Me...on an average day...

Come said the wind to the leaves one day, Come o'er the meadows and we will play. Put on your dresses scarlet and gold, For summer is gone and the days grow cold. -

-- A Children's Song of the 1880's

"Some think it's holding on
that makes one strong; sometimes it's letting go."

~ Sylvia Robinson
Great is the road I climb, but the garland offered by an easier effort is not worth the gathering.

-- Sextus Propertius (50BC-16AD) Roman Poet

A mother should give her children a superabundance of enthusiasm,that after they have lost all they are sure to lose in mixing with the world, enough may still remain to prompt and support them through great actions.

-- Julius C. Hare (1795-1855) English Cleric

Every problem has in it
the seeds of its own solution.If you don't have any problems,
you don't get any seeds.

We've all eaten a lot of cake this week in our family...time to give our "sweet tooths" a rest! (That shows how bad it's been around here...ME? RESTING MY SWEET TOOTH???)

Grant's 1st Birthday!

We celebrated another birthday today...and we had a hard time getting little Grant to open his presents. He turned his back on all the brightly wrapped gifts in exchange for some giggle time with Sean. Very sweet....he's a kid...and has his priorities in the right place. Who needs presents when one has a friend!!!?

Unexplained "goings on" in my backyard when "they" think I'm not watching...

I love that babies are so easily amused....

And, I just so happen to love this little guy more each day! It's wonderful being Grammie Kimmie. Posted by Picasa

Happy Birthday To You......

We had a fun birthday party last Sunday for 2 of my favorite men...and, as you can see, we had quite a bit of great cake to celebrate with that night. Ryan and my father have been fishing buddies since Ryan was just a little 6 or 7 year old. It has been a wonderful thing watching their relationship grow through the years. Happy Birthday Ryan and Dad!!! Posted by Picasa
