¡Hola de España!

Well... I haven't written in my other blog and should probably be sleeping, but I just wanted to give a quick hello and say thanks to Chrislyn for putting this together. I bet Aunt Ann and Aunt Rae would get a kick out of it, I know my mom was touched.

It thought I would also mention that even though I couldn't be there when Aunt Ann passed away, I thought of you all everyday and it was a hard choice to make.

Over Christmas break I went into a very old and beautiful Spanish church and lit a candle in her memory. I know today is her birthday... not because I am good at remembering birthdays (as we all know I am not) but because my mom told me. In my heart, I light another candle and say a prayer for all of us today. I wish for good health and good fortune to all of us and those we love.

Good times on the Cruise!

The first posting!

Hey Everyone!
I created this blog for all of us in memory of Anna Redes, my Mother. I realized how much she passed on to Blake and I in stories. There was always a time our house.

Since our family is so scattered across the country and the world, our daily living details are disappearing from each others lives, I thought that maybe this could become a way for us to post pictures, daily happenings, joys and our struggles. It maybe easy to get on the computer and put it in a blog then to pick up the phone.

I miss all of you so much and I think of you so much. I talk to Blake about going to Aunt Rae's house, Aunt Rosie's and Stephanies........but there are so many other memories that need to be remembered, rejoiced and current ones celebrated.

So there is a way for you all to post to this blog and to receive emails when someone posts to this blog......I hope this blog is like our family.......goes forth and multiplies.....XOXOX..Chrislyn
