Love My Parents!!

Dad, Kacey, Alycia and Mom. We were fixing to play Rook. A game I loved to play as a kid and a game my kids have grown to love. Dad and Alycia are always partners. They never let Kacey, Mom and I win. They are just to good but we still try to beat them. This year on my birthday we won a game. Dad and Alycia said it was a birthday present. lol!!!!

I love Mom, Dad and Kenny's Mom. We have wonderful parents. They are always here for us.

Mom and Dad live in Crossville Tennessee. This is the town that I went to High School and the town where I met my husband. My dad grew up in Crossville. This is the town he retired to after over 20 years in the Army. My dad turned 70 in January and my mom turned 72 this past September. They are the most active 70 year olds I know. My dad golfs regularly and my mom takes care of the elderly. That makes me laugh...she takes care of the elderly and she is 72. I have a hard time getting out of bed some mornings and they are both still working. My parents are amazing! They are loving and caring. They are what I hope to become one day. Over my lifetime they have instilled many good traits in me and I am thankful.

Kenny's mom is amazing. Most days I talk to her 2 or 3 times. Not short talks either. She is one of my best friends. What?? You are friends with your mother-in-law? You bet and I wouldn't take anything for her friendship. We have been through so much over the years. She has made life so much more bearable at times and a lot more fun too. One day I will just tell stories of crazy things we have done.

Alycia, Jan(Kenny's mom), Shelby and Kacey at Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It's all about food and family. How great is that!

I thank God daily for blessing me with wonderful parents.

God is so Good!

Secondly, I want to ask you to tell your dad "thank you" for serving our nation in the Army-- he is a hero. Next, I can say I am truly blessed to know and love your mother-in-law Jan. Your whole family is such a blessing to me!
