Floyd & Genie.


When I grow up I want to be like these two people. They have made my week fly by- which is quite an accomplishment and compliment. These people are my Dad & Mom and I mentioned them in my last post, but they are so wonderful that they deserve another blog entry. There has been a lot of fresh whipped cream in my house this week. This stuff is equal to buttercream- but a lot less effort. I think the whole world should set aside a day just to whip up and eat batches of whipped cream. If everyone was eating this stuff, there would be happiness and joy and probably even world peace for the day. I'm not exactly sure how the lactose intolerant people would swing it, but I'm sure there is some sort of tasty substitute. Did I mention my parents have been staying with me from MN and helping me run the home and manage the kids while Chip is away?
I am blessed beyond measure when it comes to my parents. They want only the best for me...at the biggest discount possible, of course. They have a way of making the ordinary fun. Or funny. We never run out of conversation. They are so great with my kids. I will miss they immensely when they head back to their home tomorrow. I hope when I grow up and have grandkids that my kids will love me as much as I love them. I am one lucky lady when it comes to parents. And I don't take that for granted ever.

Hi Jody,
Glad to see your mom and dad made it up. Please say hi to them, pass on that my wedding date is the 6th of October. I am not sure if you read your email, but I sent one asking for everyone street address so I could add them to the guest list.
I am glad that you had a great time with your folks, makes me remember the times I spent with Mom and Dad. Cherish all the memories, as you well know, they can change in an instant. I miss my Mom more and more everyday.
You take care and say hi to the family for me,
LOVE TO YOU,
Jennifer
P.S. ignore my blogger name, really long story!
