Year in Review 2018

Time once again to look back at the happenings during the year and our family.
Our daughters:
Trica and Dick
Trica and Dick 2018 They are empty nesters except when Paige comes home to visit.  They have a dog named Jade, a cat named Bailey and of course Sigourney Paige’s pig.
Andy and jen 2018
Jen and Andy still have a couple of years before they are empty nesters.  They have two Shelties…Miney(13) and Little Elvis(8).
The girls and their spouses all have jobs!
Savannah Christmas 2018
Savannah 2018
Savannah is attending Bemidji State University and has two part time jobs.  This year she gained a cat named Simba to join her animal group which includes Chewy and Luna.
Maddie Christmas 2018
Maddie 2018
Maddie took Hey Mikey and moved to Michigan.  She has a job there as a Dental Assistant.  She has two dogs; Deacon and a new pup named Amos.  Sadly her kitty Ziggy died this year.
Paige Christmas 2018 
Paige 2018
Paige is attending the University of Minnesota at Duluth.  She still has a pot bellied pig named Sigourney who lives with her parents…cause you cannot take a pig to college.
Noah Christmas 2018
Noah 2018
Noah attends the University of North Dakota.   He works full time while going to school.
Adam Christmas 2018
Adam 2018
Adam is a Junior in High School.
Great Grandchild:
Hey Mikey is busy little guy who is 19 months old now.  He makes us smile!
Children make your life important…  Erma Bombeck

Friend Ruby (100),  friend Jim (71), Aunt Delores (82), Aunt Louise (88), Aunt Lila (86), Brother in Law Tim (63), Cousin Tammy (49) and Cousin Marc (50). May they all rest in peace.
Pet Deaths:
Shiny Brite Tree and Chance (2)
Many paw prints were left upon our hearts this year. 
Biggest Changes:  Life without a dog.
Biggest Frustrations: People and places with heavy perfume and after shave.  The Clean Air Act is supposed to protect people from air pollution…that would include any and all perfume/fragrances.  This year I have noticed that peoples clothing stinks from fabric softner/ fabric softner pellets that keep on giving and giving.
Happiest Moment in 2018: For me that was being able to bring Far Guy home from the hospital after three hospital visits.   For Far Guy:  Most likey his 50th Class Reunion.
Happy New Year’s Eve!

What a wonderful family, and such beautiful people too. It has been a hard year for losses for me, too, but I don't like to list them all or it makes me feel worse. I still miss Chance, too. But you did a great job of reminding me of how life goes on, and we get over it eventually. Hey MIkey is adorable! :-)

Shirley said...

Beautiful family! You are indeed blessed.

You had much loss this year but also some joys too.....Hey Mikey! You have a lovely family and yes, we all still have much to be grateful for. As a friend of mine used to say..."it could always be worse" and don't we know it! I hope the New Year treats you kindly.
