In loving memory


My Sweet father in law past away today. There has been many tears for many days at our house ,and at the hospital. Saturday night my entire family had a sleepover in his room and were able to spend his last moments here on Earth with him, Even though he was not responsive. It has been so tough on my poor sweet husband who was as close to his dad as any son can be. Poor McKenzie cryed constantly, So much that she cryed herself to sleep holding his hand. It was hard to see him so weak and frail. At about 3:00 this afternoon the hospice told us what we already knew, The oxygen was no longer doing any good and it was time to let him go. I exited my girls out of the room, they proceeded to turn off the oxygen, within one minute he was gone.
He is not gone forever. He is in our hearts and we will see him someday again. Right now he is having a happy reunion with the loved ones he has lost and the Heavens are rejoicing to have such a great man back with them again.We love you Richard and will miss you dearly till we meet again.

mommy daughter date & my poor father in law

So it has been a busy week as usual. Always so much going on,so many places to go, so much work to do, But after getting a letter on my bed from MaKayla asking when we could do a mommy daughter date with just me & her, I decided it was time to slow down and take a moment to spend with her. I planned on just the two of us and McKenzie didn't like the fact that she didnt go first, so what did we do? Well the whole family went to  Sub Zero Ice-cream (Highly reccomend it) and MaKayla & I sat at a table way away from everyone else. Yes there were the occasional screams of Crew saying MAAA...MAAA. I would have to wave and re assure him i was still there.
MaKayla & I had a lovely chat about life, boys (yes she has a boyfriend and I'm not sure how I feel about that), and how she thinks things are running around the house. The best thing about doing it this way was after about 15 minutes we switched and I got to talk with McKenzie. It was a fun little event.
 On a sadder note. my father in law has been in the hospital for a few days now and it is not looking good. There has been many tears shed at our house. So please keep him and Scott in your prayers becuase Scott is having a rough time. It started with him falling and breaking his hip, sugery, than he fell and broke his ribs, than he had a stomache infection and refused to go to the hospital, that is until Scott & his brother forced him. They have found a growth in his stomache. he has gone dilirious from meds adn low sodium. We just hope all will work out according to the Lords plan and everyone will be able to accept whatever comes next for Richard, we love you dad and hope you will get better soon.

the million dollar mom {mother's day}

So I am always telling Scott that he should pay me a million dollars for all I do around the house. Especially if he ever brings up that he pays for the house. This mother's day he was really thoughtful. I have been wanting some of these pine trees for photography props for my woodland & fairy scenes, so he got me some. When he told the lady he was giving me these for Mothers day and making a money tree out of it she sent him with one Mothers day money bill. he took them and had them printed off and they all hung them with real money from the trees. It was darling. I got beautiful homemade cards and pinecones as accents.
 Than after church we had our traditional extended family mothers day meal at Golden Corral.


And Happy Mother's dat to my own mom who taught me how to be one!I love you mom, love, Danielle

So I went from being a blogging fanatic to once every two weeks post person.But it doesnt look like I have too many readers anymore anyway.lol. I am just loving weight watchers after 15 weeks I have lost 21 pounds and finally know how to eat. Was i ever a huge over eater? I do not think so.Did I eat lots of sweets? Not really they werent my weekness. but I was eating too much of the wrong things.
I acually know how to order out now. that is a first for me. i know how to be strong at family parties without feeling deprived.I feel all around better about the choices I make and me as a person. i am so glad I joined and cant wait to be a lifetime member.
Ill post pictures of me when I have time. Silly isn't it, here I am a photographer but cant find the time to take a pic of me. Soon I promise, really soon.
I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
