A LONG, HARD WEEK... The last week was so long. Keith flew in for our mother's funeral. The girls were wonderful, but so sad. They attended the viewing on Thursday evening. People were so kind. There were so many beautiful flowers.The Mass of the Resurrection was held on Friday morning and followed by burial at the National Cemetery. It was a long day and so hard to say good-bye.

RITA - August 5, 1921 - March 12, 2012... My mother passed away Monday morning. She had suffered with Alzheimer's for 15 years and steadily gotten worse. She had lived in a care facility for the past 5 1/2 years. She is at peace now and we are all happy for that. She lived a long wonderful life and loved her husband, four children and grandchildren. We loved her so much and she will be missed by all of us.
SCHOOL CARNIVAL... The girl's school held their annual school carnival on Saturday, March 10th. Caeli and Kianna had so much fun. Kianna had been sick with strep throat, but was able to go to the carnival.
Kianna had fun playing games.
So did Caeli!
Kianna thought the petting zoo was fun.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A FEW HOURS MAKES.... We were freezing at the garage sale this morning and by afternoon the sun was out and we got sunburns. You've got to love Phoenix weather.
GARAGE SALE... We will be closing soon on the sale of our Mohawk home. We have moved everything we want to the new house and we decided that it was time to have a garage sale and sell all the items we no longer needed. The girls were wonderful. We were up early on Saturday and Sunday morning. They helped set up and sell items.
They even helped neighbors carry home their purchases.
It was freezing cold in the mornings when we started.
