Fabulous Friday . . .

Well, I have to say that I have had a fabulous week!  This post will have lots of photos so bear with me~it's my journal, I want as many pictures of my family as I can get, that's fair, right?

Last Friday, we decided to have a picnic and cook hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill.  It was so fun!  My kids are all so fun, and, it gave them a chance to get reacquainted with my son's fiance.  They have known her forever, but have not seen her for a very long time~it was so fun!  A few highlights . . . .

Nothing like a warm fire in the pit . . . . .

and magic tricks with sticks . . . .

and a precious new, soon to be grandson!!

and cuddles with a favorite cousin . . . .

and wonderful children . . . .

I have to add these pictures because they are just so darn cute!  They are pictures from Easter~nothing like new Easter clothes!

 Emily looks so pretty in her new dress!!

Caleb is such a cute little man!!

Then, the weather turned on us . . . . 

it went from this . . . . 

to this!!!

Is that a UFO???

Then, last night we went to watch Taylor Jo,  sing in a school program~she was adorable!!

My little Tay-Bug.

Christian and Averi saw the program earlier in the day, so Christian, being the wonderful big brother that he is, stayed home with Averi, but we could not leave them out!

Christian with the pudgy little Bandit!

My sweet Ave, snuggling with "silk" . . . so cute!

Hope the rest of my week is as wonderful . . . .  making memories.

  8. Hi Barb,
    It seems like ages since we talked. I so loved this post, you have such a beautiful family, and you know me I love seeing families making memories like this. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Thank you too for visiting both my blogs, and for taking the time to leave me comments. I am going to try your suggestion of adding an extra bar of soap on making the laundry detergent.
    You are such a blessing to me.

  9. I loved everything on this blog (with the exception of one picture---but that is okay)For some reason tonight I feel like our family is becoming complete. I am so excited to have Diana and Mr. Brody in our family!!
