If You Give a Kid a Camera….
Her view from the shopping cart.
Maura (who’ll be 6 next month) captured her Pap while shopping.
With her mother’s phone. They sent it to me. I asked if I could blog it.
Good one Maura. Thanks for sharing Erika. Here’s the guest blog of the day.
I thought she did well to freeze a moment in time- Saturday afternoon at Costco, after the swim meet.
Looking good, Pap!
I love it when the family calls on FaceTime or SKYPE. Makes them seem so much closer.
I should crop me out of this one but I took this photo by pressing the home button and the top button.
Granddaughter Anna was speaking with me via a device as her Mom looks on.
The light on her face seemed so nice.
I thought it was a real challenge. (I guess that’s the point of the challenge) Some are easier to find just the right photos in response.
It’s just 30 seconds long. Not sure if the link will work.
Seems as if you were just making your entrance at dawn, not so very long ago. I remember going to school after you were born and how excited everyone was for me. I had just gotten my first digital camera so I could take your photo.
Happy 11th Birthday dear Granddaughter Anna Catherine.
Hope you like the photos I selected for your birthday post. Except for the sock monkey and Henry, it is just YOU this year!
How about that? love you, your Grandma, FF Ruthie
At the Farmer’s Market, I saw bunches of Cosmos and my grandmother Hendricks came to mind.
She used to grow them. I bought a bouquet and put them in a vase.
They just look “old fashioned” to me.
This is the grandmother who taught me to knit. My father’s mother.
When I was at Laura and James house, I took this photo of the tag on the afghan they have in their living room.
Her name was Mary Alta but she went by Alta. I have never met anyone else named Alta.
My appreciation for all things handmade and knit was passed down.
Recently I was led to open the back of her Book of Common Prayer and found this list in her hand.
Here is a list of 26 afghans she knit for others when she was in the Nursing Home in Taylorville Illinois.
I’m Ruthie, Mark is my son and Marian is my Mother and “Roy’s Mary” is my sister.
My sister-in-law Bobbie, sent this afghan below (one my grandmother made) to Laura and James. An heirloom gift
The blue one is the one she made for me. Her knitting is just beautiful.
The four grandchildren were here since Thursday night and their mom and dad went to a wedding in Philly this weekend.
We had a nice time together and the house is feeling pretty empty now.
Today they watched Steve remove a dead squirrel out of the fireplace and take it outside. Michael said, “You’ve got an animal in your fire pit.”
Thank goodness for the glass doors. Guess that screen on top of the chimney came off!
Missing all the fun you bring to me. Hope you’ll plan a return visit soon.
Happy Birthday to my dear DIL.
Love you lots. The kids made a lot of messages for you at the Children’s Museum today.
Hey Mom Happy Birthday. Love Anna, Michael, Jack and Maura
My sister’s visiting our brother in Okanogan WA and has sent a few pics from her phone. It’s considered “high desert”.
I wish I were with them.
Here are bins of firewood, stacked, ready to burn to keep warm this winter
The other day she sent a pic of these delicious peaches
like a car graveyard
A couple of the ingredients for the soup I made my daughter-in-law last weekend.
dThat cabbage cost one dollar.
Carrots, celery, onion, garlic from Okanogan WA from my brother. Peeled off a couple of the outer leaves.
( iPhone 5 photographs. Wondering if I need the 6)
