Inauguration DAY

Today is Inauguration Day.. I think whether or not we voted for Trump it is still history. the 45th President will take office today. Our kids will read about it in the textbook. I am going to be watching it today as I think it is important to understand and be able to talk about it.. What are your plans on this Inauguration Day??

Heavy heart

Good morning!! It's with a heavy heart that I am writing this post this morning. On Tuesday morning my Memere passed away sudden. We were all very shocked and sadden. She was the center of our family. She was 85 years old and still lived by herself, drove her own car and was always at every family or event. She lives down south so it was hard to see her but she came up to visit with my dad and we went down there. She had 14 grandkids and 14 great grand kids. So crazy to think she is gone. It dose not seem real yet at all. We are packing up the car and heading down South for the weekend and spending time with the family. I had a hard time debating whether to bring my little one with me but in the end I am. I think it is good for her to be around family and meet a lot of family she probably wont get to meet again for a while. Please say a little pray for our family this weekend as it is going to be a hard time and being almost 30 weeks pregnant riding in a car 7 hours and the emotions.  I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH MEMERE
