On a less serious note. . .

March is our birthday month!  We have birthdays on the 1st, 13th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 22nd, and finally the 30th, now that's a lot of ice cream and cake!!  No wonder I worry about our health!

My mother turned 86 this year - and each year I worry and fret that this might be her last, but we continue to have birthday parties for her!  I consider myself very fortunate indeed!

I hope all her wishes come true!  I love those sweet little faces of my sister's grands in the background... :0)

 Grandma with Emily . . .

 and Caleb . . .
 and Tanner!

 I just had to share these cute pictures of Averi, she was having such a fun time on the swings!  Doesn't she look all grown up in her new glasses?!

My sister's daughter is here from out of town, so on Tuesday, we decided to take all the daughters who could join us,  and go out to lunch!  We went to a fun restaurant that caters to children, with lots of fun things for them to play on.  It was so fun to see all of those cute kids!

The two little ones in the top left corner on the top collage, are the babies who were born on the same day, in the same hospital, just 40 minutes apart, their moms are in the collage as well, my daughter on the top rights, my sweet niece on the bottom left!  I love all these cute kids, and big kids too, we had a great time!! 

We brought grandma too, I think she had fun, but it wasn't long before she was ready to go home for a nap, and so was I!

“Nobody will understand the craziness of your family better than your cousins”

Happy Friday all!

  5. Oh, treasure that sweet mom of yours. I loved the pictures of the birthday celebration. I love ti when cousins can get together. Those were some awesome family pictures.
    Averi does look adorable in her glasses. She said last night that she had her hair cut; it looks so cute. Love those kids of ours. I hope they have fun on their trip and I hear they left their dogs with you to cuddle and take care off. Have a great Sabbath day and blessings love and hugs to you!
