7 Minutes of your time

I was forwarded this at work. Doesn't feel like just forwarding would do this message justice, so I thought I'd post here to try to reach more viewers :)

...something to think about that I don't think we necessarily do!

Lita's 87th Birthday

Lita turned 87 a couple of weeks ago! My lovely cousin Nena aka Rosa :) put together a lovely family gathering with just our immediate family. Immediate may sound small...but mind you, my grandma has 5 kids. 2 of her 5 kids have 5 kids, and the other 3 have 3 each, and of course that generation has kids while not everyone was able to make it, it was a nice 'small' gathering for us.

We had a bit of a photo shoot...enjoy :)

 pics were taken... trying this link to costco's photo site where I have all the pics from the party posted. Click here (you'll probably have to make an account with them. It's 15 or 17 cents for prints if you order from them.). OR if you drop by we can put them on disc for you.

A couple of weekends ago, we got to attend a very special 60th wedding anniversary. It was special because of who it was, Tia Rica & Tio Tony. Tio Tony suffered a heart attack last year and has been recuperating for about 10 months now - and doing well!! He turned 80 this year :) And looks great!

they had a photo of their wedding party put on the cake!

It was kind of a family reunion. Lots of people we hadn't seen since my dad's funeral, and some since my sister's funeral 6 months later. There were lots of mixed emotions there on so many levels, but the Lord has definitely done some healing and many relationships are on their way to restoration, and others restored! YAY :)

Tyler talking it up with my unlce dad's last brother here with us...they have many similarities, so it was neat for T to kinda get a glimpse of what my dad was like :) many memories of being in El Centro...the second we had breakfast we would be next door at my tia nelly's house playing/hanging out...

MORE PICS - I posted all the pics on costco's photo website, since they're probably the least expensive place to order prints from :) HOPEFULLY it works for you to view them by clicking here. (if not, email me and I will send you the link separately).

It was so good to see everyone there! Just missed my cousin cousin of these days - you've got to call me when you come to visit your grandma!
