In Memory of Richard (Rick) Roberts

A beloved BWILD sister, Corinna Roberts (treasures*created), has had a tragic loss.

Corinna's husband Richard (Rick) Roberts, age 49, suffered a fatal heart attack on May 14, 2009. He has left behind his wife Corinna as well as 4 children: Brett, Patrick, Caitlyn, and Shannan.

Corinna our friend, our sister, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Please know you are loved!

A silent thought, a secret tear,
Keeps your memory ever dear.
God took you home, it was his will,
But in our hearts, you live still.

Pictures for my family...

Apparently I have not been such a good daughter, grand-daugher, OR mother when it comes to sharing pictures... hahaha.  Now I am trying to make up for it!  Please forgive me :D

Dustin has been avoiding the camera lately I guess.  I will have to remedy that pretty quick.

We have played the same games the last 3 years.  Time for something new :D  While searching around, I found several sites with great Easter Party ideas.  Check em out!

How to fold towel animals....

My in-laws just returned from vacation. We all know that vacations breed tons of photos. As I was jealously looking through their photos, I noticed the cute towel animals. I always see these when we go on vacation and say I am going to find out how to make them... I always forget. Now, with no unpacking to do from that vacation.. hehe... I thought to look up instructions. My daughter is just delighted with my new found talent. My son, who isn't home right now, has a surprise waiting on the bathroom counter. I now realize my need for a few white towels ;)

Here are some great links for making your own towel animals...
