Welcome to the Dwight and Velna Blood Family Blog

The purpose of the Dwight and Velna Blood family blog is to provide a gathering place to collect family history, photos, family news, memorabilia, and whatever else we can think of.  Let's all see where we can take it.

Help Me Resurrect Our Family Blog

As you can see, nothing has been posted on this blog since Feb 2011.  I hope we can get it going again. I know the younger generation is enamored with facebook and posts everything there.  However, I'd like to ask you to stick a photo or two or some comments or a family story or a travelogue or a scripture or a wise saying on here once in awhile so we can revitalize this blog.  There are many advantages to a family blog.  One is that the photos don't vanish quickly and we have a permanent record.  The other is that a lot of people won't read facebook over the age of 15 and having a family gathering place to let each other know how each of us is doing is a useful and important thing to do.  So, please help me out here and use your imagination to see if we can't make this blog a meaningful piece of our family lore and history.  Thank you.

Visitors from the North

Carly and Sadie came to visit us for a long weekend, so that we could get some Sadie-time, and they could enjoy our warm weather....this is what we woke up to their first day here! I know it doesn't look like much, but the layer of ice underneath was enough to close everything at least for the morning...but by the next day it was 70 degrees and gorgeous...that's how we do it in Texas!

Sadie loved the park, and would say "wee" each time the swing went back and forth.

Sadie's favorite thing? Feeding goldfish to Abby...instant friends!!

We celebrated Courtney's 24th birthday while they were here.
It was a great weekend!!
