Our Family Together

Hey to all. I didn't finish the last post but, my gal Loretta took over for me. I did take some pictures of Loretta's large family. I didn't/couldn't get them all because those kids were moving around faster than a jack rabbit in a patch of turnips!
  Friday nite, the 23th was Gumbo night, her sisters Patricia and Linda mustva' thought they were cooking for the whole town with all those large pots. Shrimps and crabs were stacked way high. You can see the gumbo on our 1st blog. 
  Saturday 24th, all the youngun's got their gifts, and games were played, especially bingo. Prizes were given for everything! No fireworks or fire this year because it rained and still raining. We need it though! Casseroles, and pasta-shrimp, etc., salad, breads, desserts- cakes, potato pies, peach cobblers, banana puddings, chocolate pies, pecan pies and the likes served with coffee.
  Sunday was the big meal. Turkey, smoked and fried, ham, some more shrimp, crabs, etc. cornbread dressing, greens of all sorts, mac-n-cheese, potato salad, candied potatoes, congealed salads, and I can't remember what else. I'm dizzy thinking about it-them sisters sure like to cook!  Heeeeeheeeee!
  Here are some of them in pictures: click on them to enlarge

This is our 2nd oldest daughter Vonetta. She came in Friday to help out with her Mom.

This is my 2nd grand Carly, Vonetta's only. She's headed off to college. She's made her old poppie proud! 

This gal here is Loretta's 2nd sister Linda with her hubs Willie

Well, i'm sorry 'bout this picture but these two sweet gals are my mom in-law on the left and aunt in-law on the right. They are serving up the Gumbo!

Auntie still serving Gumbo
Patricia, on the left, after cooking all that gumbo was real tired. That's Yvette another sister, sitting beside her and her daughter, Jackie sitting on the floor.
Jackie finally looked at me with the camera. That Briana, Yvette's grand, sitting in the chair.

There's my sweet mom in-law. She didn't want her picture took but I told her she was a looker all the time. That brought a smile to her face. I want ya'll to know, she's the best dang mom in-law God put on this earth!

Mikisha and her hubs. That's her youngun' there too!
They said this one is Anna, there's so many I can't remember 'em!
And this is Arlette's son  Rashard
This is Arlette in the kitchen cleaning up

Here's Eric. He's Patricia's oldest all 6'5" of him!

And this is Patricia's hubs LJ with one of his grand's JJ. Yep, we got a bunch of j's in this family!

  Loretta told me not to put all these pictures up, so I'll stop here, but I just wanted all of you to see what a good family I lucked into. All of us brother-in-laws feel this way! They are truly a loving and giving family. I guess that's why we love them some fierce!
  Have ya'll enjoyed your holiday? I did! Yeah I know its over, but there is still one more coming. You just might as well keep up the spirit!! Heeeheee! Guess I'll shut her down now.
Wish all of you a wonderful evening. Take care and be happy! Loretta sends her love to you too!
  This is the Hubster, ya'll be good now!

Good Morning Ladies

It is so good to be able to join you all once again, although it will not be one-hundred-percent.
  In case I haven't gotten around to visiting and thanking you, please accept this heartfelt thanks for your beautiful words of encougagement, well wishes and sentiments.

  James and I will be forever grateful for your generosity. Just to clarify for some who asked what really happened to me...

  I took cold meds that I had a reaction to, and the fall was from my passing out. My blood pressure and blood sugar went up extremely high.

  My poodle, Ashley...my love, is/was, who saved me from lying on that floor, by getting James' attention outside. Our connection is so strong and he's always looking after me.
  The hairs on the nape of my neck stand on end when I relate this! He has not left my side...I had to carry him to the doctor's office with me, but James sat with him in the car when I went in...he whined the entire time I was away!

  I am so thankful to the Lord for not having serious complications from this ordeal, my memory has been a little slow, and I have somewhat limited use of my arm and problems with my back from the fall, but PT will give me some relieve and of course, your prayers have helped! Thanks again!

Please don't forget to enter the giveaway on our blog #1...we thought we would include some sweets for the sweet friends who visit. lol.
So, hurry and enter to win. Hope you are having an outstanding day

Warmest Wishes,
