This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Remembering a Special Lady

Today Nick and I attended the memorial service for my grandma Margie in Vinita, OK. She passed away on June 1 and thankfully I got to see her about a week before she died. She was born in 1928 and I spent summers at her house in Guthrie when I was a child. We helped her move here to OKC over 15 years ago and she attended several holiday dinners throughout the years. Bradley was her ONLY great grandchild and she loved to see him. She will be missed!

This is from Thanksgiving 2012


She lived in OKC up until around May when her health declined enough that her cousin Ralph (who lives in Vinita) moved her up there where he could help her get set up in a nursing home with hospice care. She was given 30 days to live, and made it only about 3 weeks.

Today the service was performed by their local minister and cousin Ralph hosted us for lunch before. Here is Ralph and his wife Nancy, my uncle Del in the middle, and my dad Tony on the right.....

From L to R is Ralph, Uncle Del, dad, me, and my brother Eric.

I couldn't help but enjoy the beautiful rose garden they had at their house! I took several pictures because I knew my mom would enjoy looking at them.

In other news, I had a wonderful birthday on Tuesday! Nick had jury duty for most of the day but I got to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal of chicken alfredo and carrot cake by my dear mother! Nick treated me to a spa pedicure and that evening we had a quiet dinner at Zio's.
