Today is my Aunt Marlis’ birthday! She comments on here often and it’s so fun to read what she has to say, especially when she’s reminiscing. I’ve enjoyed her childhood stories and because of them I feel like I know my family a bit better.
Aunt Marlis is a gifted painter. I have several things around my house that she’s painted and I treasure them. It’s fun to see what new works she’s completed.
She is also a proud Grandma Tootsie to Ian and a loving mom to Kandis. Aunt Marlis spends her retirement days at her lake home – going for walks, taking pictures, painting and being a caregiver to her husband Richard.
Happy Birthday, Aunt Marlis!!!! You said you like cats, so here’s a kitty picture for you!
Our next door neighbor has a crawl space with an opening. Therefore, every stray cat in the neighborhood goes under there to have her kittens. When they’re several weeks old they come out, which brings much happiness into the girls’ lives. We are getting tired of finding homes for cats!!! This week a litter of four little fur balls came out to explore. The girls are having a ball!
Jessica brought home a cute little pumpkin from school this week. She immediately wanted to gut it. Four kids and one little pumpkin just doesn’t work. The picture says it all!
