Throwback Thursday

Eight years ago in Hardy, Virginia.

Four grandkids running in the field behind their other grandmother’s home-instead of posing quietly for a Christmas card photo.

We had fun, if my memory serves me right. Ha.   I’ll have to see what the family sent out for the card that year.

Keeping Cool at the Movies

It’s been unbearably hot this past week and one cool place to go is the movies. Three of the grandkids and I went to the movie theatre to see Toy Story 4.  We took turns sitting in the chair of this cardboard commercial for an upcoming movie.

 When I was a kid I loved reading Charles Addams cartoons in a big book we had in our house.

Throwback 2013

Throwback to 2013.

Trying to get that photo in the backyard with the grandkids and a puppy. Photographed by my DIL or her Mom.  I can’t remember. I’m holding the baby doll in the second shot, you can see the hair. Six years sure went by fast!

 

A Wish for Every Happiness

A wish for every happiness, always.

Cheers to the newly married royal couple.

Love one another is the perfect theme for the world.

Today I saw my parents’ fiftieth wedding anniversary (1939-89) champagne flutes in Mark and Erika’s China cabinet. Mark and Erika (2002) and Laura and James (2011) both used these flutes at their weddings.

I had set the alarm this morning for five AM but Grandma Mar woke up before then and texted me upstairs. We’re here together this weekend, watching the grandkids. We woke up the girls and they made it down to the couch. They fell back asleep, snuggled in blankets until we woke them up when the bride arrived at Windsor Castle.

 

 

 

 

 

Friends I know were watching snd texting from Florida and Pennsylvania. It was a very happy day. Wishing Harry and Meghan a long and happy life together.

And in VIRGINIA FF Mar Bakes Cookies, Too

Maternal grandma (FFMarlene) baked peanut butter chip cookies for our grandkids Anna, Michael, Jack and Maura.

We are going to have a doubly sweet family weekend together. Our tins of cookies will disappear at lightning speed.

T-Shirt Under the Microscope

Last week when a couple of the grandkids were in town we visited this exhibit. Here’s Maura at the Carnegie Science Center.

See the Structure of her knitted shirt?
