I Got Stung


I don’t remember ever being stung before, but now that I have been stung, I will never forget!

I thought I had a fly on my right arm so I swiped it with my left hand and came away with a stinger in my finger!!!

Ouch!!!

Caldwell Reunion 2014


We have recently had our family reunion.

We always have an auction of things we all bring, canned goods, baked items, hand-made items, whatever you want to bring.

The Caldwell family is very talented.

My favorite auction item that I won this year was my Aunt Janice’s plum jelly.

YUM!!

It’s a great idea, we use the money from the auction to pay for the rental of the country club that we have our reunion in.

Of course the kids love the swimming.

We always have a great time.

I still miss my Dad, I guess I always will!

1 Year Anniversary


This is my one year anniversary from being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Still kicking!

I know, I know, my hair looks ridiculous,

I’m a good 20 pounds overweight,

 a little rough for the wear,

but I’m still here!!

I’ve seen cancer at its worst too many times.

I feel very fortunate.

Thanks to God, my husband, my family, and my countless friends for pulling me through this long, long year!

With all that said, I have a mammogram scheduled for Friday.

Scary!!!!!!

Birthdays, Birthdays, BIRTHDAYS!


We have had some birthday celebrations around here lately.

Gracyn came up from Arkansas to stay a week last month, so we celebrated her 5th birthday while she was here.

We had a cookout and birthday cake and ice cream at her Aunt Kayli’s house.

All her cousins were there!!

 The  picture above on the right is Gracyn with her great grandparents.

I also threw a surprise 50th birthday party for Big Ran.

We had a Miami Dolphin cake and Mountain Dew cupcakes on the desert table.

I made a 50 sign with pictures of him on it.

He received some great old man gifts!!!

image image image image

 I don’t know if you have noticed or not , but Big Ran has grown a “Soul Patch” on his chin since he has retired from the Army Reserve.

He is very proud!

He joined the Army Reserve when he was 18, so this is the first time he has had to grow facial hair.

So to honor his “Soul Patch”, I bought those stick on mustaches and cut them to look like soul patches for everyone to wear.

Fun time!!

I wish I had taken more pictures!!!

We all had a great time!
