Easter Party

Today was such a great day! I love holidays and I love holiday parties. Let's be honest I love parties, if I was to chose a career it would be an event planner. I may choose that when I grow up :-).

Anyway back to the party, this year the group was smaller due to friends moving and preschool schedules, but it was a total blast! The kids are getting older too so it seems like there is more time to visit with friends than to chase kids. I was scared it was going to rain but thankfully it didn't ! It turned out to be the perfect day!

I realize every day my kids are growing up and I want them to have the best memories. I know I do!

Last year!

This year!

5 years

Yesterday marked the death of a very special person to us. My husband called her Mom, I called her Pat and my children refer to her to as Meme.
I can't say I knew her for years in fact I didn't even know her long at all. In less than a year of meeting her I was helping care for her, Cancer is such a horrible disease and when it struck her it struck hard. It had no compassion and no delay. She went from being vibrant to being exhausted, from strong to weak all in less than six months.
She found out about the disease on Thanksgiving and by New Years she needed almost 24/7 care. This week I have pondered a lot of the advice she gave me or the things she said the last couple weeks when due to the medicine she would be awake all hours of the night.and they bring a smile to my face.
She will always be special to me because she raised a wonderful person who I call my husband.
Rest in Peace, Pat.
