November is a big month for birthdays in my family. Especially, coming just before Christmas. 🙂

My granddaughter, Courtney starts us off in late October with her birthday and my daughter Lesa is shortly after.. kids

Grandson, Dustin, is in there between Court and Lesa. He was 22 this year. I remember the day he was born. My first grandchild!


Next comes Chloe. Dale’s son Ben started a family and I was so excited to have a baby grandchild again. Now she is 6.


We get about a week off of birthdays before they begin again. My second granddaughter, Melanie, hit the big 21 mark in her life this month.


I think I’m getting old! NAW!

When we went to pick out a dog out of a litter of about 9 or more 15 years ago we had a family connection. On October 13 Morgan and Amika (Dale’s sister’s dog) were born. They are Golden Retrievers. Well, Dale’s mom was also born on this day and her middle name is Golden! It was suppose to be this way, right!

Dale’s mom is 90 today and after talking with her she is excited and has many plans for her birthday and having fun. Go mom! As you can tell, both of these old gals are doing just fine!

I will add that my birthday is this month also but we won’t talk about that.

It is a festive month and all these people (and dogs) have blessed our lives for many years. I’m so lucky!

Life is great! God is amazing with His love and grace.
