A Good Laugh

The other day while working on a birthday project I was using a personal cutter to do some close trimming.  The trimmer as a small draw to hold tools or cropped photos while working on them.  I had a few photos that I had been working on NINE years ago.  (Okay, so I am a little behind in scrapbooking.  I rather make cards!)  So I decided to go through the drawer and look at what I stopped working on.  In the bottom of the draw were some ultrasound pictures of Daughter #7 (Child #14).  We ooo-ed and ahhh-ed over them and I put them on the piano to put away.  That was Monday. 

Come Thursday the ultrasound pictures are still on the piano. (You know how it goes, you have things that come up and life happens.)  Daughter-in-love #2 comes over and sees them and wants to know who's pictures they are and I tell her, "Mine."  Her eyes were BIG!!  Then I told her it was D#7.  We had a good laugh!

Little did I know until this morning that Daughter #1 and #3 saw them on the piano when I was gone on Thursday evening.  I guess they thought they were very recent pictures!!!  Oh how I wish I was home to see their faces!

I chuckle as I think about it!  While I love babies, the smell of a newborn, and all that goes into raising a small person, but at age 50 I am very content to love on my grands.  I enjoy spoiling them and being the fun person and not always the one that has to discipline. 

Wife, mother, Mammi, sister, friend...I love my titles!

Another Month of Birthdays

As spring returns in full force this month, so do April birthdays! 

Yesterday, April 2, was Granddaughter A's 6th birthday!  She is learning so much in school and is always eager to color or draw a picture for me!  She is always eager to give hugs  and bounce around the house!  Oh to have the energy of a six year old!   

 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDDAUGHTER A!

Son-in-love,
We trust your day is special!
We are glad you are part of our family!
Have a wonderful day!
Happy Birthday!!
We love you!

Happy Birthday to...

...Daughter #3!  Today is her 19th birthday.  She is our 7th child and my first of seven C-sections!  (Thank you very much, kiddo!) 
 
I know, I always say, "Where has the time gone?"  But times goes so quickly.  Each child is so different and I must say she has the most spunk out of them all!  She is our child that thinks any hour before noon is too early to be up.  But she is the one who is willing to stay at her siblings homes and babysit for several days--giving up sleep if necessary--to help out.   

 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAUGHTER!
YOU ARE OUR "MACKIE-DOODLE-SWEETHEART"
AND WE LOVE YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH!
WE PRAY YOUR DAY IS EVERY BIT AS WONDERFUL AS YOU!
 
XOXO
Love, Momma and Daddy
