Looking back

These photos help, but just a bit, with the homesickness I feel when we're too many states away.
Photos from when Tab and the family came for a visit in April which seems like forever ago.

Tab in the kitchen!
Good food and good fun!

Aww. What cuties. The time must fly by while they're visiting. I do not even want to think about maybe living far from my kids and grandkids when the day comes that I'm a grandmom.

The glasses are adorable on her .

Zoanna, I probably mentioned my idea of having your son or daughter sign a "10 Mile Contract"?
The agreement that 10 miles is the greatest distance apart allowable when they grow up and move away. I suppose there should also be a least distance between, say 3 miles at least and 10 miles at most! It doesn't work that way, I realize and I certainbly do not want to get in the way of "leaving and cleaving"!

10 Mile Contract, interesting concept there :) . Good pictures! I know it must be so hard not being able to see them in all of their stages of growing up. Seems like kids are forever changing! Definitely makes the times together be appreciated that much more.

It was the house we were going to live in for the rest of our lives and the house my Dad helped in so many ways including laying 2,600 sq. ft. of slate tile, but that’s another story. I was speaking of “Stink Pink”. When we were building Main Street house, a man named Bob was working with Mike and taught us the game. We put in some long hours and this was one of the pastimes as we worked! The rule is to give a hint that describes two rhyming words. If the words have one syllable, you say “It’s a “Stink Pink“. Two syllables- “Stinky Pinky” Three syllables- Stinkity Pinkity” and so on! An example of a “Stink Pink” is: A Large Feline. (A. Fat Cat) An example of a “Stinky Pinky” is: A Comic Cottontail. (A. Funny Bunny) A “Stinkity Pinkity” hint is: Okay, I’ve drawn a blank! Could someone come up with a three syllable “Stinkity Pinkity”? So you get the idea. The words…

My little Mama

Johnny and "Bubbles"
My little Mama My birth-giving Mama You go before me Braver frailty leading on And I wonder at being knit together in your womb At loving hands attending my helplessness And you laboring at leaving Laboring at dying Not knowing how because you have always lived Full and free My lovely Mama  I love you always

My Mama went to be with the Lord on February 9, 2011 She was able to be at home when she died. I am blessed to have been beside her with Mike and Dad at her passing and to have seen her trust her soul to the Lord.
