Our family is all about "memories memories". So starting this year as each of our children, their spouses and their children (our grandkiddos) celebrate their birthdays, I am going to share a little bit about them. Angela, one of our wonderful daughter-in-loves (Randy's wife) had her birthday last week. Bless her heart, she was not feeling well and I think her celebration will come later on.

Now I want to share about the joy that Angela is in our lives. She is always so caring, concerned about each one in our family. She has such a tender heart and has a real gift of a "listening ear" and "compassionate spirit". She rejoices when we rejoice and she weeps when we weep. Her job as a nursing supervisor is very stressful, as she works in an extended care facility on the week-end shift. But she takes most things there in stride and has such a love for her patients and employees.  

She is an incredible wife and mother. She loves our Randy so much and their precious "gift from the Lord", daughter Aniston. So I am posting a picture of Angela at Aniston's 3rd birthday party the first of December this past year. Aniston had a "Hello Kitty" party and what fun it was. When it came time to light the candles and sing happy birthday, Aniston slid down in her chair and hid. But on went the singing and Aniston finally came up to blow out her candles. As Angela was cutting Hello Kitty cake, Aniston proceeded to pick off first Hello Kitty's nose and ate it (all of these were sugar pieces), followed by both eyes, all the whiskers and was headed to the large pink bow on Miss Kitty's head. Angela to Aniston. "don't you think that you have had enough?" Aniston to Angela, "I don't think so!!" With that Angela lifted off the candy bow and Aniston popped 1/2 of the bow in her mouth and then turned to her mommy and this was the thank you kiss you are seeing. A kiss filled with icing and pink bow, but most of all filled with LOVE!! What a very special "daughter" you are to us, Angela.
