Lacey at her high school graduation.Remember earlier, when I said what a sweet, loving child Lacey was? Well that all changed when she was a teenager! All that spoiling sure had a price tag. She was the moodiest, crankiest teenager I have ever seen! Thank God she seems to have outgrown that phase in the past couple of years! Whenever I become frustrated with my own moody teenage daughter, I remember Lacey and praise God again. (Sorry, Lacey, but you know how true it is! You also know I love you!)
Recently Lacey got married and unfortunately I was unable to travel to the wedding. Mom just sent me a cd of the pictures so here are some of them:
Lacey and Casey.

First Landing State Park
We each took turns "monkeying around" after our picnic lunch at First Landing State Park.

Nana and Me
This is Nana, my nephew Brandon, and my daughter Heather (summer 1992). Nana had moved back to Virginia by this time. Heather and I had flown to Missouri to visit family and Nana was visiting at the same time. She has always been very involved in Girls Scouts and camp and brought all the babies matching camp tshirts.
Nana and I are usually both back in Missouri for Thanksgiving. Here she's making molasses taffy. Somewhere I have some great pictures of this evening. Somewhere...
One of those Thanksgiving trips "home" Nana treated us to the Rockettes in Branson. It was a fabulous show and we enjoyed it so much!!!
All the time I lived in Missouri I had never gone to Branson during the holidays. I had always wanted to see the Christmas lights in Silver Dollar City. So, after the Rockettes show, we headed to Silver Dollar City to do just that! This is one of the floats in the parade.
In one of the shops there was a Santa statue so we all took turns sitting on Santa's lap!!!
I love it when Nana comes to visit me in Texas. We find new places to explore each time she comes. These pictures were taken during her visit a couple of years ago when we went to Gruene.
Our waiter snapped our picture for us.
Thanks Nana for always making me feel special and always supporting me! You're one in a million and I can't wait until your next visit!!!
These are the scrapbook pages I created for a celebration for Nana a couple of years ago.

Mike: "You did NOT seriously just take a picture of me with a sausage in my mouth!"
Marty: "Mike, these ribs are TO DIE FOR!"
Marty: "Here Mikey, taste this. It's not hot!"
Mike: "Forget the spoon. I'm drinkin' my corn!"
This is me and my sister in law Debbie. She's brand new to the world of blog (just this morning!). You can visit her here. Drop by and leave some love in her comments.
