My niece E let me know that she lives in Nova Scotia. I still can't believe I could not think of it!!! She was a bit surprised (as was I) that I did not mention that she also graduated from High School at age 16. I guess I thought I implied that she was young, since she is going into her second year of University and she just turned 18. Still, I did not make that clear. So there you are.
I will post some shots from two years ago, at a Family Reunion on my Dad's side. This was one year and one day before my little brother died. Boy, little did we know what heartache and pain the next August would bring us.
This is my nephew, S, with Princess. Note how similar his hair is to Brain's. Brain's is a bit more unruly and frizzy, like mine. But the little ringlets and curls are in both. We cut about eight inches off of Princess's hair shortly after this picture was taken. She had been begging us, and Stud and I could not bring ourselves to chop off those ringlets. They never have returned, just like we suspected:( But she was SO HOT all the time. We have cut off 16 more inches since then. She really has no trouble growing hair!
This is S's sister, E, holding my little brother, her uncle. We always love this trampoline at the place we hold the Reunions. Davy loved it, as you can maybe see by his face! There is a smaller younger Clown jumping on there also. Jock is there in the blue shirt and the yellow backed dude is my oldest brother, E, S and G's Dad. He is THE COOLEST:) He worked really hard at many jobs and school and trying to see his kids. His wife divorced him when G was not even a year old. He is now a social worker in Northern Saskatchewan. I couldn't do it. But that is an entirely different post.
This is my FAVOURITE picture ever taken of G and Princess! Isn't it cool?? Aren't they stunning???
The seven cousins with their Uncle. Who was younger than some and barely older than others. My brother's three kids basically grew up with him and had an even closer bond than my kids, of course. Since we don't get up there very often.
Stud and I with our babies, during happier times.
Ok, just wanted to post some of these. I need to get working on the post telling all about my sweet precious brother and showing Jude my before/after pictures of all the work we have done in the house here in the six years since we moved in.
Toodles! Off to eat my Jenny Craig lunch. Man, I have stuck to this perfectly and have not lost anything in almost a week. Is this normal, anyone know?? Will I suddenly drop a few more pounds and then the scale will stay the same and then suddenly a few more?? My pants are already loose and uncomfy, which is great. I really wanted to be about 8 lbs less than I am by the end of this month. I suppose that is still possible, eh??
Have a great day everyone!!!
