Its been quite a while since I last posted anything and decided today I would do some thing about it.  As I get ready to make a trip to Maine in part to celebrate the life of my father, Frank J. Pollard.  My memory is flooded with events of the past several years knowing of his difficulty and challenge with Alzheimer's.  It truly isn't a disease that is kind to any one that has it.  However, I must say my father handled it well.  I often spoke with him on the phone until he wasn't able to really talk much any more but he was always very up beat and surprisingly happy.   A lesson I need to learn from him.  I will miss my father but I have Faith that one day we'll see each other again and things will be as should be.  For now I will remember my dad for having great Faith and courage and more patience than any one I know.

Where did February Go?

Maggie and I seem to be enjoying a afternoon nap. February was to cold for me to leave the house very often so we made the best of it. And she has to be right in my lap. I guess Tammi thought this picture was too good to pass up.

Kayson sporting some pretty cool looking sun glasses. I found this pic and the first thing I thought of was Elton John...... with the big glasses. He continues to make us all laugh all the time.

Jordan went to a preference dance with this kid . I forgot what these people are called....some thing like minons or something like that. If you know let me know. Jordan had a lot of fun doing this and colored all the glasses and had the shirts made. We are so NOT looking forward to Jordan leaving home this summer. She is planning to go to Utah State University this next year and we'll miss having her home. Jayme will be the only one left home. How weird is that going to be?

Mother and daughter having a fun year. Tammi is really going to miss Jordan. This was at a Senior Night. Do you think they look a like ----I don't see it but maybe you do.

So where did February go? I had a birthday 52 now thats getting old and I also celebrated 11 years since the transplant. Can you believe it? Its great to be alive and see all these wonderful things taking place. Now I can't wait for SPRING to get here so I can get back on my mower and enjoy a day in the sun. I guess I better get busy and start posting more huh?

Surprise, Surprise!!!

We were so surprised when Jason and Emily came home this past weekend and were anxious to show us their version of a new family portrait they had framed for us to keep. Tammi got to see it first and after a 60 seconds of her screaming all over the house, I knew something wasn't quite what it was suppose to be like; it was a picture of an Ultra sound...............Yep! Their going to have a baby. We are so excited I can't even tell you how happy we are. That will make two grand babies in 2012. One in the spring and another in the fall.

Congratulations Kids! You'll make super parents.

My prediction is this: My father had girl , boy, girl. I had girl, boy, girl. I think Jason and Emily will have a girl first as well. Knowing that the sex of any baby is determined by the male and keeping with history I think Emily will have a girl.

Frankly, we don't care which one they get just as long as its a healthy baby. Thanks for all you did while you were here checking my autos and running the mower and wheeler. We loved having you home.
