Bubba needs blessings....PRAYERS

Bubba doing what he enjoys most...hanging out with the family. Jessi & Brooke have become his dearest friends lately.
Uncle Bubba with Baby Kaci. He loves to holds his neices and nephew.
Poor Bubba! He has been fighting a sinus infection for two months. One doctor sent him to get a cat scan and they have finally found the problem. His nasal cavity is deviated. So surgery is on the schedule for him. He has to get the infection cleared up first, get a couple major injections and he will be feeling better soon. Please keep him in your prayers. Thanks to Aunt Marsha for getting him to the right doctors. We do not know what we would do without her help. Granny has been in the mix too. We are so grateful for loving family. I know Garrett appreciates all you do for him.

kissing relieves stress

Gary and Verda sitting in a tree, K I S S I N G...

We recieved the information that kissing relieves stress. On the news the other night we were told that you should kiss for a minimum of 12 seconds. 12 SECONDS....when was the last time you kissed that long? I believe that is what we old people refer to as "Making Out!" I think the kids call it "Macking!" We were told that you are suppose to avoid the itty bitty pecks and do some serious kissing to keep the home fire burning. We keep practicing, give it a try. It's amazing how long 12 seconds can be.

The other advice was to compliment your partner 5 times a day and remember to say
"I LOVE YOU" out loud.

This is pretty easy stuff when you have a 'honey' like mine....

NOW GO TO WORK ON THOSE KISSES!!! for married people, of course.... I do not want my neices and single children to think they have permission to go out and find someone to kiss to prove this theory.

My grand daughters have nothing on me....

I often receive pictures of my adorable grand daughters sporting similar hair dos. I do believe, Lilian and Kaci, that I have given you a run for your money. You can now see where you get your hair fashion statement! I love you lots. Ma Verdi

Winter continues in Prescott Valley

More pictures of the trees, this time with the white stuff....soooo pretty!

I looked out my window...

I looked out my window and what did I see
white stuff covering the ground and trees
We had a visitor come our way
And a gift was brought so we could play
This visitor and Woody got along well
Thanks for the snow, it's really swell
Punxsutawney Phil said it there would be 6 more weeks of cold
I guess we should pay attention to what we are told!

"Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way."

Today is Brad's 25th birthday. This guy is abosultely TERRIFIC! We all love you and here are a few reasons why:

1. You have an unquenchable desire for adventure. Even when we went to the Grand Canyon and you are soooo afraid of heights, you still went to the edge to view the splendure and went on a hike with the family down into the canyon.

2. You love to play. This is good for my daughter Kerri. She can be too serious at times. However, you have been able to get her to enjoy life much, much more.
" And when they played, they really played. And when they worked they really worked."Dr. Seuss

3. You love ice cream. "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" I do not know anyone who enjoys a bowl of ice cream like you do. You are always in the mood for this treat. Which is good for all of us, because when you come for a visit, Gary always stocks the freezer with pleanty of the cold stuff. We all benefit from your ice cream addiction.

4. You are always gently and kind. I do not know many people who can be so kind, so often, without effort. Even when you are teasing me, I never feel attacked or uncomfortable. You always offer love, --warm, tender love.

5. You are the orginal 'Minute Man'. Whenever we are discussing a question, problem, etc. you are up and working on a solution immediately. Whether we are contemplating an activity, going to a movie, finding a job, questioning the source of are quick to find the answer and you do it right on the spot. You get so much done because you don't wait til later. Because of your example, I have been encouraged and do not put off til tommorrow what I can do today.

6. You're just Special. You just iz!

Happy Birthday to a wonderful person, father, husband, son of god, and all around good guy. Thanks for your optimism and kind heart.

"I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!" Dr. Seuss

If you never did you should...

This is me when I think of you...
This is me when I'm blue

If you never did, you should.
These things are fun, and fun is good! Dr. Seuss

This past Halloween I sent the picture of me with my witchy hair do to my mother just to be funny. I love to be goofy. Not everyone appreciates my humor, but I do and when I am in the mood to goof around, I do. Like when I call my neices, Jessi and Brooke, and leave them silly messages on their phone. Or when I dance in the car, my favorite is the Cyclone. Most of the time I just like to laugh out loud for no reason at all and keep laughing until I wet my pants. Some times I like to laugh and keep laughing until I can get others around me to laugh also. Just because it is silly!

From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere. Dr. Seuss
