Twenty-four years ago today, a spirited whirlwind of a girl blew into our lives:
Watch out, world – this one is loaded for bear…..
….and we have never been the same. Where has all that time gone?
God has a wicked sense of humor – ask any family that has more than two kids, and they will tell you that the third kid threw them for a loop. Just when you think you have the whole “parenting” thing figured out – you’re thinking you know everything there is to know about raising kids – the third one comes along, and you realize that you don’t have the first CLUE…..
By the time Sarah came along, we had been parents for 6 years. Poor Sarah got the “leftovers” – we were a lot calmer about things, but we were also just plain tired. Rachel was starting kindergarten and Michelle was only a year old, so Sarah got whatever energy we could muster up at the end of the day.
Thirty-six years ago today, two starry-eyed kids said “I do”….
To my wonderful husband, Paul – thank you for all of the special memories, and for making me so incredibly happy.
This came out in 1996 – the first time I saw it, I almost fell off of the couch, I was laughing so hard.
All these years later, it still makes me giggle😛

It’s so hard to believe that it’s been 25 years since we welcomed our second daughter into the world. Where has the time gone? Our little girl has grown into a beautiful young woman, but it seems like just yesterday we were welcoming her into the world.
Not my real parents – they don’t want their faces shown, so I got to pick a random picture of any old couple (That’ll teach ’em…..)
On this day 57 years ago, my Mom and Dad tied the knot.
I’m glad they did, ‘cuz otherwise, I wouldn’t be here….
In honor of this occasion, I’d like to dedicate one of my favorite songs to these two crazy kids – “After All These Years” by Journey:
Happy Anniversary, you two – I’m so glad you are my parents ♥♥♥
Statement by the President, August 6, 1945
THE WHITE HOUSE
IMMEDIATE RELEASE — August 6, 1945
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima, an important Japanese Army base. That bomb had more power than 20,000 tons of T.N.T. It had more than two thousand times the blast power of the British “Grand Slam” which is the largest bomb ever yet used in the history of warfare.
The Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor. They have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet. With this bomb we have now added a new and revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces. In their present form these bombs are now in production and even more powerful forms are in development.
It is an atomic bomb. It is a harnessing of the basic power of the universe. The force from which the sun draws its power has been loosed against those who brought war to the Far East.
“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
Today marks the anniversary of the first manned Moon landing. Those of us who are old enough to remember seeing it live can still recall the awe and wonder of that moment when Neil Armstrong stepped down and set foot where no man had gone before.
