Madelines Memory

A Little Bit About.....

My photo
Madeline was my grandmother on my mother's side. She was an amazing little Irish woman. How blessed we were to have her. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I am the wife of my bestfriend, the mother of four amazing kids ages 25, 22, 17 and 4. I am a grandma to 2 beautiful little boys and the mom-in-law to a terrific man. I come from a big wonderful family. My parents are my idols. My dad was always the silent one and my mom was the "tough" one. I have so much admiration for them and love being their daughter. I have 4 sisters and one brother, but I only have 3 surviving sisters now. My sister Michele passed away suddenly in 1989. I married into an amazing Italian family. I believe in God and Angels, and Ghosts. Not bad ones, but ones that just can't decide if they should stay or go. I believe that if you want something bad enough, you just need to believe and it will be yours. I believe that everyone means something to someone and this life without you would be miserable.

Pink Saturday and Here I Am.......

I am so sorry all of my blogging friends, I have not been too involved with my blog lately and I certainly have been a terrible Pink Saturday participant (or non-participant). All is well with me, but it just seems that my little 2 year old has been keeping me soooo preoccupied that I haven't had time to do much.
We recently made a trip up to Modesto to welcome home our Hero, my nephew Frankie, from Iraq. My sister Marcia was such an amazing hostess and party planner for the occasion. Her pictures of her little red cottage DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE. She has done such wonderful things to her little home and it is truly a welcoming place to be.
My niece, Maggie and her husband Glen recently purchased a home in Modesto and they were so generous to allow us to stay there for the weekend......Maggie told me that they had not even stayed there yet!! WOW, how sweet and giving is that!?
It was also the first time we got to see our little Julie Mae in person.....she really is an absolute beauty. (as you can see)

I hope you all have an amazing Pink Saturday and I will really try to visit more often.
