Hello all who still frequent this little ol blog…
I know it’s been a while since I posted anything but alas… sometimes I just have too much going on.. and I can’t quite get it together… I promise to TRY and do better…
So. let’s see.. after downloading my pics I thought I would just dialog about each event in the order they came in…
At the time this picture was taken .. The kids had stopped by for a little visit with V.
We all watched the wonderfully engrossing show called VINCENT !
I tell you.. I could watch that show all day… it’s riveting.
Here the kids were ooing and cooing to Baby V… Mike kept saying Hi..but more drawn out like…. Hiiiiiii…. when suddenly Vincent seems to totally imitate him with a baby Hiiiii
They both almost flipped… it came out like a perfect… Hiiiiii
Shock and Awe !!
Another big even going on this summer is the long awaited visit from Great Aunt Michele and Uncle Michael who have come over from the UK.
“ Hiiiiiii”… Just kidding he didn’t really do it again.. but it sure looks like it doesn’t it..
“ Hmmm so this is the lady I keep hearing about! “
“ She seems friendly enough… and seems to have taken an immediate liking to me… Hmmm go figure!”
“I guess Chicks just dig me”
“ I just LOVE this one… she feeds me”
A few days later Maria was scheduled to have her gallbladder taken out..
“Oh Mom… I feel so bad for you!”
She was a trooper going in… However… it was NOT a great experience getting through the whole thing… Thank Goodness she is doing much better now.
“ Getting a part of you taken out….oooOOOO… That’s gotta hurt”
Big Brother was able to score some FANTASTIC seats for the Tiger’s Game..8 Rows up, right behind Home base !
Great Seats…Beautiful Night… Great Company… Fireworks at the end of the game… Too bad the tigers dropped the ball ( literally and figuratively and lost the game ) ugh !
My gosh woman… put the beer down.. and put those things away… it’s just a game!!!! Lush !
Then there is the events of TODAY….
It is a bitter sweet day… I still miss my Dad so much… I can’t even explain how much… He was just a good guy.. Ugh. He would have been 80 years old this year.. Miss You Pa !
But I also enjoy celebrating the wonderful husband and father to my children.. He deserves to have at least one day to be officially celebrated as well as a little bit on the remaining 364 days as well.
I am lucky enough to still have my father in law … so we celebrated all together at a wonderful Brunch…Happy 1st Father’s Day Mike… You done good… You done REAL good !!Not to mention THIS wonderful Husband and Father. He done good too.. Sorry ladies.. but He is the BEST !!
And how about this Bloke…He’s a Dad too.. and his kiddles over in the UK remembered to wish him well… Now….That’s good kids for ya !!
Happy Father’s Michael!!
And of course the patriarch of the family… with his kids.. Happy Father’s Day Dad…
Ah… MEN !! as in wow Big burly MEN.. not Amen ..
Sometimes I STILL can’t believe we have this little guy… and that we are Grandparents… and to think I am a mere 35 years old…* Cough * Cough..
WHAT?… I was a child bride…
Speaking of men again….That’s a handsome group of men there“
“Ooops sorry Great Grandpa… Grandpa here isn’t steering me very well”
* *On purpose !
“Uh… Sorry Uncle Matt… ”
“Trick or Treat… smell my feet !!!”
It’s Sunday… Looks like someone is pulling out their new bible.
Red Red Wine !!
Mr R getting some cute cards…
OH MY !!! How ironic. someone is getting a new Grill.. How convenient to be getting new grilling tools… hmmmmm !!
All these people opening up gifts.. have left me bored and hungry…
I think I’ll just take a little nibble of a knee…
A fillet of foot…
Ok.. Ok.. I won’t eat you up anymore… but it is so so hard not to want to eat this Chunky Monkey !!
I’ll just cover you with kisses instead…
Great Aunt Mickey to the rescue !! How cute is the outfit from the UK crew… I’d say the Union Jack looks mighty nice on this little American.
Kisses Kisses galore..
“Listen here Mate… You simply MUST come to England for a spot of tea”
“Do we have a deal?”
“DEAL !…. Let’s shake on it !! “
Well the food /father/ baby eating / love fest has come to a close… and while the men were all high fiving themselves for the GREAT accomplishment of procreating.
Maria doesn’t seem to be as impressed…
Or Maybe… just maybe
She was being her usually silly … crazy self..
Yep.. that’s it…
Again Happy 1st Father’s day Mike.. Thank You for YOUR part in helping bring this beautiful baby into our lives..
Happy Father’s day to all you Dad’s out there… and all the men who may not be Dads but are father figures to those you love..
Love You Pa
