Thursday Thoughts

Thursday, January 28, 2010

I always read Tanya's blog, even across those big ponds so many things are the same.  The other day was that our kids NEVER send enough pictures!  When we were visiting Laura Beth, Nick, and Mason over New Year's---I asked Laura Beth to schedule some family photos.  





First is all of us.  I know, Ken and I look a bit stiff, but its hard to take a picture when Laura Beth is trying to hold a wiggling Mason and still look natural! 

Next is a picture of Mason and I, Ken said I look like I'm terrrorizing Mason.



And of course we have to have one of Mason by himself!

 

 

We miss them all.  Mason is now "listening" to us on the phone, is past the stage of eating the phone and pushing all the buttons.  

Tonight we ate at Ruby Tuesday's, and bought some groceries.  I pressed a whole PILE of blocks I had sewn, so I'm keeping busy.

I'm so glad the pictures turned out OK. I remember what an adventure it was for you.

Family photos are a treasure. I love the one of you and Mason.

Make sure to identify everyone on the back of the photo for future generations.

And there you all are. Nice looking family. And if you're terrorizing little Mason in the one picture, he just doesn't look very scared....you'll have to work on your technique. LOL My daughter arranged for a family photo once...I don't even know where the pictures are now....I may have burned them. In my opinion the photographer needed to pull back a little ways....maybe I wouldn't have looked so big...or at the very least, needed to put the kids in front of me. hehehe

What fantastic pictures! Love the devilish gleam in his eyes in that last photo!

So you dug through the snow enough to get to Ruby Tuesday's, huh? Guess that means the marathon baking session is over.
