Another Catch-Up

Hello friends~ I finally decided to write a blog post, it sure has been awhile. My life is pretty boring so I never have much to say...you all should probably thank me! LOL

The weather here in Minnesota has been just beautiful! The daytime temps have been between 75 and 80 and God has been providing the air conditioning for the nights. It has been great sleeping weather. On some days there has been a little hint of fall in the air and that makes me so happy! Fall is the start of my favorite part of the year. I love the crisp sweatshirt weather, the colorful leaves and the shorter daylight. When I say that people think I am crazy but I just love coming home from work, putting on my primitive lights and candles and snuggle in to do some crafting, stitching or reading. Oh yes I am looking forward to fall...but not so fast....On the news it said that the heat and humidity are coming from Idaho...thanks Steph! LOL Temps in the 90's and high humidity...Booo!

Two weeks ago we had a very special weekend. The whole family got together to celebrate my mom and dad's 55th anniversary. We got a new family picture taken because the one we took 5 years ago on their 50th is short 4 people. It is kinda funny...we were talking that Jon hadn't even met Judy when we celebrated mom and dad's 50th and in that time he met her and Ian and Ivan, dated, fell in love, married and now they have Isaiah. You just never know God's plan for you! Here is the family picture...


This is my mom and dad and the four kids... I am the oldest and shortest, my sister is next and then we adopted my brother Mike and then adopted my brother Jon. I was a twin and my twin brother died when we were 5 and a half so that is why mom and dad decided to adopt.
This is  Mike and Jane and their family...Matthew, Michelle and Logan..
This is Jon, Judy and their boys  Ian, Ivan and Isaiah...
This is mom and dad and the grandkids...
And here is my buddy Isaiah. He was being very spoiled...everyone wanted to hold him and love on him, he was quite happy with all of the attention.



We all went out to eat and just enjoyed all of out time together laughing, talking and catching up. It was a great memory making time!

Well that is about all of the catching up I have for now. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

So glad I checked in today. What wonderful family photos you posted! Everyone looks so happy. I hope you are well and I agree, we've been enjoying this weather despite a few hot days which we used a new pop up pool to beat the heat with.

Take care Cindi!
