Julia's Birthday




Yesterday, March 16, was Julia's  third birthday. There will be more pictures to see soon, but for today, I have a layout of pictures of her birthday breakfast at Silver Grill Cafe, her families favorite breakfast place. I have to say it is mine as well.

She was wearing one of her birthday presents. It was just what she wanted, I'm sure. She really likes unicorns!

When the crew brought her one of their super cinnamon rolls with a candle and sang Happy Birthday,  
she was quite surprised  and pleased as well.

Proud Poppa


I just finished this page.  I feel good to be caught up to date with  my layouts. There are more pictures that go along with these. They may show up tomorrow on this site...depending how the day goes.

So proud to be the mother of John,  the grandmother of Caleb and Julia (on her Daddy's lap), and the mother-on-law of Beth. Proud to be Oliver's grandmother as well. (He just wasn't in these pictures.)

Bible Art


I need to stop posting so late at night. I'm always in a hurry and  I can't think of anything to say.

This page says it  all. This is our daughter, Chelle, with her art work. She paints in a Bible. The verse on this one is I Chronicles 29:17  “I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity.”

Beautiful. Thank you, Chelle.

Rei Ayanami Cosplay


For some reason I was not able to post images  last night.  My computer expert husband is awake this morning and agreed to help with that problem. So, he just came to the computer with me and as usual, with his standing here beside me the computer magically worked  right. Everything did and here is the picture  I wanted to post yesterday.


You'll probably think  I've decided to publish only pictures of  our granddaughter Ashley, since she has been the subject of all the posts for a few days. That is not the case.  Just catching up with some pictures  I  found  for Ashley's anime activities this last year. She does make a good subject however.

Finishing the Photo Shoot




I love all the pictures, of which  I've just published a few.  But of the very many, this last picture is my favorite.  I love Ashley's  big smile.

Taiga Cosplay





I am copying the text on the first page above.  It explains about the photo shoot:

Ashley dressed as the anime character Taiga, which means River in Japanese. Her friend 
Jay chose to do her own version of Ami Kawashima, also from ToroDora . 
They made the Opryland grounds their cosplay destination. 

No one else dressed up, so people assumed Ashley was dressed as an angel for the holiday. 
Four people asked to get their picture with the ‘angel’ and one said, let me get a picture 
with Santa too!  Several people took pictures without asking.  It was a fun shoot! 

Ashley's mother was the photographer. It was pretty cool that evening, the high for the day had been 60 and as you can see, these pictures were taken outdoors in the evening . But then,  I would guess that angels would not get cold.
