Fall is here

Beautiful fall weather here in central Minnesota.  Crisp cool air, bright blue skies and fall colors.  We've had frost here the last two mornings, brrrr.  I think the trees are even prettier this year it seems like in one week they turned just beautiful! 
Yesterday we celebrated my baby brother's 44th birthday.  On Tuesday we will celebrate my wonderful Dad's 77th birthday, that will be a day to take in and be thankful for indeed!  On Thursday we celebrate my sister's 51st birthday.  My sister from Colorado flew in late Friday night and will be here until Wed. to help with the celebrations.  It's great that she's here it's been so hard for here being so far away right now.
As you all may know my Dad has been suffering from brain cancer since the middle of Feb this year.  He is declining a little each day but is so brave, strong and cheerful most of the time, he's a REAL hero.  It is the hardest thing anyone could endure on all sides the person going through it and the family and friends that love the person.  Our family is staying strong and together and that is all you can ask for during this.  We are all still going day to day minute to minute grateful for all the time we have together.  So on Tuesday we will celebrate that our Dad is with us for one more birthday.  Happy 77th Birthday to the most wonderful Dad anyone could have, I love you SO much!
