A is for Adrian.
I realized as I was searching for
photos for this post that I didn't have a single
one of my great son-in-law.

my resolution for 2015 is
to get some shots of him.
Get ready Adrian!
|A is also for Artist.|
We had a lot of artwork going on
at our house this year.
|B is for Buffalo or if you|
are a Harding University graduate Bison.
These were a little scary as they
crowded around our car.
|C is for Cora.|
As many of you know, Cora
had a rough several months.
She wore a Spica Cast, but her
smiles never stopped.

smiling angel with her
cast covered by a Raggedy Ann dress
that her great-great-grandmother
Bergeron made for her mom
many years ago.

me this spring.

pretty flowers gave me.

|F is for family and how they|
are always there to help in a time
of need. Great Aunt Gail

Party which has become a yearly event.
