Well as you can see from the dates, I have been slacking off on the blogging thing. So here are some random photos of the granddaughters. We had a great time in Colorado for Jordyn's graduation. She will be off to UNC in Greeley in August. She will be studying art and she definitely picked a good major. She is an awesome artist. If anyone has Facebook, you can go to her site thru mine and see some of her fantastic artwork.

Gary will behaving rotator cuff surgey on June 7. He has a complete tear on the right shoulder and the tendons have retracted. Not a lot of fun for him. He's truly missing softball, racketball and other fun things. Hopefully this will eliminate most of his pain. About 6-12 weeks in to his recovery he will have the left shoulder done. Not a complete tear, not all that much pain, but it needs to be fixed. I hope he can handle me being his "nurse".

I continue to do my quilting and it truly is a passion. I'm making baby quilts since we found out Jeff and Shawna are expecting a little "Peanut" in December. Gives me something to strive for. It's so much fun making baby quilts and all the kids will not be needing blankets for a long time.

Enjoy the random shots of the girls. I'll try to be better in the future - but can't promise.

Congrats Jordyn on graduating high school

Jordyn and her best friends after graduation!

Thanksgiving in the White Mountains

Now, if I were really on my game, I'd have taken pictures of the fabulous food we had to eat. Turkey and all the trimmings. Lisa and Kym you put me to shame. Having said that, I'd rather post pics of my granddaughters who were chillin' on the bedroom pullout bed and watching TV. They had a great time at grandma and grandpa's house. Chloe the cat wasn't too sure what was going on and hid away a lot of the time. But after a few days, she warmed up and didn't scamper away when the girls came close to her. But I will say, she's much more calm and content these days with just us in the house. She did check things out after everyone left to be sure everyone was gone, so she could roam at will.
We had a great visit and I got the girls' Christmas shopping done to send back with Ren and Phil. That saved Ren the effort to try to locate gifts from us to put under the tree. I feel really good about this

Fall Photos

Toni went with Ren and Phil to a subdivision's park to take pictures for potential Christmas Cards. She took this beautiful photo of Jordyn ~ just before she got her hair cut. But it will grow back, and she definitely has a head of hair.
The weather was perfect for a photo shoot and the pics that Ren walked away with are all great. Now she has to choose one for the card.
This one of Jordyn is my favorite of her in recent months. She is so photogenic and it's very natural.

Well, a Sixteenth birthday is a milestone in anyone's life. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it to the party in Colorado, but we did get to view it on Scott's security cameras. It was a little hard to watch sometimes, the pangs of guilt hit me every now and again. But a good time was had by all.

Even though we weren't there, our gift to Jordyn was a hit. She's such a photography buff (wonder where she gets that Camera Boy (Scott)). So a camera was a very good choice for her. Thanks to Toni and her insight, we sent her a nice, turquoise CoolPix camera and she loved it. Happy Birthday Honey. We love you and wish we could have been there.

The easiest way to share pictures is in a video, so here's a little more of Jeff and Shawna's wedding, with the granddaughters as the stars.

A Sneak Peak of the Wedding Photos

We are all so excited that Jeff and Shawna are married. Here are a few photos to wet your appetite. They make a handsome couple, don't you think. They are back from their honeymoon in Costa Rica and say it was a wonderful place to visit. Now it's back to reality and the real world. Congrats Jeff and Shawna.
