtor in McAllen, Texas, near where we live. He loves his work and his business is steadily growing. We lived in Mexico for three years to get our farming operation going. It was an exciting time for us! My hobbies are genealogy, home decorating and cooking. I love blogging! I am so very blessed to have a loving family... not only the family my husband and I created, but also my family of friends. Fall and winter months are when I enjoy blogging the most. Seasons change and I love keeping up with the change in my home. I have had some amazing experiences with my faith in Christ and I truly feel that God is always with me. I try to live my life the way God would have me live it.
Ever since my husband was a little boy he has "snooped" into his Christmas presents. His parents had to send the Christmas gifts to the neighbor's house in an effort to keep him out of the packages. He didn't consider that a problem at all. He just waited until the neighbors were gone and then he "snooped"! (No one locked their house doors in the old days... remember?) He remembers getting up in the middle of the night and unwrapping everyone's presents and wrapping them back up. I've asked him time and again, "Didn't that spoil the surprise for you?" He always answers with a laugh, a twinkle in his eye and a resounding, "NO!" I just think is so odd. I would never want to spoil a surprise for myself, but, as my aunt says, "That's what makes horse racing!"
(I am just now figuring out why my husband does such a good job wrapping presents when I request help. He's had lots of practice.)
