Daddy and Daughter…

Here’s the side by side, Beth! I need to get a newborn photo of Jamie to scan to do a side by side comparison, too.

1 week old sent to us by the kids.

Posting the rest of my random photos until we travel east again to get some fresh photos!

And speaking of random here’s a photo of my dear old Pop with his great granddaughter Ellie taken several weeks ago.

Ellie is about 14 months or so here and Pop is almost 94! We so enjoy the instagram and facebook photos and videos of our dear little grandniece Ellie. Right now our Addy is Pop’s youngest Great Grandchild that we know of.

Continuing on the random theme…Yippee for some random sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest. We had a good church service on Sunday talking about being doers of the Word and capped off with Communion. Came home and had a nice breakfast of eggs and waffles with a couple hot dogs cut up and served alongside the scrambled eggs. Do you ever use a hot dog for your breakfast meat? Nathan’s skinless are my favorite. I donned my grubby work clothes and wellies to pull some weeds while the earth was still moist and weeds were easier to pull. I will also mow the lawn for the first time this year if the sunshine continues on Monday! Here’s a sneak peek at some paths Katie and I walked on last week. I’ll share more as the week progresses.

Linking up to Mosaic Monday with Maggie at Normandy Life.

Life is Grand…

We had a new member delivered to our extended family the day before Christmas. This is my newest Grandniece.

My little brother became a grandfather for the first time.

After a couple of months the great grand girl was ready to travel across Los Angeles to meet her Great Grandfather, my dear old Pop.

Great Dzeda (grandfather in Russian) was quite pleased to meet her in person.

Looks like my brother is quite relaxed in his new role as a grandfather.

12717705_10156543519695191_6592183693989189909_nI’m sure her Great Grandfather prayed a blessing on his new great granddaughter. My pop prayers for all his children and grandchildren and great grandchildren every day!

I’m sorry that I don’t have a photo of my sister in law holding her new granddaughter but here’s a photo of both happy grandmothers from the baby shower back in October. And here are the grateful parents with their healthy little baby girl.

I nabbed this photo of the new daddy, my new grand niece, and the new mommy. Good Golly! Truth be told I nabbed all these photos off of social media or text attachments except for the one of the grandmothers! Life really is grand!

I’m linking up to ABC Wednesday started by Mrs. Nesbitt and carried on by Roger and a great team!

I’m also linking up to Tuesday’s Treasures with Tom the Backroads Traveller.

I’m happy to announce the sun has broken through the clouds here in the Seattle area and we are promised a nice few days before rain returns. Now my head is spinning on what I should do with this sunny predicament…cleaning house is not on the list!
