William Wayne Roch July 16 1958 - December 22 1985

This is my dad and my Grandma Billy. I believe that this was taken not too long before he passed away.

It has been 25 years ago today that I lost my dad. Strangely enough one of my daughters reminded me this morning by asking me when my daddy died.

He was 27 years old with his whole life ahead of him. I was 6 years old, my sister Jenny was 2 and my brother Cw hadn't hit his first month yet. We had traveled to Houston with our mother to celebrate Christmas with family. He was going to meet us there. Early that morning my sister woke up hysterically crying. This was out of character for her. It happened to be around the time that our dad was killed in a head on collision. I still don't know how my mother got through it all.

He has been missed everyday since then. The three of us are all grown up now. Cw is his spitting image and just celebrated his 25th birthday. Jenny is 27, married and has her own baby. I'm 31 married and have my 3 girls. I hope that we make him proud. He has 4 amazing granddaughters now! My Maddy even looks a lot like him.

We love you and you're in our hearts until we meet again.

What's on Julie's Phone? * A little late!

Okay so it's Wednesday and I'm a day late! But it's also the week of Christmas and my kids are home and I have to clean my entire house to host Christmas for my family this weekend...

Anywho, let's get to it! If you haven't already, head over to The Lowe Family News and check out this awesome linky that Jessica does every week! It's super fun to see what everyone captures on their phones each week!

Here's what's on mine!

The girls all asked for roller skates this year for Christmas! Not roller blades, old school roller skates! I am super excited because I've always secretly wanted to be a roller derby chic! These are the ones I bought! Shhh don't tell!

You know the dresses from last weeks post? Here are the sweeties I made them for! Do you think they like them!?

Maddy and Gibby got to carol for the older kids at school last week. Gibby got all dressed up and was super proud of herself and asked me to take her picture! If you know Gibby this is not standard for her. She is not a girlie girl.

My sister and I took our girls to see Santa last week. My girls had way too much energy and Miss H just wanted down so I waited in line while they ran around like heathens! While I waited this was my view.

I always make something yummy for all of the girls teachers and I mean ALL! Their primary, specials,tutors, principles, counselor, nurse, secretary etc... This year it was microwave fudge. No time for the real thing this year. :/

So if you read Jessica's post yesterday you'll know that she mentioned Charming Charlie! Like Jessica, it's my new favorite store! If you haven't been it's like accessory heaven. Anyway, I fell in love with this necklace. It has an Alice in Wonderland theme. If you have read my blog in the past you know that I'm a huge fan. I didn't buy it since it's that time of year. :( Maybe someone will buy it for me for Christmas! ;)

The girls had their class parties on Friday! My mom came to help me with kindergarten and Aaron was even able to stop and see each of the girls!

Brinley's girl scout troop went caroling on Friday night! It was freezing so I made her wear under armor under her clothes, tall socks, gloves, hand warmers, scarf, hat and her puffy jacket. I'm pretty sure that she was still cold!

Saturday was our Christmas get together with Aaron's family. Of course the kids couldn't wait to open presents! We had such a great time. The kids made a ginger bread house. I especially loved the "sky light"! Gibby was so tired by the end that she laid down with Daisy and fell asleep.

So that's my week in phone pics! You want to show us yours link up here!
