Updates, New Weekly Deals, New Clearance Rack Items

Morning Peeps!

I am back this week with lots to share after deciding last minute to take some time off from social media and blogging. Hubby and I have been pretty busy around here. Finishing up those blasted taxes, jury duty, wrapping things up with the architect and getting ready for a really big event.

This past weekend was the 15th Annual Basketball Tournament in Memory of my cousin Tonia. Every year my family has this big basketball tournament to raise money for her scholarship fund. My cousin loved basketball and loved helping people. This year my husband and I created a website in her memory and another way for people to donate to her scholarship fund. If you would like to see the website and read about her story you can visit toniasfund.com This year was the 15th Anniversary of when she was killed. Tonia was the youngest of us 5 grand-kids on my mom's side. I was fortunate to be able to grow up with my cousins and see them almost everyday so where more like siblings than cousins. Even though its been 15 years there is a hole there. We had an amazing awesome turnout at the tournament and had a lot of fun! Thank you to everyone who came and supported our family, means so much! Here is a few pictures from the tournament.

All ages can play but we really focus on the little kids, working with them and teaching them how to play basketball.

This picture is my cousins boy, Tonia would have been his Aunt. When he signed up for basketball in his town and he got Tonia's basketball number by per chance, his coach didn't even know. This will be his number all through his school years too. The crazy part it was all of our numbers too when we were kids, we went to different schools and didn't plan it.

Thanks again for your support!!!

In Memory

Its been a very long week here but I wanted to take a few minuets and post to my blog. A lot of people have been sending me cards, emails and phone calls and it has moved me greatly that in our time of need people that I don't know well have taken the time to express there sympathies to us. I wanted to share with you all a picture of my husbands Aunt. This death was very hard because she committed suicide. She went on a trip and did this so its been a nightmare trying to get her remains back here. Unfortunately her ashes will not be here in time for the funeral on Monday. She was an amazing person, sweet, kind, caring and loved all her nieces and nephews greatly. It was something completely out of character for her to do. We as a family will struggle to understand why this happened but we will remember her laughter, her smile and her love. We will never forget all the special moments that we got to share with her.

The funeral is Monday Aug. 3rd at the Calvary Lutheran Church. Visitation is 10am and the funereal is 11 am for those of you that have been asking. Thank you again for you thoughts and prayers.On behalf of me and Colleen's family.
