Where has the time gone ? Sharing....

How the challenges of November and December have caught up with me! I've been delinquent in posting -- and in sewing -- but I have had a blast preparing for the Holidays.

Each year we gather for a Photo Shoot of our grand children in our home.

My sister Michele graciously endures MANY hours of shooting a variety of holiday photos with 8 little munchkins ranging from 2 to 14 years old.

This year was especially fun (and challenging).  Thankfully, we gain hundreds of wonderful photo's each year.  Here are a few of my favorites...

Brother and sister -- Lucas and Angelina - Aren't they special ?

 Cousins -- three months apart, Zachary and Ethan -- Ethan will turn 2 this week !!

Say "hello" to Caleb -- he was tired today - spent alot of time in Grampa's lap and just taking everything in.

 Beautiful Miss Jenna with her cousin Zachary....

Two of my favorites of "the girls"...

Sisters Emily (left) and Jenna (right) with cousin Angelina (center). 

Angelina has 4 brothers so she really enjoys getting dolled up with her cousins!

Last but not least is Emily with her little cousin --the other twin, Benjamin.

We feel very fortunate to have such special grandchildren and to live close to all of them (3 families).

Bless you all this holiday season...  May you enjoy your time with you family and friends.

Leaving you with my "Bird Tree" - a gift from my sister Michele a few years ago -- it stays up 365 days a year to celebrate my love of Song Birds.

Thanks again sister... for another year of wonderful photos!

Merry Christmas,


  1. Your lovely grands look like they could be true angels....the photos are wonderful and, I am sure, captured their individual personalities. Christmas Blessings and hugs.....Doreen
