My Grandma Rushton passed away on March 5, 2010. Grandma was very bubbly. She had many friends that loved her. I remember having huge Christmas parties at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Grandma was well known for her cooking. She could have a 5 course spread on the table with a moments notice. There was always little candies and treats for the kids. Grandma loved to be outside walking around the church. She knew it would keep her in good shape. Everyone was always surprised when they learned her age because she always looked and acted 10 years younger. Grandma, I know you have found joy and happiness with those that have passed on before you. You will be remembered.

Let's see... I'm pretty simple. I like eating cookies with milk after my kids are asleep. I love trying on crazy tall shoes even though I would never buy them. I have a favorite pair of jeans that I could wear everyday. I try not to read the summary of a book before I read it so I can be totally clueless the whole time. A pair of scrubs are my absolute favorite pajamas. Old friendships are not easily forgotten for me. My eyes take on a bright baby blue when I'm tearing up. Staring up into a sky full of stars totally fascinates me. I hate saying goodbye to anyone for any reason. I always seem to move on to the new container of ice cream before I finish the old. When my boy kisses his sister it just melts my heart. I get a big silly grin on my face when my husband sends me a text message that says, "I love you," and he's in the next room. There is nothing more satisfying than spending time with my family.
