For those who game, yes, these are personalize meeples.  My Brother Kirk, who is a fab artist made these for my hubby for Christmas.  He made a bunch of of them for gaming ( zombies, robots etc) but he made a special set of 3 featuring my family.  Top Left is my hubby Jerry.  It's hard to see in this pic but he's wearing a Hawaiian shirt surrounded by books.  I love that Kirk gave him Dimples just like he has in real life. 

Top Right is me, skinny ( I lovvvve my bro!) playing with gears.  ( I wonder what gave him that idea?? hehehe )

Bottom is our baby girl, who is now 21 ( arrrgh) surrounded by the cats of the household. 

That's my own, personal family.

I'm so blessed though, because I have 3 brothers, 1 sister, 3 nieces and 1 nephew, my mom, My mom's 5 sisters and brother and all their kids.... I have 1st, 2nd & 3rd cousins knee deep at this point On mom's side.  I have cousins on my Dad's side... and if you skip over to Jerry's family a whole passel of relatives including a couple of sis in laws,  a Dad in law, more nieces  and cousins and  aunts and uncles and even a Grandma in the mix.

Family is so important. 

I might get a chance later this evening to play with beady stuff, but my focus today is visiting with family and making sure they know they are loved and important to me.  It's important to tell them I love you everyday you can, but showing it is worth a million words.  So every week I try to bring my mom a few more paperbacks because she loves to read.  Each book I bring is me saying "I love you" .

My sister is recovering from surgery, and needs more pillows to get comfy.  So I'm dragging over every extra pillow I can find.   I'm going to remember to pop one of my sis in laws and tell her a joke or something.  I'll make sure I give each pet today a nice rub down.  I'll be sure to kiss my hubby when I pick him up from work today.  I'm gonna give my kid random hugs whenever she gets close enough to grab. 

So call your mom, hug your kid,  Send a random card to your Uncle.  And everyone have a great weekend!!
