She wasn't quite a Christmas baby, but close. Happy Birthday to my little sister Jacqui!  She is actually the middle daughter, guess that makes her Jan...oh then I am Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!


 Look how great a big sister I was holding her so tight so she was safe, didn't she have huge feet as a baby!! Ha!

Poppa, Diana and Jacqui

Here is Poppa, with Jacqui and I. Sure do miss him!

Jax, Court & Di

Here is Jacqui and I at Courtney's wedding, guess she would be Cindy...ha!  Our Mum got re-married so Courtney is younger than fact I think the difference between Courtney and my age is the same difference between my Mum and I. Since Jeff and I won't be Grandparents, I am having Courtney have Daphne call me Aunt Di-Nana.


Here we are this fall when Jacqui came to visit.  She is hiding her huge feet under the table...ha!

Happy Birthday Jacqui, I love you and miss you so much! Thanks for putting up with my sense of humor...although we are totally the same...cause really if you just look at Jacqui's baby face it looks like those are her big feet!!!

Have a great Jacqui's and thanks for stopping in.

November Thank You close

What a fun day, I was woke up early by Jeff, Eric was ready to open presents, he had all the presents all lined up for everyone from under the tree.

Christmas 2013 002

As I fed the girls the guys made monkey bread...not on my diet.

Christmas 2013 001


Christmas 2013 032

I won't be weighing myself till Monday so that will give me time to get back to eating better, I mean it was Christmas after all.

As I handed out everyone's stockings Toby was last but before I could give him his, he hopped on the couch, grabbed his new toy and ran off, guess he figured he had waited long enough.

Christmas 2013 012

When Jeff and I went shopping we picked up new socks and undies for everyone...since I lost weight I got some non-Granny panties and when I was wrapping them...yeah gotta wrap your own presents...ha!  I thought I am going to put Jeff's name on the present.

Christmas 2013 005

I think he got one little rip in the package and he was like "I think this is yours" and then he looks at the tag. So then I quickly took a picture of Eric...this is what I really did it for to get Eric's reaction.

Christmas 2013 007


Christmas 2013 029

Eric was super happy he got what he wanted. He played with it most of the day.

Christmas 2013 028

Jeff got some new shoes.

Christmas 2013 023

I got the cutest little chicken frame from my friend and downline Donna, I love it, and you Donna! Thanks!

Chicken Fountain

The girls even got a present. A new water system. No more having to clean poop out of their water!!!

Jeff is from Illinois and grew up a lot of years in Roseville, his parents and two older brothers still live there.  One of the guys he went to school with Dale Anderson, his daughter is a singer, check out this video, I really need to find the lyrics, I have got a few more words by reading her lips, up till now I just had the CD.

I love the lyrics I can understand, especially about people knowing your Mum and Dad. She has a great voice.

I like it shows Jeff's hometown in it, if you like it, show her some love and leave her a comment on YouTube...thanks!
