Saturday 9: Family Ties

Saturday 9: Family Ties
Hosted By Sam -

1. Where and when were you born? October 13, 1970 in Farmington, Missouri, USA

2. Do you have siblings? If yes, tell us more. I have one brother, Brian, that is three years younger than me. He is an awesome brother!

3. What are your parents’ names? My dad is William "Bill" and my mom is Vickie. They are both deceased and I still miss them.

4. Did you (or do you) know all four of your grandparents?
I never got to meet my dad's parents. They both died years before I was born. My mother's parents lived next door to us so I knew them from the day I was born. Grandma died in 1981 and Grandpa died in 1988.

5. Do have children? If yes, tell us about them. If no, do you want them?
I have a 19-year-old daughter (Vickie) and a 15-year-old son (Colt). Vickie has one child (my grandson), Jeremiah ...he is nearly 3 months old.

6. Do you still live in the general area that you grew up in?
I live three hours away from where I was born and raised. I don't go home much not that my parents and grandparents are gone.

7. Do you have cousins? If yes, are you or have you been close?
I have a lot of cousins. Growing up I saw them often, but now that we are all adults we don't see each other.

8. How often does your family all get together?
My dad's side of the family tries to get together once a year..but I have not went to the reunions in the last several years. It gets to be too much of a hassle. Mom's side of the family tends to only get together for funerals.

9. Is your significant other close to your family?
My boyfriend seems to get along with my brother.


  1. I would not have guessed you for a grandmother. But being a grandparent is very cool now, isn't it? Happy weekend!!

  2. Being a grandmother makes me feel really old :( BUT it is also a good feeling.
