I love flowers and they are in my craft room up high (so the kittys don't eat them)..and I can enjoy them..

her daughters and herself gave me a beings it was april fools day..Nykol her 9 year old decided to pull a fast one on me..and she did..she put on the card that her little sister had broken her arm..I couldn't believe Sarah hadn't said anything..then when I opened the said april fools..the little stinker...I love those little kids of hers..and love the sweet little cards..Sarah if you read this..thank you for taking such great care of me and Mike on are a sweetheart with a huge heart of gold..;)
