My Tommy at 30

My oldest son Tommy turned 30 this last Saturday!
His sweet wife put on a fun celebration at their house with a few friends and close family.
Lots of fun! 
 I had fun doing this picture arrangement for him.  Isn't he handsome?
 Cheers Uncle Tommy!
 Adult Pinata ;) Pre-smashed!

That would be me ;) 

 Little brother & Big brother
 By his birthday banner I made for him 

Dad & Nate whipping "somebody" in ping pong 
 Whoa whoa whoa! Look out! He means business!
Remember way back when...I said "we're not a competitive family in any way shape or form" 
The Loot!

Mike's "winnings"

Nothing goes to waste with Kyle.
She knew exactly what to do with a shark head!

Now for the sentimental stuff....
Tommy was due on my birthday, May 30th but he came 4 days sooner.
He had his first outing to Grandma & Grandpa's to celebrate Mommy's b~day at 4 days old:) Big Sister Heather is so proud!

 Tommy, you have been a special gift to me. I'm truly blessed to have you for a son and a friend!
Happy 30th!!

Farmin' In The City

Just 2 miles from my home is this beautiful farm in the middle of the city!
Jill raises chickens, grows peaches among many other beautiful fruits and vegetables.
I stopped by to buy some eggs and peaches and what do you know?
My grandbabies showed up! They live around the corner from her and have made friends with her too!
What a treat for me ;)

 Clayton is holding a baby "Chip".
Scouty has named the chicks that. I can't get over that cute-ness!

 Kyle was a little timid about holding them 

She couldn't resist!


Thank you for opening your farm to us 
"City Slickers" Jill.

You are a gracious hostess!

Next stop....
BoHo Farm
Another city farm,
I can't wait!!

Thanks for visiting!

Happy Birthday Mike!

Yesterday was my son-in-law's birthday. We have been thankful for him from the beginning. He is such a loving husband, father and son. 
God has truly blessed us to give him to our family and a husband to our sweet daughter.
Happy birthday Mike! We love you!

Thanks for visiting :)

Mother's Day 2012

Today was a beautiful, relaxing Mother's Day filled with beautiful moments that I want to "still frame" in my head. 
We did it very low key, homemade breakfast, lazy time on the couch, nap.
Then we had pizza and ice cream at Heather & Mike's.
The Kid's played on the slip n' slide while we sat and visited.

So nice....
I am so very blessed.

I also want to remember my sweet mama today.
She will forever be in my heart. 
I miss you Mom...
Thanks for visiting!

Happy 100th Birthday Arizona, A Tribute to One of Her Authors

Arizona has produced some pretty amazing authors but I've never met any of them personally till last Friday
Thomasina J. Burke wrote a touching book, Magic Bridge.  It starts out in Crown King, Arizona but you head out to visit places all over the world!
I had the privilege of meeting her at my granddaughter's piano recital last Friday!
If you have a chance, pick up this book. It's delightful!

Let me know what you think!
Thanks for visiting ;)
