September FUN!

 Hello!  Oh my!  I've been away so long! Look at my cute mama saying hello to Atticus on the day we went to Ft. Collins for lunch.
 All the grands got to see GGJo! James and Noah (and their sweetie pie parents) came for dinner one night, too.  I guess I didn't have my phone nearby. It made my heart happy that my mom and sisters got to see our whole brood!

 We went to tea! My sister treated us.

 My sister's daughter (my niece) and her family came one night!  I guess a few people were still in the kitchen for this picture.  I was so busy enjoying the guests, I dropped the ball with the whole photo thing.
 After they left (sad) I enjoyed Kelli's three girls for a few nights. 
 This one survived. 

 We had another tea party at home.

When you take all the photos, you aren't in any of the photos, so HELLO TO YOU!

Now Bill is home from New Zealand and Australia!  Yay!  We are getting a new roof tomorrow so he's excited about that!
I have been teaching 4th/5th graders at Community Bible Study and I love it.  The leadership ladies are a delight, all so good and true.  Teaching just ten kids is WONDERFUL!  I think they gave me all of the sweetie pies because every Wednesday is FUN!
I had book club yesterday so today I am just messing around doing little jobs.
My birthday is next Wednesday and I shall be 61! YAY!  I'm bringing cupcakes to Bible study.  I might bring balloons, too.
I hope you are having a lovely September.  I think September goes way too fast.
October is absolutely gorgeous, too.
Thank you for stopping in and checking on me and my doings.  It's very nice of you.

Happy birthday in advance! What a splendid time you had with your family! Glad you're enjoying the kids at bible study. I'm helping with AWANA and the kids are lots of fun. They say the darnedest things, eh?

Oh Pom Pom, I was just thinking about you this morning, and here you are! You have such a warm friendly place to entertain family, and what a nice looking family you have. I love the tea parties, and all the sweet girls in the family. Have a Happy Birthday next week!

Nice to see your family all around and tea parties ars such fun. The girls are growing fast and it's good to see the progress in photos. Of course, the photographer goes missing in the picture. You look great and so does your mom.
Enjoy the weekend.

Julia said...

Ooops. I almost forgot. Happy 61st Birthday next week.
Hugs, Julia

Sounds like great times with your family.
I have a tea cup just like that - Royal Albert, Memory Lane. Had the whole service for 8 but gave it to my daughter and just kept one tea cup for myself.

Those little tea cakes look delicious.

Happy Birthday a little early. Hope you have a wonderful day.

OOh, I hope you have a lovely birthday when it comes!!! How wonderful to have your Mum and all the family together. That Afternoon tea looks yummy!!! I'll have that flat-looking chocolate cake on the top tier! I'm glad your Bible study pupils are so sweet! 10 pupils=heaven!

Happy Birthday, Dear!!

Your life is rich with joy. I'm so happy that so many of your family could be together; thank God for the energy and strength to be truly present for all those fun times.

Don't worry about the photos! A few times I have given my camera to a grandchild to have fun with, documenting activities. They have taken some interesting and memorable pictures that we treasure.
