Hi Everyone!

Over the last 6 months I have shared with all of you the deaths of my sister, Gayle and her husband and the near death and health problems of my dear brother Vince. None of you know how much I appreciate all the goodness you have sent to me. So today I wanted to share a bit of happiness in my family. First off I am the oldest of 6 kids. I have 4 brothers and of course my sister Gayle. Vince is the youngest btw. So my next to the youngest brother, Pat, has two children Cory who is married and has one child and Chris who has just graduated college. He attended the University of Washington, Pullman. So here is part of my family on a happy day.
Wishing all of you a great day today
baby Chloe, Cory, Pat, Chris, and Pat's wife Tobi

My brother Steve, Chris, and Pat. Can you tell they are family???

  1. Great photos, Nicole! I'm so glad you posted them, and it's wonderful to hear the "smile" in your words. I can tell you have a wonderful family (and so do they!).


  2. You have a most lovely family Miss Nicole. It is so easy for the "good things" to fall into the cracks when the "hard times" seem to take over. Seeing this young man graduate and the look of promise in the future is what we all strive for. Still, you can't forget those that are ill...but aren't good times a wonderful distraction for just a minute? Sending you and yours healing thoughts and a big congrats to the grad! hugs beth

  3. Great photos! Thanks for sharing. :) Theresa

  4. Thanks for sharing those happy moments with us!

  5. Those good moments are so important, when we seem to be overwhelmed by the bad ones. Enjoy them!!!! Life is too short to do otherwise!

  6. Those smiles are worth a million bucks! Thank you for sharing, Nicole! Aryd'ell
