LOTS of Photos

Ha cha cha!  I fixed the problem.  I simply had to sign into my gmail account from my phone again.  Weird.  Anywho, it's because of updating the system every so often.  All's well.  

Look at the cute eraser my sister sent!  It is wonderful!  Works so well!  Meow!

And our Brad has been practicing his penmanship/script. I love it.  It's so gorgeous.
 Kelli's horses giving me a nice view.
 Tim loves Noah.  Noah is so cozy and restful when we cuddle on Saturday mornings.  I started out on the patio and rocked him in the fresh air.  It reminded me of older friends who gave me advice when our babies were young.  They said, "Your baby must nap outdoors whenever possible."  Aw.  
 Bawn Bawn is an interesting little rabbit.  One day we neglected to push our chairs in when we finished our schooling and the next day Miss BB had nibbled around the edges of all the workbooks. Naughty little chewer.  
 When I arrived at Kelli's two Fridays ago, we had a lovely May snow!
 Rascal #1.  This is Moose.  He is a moose.  It really was like having three ponies in the house.  
 James went across the street for a birthday party and they had a petting zoo.  He chose to be a fireman (dress up affair).  

 We went to the drug store to buy stylists for iPads and we bought red noses, too.  I forget what they raise funds for.  
 And we borrowed Scooby Do movies from the library.  We ate a nice lunch together at a sit down restaurant.  

Within five minutes of being at Kelli's the dogs stepped on my heel and broke my other pair of sandals.  So, I had to go home and get another pair.  My pedicure (thank you, Kelli) matched the other pair.  First world problems. 
 We've been grilling vegetables.  I've been going a bit heavy on the olive oil.  YUM.
 I am still not used to our fence but I love it!  I forget that it's private now.  

 Senator Bob Dole came to visit.  He's a nice person. 
 Brad and April took the family to watch the Colorado Rockies last night.  SUCH a group of lovey dove-y faces! 
 Here's my face looking at YOU!  These are my last year's eyeglasses and they are heavy and just wrong somehow.  I don't like the way they look.

Here is one of my most favorite faces.  Aw, Timothy!  He is so sweet and almost one year old. 
 And Noah . . . LOVE.

 Such a sweet note from Birdie.  
 Owl pose
 Lighter version
 Cherries!  Aren't they beautiful?  We like spitting the pits in the grass. 
 The pansies are taking over our house.  Oh well.  We like the shade. 

Summer is coming and the neighborhood is looking so fine.  Well, hello Robbie!  You are my favorite bird. 
 And here is a poppy for you because you are a poppy kind of person.  Thank you for being so kind about my photo/technology rant.  I can't rest until things are fixed so when I can't fix them quickly, I get crabby.  Silly.

I'm off to book club.  I just have to walk around the corner to my friend Jeanie's house.  Yay!  Thank you very much for saying hello!

I always enjoy your posts! The notes from your Grands are much deserved!
Timothy is looking very wise and regal nowadays!
I like the fireman suit that James is donning!
I ALWAYS use too much olive oil! It is very tasty!
Brad's calligraphy is beautiful!!!

What lovely things you have in your garden. Isn't this a beautiful time of year.

Beautiful pics of Beautiful People. I've always had a hankering for rimless specs but my eyesight is too bad for them, even if I got the really slimmed down lenses, apparently they would still look like beer bottle bottoms!! I like your glasses but it's always good to have a change if you feel you've outgrown the old ones. xxx

Julia said...

I'll echo everything that Kezzie said and I'll add, that your flowres are beautiful. I hope that you'll post photos of your peonies when they are in full bloom. I can't get enough of their beauty...
I love the bear outfit on Noah. Such a sweetie pie.
Smiles & hugs, Julia

Julia said...

I also love those Groucho Marx glasses on that little person. Just so cute., lol

Gumbo Lily said...

So glad you're back with a photo vengeance!! Your big grandgirls are really growing up. Gosh. and so are your littler grandchildren. That's what they do best, isn't it?

Love the love notes!
And the grilled veggies. YUM!

I think you look nice in your glasses. Are you getting new ones soon?
God bless you, Pommy Friend!

Cheryl mylittlepieceofengland said...

I love good penmanship and that was beautiful, as was the sentiment. Lovely photos of a lovely family xx

Farm Girl said...

I just love your posts so I am especially happy you got your problem all fixed. Such a pretty place you live in and your yard looks really private now with that big fence.
The kids all look like they are growing like weeds, Timothy is all grown up too.
I heard that saying about babies and fresh air too. Its a good reminder I think.
You have a such a nice colorful life. I like your glasses too.

Lisa Richards said...

Yeah, that gmail thing will getcha every time!
I feel your pain with the eyeglass frames. I just went and picked out a cheap frame at Walmart. I always end up with the exact same ones...because they work for me! Wire-rimmed granny glasses. They're big enough to have room for bifocals and skinny enough that I don't notice them in my peripheral vision. Picky picky!
I always enjoy the plethora of pictures and I sure am glad you have all of that nice privacy in your back yard now! :)

your glasses look very good on you and are quite stylist on you.

the kiddo are so cute and they look like they love you very much. Noah is so cute and I love to cuddle babies...

Kitty is so pretty and is marked so good.

Your flowers are so lovely and i really like your new fence.

Take care of your feet ..... have a great rest of the week.


Deb said...

It's always fun to catch up with you, Pom. You have such a sweet family. And that Timothy; what a handsome feller.

Julie said...

Beautiful photos Pom Pom, glad you got your techno hiccup fixed. Timothy almost 1 year ... gosh where did that time go??!! He is beautiful. Your poppy photo is wonderful, one of my favourite flowers. xxx

Granny Marigold said...

Oh, I love today's photos!! All the flowers, and the grands, and Timothy, of course! Your Peonies are just waiting to burst into glorious bloom, as are mine.

Come Away With Me said...

You are right - that was a lot of photos. Each one a delight, too.

Tina said...

What a great post! Love your sense of humour, PP. You are a good egg, as we say over here! :) Xxx

Kim said... can never have too many Pansies. LOVE those Irises. Sweet, sweet photos of your lovely life. Enjoy your Book Club.

magsmcc said...

Thank you for these beautiful pictures. It's been a fractious morning in school, with exams next week and rain pouring down outside, so spirits are just in strange places today perhaps. I know mine certainly is! But better for having spent a quiet moment here x

Jeanie said...

Your family is lovely and Timothy is so handsome! It looks like you're having a pretty grand time and I love to see that. (Delicious and tasty, too!). And good for Brad with his writing. It's lovely!

Melanie said...

Loved the photos! What a lovely time you are having. My daughter in Colorado had a May snow - deeper than what I see in your photos. That's a bit too long of a winter season for me but she doesn't mind. Oh my, but you have my hairstyle! I'm wanting to grow it out but wasn't sure what to strive for and there you are! I shamelessly saved that image to refer to. Is that okay? I can blur out your face if you would rather. Otherwise, I'll just delete it. Have a lovely day!

Marcie said...

Things are so beautiful there! I love your friendly face, whichever glasses you are wearing, dear friend! Even WITHOUT glasses at all! lol

ellen b. said...

That little Noah is so cute. You have filled your days as usual with your loved ones. That note is so sweet. Your fence does the trick! Have a great weekend.

happyone said...

Your posts are always happy with lots of fun things. : )
Always a pleasure to stop by and see what you've been up to.
Thanks for your kind birthday wishes.

GretchenJoanna said...

Spring is busting out all over!!

I love YOUR face. The glasses can't take anything away from it.

Henny Penny said...

I enjoyed all the pictures. You have such a nice family...and the cutest grandchildren!Those grilled vegetables look delicious.

Annesphamily said...

I love seeing your precious phamily and all the photo shares. I want a fence like you have! We have chain link! I do love some privacy! We saw our Colorado Rockies on Mother's Day!The kids treated us, what fun we had! My hubby is more special, his twin, the middle child is taking him to the beach for a Father's Day trip! Hee Hee! She said if I wanted to go and if Nick isn't working, we better find some cash for our airfare! LOL! We are shooting for August. My hubby has relatives in Utah and they invited us to their phamily reunion too. It is his late mother's side of the phamily. I am hopeful we can do it all! Have a wonderful week. HUGS

Cat Lover said...

Hi Pom Pom, what a delightful post. So many happy things. Your gardens look fabulous!
Thanks for sharing it all.

Jill said...

So many wonderful things in this post! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


Wood Fairy said...

That's a nice picture of you ... and Timothy too. Looks like you have worked hard at that babysitting - I can't imagine how huge a dog must be to wreck a shoe by standing on it! Glad you are back home though and can relax and enjoy your garden. Betty

Happy@Home said...

All is looking fun and pretty at your place... even your glasses :).
The note from the grands is a real keeper. So sweet.

Heather LeFebvre said...

Look at all your beautiful flowers!!!!! And all the peony buds!!! your peony season must come after ours. I love the sweet thank you note!!!! May snow?!!! Yikes!!! Michael and I are headed out on our trip this Thursday! Can't wait!!!!

Kit said...

Pom pom, all looks happy and great at your place. We got that snow too! I see you peony's are about to bloom, mine too! I will snap some bowling ball pics soon. :) Kit

M.K. said...

Hi, Pom! I'm so glad your photos are fixed - what amazing flower photos! And I like the look of those veggies, very healthy and yummy. When I see the pic of your grand girls together, all I can think is that before you know it, you'll be taking pictures of the three (or more) of them all as teens, and then in college, and then even older. They grow so fast. So glad you are involved and enjoying every day with them.
