Hanks Dad

Hanks dad passed away Wednesday night this week. He had fallen the end of last week and was not doing well so Hank and his brother both booked a flight out for Friday morning but sadly enough he did not last till Hank and his brother arrived. The kids and I could not get a flight out so only Hank went. We hope to go out soon and spend some time with his mom and hopefully his mom will come spend some time with us soon:)
His dad lived a long life but it is still HARD when it is your parent who passes away.
YaYu you will be missed!!

A Fun Night

We had a some friends over on Saturday night for dinner and it was a fun evening. I tried a few new recipes and was very happy on how they turned out:)
I made the chicken and the bread pudding from Sandra Lee. I made a rum sauce to go over it and OMG it was sooo good!!! I already had for Black Beans and Rice that we really like and we also had fresh corn and fruit salad! Diane B brought over a pecan pie and homemade ice cream too!! Michelob Ultra has flavored beer and the peach passionfruit and pompagrande raseberry ones are both WONDERFUL!!! I love having friends over and it was a great night:)

2 Years!!

Today marks 2 years since my dad passed away. He had fallen in June and hit his head and had bleeding on the brain. His will to live was not there after my mom passed away 10 months earlier. I see my dad in my boys and know the respect they had for him. We miss him but we know he is with my mom on a beach with there little cooler, beer and radio and that makes us all HAPPY!! Love and Miss you both!!!

Yep..That's My SON!!

The 4H Fair has been all week and we went last night Tyler wanted to enter the Pie Eating Contest. He did it a few years ago and came in 3rd and since then has been at camp this week so never entered again. The age groups were Up to 12 (he is 12), 13-17 and adult. There were only 2 12 year olds so they placed them in the 13-17 year old group and Yes, MY Son WON!!! He won a BLUE Ribbon and $15 (and a stomach ache:). He had a ton of laughs and it was a BEAUTIFUL evening to walk around the fair!!
This was 2 years ago when he came in 3rd..I am shocked at the difference in Tyler in 2 years..
