My people

This fall we got our whole clan together to snap some pictures.  You should be able to click on the photos to see them bigger.  I am so very blessed.
Us this fall

Our boys, goofing off

Our younger girls, posing hard 🙂

Grandbaby yumminess– can you tell we were more thrilled than they were?

All our girls with one brother photobombing


We also got pictures of our married daughters with their families, but since they have blogs of their own, I’ll let them share those photos on their own blogs. 🙂

    It doesn’t seem long enough that I’ve been following your blog for the kids to have grown up that much. Great smiles all the way around. You did good!
    P.S. We still enjoy your recipes. Now that I’m retired and doing a lot more of the cooking (my wife is still working) I get a chance to try more things and it has become more important to keep expenses down. Been making a big effort to do most of the meals from scratch, those darn cardboard boxes are expensive apparently!! ;-)) Your suggestions are really helpful.

  5. Wonderful!

  6. I love it!!

  7. oooo, I love love love these!
