Hey, Daddy-o

Happy Father’s Day to the amazing fathers in our family and everywhere!

Father's Day - Ray

Father's Day - Joel

I love you guys! 🙂

The Moment…

“The moment a child is born,
the mother is also born.”


My Mother — Digitally colorized from a sepia toned school photo.

Steve's family — taken in Mason City, Iowa about 1963-ish.

My Daughter-in-law and Granddaughter — Practically Perfect in Every Way... both of them 🙂

And for my sweet rose, Jenna.

Whether you’re “officially” a mom or not,

if you’ve ever assumed the role or willingly and positively contributed to the life of a child…

Happy Mother’s Day!

Patty Main, far right

What a month! April crept up on me during our move and I’m behind in birthday wishes. Happy birthday and much love to my mother today… and to Steve and Jenna earlier this week!

How old were you in this photo, Mom? I know you hated the nickname, but I couldn’t resist. 🙂

… or maybe 39.5 seconds…

Happy Birthday Joel!

Z is Three!


Z is Three!

Celebrating three glorious years of Zoe today!

Happy birthday, sweetheart!

And a happy Valentine’s Day to all!

Life is Just a Bowl of Raspberries!

Local news says we got around 9-12 inches of snow yesterday! According to National Weather Service, the official total for Thursday’s snowfall was 12.5 inches, the greatest total ever here in a 24-hour period. The amount that actually accumulated on the ground was much less. Very unusual weather we’re having!
