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!

  1. What a beautiful life you have! I hope one day to have some grand-babies and be able to say the same, but I'm praying for them even now ;) God bless you, friend!

  2. I know how you feel! As much fun as it would be to go through the pregnancy and childbirth again, the long nighttimes and dealing with day to days of toddlerhood would be way too much at our "age"!! It's so great to enjoy our grands and let them go home to their parents! ;)

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.



Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!







MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
