Happy 9th Birthday, Carmen!!

Happy 9th Birthday, Sweet Carmen!!
Our precious granddaughter turned 9 on January 27th.
If you have followed me through the past three years or so
you may remember a couple of the pictures.
Carmen asked her birthday party guests to bring a gift  for a donation. This year she chose to give soccer shoes to children who are under the care of DIF... a program in Mexico which is a little like WIC in
the U.S. Last year she donated corrective shoes to needy
children. Every year Carmen picks a charity or a cause
 that is special to her.
Carmen, Abuela and Pops are so very proud of you...
and love you so much!

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!
I'm late to say "Happy 2013",
but I learned today... it doesn't matter when, but that
it's done.
My dear friends, Nancy and Laura ("White Spray Paint")
and I met for coffee at a McDonald's in Columbus, Texas.
We had not found made, made,  found the time to
meet for coffee in probably a month. VERY rare for us.
Sadly I didn't get a picture but the one above is from
last year...
Not much has changed except...
a wrinkle or two, a pound or two.. or three,
and I was introduced to Medicare!
Oh well... we found ourselves attending the same wedding
out of town and quickly escaped the hotel coffee room
for the privacy of McDonald's... due to the sweet suggestion of my hubby.
The visit was too short but we did promise to meet again soon.
Just as I plan to be back here SOON!
