MOM and DAD~~~I MISS YOU!!!!

"Mom" What a little hottie she was;)

"Dad" look at how handsome he is....and so young too!

This is one of my favorite pictures of them it was at a friends wedding!

This was New Year's eve 1990 4 months before we were married...Dad acting the fool as usual! (ha ha) Go ahead laugh at my perm~~~it was the style then darnit it all!

Samantha's first birthday she was soooo cute~~~love this pic of me and mom!

Proud grandpa with Samantha!

Three, my mom and her mom ( my grandmother) she was a seamstress and every time I sew I ask for her helping hands and guidance...still chokes me up....I miss her!
"Thanks for your help grandma with making Jacob's coverlet"

Daddy showing off his muscles! Not bad for an old guy huh? ( lol just kidding dad)
The tattoo is a sword with the words "Death before Dishonor"
Something he taught me at a very young age!

My mom with Jacob at 3 days old-----probably one of my favorite pictures of my mom EVER!

Visiting mom and dad after we moved~~this was taken at Canada's Wonderland for all my Canadian bloggers and commenter's;)

Mom trying to coax Sam to walk`~~~ didn't she look soooo cute here?

Picture of my parents holding Samantha the day she was born.....they were so happy and proud!

My parents the day of my cute do they look?

Last finally gave in and decided to not dye her hair anymore she just turned 60 in August....she still looks awesome to me!

My daddy with the most soft blue, gentle eyes you ever did see....
Mom has always shied away from the camera so it's never easy getting her picture (hoping with age she will get slower and make it easier to catch her< lol)
I hate that I live 900 miles away from mom and dad! I miss you both so much more than you will ever realize....when I am home and sick I miss you even more! Please hurry and retire daddy so you can come and stay awhile~~~~we all miss both of you so much! Daddy I know you think that emailing and blogging is impersonal at times but this is truly from the heart!
~~~~Biggest hugs~~~~
"Halfpint"(you know what this means daddy)

Blogging friends I am feeling a little better, I will see the vascular surgeon Nov. 12 Wednesday morning;)

That's a beautiful tribute to your parents. They must be proud of you.
Thank God your saying that to them while they are here to respond.

Thank you for that walk through their lives & yours. You are lucky to have both parents still! My dad passed away at age 68 (9 yrs ago) & my mom is going through something (not sure what) but she is distancing herself from everyone.

Lisa, You have a beautiful family. I love all of the old pictures. It is hard not living by your family. Especially when you're hurting. I sure wish my family could hug me and make my pain go away for even a few minutes. My mom lives in IL. So, do my sisters. That's approx. 7 1/2 hours away. My daughter & grand-daughters live in Tx. That is about 16 hours away. I am really.. homesick, too!! Sometimes blogging is my only way to express myself. My family does read my blog, facebook, myspace, emails...It's just not the same.

Oh Frenchie....beautiful post...I know how you feel...we were stationed over 800 miles aways from my parents years ago and they were many a time I would call them in the middle of the night crying just to hear their voices...we had to travel alot back then but when it was over I knew I'd come back 'home' and never leave again...glad you are feeling better girl....take care.

nikkicrumpet said...

When your mom was and here look SOOOO much a like. Your parents are such a great looking pair! I can see you in both of them. I know how you feel about being so far parents live about 2900 miles away!! And since my dad won't fly I hardly ever get to see him. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better. I sure hope the vascular surgeon has the answers! Take care of yourself...and thanks for sharing your wonderful parents with us all!

Michael said...

Bo said...

Oh Lisa girl, you are so LUCKY to have your parents still in your life...and they were & are LOOKERS! I just know they miss you and their grands as much as you miss them... Hugs, ;-) Bo

Shannon said...

How sweet! You have some great family pics there. I lived 800+ miles away from my parents for a few years and it was awful. I know how you miss them!

Lisa, thank you for sharing your family photos... I can imagine how homesick you must be ... I'm betting that your parents miss you just as much as you miss them. I wish your daddy would take a big break and go visit you for the winter. If your parents could be 'snowbirds' that might be fun. :-) - hugs and warm wishes for a quick recovery. Sincerely, Sheryl/SherylCanadianGirl

SchmeckyGirl said...

How adorable was Samantha?!?!?! Wow. I have the same pic of Peyton with the gift bow on her head. lol.

Your mom is very pretty and your dad, well, yes, he is a hottie! lol.

I'm sorry you miss them. My parents live about half an hour from me but they drive me crazy. lol.

Great pics!!! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Lisa...your parents are adorable...I can see why you miss them. I hope the doctors get down to the bottom of your medical issues very soon...sending prayers your way! Susan

Bridget said...

What a beautiful post Frenchie, I loved meeting your parents. They are both cute, no wonder you are so cute too.
Good luck with the doctor tomorrow. I hope they can tell you something helpful.
Hugs, Bridget

mrsben said...

Lisa, my thoughts are with you today with wishes for the Vascular Surgeon to have only good news for you.
Your parents are adorable. Does your father still have a fetish for hats? My father always wore them too; much nicer than a cap :)So debonair and sauve!

Naz said...

Such a beautiful tribute to your parents. You are so blessed to have them albeit 900 miles away.

Best of luck at the doctor's today. I hope you will be on the road to recovery very quickly.

Shelia said...

Hi sweet Frenchiness! What a sweet tribute to your parents - they were and are just cute as they can be. I can feel your love for them in this post.
I'm praying you have a good visit with the doctor today and they can discover how to treat you and get you back up and running!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Absolutely wonderful post and photos! Your parents are beautiful!

Loved the baby pictures..oh my...

Hope they come to a diagnosis, for you, soon and it is easily treatable. Being a lab rat is no fun!

PS: I kept my hair colored for years. When I was 62, I decided to let it go to it's natural color. I'm glad I did. Your mother's hair is beautiful.

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Lisa your blog is not updated on my page!! Sorry I'm late, now your parents look so in love in every pic!

your mum is such a beauty, and your dad, hunky!! (am I speaking about a dad here? lol!!)

Your kids must miss them too!

Buffie said...

What a beautiful post French, It is very hard being a long way from your parents, I know, I hope all went well at the hospital yesterday and I am glad to read you are feeling a little better, take care sweetie, hugs, Kathy

Twice as Nice said...

What a good looking family you have. I'm sure it's especially hard when you're not feeling well not to have your parents near.

I hope you get some good news and have a speedy recovery.

P.S. Yes, I too had that wonderful perm!! Yikes, what were we thinking? And Gordon sure had some hair didn't he? Oh, just love going down memory lane!

onlymehere said...

French, I see much of you in your mother! I wish that they lived closer to you or vice versa, especially during this difficult trial with your health. I truly hope the vascular surgeon can give you some answers. Hang in there sweetie, and I'll keep you in my prayers. Cindy

Justine said...

Lisa, this post was so damn sweet, and it was great to see all of these pictures. Holy crap, your dad had some hot bod back in the day, huh? Still a handsome bugger too. Your mom is really gorgeous. Now I see why you're so pretty!

Casey said...

Lynne said...

Your parents are come from great stock. I see you're having a few medical issues.. I'll be sending prayers out for you..hugs ~lynne~

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

What did the vascular surgeon say??
I am praying for you. I still have frozen shoulder. I am so sad!!

Ma'dame French said...

I will try not to cuss but the surgeon's office rescheduled my appt....I am pissed! Now I have to wait until next Tuesday! Just FYI for those that have asked~~~thanks from the heart;) French

Naz said...

Thanks for the update Lisa. I was worried about you.

mrsben said...

Lisa, I thought we only had 'that problem' here in Canada where cancellation of appointments and even surgical procedures are the norm. (Though our Health Care system is free, sometimes the price is very high when a patient has to wait literally monthS ....and its too late.)

Glad to hear you are holding your own and next week you will know more. PLEASE let us know how you are keeping. With concern and Hugs -Brenda-

squawmama said...

My little french fry... what a beautiful post you have here... I miss one day blogging and I am so far behind... I've been so worried about you and pray all is ok... Your parents are beautiful people... of course I knew that because the raised a beautiful young woman... you are an inspiration to us all and I know your Mom & Dad are proud... and BTW your day is HOT!!! I love you sweetie... Wish I was close to help you out...

(((HUGS & LOVE)))

Elizabeth said...

What a wonderful tribute to your parents! I lived 2,000 miles from mine for about 8 years, and only saw them twice a year, which is still a lot more than other people. As they began to age and I was single again, I decided to move back to the area. Now of course, it's them taking care of me, not what I intended, but it's good to be closer with a chronic medical condition.
You can take me out of the Blogg'ville story. I read it, but I never comment, as you know. How about having someone blow me up?!

Mary / Mariah said...
