OMG I can't believe it has been so long since I"ve written! I plan on being a little more prolific this year. Yikes! So, since April a quick "Papa Patrick in Review"! Summer was pretty much used up raising a litter of beautiful goldendoodle pups. At the end of summer, as a little preschool vacation, Olivia and I went to a water resort in the Wisconsin Dells. Honestly, we had such a good time! It was a little chilly, but we still had a great time! Then, my little one started FOURTH grade! Yikes, can't believe it! She is growing up so fast. And I am proud of all her accomplishments. New Years Eve was spent taking care of mom/grandma in Wisconsin. She was hit by a car in October and has been slowly gaining strength ever since. God bless that lady! Olivia and I did our traditional "burning ceremony" (just ask if you don't know!), and to our delight, my mom wrote up her list too and Olivia and I burnt it along with ours at midnight. Grieving still goes on for me in regards to my brother. Signs are everywhere that he is still with me, and I believe it. He was such a big personality in our family, and is sorely missed. Well that's about it for now- stay tuned for more in 2016!
