This baby, dear readers, was my 8th Birthday present. I got him the day before my birthday. I never asked for a baby for my birthday. If you click on the picture and make it bigger, you'll see the look on my face. I'm so ashamed! Of course, my older brother, who is behind me didn't look so happy either! However, my older sister is looking on adoringly, while my younger sister is smugly thinking "I'm not the baby anymore!" My mother, well, she looks like a woman who's just had her FIFTH child. Enough said.
Happy birthday little brother. I'm glad, now that we're old, that I got you the day before my birthday. Tomorrow I'll go into what else I got! So stay tuned........really, y'all come back tomorrow now!
My sister's friend died last week along with a 94 year old dear and close family friend, filling our weekend with two visitations and two funerals. Both were believers, so although sad, we were comforted to know they are both residing in heaven today.
Sad events often bring about family reunions as was the case last weekend, bringing two sisters and various cousins home.
Sister Debbie.......who, incidentally recently told me to stop putting her picture on the internet! Sorry, Sissie, but why ever would you want me to stop when you're so stunningly gorgeous. (What woman could resist that compliment?)
Following are pictures of various family members who were here for the weekend.
Oh, another stunningly gorgeous sister AND the one who gave us the DNA to make us so gorgeous, my mother!
Stunningly gorgeous family!
Proud marine cousin..........notice my dog saluting and thanking a marine!
Stunningly handsome brother and gorgeous sister in law.......yes, yes, I am sorry I started the stunningly whatever thing, but where would YOUstop????? Can't make anyone mad you know!!!! :)
Finally, THE BIRTHDAY BOY!!!!!!! with my dear husband. They are certainly gorgeous!
A friend, looking at my family pictures, made the comment that I am truly blessed with family. So, I would like to end this post by saying.......thanks be to God who gives us more than we could ever ask or imagine. Ephesians 3:20 (my paraphrase)
