The Story

The five of us kids – Mike, Trish, Kelly, Lisa, Laurie – have so many wonderful memories of our parents. With 5 of us kids, we would argue over everything from who had to wash instead of dry the dishes to who got to sit in the backseat and not in the back-back seat of the station wagon. Mom would always have us pick a number. The first one to pick would usually win because her favorite number was 7 and she almost always picked that.

When we first moved into our house on Clayhill we slept in the family room in front of the fireplace, all 7 of us, I think because we didn't have heat in the house yet. Growing up we kids would come home from school and my mom would leave us a chore list on our fridge. She would always tell me she wanted me to clean our bathroom because "I did such a good job" That actually worked, her telling me that. Mom and Dad were always there to help us find our way.
We didn't have a lot of extra money when we were growing up, but I never knew it. We always seemed to have what we needed and wanted.

Thanks so much for making this such a special gift for them. It was such a BIG hit as a present to my wife's mom and dad.
