A labor of love, this little girl loves to work doing something. When not helping to create a party for little kids to enjoy she is always looking for something to do. She loves to give Grandma a pedicure and we played it up today with make up and a hairdo and even wardrobe selection down to the accessories. She did such a good job that Grandma could even be seen in public as we took a trip to the mall for a first day of school outfit. A very talented and creative little sweetie. Kisses from Grandma.
We have many, but this little guy is definitely one of them. He is sweet and loving and basically an all around good kid. Just three so he still knows how to make plenty of mischief, but lovable and adorable still.
What an adorable face. This guy is a cornball. I have much better photos of him actually being serious and knitting, but this one makes me smile.
I think this is the last photo taken before they flew away. It is funny that they never moved when we would look in or take photos they seemed not to mind at all but then one day we looked in and they flew out and away. A little sad, empty nest syndrome, and yet happy that they made it.
Heading down to take a look at a Jeep in Cathedral City, CA. I snapped this shot out the window at 80 mpg. near Cabazon, CA. At least I wasn't driving the car. Might have been better to stop and take my time, but then why start now?
Two little monkeys perched like cats on the back of the sofa in the window. Nice and warm on a bright sunshiny day. Photo by Art (Get this guy a camera!)
This is as close as we got to a group photo. (Taken by Art) I really wish we would have thought to take one group shot. Oh Well. Live and learn. Shouldn't I have learned by now???
Here's my guy busy at work on the computer. He is probably just goofing but he makes a nice picture. He's got so much more going for him than just his good looks though. He is loving, thoughtful, kind, considerate, fun and funny, and never complains about my cooking. WHAT A GUY!!
I have always wanted to learn to knit and have had my Auntie try to teach me several times. I would always get discouraged and give up. Well Art says to me the other day that he wants to take a knitting class, so off to the Temecula Library we went on a Sunday afternoon, took a class with about 25 people, all of which were women except Art. We are both now knitting away. One down!
Alive and well, every time we get near they start with their little mouths open waiting for us to throw in some juicy bugs. You will have to wait for mom!!
These little guys showed up precariously perched in a crooked nest on the outside of a bush by our front door. It seems as if the gardeners, doing a good job, had trimmed them right out of a home. Two of the four eggs had fallen out but there were two babies left and in spite of our interfering or maybe because of it, they lived to fly away a few weeks later. Even though we tampered extensively with the nest trying to "help", the mommy continued to come and feed and take care of them. The little house finches flew away and we hope they are happily finding yummy seeds at our backyard feeders.
What a delightful day. I got the privilege of helping my daughter with a photo shoot for a very special family and friends. It was the blending of two wonderful families and it was hard to tell where one began and the other ended, such a special group of loving and caring, beautiful people. This is a photo of the newest member.
