If Van Gough had visited Disneyland

I have this on my Facebook page and thought I'd share here. Van Gough is my favorite artist and this is funny.

Ready or not.........I'm baaaaaaack!

Where do I start? I know, how about some pictures?

This first picture is our trip to Oregon last October. We visited a pumpkin patch with my niece, her husband, and 2 year old son.

Thanksgiving 2013 with my husband and Mother-in-Law

Some Christmas 2013 gingerbread cookies I made

In the New Year, I made time to get back into crafting. This is a wreath I made out of seashells.

In May 2014, we cruised to Alaska again but this time went under the SF Golden Gate Bridge. It was breathtaking!

and it was COLD in Glacier Bay, Alaska!

Just for fun, we get "ducked" and grow matching beards (btw I hate Duck Dynasty!)

We welcomed the newest member of our family on June 6, 2014 (brother to the 2 year old in my first picture)

Then welcome the two newest members of our furbaby family, Murray & Moses (Phoebe G would have approved I think)

In the time between, I'm still baking, worked on a local political campaign (we won!!!) and had jury duty. There's lots more but that's basically what I've been up to, thanks for leaving the light on for me. How about you guys?

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

My precious Phoebe G passed away last night at 8:09. I was fortunate enough to be by her side when she took her last breath. She died quietly and peacefully on my bed on her "bankey" surrounded by love.
