it's been awhile....

It's been awhile since my last post! I spent all last week at my parents house and tried to take a break from the computer[except business of course!]. It was a great week being at home, seeing old friends, and spending time with family! Kaz was able to join us on Thursday after work and that made it even better!
I've mentioned several times my friend Mr. Billy but never really told you anything about him...
He is a special special man to me. We met in high school and I fell in love with him. Mr. Billy and his wife Sarah are very dear to me and have played a part in so many big events in my life. Both of my granddads passed away when I was very young, so Mr. Billy is like a granddad to me. I love going to see him and Mrs. Sarah when I'm at home. Mr. Billy just moved to a nursing home so I was able to see him twice while I was at home. The first time was with my mom. While talking with him he "mentioned" that if it wasn't too much trouble he would love for me to make him some pumpkin bread:)
The 2nd time we went to see him was one of the most special memories that I will always remember...Growing up my grandmother[Nanny] loved visiting people in the nursing home. As a family we would go, bring the residents in a big communal room, and sing hymns to them. I've always remembered doing that and we got to do it again for Mr. Billy[me, my dad, mom, and good friend Brittainy]. As time passed, more and more residents joined us and it was a very special time. Mr. Billy cried almost the whole time, but he loved it. To see a short video click here!
Before we left Santa Clause made a surprise visit!
