Mothers Day 2011

My first Mothers Day as a Grandmother…..it changes everything!

The day began for me with a bacon and egg breakfast cooked by Greg and Jordan.

A cup of tea expertly made by Jordan topped it off nicely.

One of Jordan’s gifts to me was to clean up his room, it was a lovely sight.

Leah and Corrie visited with Brooklynn after lunch and we all sat around watching her show us all the new things she is doing, including crawling, blowing raspberries and pulling herself up on the furniture.

After hearing a suggestion beginning a tradition of taking a photo of the three generations of girls on mothers day, we had lots of laughs in the attempt to get all three of us looking ta the camera at the same time…….

This reminded me of this photograph of 4 generations of girls.

Even then, getting all 4 of us to look at the camera at the same time was impossible. Nana was 81 my mother 54, I was 32 and Leah 2

Thanks for visiting.

Hi Julie! I'm so happy for you to have been royally treated today. Jordan is just a perfect son, isn't he? That four generation photo is very special, and your three generation photo attempts make me smile. You're all adorable. You are blessed to have a granddaughter so you can take such a picture. Enjoy Brooklynn. She's a cutie.
