Share the JOY=Me and my brother

Family is of utmost importance to me.

My brother is 8 years younger than I and never lived with our father.
I was 8, our sister was 6 and he was en utero when we moved in with our grandparents and our mother.

Our only sister died when I was 34 and he was 26.
It was hard for us to reminiscence about our childhood since we did not have the same things to remember.
Since our children have grown we have been able to grow closer together.

Our children want them to be present at every holiday and my brother and SIL have been like another set of grands for our children since they do not have any grandchildren of their own.

My family brings such JOY.

This was taken at my 75th birthday party
in November.

He, his wife Linda, who I love like a sister, and myself spent the day together on Tuesday and had lunch at our favorite Cracker Barrel. 
What JOY to be with these folks whom I love so much.

Go here to spread the JOY  

Neck warmer I made for our gddtr Cindy.
I looked and looked for a pattern.
Could not find what I wanted so had to make this up.
Guess what, one week later one almost exactly like this showed up on my Free Crochet site.
Even the same color.

 Bet I make some more of these.

So I know it is in style.
She loved it.
