Our Fourth ....
We had 30 at the picnic. Plenty of good food and fun. So many old stories from our childhood, new stories of the younger ones. My little brother Steve said I was taking better care of my great grandson Luke, than I did him when he was a baby. I said, "just because when I rocked you to sleep , I used real rocks, you want to complain. " LOL I was the oldest daughter and he was the family baby and I had to carry him around all the time. :):) Thank goodness we all have a good sense of humor..
Hope all of you had a great day, shared with loved ones. XO

How wonderful that you had such a nice picnic and had your family there. Those little boys are just precious and look at the smiles on that baby!ReplyDelete
You have the fair skinned grands like I do...it's a challenge to keep them from burning in the sun.
I hope you have a good week, Susie. xo Diana
ps. I bet you were a GREAT big sister.
Diana, Luke's last check up, the tests showed he was not pancreatic insufficient, so he not longer(for now) has to take the enzyme meds for his digestion. Such good news.He's a chunk, so I think he will been strong enough to fight, when the time comes. I almost want to cry when I see fair skinned kids with little hair and no hat...well the same goes for golfers. LOL. Diana, I admittedly pushed some of the siblings around when I could not handle them all. LOL. I use to put Stevie ona tree limb , make him hang on and I would climb up and sit with him and we would wave at cars. Gaa, how funny. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
This is the cutest picture of Max and Luke. Luke looks like such a happy baby, always smiling. I love the picture of him by the chalkboard at 2 months old. That is a sweet picture of Max and the doggy. It sounds like you had a very nice fourth of July, Susie.ReplyDelete
Happy July days.
Thank you Sheri. I loved how Luke was smiling so big. I just love these babies. That chalkboard idea...Lynzie takes pictures of the boys every month with their age on the board. I enjoyed my fourth so much. Hope you had a fun day. Blessings, xoxo, love, SusieDelete
Sounds like you had a great day. I like the pics. I liked the "rockin' to sleep" with real rocks line. I will use it at the right time. We had a quiet 4th at my sisters except for all the local fireworks. I watched a bit of the Boston Pops and promptly fell asleep. All in all a wonderful day weather wise. About 80 degrees with low humidity.ReplyDelete
Boston Boy , If you only knew how rough we were raised, you would wonder , as I do at times, "how did we not kill one another, as wild as we were at times. " Never when mommy was around though. LOL I had a long day and evening and will glad get to bed early tonight. Glad you had a family fun fourth. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
What precious grandsons and such a cute puppy. Hope you have a wonderful evening. xoReplyDelete
Mildred, I hugged and kissed on these babies and totally enjoy them. :):) That dog was a little sweetie. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
You have such a big happy family. We all want to be part of it. I'm sure I'm a long lost Auntie! heehee! Hugs!ReplyDelete
Absolutely Diane. I feel at times I have way more in common with my blog family than some of my real family. LOL. But I love all my family. As hard as our lives were growing, I know the Lord blessed us...with a strong mother and hard working father. Hope your day was fun and good weather. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
What a sweet, sweet time you must have had with all your Lovies!! And isn't it funny the memories which will surface at such times of getting together.ReplyDelete
I'm the older sister, too, by 12 years, and though she was sort of My Baby when she was little, we have a fabulous time together now. She'll be here end of July, and I'm really looking forward to that Sister Time.
so glad you had such a lovely Fourth!
Rachel, There's 12 years between my baby brother and I and also seven siblings. There were eleven of us all together. I hope you and your sister have the best times. I have four sisters and we used to do much more together than we do now. I miss those fun times. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Your grandchildren are adorable Susie! It looks like you had a wonderful 4th of July!ReplyDelete
Pilar, It was an awesome day with family and friends....and the little ones made it even more special. This is also our family reunion of sorts...not all can make it to the picnic. Hope you had a fun time with your family and friends. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
What precious little faces! They are your pride and joy, I know!ReplyDelete
Karen, I have had those sweet boys on my mind everyday. You are right, they are special. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
The boys are adorable.. i'm sure they bring you many hours of pleasure.ReplyDelete
Missy, Watching little minds at work is fun . The baby is very alert , trying to be vocal...so funny. I love all the sweet little ones. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Great photos of your grands-they are so cute! Love that you all gathered for a picnic on the 4th. Hope you have a great Friday!ReplyDelete
Noreen, Years ago, my daughter Angie wanted to start having family reunion on the 4th...for the most part if works out pretty well...it mostly depends on the weather...like if not all are in the house at the same time. 30 people would be a house full. LOL.Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
The boys are adorable. The photo of Max and Sophie is priceless. How sweet. It sounds like your picnic was loads of fun. I'm glad you could all get together. xoReplyDelete
Nancy,It was a great time, Today I will get to be with my daughter. It will be fun to talk about all the fun we had . Blessings, xoxo, susieDelete
Awwww the boys are soo sweet and cute. Love love love the baby basset. Struck a cord in my heart to see that baby basset. Happy Friday have a wonderful weekend.ReplyDelete
Kris, I knew if you saw the little hound , you would be in love. I was surprised at it's big paws. Kris and Bob have had two others, that have passed. Hope to see you today. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
