Last treatment?

I had my 6th cancer treatment on Thursday and hopefully it will be the last one. On the 11th of Aug. they will do a P.E.T. scan and a C.T. svan. I will meet with Dr. Hansen on the 16 of Aug. and if it is in remission there will be maintenance schedule for a couple of yrs. The Dr. is very encouraged and thinks it is in remission. If so, it is through all of yous and our faith and prayers. This has been a busy summer with all of the weddings. It is fun to go to the showers, endowments, marriages and the receptions. Of course, we don't have to do all the preparation. I just got to hold the newest grandaughter, Whitly Wilkinson while Alyson helped with the quilts. That was a treat. We will just be watching the parade on TV and that's okay. It is a great time to reflect on our pioneer ancestery. We have a lot in our family.My cousins, Gary Browning's funeral is today up by Idaho Falls. I would have so liked to go to it. He is just younger than me and had always been one of my favoites. He is the son of Thelma, my mother's sister. HE fell over a sprinkler head in his lawn and broke two vertebraes is his neck. They were able to stabalize hims and he appeared to be improving when he had a blood clot that killed him. He has had a heart condition for a long time and just went into remission from cancer. He has called and checked on me a few times and it was good to visit with him. We had a good Marriott reunion on Monte. Everything was so green and all the wild flowers were out. It was good to become more acquainted with Jim's fincee, Janice Hilton. They seem very happy. We hope all of you are doing well. Our thoughts and prayers are with you daily. We love you all! Love, Maego

Where did 75 years go?

Today is someone's 75th birthday! Can you guess who? It is not the person holding the horn.
It is of course the beautiful girl holding the flute!
This is a picture of Margo with her brother Jim.

Here is another picture with Margo and her brothers Gil and John and her mother Helen.

This picture is of Margo, Gil, her Dad Gilbert and Jim.

Margo and Jim, aren't they cute!

I really loved this picture and have decided that her Dad Gilbert, the one who is taking the picture was a great photographer and had a nice camera I am thinking.
This is Margo,Jim, Bill, and Gil.

This is Margo with her sister Susan.
Here is my movie star mother, I always have thought this picture looks like she should be in the movies!
And of course she married a movie star to match her beauty.
This is my movie star parents.

and this is the Shaw bunch! This is a picture of 5 of the kids and she is pregnant with the 6th!
This is Frank, Carolyn, Lynette, and Donene in the front, and Margo holding Nancy, and Don.

Here we are again and I have always marveled that she even had the time to sew all of our cute little outfits.
She is an amazing woman!!!

Here they are  a little later in life.

This is a picture of the family at Christmas, Carolyn is missing because she is taking the picture!

Here is the Family with the first grandchild Nathan.
Don, holding Nathan, Frank, Donene, and Ryan. In back is Margo,Carolyn, Kevin, Lynette, Valerie and Nancy.

This isn't even close to what the family is now but I think all of her grand kids are in this picture. I lost count but I think there is now about 30 -31 great grandchildren, What is it Mom! She will know because she doesn't even forget one of those many birthdays, (that alone tells you what kind of person this is!)
She certainly has been an amazing Wife, Mom, Grand Mother, Great Grand Mother, Sister, and especially a Friend to all of us.  We want to honor you on this special day and want you to know how much you are loved and appreciated!
Happy Birthday Mom!!!
We Love YOU!
