Twas the night before Mother's Day

We were going to have a bonfire by my husband's dad's old barn--we now own the land and the barn.  But the wind whipped up and a storm was brewing.  Meanwhile the oldest grandchild was playing a chilly game of baseball in a near-by town.  So plans changed.  They went home to their warm house and we hopped in the car and went for a visit.
Lots of antics.  Lots of fun: laughing, picture taking, giggling, goofing off, picture taking, "Flip"recording, laughing---get the picture?!
However, I had asked my husband to please take a picture of me with each of the grandchildren.  He usually mans the video camera--his large one--and I snap the pictures.  Consequently I am rarely in any.  Not that I want to be in a lot, but I do want some record of me in all of this living.  So he agreed.
We have loads of funny pictures, but here are the posed ones.

                                                The Irish lass and me, Grandma B.

                                 The Little mother and Grandma B.

                                         The Big brother and Grandma B.
Little brother was feeling a bit cranky at first, but he did decide to be a part of the group pic.

    The Little brother, Smooch, Irish lass, Grandma B., Little mother, and Big brother.

M.--the mother who helped provide me with these wonderful grandkids.

                                    My son--the other half who contributed.

And last but not least, the man who took all the pictures of me---my loving husband with the 7 year-old who's always asking, "When is Papa M. going to move up here?"

 And a Happy Mother's Day to all!

  5. Hello to you all! I'm delighted to have become a member of this forum and am looking forward to contributing.

    My interests are wide and varied but I reckon my real passion is for music. I love a wide variety such as
    Faithless, The Smiths, Enigma, The Cure & The Mission.

    I'm always looking for new places to download new music and the best place I have come across is
    [url=]Iomoio[/url]. Their music is only 15 cents a track so you can save a real fortune. And it's legal!

    Anyway, looking to make more posts soon.....
