I thought it was automatic. An electronic note to me. Six years is a long time. Today’s post is #2132.
Six years ago today I started blogging at wordpress. I thought at least they would send a notice… Congrats on Six Years of Blogging. I’ve seen badges on other blogs for years of blogging accomplished.
I told my granddaughter it was my blogaversary and she said, “What’s that?”
No drum roll, no brass band, waaaaah waaaah waaaaaah, whine, whine, whine,
No one really cares, just me.
This was the first photo I blogged on July 14, 2009.
Murphy passed away and Michael is going to be ten in August.
For today’s 2015 photo gallery I’m posting the grandchildren feeling exhilarated at Kennywood
And a silhouette of the Phantom’s Revenge
P.s. 11th hour update. Thanks WP
March 21st is grandson John Patrick’s 8th birthday.
Where does the time go? Happy Birthday Jack!
Jack and Henry

Sneaking a cookie from cousin Vicci’s wedding cookie table. (Aunt Linda’s curtain veils weren’t enough)
Today’s post shot with the mirrorless Sony camera.
Henry was ecstatic it was snowing this morning.
He ran around like a rabbit. Playing in it. Rubbing his nose into a drift. Snow in his beard. He posed for me on the fire pit.
I didn’t even ask him to. I never saw a dog enjoy a snowfall as much as Henry did today.
The kids got on their snowpants and boots and slid down the front lawn and built a snowman
We came inside to warm up and I made sour cream pancakes.
Serenity – continued. Finding photos to go with this week’s theme has been satisfying. Thanks for looking at today’s gallery of images that feel peaceful in a variety of ways.
Serenity (noun): The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
Not sure what the exact percentage might be, but many people really aren’t thinking they’d like their photograph taken. (Brides and homecoming/prom goers are definite exceptions)
Maybe people don’t mind taking it of themselves on a phone at a cool venue to share but sometimes you’re just not “feeling it”
Last year I received the Awkward Family Photo® Game but those photos can’t be recreated easily, even with intention.
Granddaughter Anna (11) likes to try with her siblings, giving them directions. We have fun but it doesn’t always rhyme.
Henry the Airedale adds some excitement and action, creates a blur, while sporting his Christmas tie.
The shot just before the one above
Christmas morning candid with the available light of the tree
Christmas night Laura and James were leaving and it was WAIT, let’s make Mom happy and let her take our pic”
When one of the grandkids sees something when they’re out and about and thinks-
“oooh, a good one for Grandma’s Blog”, takes a picture to send to me, I like to share it.
Good to encourage their “seeing”.
I told Anna I’ll help her start a blog of her very own. I think she has a great eye. She could start once a week, not daily.
Two years ago Anna took the photo of the pick up truck filled with mannequin legs, headed “to the dummy store.”
