Working on my Hopper Heritage book getting it ready for
our Hopper Family Reunion coming up in June. 
This is the first one I have given so I am just a little nervous.
These pages are of my Aunt Lillie, my Dad's older sister.
Her  laughter is a big memory for me, seems each
time Dad and Aunt Lillie were together there was lots
and lots of laughter.

I brought in my flowes from the deck right before our
first freeze back in November.  I was told if I
shook all the dirt off the geranium's and put
them in a brown paper sack and keep them in a
dark cool place during the winter they would survive.
I had nothing to lose, they would die anyway, so
I was going to try it.  I placed them on my dryer
in front of a South window.  They did so good there,
that I set the other plants on a shelf in front of
that South window and they all survived the
winter and  they are beautiful!   Anyway I
am happy with them...

We welcome Luke Evan Hendren to our family this morning

His parents are, my niece, Karia and her husband Matt Hendren.
Today is Matt's Birthday and what a Birthday he got! 

Luke has an older brother, William, who is 15 months old and a
older sister Nicole, 8 years old.  Nicole told me this morning
it was a good thing Luke was a boy because she didn't
plan on sharing her room...

husband, Percy.  This was taken about 1984.
