Hello everyone!

Yeah yeah I know.  I don’t want any lectures…the honest truth is, I haven’t felt like adding anything to my blog.  Kind of went into a slump of ideas.  Nothing new, just nothing basically.  I took some adorable pics of who else????? grandkids when I went up North a few weeks ago.  It was still warm outside.  Owen and Lauren were total models for me.  Lauren was hilarious…..and holy cow, I got some cute shots…..

It was hard to get anything out of Ryan.  He lets me take a picture or 2 then….when he is thinks its enough…well then it is enough.  It makes every picture  I get of Ryan that much more precious.

So bare with me….or don’t…but here we go!!!!!!!!!!!

Is this the cutest pics of the little rascals helping their mom bake cookies?  They ate globs of cookie dough…it was so good!  When ever they help Camille bake…they put their hats on.  It is great!

I was able to capture this adorable pic before he became bored with all my “snaps”






Owen on the other hand was totally into the posing for me!

Then there came Lauren….what more can I say?

I took a ton of pics.  Normally 1 out of 10 turn out the way I like them and then I don’t have a problem putting them in frames… but not this time.  I need a bigger wall…….lol

I took some pics of the 3 that live here in town but…it was such a hot day….and I need some do-overs….aren’t you glad!

After a LOT of posing………she was done and off she skipped to go  chase some chickens!

YESTERDAY was my DIL’s BD  Sorry this is so late putting up Camille.  Thanks so much for being our sweet daughter.  Thank you for giving us such beautiful grandies….We sure love you!

Camille told me that she got a bicycle for her birthday.  Of course the night before her birthday Mike was talking…the kids were right there and he was saying, “geesh it sure is too bad that we didn’t get you anything for your birthday” and RYAN piped up and said “yeah we did dad, we got mom a bicycle”!  Ya gotta love it.  Never…Never…Never think you can pull one over on Ryan!

Then night before last Lauren asked her mom, (sorry I don’t remember the exact words) “mommy can you ask daddy to come and lay down with me” (this is at bedtime, Mike sometimes lays down with the kids) and then she said: “and if he says no, just ask him again, and if he says no again, just ask him again”.  I can just see her saying it as a matter of fact and shrugging her shoulders…. lol…OK would YOU SAY NO TO THAT?  just sayin……

Hope you are all having a wonderful week….I know I am…..

Your grandchildren are beautiful Linda. And I think Owen may be a model someday, he's a poser! It sounds and looks like you had a great time and I do know how hard it can be to get good shots of the kids. My grandchildren are nearly impossible to get!
Love Di ♥

Well, I guess I can't lecture because these pics of the Grands are so darn CUTE! Ryan is quite the little baker. I LOVE the pic of Owen winking. AND - all the ones of Lauren are spectacular. Those eyes, that smile, the hair - OMG! She looks like a child model (or a model child). Glad you posted!

Grands.... gotta love 'em (for always!) They are so cute, Linda. Your photographs are wonderful, and I agree with you....You're gonna have to get more wall space to hang all the photos....beautiful Grands.
Love to you,

Oh my gosh, Linda! This totally made me smile!
AND, where in the world did they get the little chef hats!!! Darling!
Not all of the pics downloaded, but the narrative was great!

Beautiful photos! Beautiful children! And I laughed out loud at Owen winking! So adorable!

Jayden loves cracking the eggs too, anytime I'm baking he's right there to help me. I'll have to find him a baker's cap too!

Looks like you've been happily busy!

I haven't been blogging for months either, 'just now getting back into it a little with Jayden in school full-time, but before I know it I'll have another little one to tend, so I'm enjoying my 'free' time while I can.
Take care.
Love, Eileen

Real cute, you really have captured their feelings perfect my friend.

Pat said...

Such beautiful, precious grandies. If only they didn't grow up so fast!
You have captured such wonderful expressions of each of them. I often wish I had pictures of my Mother when she was a child, but none were taken. So, take lots of pictures for future generations to cherish!

Oh, so sweet! ;^D What a bunch of dolls. I know you are proud! Glad you're getting to soak up all those hugs and kisses. ;^) I've missed checking in frequently and was so glad to see you're having a good time.

Your grandkids are very photogenic, Linda. They look like very happy little chefs to me!

Good Lord the eyes on Lauren...let me get my camera on her!

Great pics girl! You keep crossing my mind. I have been weaving and I want to get a rug to you if I ever get them done.

Beautiful grandchildren.
Has anyone ever told you that Lauren looks like you??? She does to me! She's beautiful.
