Dads, Daughters, and Grands-Oh My!

Drama Y'all! Always seems to be haunting me. Things seem to calm down for a few hours and then they get all stirred up again. I'm really wiped out from all of it that we've had to endure this week.

Dad is back in the nursing home and is doing better than we were led to believe. Kimberly has stopped vomiting for today and hopefully will be much better by Tuesday for Joshua's surgery. If all goes well, we are planning a trip to Richmond, VA to see what can be done about making my father's life a more pleasant experience. My granddaughter, Tabitha, will be turning 14 this Friday and my granddaughter, Suzy (ever the spoiler) is in trouble again. Selective memory in teens is, indeed, a world wide disease! Seems she 'forgot' that she had been forbidden to ever use a tanning booth and tried to get her Grandmother Gillam to take her! She's going to be grounded (again) for sure!

Doesn't she look like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth! LOL!

Kim tried to speak with my father to wish him a happy father's day this morning but he is refusing to talk again. I sent him this cyber card in the hopes that the early photo of me and my brother will cheer him:

Papers: Retro Diva-Tuscany; Template: Trish H Designs; Font is Century 725 Adobe

This is the birthday card I made for Tabitha. For some reason, I couldn't find a newborn photo of her? Old age, again!

Papers: Christina Renee-Necessities #10; JessicaBolton pastiche;Adrienne Richardson -LoveActually -Sunshine Group; Tracey Sims-Altered States; Alpha Flergs-Onyx Dance w/Flergs Glitter; Template -altered/Jphillips, all at Scrapbook Graphics

Things are so jumbled around here that I used templates to make both of these cards which made it easy to scrap quickly. I printed out Tabba's and emailed Dad's.

Well, since Kim is doing better, I'm going to go to my friend, Ginni's, house and celebrate Father's Day with them. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. And, again, thank you so much for keeping me and my family in your prayers!

Oh, she is gorgeous! She has your look and spunk too!!! Tell her about St. Tropez Auto-Bronzant Lotion. Cheaper (25.99) and will keep her alive. carries it. Smart celebrities use it. I will be thinking about your little man and his surgery. They heal fast even though it feels like it takes forever. I can't wait for your dear daughter to feel better. My Mama all ways says quality of life is better than quanity. I hold that near my heart. Makes me cry to think of it. Take care, Kara
