Hi Stampers:

Happy Sunday Friends !

I can't believe we are close to a week from Christmas & still no snow here in Michigan ( I am not complaining ) .

We are so excited  about this Friday. That's because  my Father in law and Jody and coming for Christmas  so the Griffith house  has been a little crazy  getting things ready . Plus the day after Christmas we have a Photographer  coming to the house to take  family  pictures.

  We haven't done them since Jessie was little  so we thought it was a great time to get that done when the family will be together .

We are having Courtney that did Jessie's Senior Pictures  do them for us . She is amazing click HERE to view her website .

Speaking of Christmas …

Bowzer #5

This past Friday was a year ago  that our  Beloved Bowzer passed away . We miss him so much  I don't think a week goes by without  one of us bringing him up in a conversation .

Bowzer #4He was such a Great dog and when it came to him and dad he always thought of himself as a lap dog

( Yeah right…. a 90 lb lap dog LOL)  .

When hubby came home from Iraq  it was almost like  he started going  down hill  in his health  and maybe he knew Jessie and I were going to be ok now that dad was home again .

Bowzer # 12

He ended up have a Tumor over his left eye and couldn't see much  and his back legs were giving out and couldn't go down stairs very good. He  fell off the stairs outside into our central air unit .

Bowzer #2Such a lover boy and  OH my the patience  he had with Jess when she thought it would be fun to dress him up in her clothes/ bathing suit or paint his nails . I know he loved every minute of it !

We love you & miss you so much  Bowzer !!

My heart is breaking with what  happened in CT.  this past Friday and the loss of so many little childern & adults . Please God be with all those who have lost their loved ones .

Here is my Sunday Share video for you


Until later … Happy Stampin!
