I am sad to think of Christmas and Easter without her. On Christmas Eve, we always have her wonderful stuffed filet of sole with cheese sauce (sounds weird but believe me, it's amazing) and I hope we always will. She opened her home every Christmas morning to all of us, even when it became too much for her in recent years, and we brought the food, she still wanted it at her house. There was breakfast casserole with bacon, Honeybaked Ham, rolls, and of course, her potato salad. On Easter there was always "the egg game" where she doled out ridiculous amounts of money stuffed into little plastic eggs. Not exactly the proper focus for the holiday, but nonetheless, unforgettable, especially to her grandchildren. More honeybaked ham, more potato salad (Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining!) Lots of traditions that I want to carry on, because of her.

For Drew's birthday we had a family celebration at home with my dad, the DeShongs, the Mickelsons, and Jordan & Lindsey. It was fun to watch Uncle Davey ride the dirt bike on the front lawn! Sometimes, you just have to wear stretchy pants! The dinner fare was Seven-layer Dip, Pizza, Caesar Salad and of course, Dirt Cups for dessert.

Drew, you are a great guy and a lot of fun to be with. You are really turning into a wonderful young man, and your dad and I are grateful to see God shaping your life. I'm not sure what happened to my flat-topped, cuddly little Drewey... all I see is a tall, dark and handsome young man. I love you bud - have fun being 16! I adore you!
