Happy Birthday, Suzi !! You darling little Vixen !!


You were sure a change from boys! Growing up without any brothers, it took me forever to get used to boys. Then, here comes my girl, and I've forgotten how they are.

So many fun times.

HaPpY 25th BiRtHdAy!!!!

Poppy having a great Father's Day

Wearing the shirt Greg's family made for him for Christmas (with all the grandkids represented.)
I read a statistic that:

now only 20% of all households have an intact family. I'm happy that he's set a great example for his sons and daughter.....love and forbearance, and above all "never, never, never give up."

What matters most...time with loved ones.

Got to spend a little time over breakfast with Kaylynn (Cory's family) and kids. So great to see them. I could eat them up!!

sweet, yummy Owen!

The smile she has just before she plays a trick on you!

Seems to be doing well with new cochlear.

love lilacs

This is the little one Greg's family gave me for my birthday 2 years ago. The first Spring after a very mild winter it had 7 blossoms on it.
This year after a bad winter (where it sits taking the full blast of southern exposure), it was half dead with only one beautiful little blossom.
After everyone elses lilacs have bloomed and are past...mine just opened up today.
I guess it was thirsty, we had a torrential downpour all day!
This Fall I'll fashion a windbreak for it and prune it some...hoping for an easier winter on them and more blooms next year.

I know .... out of focus...

Harley girl.

I only got to see 2 games this year...but this represents the last one.
Greg told Harley to hit a home run and run around all the bases. She wasn't sure exactly what that meant so he said hit the ball really really far and then run around all the bases til you touch homeplate.

So Harley got up to bat and hit the ball really far!! Then she preceded to run to first, and then to second where she nudged the other runner out of the way and ran on to third. It wasn't a home run after all but by golly she was going to run those bases. So very darling!!

Super Dad !


Last ball game.

Last day of school.

Let the good times roll !!

The future's so bright -they gotta wear shades !

Somethings should never change, don't you think?
So stinkin' cute!

(borrowed heavily from Suz)

This or that?

It's no secret that I think:

Winter should be short.

Fall should be longer.

Spring should last at least as long as winter.


Which would you rather look at and be in?

The Gasaways

My sister, Karen, my only sibling and their clan taken a few weeks ago.

Don't they look like fun?

It occurs to me that:

my mom and dad had only 2 girls

my dad never had a son

but my dad did get boys in spades in the next generation. My sis had 4 boys , just 1 girl and I had 6 boys, just 1 girl.

So between us there were 12 grandchildren, 10 of which were boys that dad got to really enjoy (mom too). Now my sisters family has grown to 32 people, and mine is so far at 24. Thats 56 decendants from my parents....pretty nice.

Celeb look alikes

Sweet Emily

Emily was visiting Aunt 'Toot' (as we call Suzi) about a week ago, and doing her recent favorite thing...baking. Loves to put on an apron and help out in the kitchen.
Love, love, love her smile !
She's had some special needs issues since birth, being born profoundly deaf, and other issues that have come with that, hand in hand.
She's very very smart and funny and quite a prangster. She's braver than any little girl I know and truly my hero for all the challenges that she just takes in stride.
She's got another issue going on and a team of nuero-surgeons are working with her today.
Anyone who may read this....please say a little prayer for her !!!


(my daughter from a different mother)

We miss you...

Lazy Sunday...

Having a great Sabbath, food and family, and "girlfriend" time doing toenails. Greyson thinks this is something new ...and very odd !

Sons in North Dakota going to church there, and as always a little fishing on the side.

Miss all the kids who couldn't be in my backyard on Sunday as well........
