Family Time.

Last week in Oklahoma the 2 days before the funeral we all wanted to spend some quality family time together….to get our minds onto something fun for a change. Last Tuesday we had a girls day where we took my Oma to lunch, shopping (of course) and then to see Cinderella so she could have a break from making funeral decisions. 

The movie? We all loved it! It was so cute and had the best message…..

  Be Kind and Have Courage!!!

 Here is my Mom, Aunt Heidi and grandma Oma enjoying the recliner seats! A St. Patty’s Day well spent!

 Cheese….. We aren’t related or anything……..

 Then last Wednesday Matt made it to Oklahoma as did my brother and my Dad took the day off!! So we went to this super fun place Hey Day in Moore and had lunch and then bowled a few rounds!

 Here I present you with our best family bowler and the worst…. take your guess as to who is who!!!

 I mean it is rare that we are all off of work and get to spend time together….. we all had the best time!

 Marissa’s Birthday is next week and in fact last week her and my Mom were suppose to be on Spring Break in Denver with me until things changed. So I wanted to take a minute out and give her an early Birthday present! And of course she loved the paper! Me too!!

 Here is one of my super handsome cat-siblings “Fuzzy Bear”…. I think he looks like Aslan from Narnia!

 And of course my Dog-Sister Betsy Ross who had the week of her life with all of us in town to give her non-stop love! Oh, how I love this little girl! She is a mini Aussie!

Lastly I was so thankful that my 2 girlfriends Becky and Melissa came to the funeral to support me! Thanks girls! Then Becky came back to my Moms with the family to help out….. she is family after all!

You know now I am in this weird place where I need to get back to real life but I can’t. I am honestly still in denial, I haven’t fully grieved… I know it. I just can’t believe it.  Each day is challenge. Thank you to everyone for the prayers and thoughts shot our way!

    I am so glad you got some much needed family time. Denial will get through this initial period of time, take things one day at a time. You do have much love, thoughts, and prayers coming from many people that love and care about you.
