Such a sad day!

Well, today was a hard day. My brothers are 49 years old today. They share this special day with our Mom. Our mother passed away 2 years ago today. It's ironic how numbers play into things. Tom and Mike were born, and our Mom passed away all within a half hour, many years apart. The girls were here to spend the day with me. Dana, Laci, and I went to the cemetery to put flowers on Mom's grave. It hardly seems possible that two years have passed! We think of her all the time and miss her daily.
With Halloween just around the corner I thought I'd share a few pictures of Mom dressed up. She loved to think up new costumes for Halloween!

Laci is on the left, with Dana on the right.

Zoey was watching the slide show and when we got to the picure of Tyler as an infant, Zoey thought it was Cade!! So cute!

It looks like Auntie Karen really liked to have fun! Dressing up for Halloween or decorating her house for Christmas, she seemed like she went all out and had a blast doing it!!

I thought about you ALL DAY on this bitter sweet day! And then all day yesterday and today - I have been meaning to call you - but have been SO stinkin' busy! Please know I'm thinking of you and you're in my prayers! :o) (I'll give you a call sometime next week - hopefully things will slow down a bit!)
