Love From Daddy's Lillte Girls!

This past holiday season our family celebrated my dad's 80th birthday! One of my sisters wrote our father a letter that she read to him which brought tears to all our eyes!!!
Mom and Dad!

Then it was my turn...I sang a song to my dad that I had written for him many years ago. My sisters joined in during the chorus!

"Love from Daddy's little girls"
Buttons and bows and painted toes
And frilly pinafores
It's all just for him and a silly grin cause no one loves him more
Than Daddy's little girls

We remember these times of nurseries and rhymes
Upon our Daddy's knees
A hug and a kiss or a scolding of his, both with love shinning through
For Daddy's little girls

The love he has shown now that were grown holds special memories
There's a place in our heart, Daddy's part, that grows stronger everyday
Love from Daddy's little girls

A white lacy grown on Daddy's arm, to someone waiting there
A smile on his face but a tear in his eye
When he thought he'd said good bye
To Daddy's little girls

A baby or two, then they grew
Then one more on the way
It's starting again and it's all just for him
Cause no one loves him more
Than Grandpa's little girls

The love we have known. now that we've grown holds special memories
There's a place in our hearts, Daddy's part that grows stronger everyday
Love form Daddy's little girls

Our family is now asking for your prayers as our Daddy just needed emergency surgery to repair an intestinal blockage. The surgery was successful but he is still in the hospital at this time. The doctor tells us that he is on the road to recovery even though he has hit a bump or two along the way!
I have a trip scheduled next week to the PNW to spend some time with him, it has been hard being down here in the desert so far away from him.
I love you Daddy!
Your Desert Rose!

Back in the Blog Saddle...Again !

My plan of trying to blog on a more regular basis fell apart last month when my computer had to go in for repairs and it ended up getting a new operating up grade. This was a long process because everything has to be wiped from the hard drive and then reinstalled. Although the system looks pretty much the same and for the most part works the same...I now need to access my photo's differently than I used to. And my system I used to file my pictures and organise them for blogs or easy access was that I had files all over my desktop!
I also recently began using dropbox for back up storage and that was confusing for me too.

So...this blog is really just a test blog with a few pictures from random files I have chosen to figure out the new process of getting my photos for blogging! By the way...I have been reading and commenting on the blogs I follow although there are some blogs my comments would not go through. I am hoping that issues will be resolved now with the new upgrade!!!
I decided to look for pictures in 4 different files that were taken on 4 different days although it is the same trail and same fabulous photo opp stop!

My Sissy's and me last year!
My nieces and their honeys last year!
Good friend Darleene last year!
Baby Doll's hubby & son 2 years ago!
All and all I was eventually able to find these pictures but I really had to rack my brain as to the name of the file the picture would be in. The hardest to find was Baby Doll's photo because it was in a file that is in a file!!! I think this is going to take me awhile to figure it out and I am sure I will find a few shortcuts along the way. Hope every one's holiday season was terrific!!!
Your Desert Rose!
