Happy Birthday Grandma and Grandpa Nelson

Well, how cool is that when your mom marries someone who has the same birthday??? At least I am assured to never forget my Step-Dad's birthday that way!
Happy Birthday Mom-I love you, we all love you. I am glad you are not selling real estate any more, especially with the craziness of this year-Grandma's death, cleaning her house, Lee's health and now selling Grandma's house-the only problem with all this is, we never get to see you!! But, we know you are busy, and we are planning on a visit to Ripon and Berlin in August-so beware, we will be heading over there soon enough, but hopefully we see you sometime between now and then.

This picture was taken the day of my Grandma's Memorial Service in May
Sorry Grandpa Lee, I did not have time to find a new picture of you and all 3 kiddos-this was already on the computer, so for the sake of time, I settled for this one, even though it must be 4 years old-if not 5!!
We wanted to wish you a happy birthday today too!! We love you, and certainly hope the doctors get to the bottom of all these health concerns soon. You are in our thoughts and prayers every day, and we are continually lifting you up to God for healing, strength and God's peace throughout all of this.

I am very blessed to have both parents still living, and they both have remarried and have spouses we all love and enjoy being around. Our only real dilemma is that they are almost 2 hours away, and while that is do-able-it is still tough with the daily demands of the farm-

but this summer, we have determined that each month we are taking an overnight away from the farm-our sanity and our family are at stake, and WE NEED TO DO THIS!!!

So, hopefully our July visit will be with family and friends in Black Rive Falls, where we lived for the first 16 years of our marriage, and Chuck grew up. Our June trip to the Dells was such a success for all of us, family time and away time, that we are really hoping it will work out each month to continue this!

Well, time to make breakfast for my family-Hope Mom and Lee have a wonderful day on the golf course, playing, not working, and enjoy your special day together.


Chris and family
