Children, Grandchildren it just keeps going . . .

1) This is my favorite picture of Heather's Kids in the bath tub! Soon they will be in bed and the noise will stop for a little while. Olivia is 5, Elisha is 3 1/2 and Samuel is 7. 2) Here is Elisha after he found the peanut butter, it comes in a big tub in Cape Town, S. A. I don't think he ate much but boy was there a mess to clean up. 3)Samuel and Olivia in a tree, behind their house on our nature walk. Unfortunately, when we got home we found some ticks. We took care of them post haste! 4)Darren and Samuel waiting for the lamb chops and sausage to finish cooking on the grill. 5)Gary, my oldest modeling the shirt Heather brought me from S. A. that was too small. So . . . Gary would come into the room wearing it and just stand there listening to our conversation. Finally, one of us would notice him and we would all laugh. Then he would go take it off and then suddenly a little later he would be back. This is the last shot of him and he finally took it off for the night. I still can't wear it but it hangs in my closet. 6)That is Sweet Reagan sucking on her Binky she was cutting teeth and that helped with the pain. 7)That is a photo of the four generations. Heather, Lenna, Johnnie, my mom, and Reagan when she was small. When Heather comes in July we will take another picture of the four generations. 8)Gavin, the pistol, in the group. He is always talking and he doesn't care if you aren't listening he just keeps talking. He often say Daddy, I hear a dinosaur and it is always Rexy! 9)Reagan in her green dress with my shoes on. She even got up and walked in them. No small feat for her feet. 10)Gavin again acting silly. 11)Olivia in the swing at the park in Cape Town. We had fun that day playing in the park and climbing on the wooden platform we pretended was a pirate ship. We did a lot of Ahoy Matey!!! on the ship that day.
12)Gary again in the "shirt" see he just shows up! 13) Reagan when she was crawling now she is walking all over the place. 14)Tris, my youngest son. He is the one who is going to Cal. this summer to become an actor. He graduates from a college in D. C. this week with a Masters in Shakespearean Theatre. He is also going to be in 4 plays two of them he is the lead and does some fencing. 15)Maggie, Gary's wife and mother of Gavin and Reagan.
16)Heather, my only daughter, with Reagan, who is married to Darren, the sausage man in the next picture. She is mother to Samuel, Olivia and Elisha, peanut butter boy! 17)And finally, Gary and Heather at Samuel's birthday party before they went to Cape Town.
I love you all very much. I can't wait to see Heather, Darren, Samuel, Olivia, and Elisha when they get here July 8th. I do get to see Gary, Maggie and the kids pretty often. Tris, that is another story. I guess I will see him before he goes to Cal. I was hoping I was going to get to see him in the plays but that wasn't meant to be.
Well, I am going to bed!
God Bless ~


  1. Hi Leena, great pictures!

    I'm sorry I left you off the list for the Totally Useless SAL. Purely an accident, compiling the list really can be confusing. I will put your name in right now. You also asked for some help with arranging your blog and I would be happy to help if I can. Send me an e-mail so that we can correspond my e-mail address is yoyo_9203 at yahoo dot com (leave out the spaces and use a period where it says dot). I do not have time right a this minute to read back too far in your blog, but I promise I will stop by later today and read up on you and your goings on. I await your e-mail.

  2. Hi Leena,

    I'm loving the pictures of your family. Isn't this blogging thing the funnest thing in the world. I love connecting with people I otherwise wouldn't ever get to know.
    I'm thrilled you are joining our SAL. I will keep you posted on the progress. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll add you to my blog roll.
