Family

This is the beauty I find in Nebraska...believe me I had to really look coming from the beauty of our mountains in Colorado!
Sierra...One of the family
Three generations
My beautiful Michelle and Jackson the cat...used to be hers...now belongs to my parents...Jackson was named for my grandfather...
The end of a very long but fun day...can't get out of my daughters Grand Prix...they thought it was funny...I had to wait for the pic before they would help me out!

Family is very important in my world. Getting to come to Omaha to see my sweet girl and her husband and my parents as they came through on their way to a wedding in California was a treat!

Story...Jackson the cat was a gift to my daughter when she was still in school at York. She married a wonderful man who has a father that is very allergic. Poor Michelle was so distraught as they live in the same town as her in-laws so she was going to have to give Jackson up...I couldn't take him as we tend to loose cats to the mountain lions so my dear parents adopted Jackson so he could stay in the family. Now Jackson is the king of my parents house...they LOVE that cat! Feelings were saved...

Sierra the dog was my daughter's and her husbands for about 2 weeks and they quickly realized they couldn't keep her as they both worked...so...to rescue came the in-laws...they adopted Sierra and LOVE her as well...

When I say this family sticks together, I really mean it! It is an awesome family to belong to...even the extended one we came to love through the marriage of these two wonderful kids...

It has truly been a great few days...One more to go and then back to...HOPEFULLY a repaired house devoid of the offending handyman I hope!!

I forgot to mention that any photos I've posted are free to anyone who may want to use the scenery or animals as reference material!

So...a very tired mom and daughter and wife signing off...I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

I love your journaling, Saundra. You and your mom look so much alike! And your daughter has inherited those cheekbones. She is lovely too. Sierra is a gorgeous little MinPin and I'm so glad both she and Jackson have good homes that are still in the family! I suppose somewhat flat farm country might seem a bit drab after the beauty of the mountains of Colorado. That said, I love the beauty of the prairies too. They have their own unique kind of beauty.

Thank you Autumn Leaves...I agree with you that the prairie has a beauty of its own...and I found it while I was living here. Yes my little girl is such a sweetheart too! SO good to her grandparents and me. You are so sweet to stay tuned!!
