Follow Me to a Giveaway!

I think it is wonderful to be able to find natural products in the everyday products we use.  I wish I had been more informed as a young wife and mother with natural products.  I can not change the past, but I can make better choices now and for the future.

Jacqueline, from Deep Roots at Home, has another great give away!  If you are not already a follower, why not pop over to her blog for a great summer giveaway of herbal healing salves.  She is a joy to follow and always full of wonderful information!  I always come away from her blog feeling blessed!

Still Celebrating in June

One thing about having a large family there is always something or someone to celebrate!  Some months there is more celebrating than others.  I have always tried to post the celebration on the special day, but I am finding that I am stressing myself getting that done.  So, I figured it was time to play Elsa and "Let It Go". *smile*  (besides, believe it or not I only have one or two offspring who read my blog!)

So the celebrations for this post:

1) Son #2 and Daughter-in-love #2 celebrated five years of marriage on June 20!

HAPPY ANNIVERSAY!
DADDY AND I PRAY THE NEXT FIVE YEARS
ARE EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST FIVE!
XO
 
 
2) Daughter-in-love #3 celebrated her birthday on June 21!
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETIE!
DADDY AND I TRUST YOUR DAY
WAS AS SWEET AS YOU!
XO
 
There is one more June celebration to come...stay tuned!

Father's Day and Birthday

It is always neat when a birthday and a "Hallmark" day fall on the same day.  That is just what happened yesterday, 15th of June! 

First of all I want to wish a Happy Birthday to Son #4.  Yesterday Son #4 turned twenty-four!  He is so fun to be around.  The family loves it when he stops in for a visit.  There is never a dull moment with him!  He is so kind to listen to all the chatter of the younger set of nesters as they tell him all the news they have been saving up to share.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SON!
DADDY AND I LOVE YOU SO MUCH
AND ARE VERY PROUD OF ALL YOU DO!
XOXO
LOVE~  MOMMA
 
 
 
 
Second, a Happy Father's Day to my daddy and my hubby!  Both men have been great examples as earthly fathers representing our Heavenly Father.  I could not have asked for a better father to raise and guide me, nor a better man for a husband and as my children's father!
 
God is so good!


Daddy



 
The handsome man in the middle is my daddy.  On June 14, he celebrated his 85th birthday.  I thought this picture was appropriate since June 14 is also Flag Day. 
 
The above photo was taken on Labor Day 2013.  My daddy presented to me the last Spanish Flag that flew over the Intenden Palace at San Juan, which was then the Capitol Building of Puerto Rico.  My brother was presented the American flag which my great-grandfather raised on the same building on October 18, 1898.  My great-grandfather was given the distinguished honor of raising the first American flag over the Capitol Building at San Juan.
 
I had known from the time I was a small child of about 5 years old that I would one day inherit the Spanish flag and my brother would inherit the American flag, since we were the two oldest children in the family.  It was a great honor to receive a piece of history.  Both my brother and I were move to tears.  It was an honor for my daddy to present us with a piece of history and give up something that was very dear to him.
 
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!
MAY YOUR 85th YEAR BE A YEAR
OF WONDERFUL MEMORIES!
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
XO
LOVE~  "KRITTY POOH"
