Oliver enjoys his acting classes. This is the cast of the last play they did, The Ugly Duckling, in which he played Tom the Turkey.

I can't get over how very beautiful the flowers are here this year. It should go down in history as The Year of Flowers. I don't remember this shrub being near this big and there are usually so few flowers that you wouldn't even notice it. But this year it is so prretty, I had to do a layout.

I did this too quickly. Not sure I'm pleased with it. There might possibly be changes made before I publish it. It is a fun picture.

I need to talk to our grandson about this trip. He mentioned Phoenix, but I'd like to pinpoint his location. Wow, it is beautiful!

This is one of the several great pictures Hope had taken on Easter of her and her kids, April's grandchildren.

This is a wonderful year for flowers. This is how it started in our yard, which is suffering from old residents, who can't seem to get everything done well, if at all.

However you feel about them, a field of dandelions is beautiful in bloom. They make a wonderful background for this picture of Ava.

Even though I didn't get to see any of my kids in person, they made sure I had a wonderful Mother's Day.

Sunday, May 14, 2023

It's been a great Mother's Day with a great dinner and gifts, but we didn't get any pictures. Not one! Of course with a large family, we do have pictures that were taken another time. The one I'm posting today is of our great granddaughter Kendal at Easter. I finally got it put into a layout.

I did this layout on International Scrapbook Day. Since it was a very special day of scrapbooking, I didn't cook...

Thursday, May 11, 2023

Kendal is our second great granddaughter. She is really a cutie. Miss personality already.

Wednesday, May 10, 2023

These pictures were taken April 2. I just finished this layout today. Some day I may catch see I'm a positive thinker, a slow one.

Most of Saturday here was spent with me on the computer doing layouts for International Scrapbook Day. This is one of them. Ron was fine with me at the computer. He had work to do. He did understand my devotion to scrapbooking and humored me by smiling as I took his picture.

Sunday, May 7, 2023

I can't believe I missed two days. Yesterday was International Scrapbook Day and I sat at the computer most of the day making layouts. How I forgot to post yesterday is a mystery to me. Oh well. This is the first layout I did yesterday to celebrate.

Caleb, Oliver and Julia 'explore' Jewel Cave in South Dakota.

Hope and Reagan love to baby sit Kendal. She is just too cute. Actually both the girls are way too cute.

Saturday, April 29, 2023

I think you made a wise choice Hope. I love these flowers. I enjoyed making the layout.

Friday, April 28, 2023

Time is getting away from me. Here it is the 28th and my last post was on the 25th. I missed a couple of days without realizing it. I do have an excuse. Phyllis has been in town from Arizona. We are ORU members and we have been having a great time. Here is one of the pictures taken this week.

WOW 98 Percentile... Lauren earned it. She has worked exceedingly hard consistently.

John and family enjoyed the Badlands National Park last month. They visited several National Parks on their trip.

April's grandson Sam is on the Avon Grove Middle School ice hockey team. They are the champions this year. Congratulations Sam!

Last month when the kids went to the reptile museum Julia jumped up on a turtle. He wasn't a real turtle, but he was a good replica and it made a great picture.

Thursday, April 20, 2023

Our daughter's granddaughter Reagan's picture is just too cute.

Wednesday, April 19, 2023

This is our granddaughter, Lauren and her husband Pat. You know they are big execise enthusiasts. Cross Fit is their 'game'. Baby Kendal was born September 6 and her mom is already back in shape just 5 months later.

Tuesday, April 18, 2023

I'm jumping back to the middle of March, when John and family visited the Devil's Tower. Don't ask me why, but I just had to add some alliteration for fun.

I'm posting this today to lift my spirits a bit. You see the sunshine there in Florida? Well it is cold and has been heavily cloudy all day here in Ohio. We are even expecting snow tonight! I already esperienced sleet as I left my garage this morning. I'm really ready for spring to come back! In the meantime, here is a layout I had not yet published from February.

Sunday, April 16, 2023

Looks like Kendal is quite hungry. She surely is anxious to get at that food! Yes, Daddy Patrick, she is eager to eat solid food!

Saturday, April 15, 2023

It is so hard to live so far away from our grandchildren. But it is a blessing to have good pictures. This is our grandson Caleb at his trombone recital.

Saturday, April 8, 2023

Close cousins grow up and have lives of their own. Sad they don't get many chances now to see each other, but this week they did. They had a great time.

Friday, April 7, 2023

Back in February both Brandon and Brittanie were at their dad's place in Florida. Perfect time for some water fun!

Thursday, April 6, 2023

I just had to make another layout of Julia's birthday. Here she is with her brother Oliver.

Tuesday, April 4, 2023

I believe Oliver has found his niche early. He really likes acting. I doubt niche is the right word, but it does fit him well at the present time.

Monday, April 3, 2023

It was a nice surprise to get these pictures of Ava and Brittanie.

Don't know why I didn't do this layout earlier, but here is the cutest giggler.

Friday, March 31, 2023

This is one I should have blogged earlier, but I just made it today.

Thursday, March 30, 2023

I still haven't seen this cute little great granddaughter in person. I'm so glad for the pictures.
