Memories and Looking Forward

I love looking at photos and reliving memories made by visits of children and grandchildren.
They are the light of my life.  I recognize that a benefit of living away makes visits so glorious and joyful.  The anticipation, the visit and memories made are precious and priceless.  The element of being in each others presence because it's just one big sleepover is just fun and different.  I would still love more time together and a closer location, but for now I will bask in the joy of the visits.

I look back at these photos and experience the joy again. At the same time I anticipate what this next year will bring.  Already in 2012 we've seen Elliott, Beckett, Trevor, Brennan, Bella, Claire and Lily.  We are looking forward to seeing all either here, at the farm or in Arizona.  Here's to looking forward with anticipation of creating new joyful memories.

 Yes, these pictures are not in order, and some date back to 2010.  Memories relives make me happy and feel hopeful for more to be made.  I love you all, thanks for the memories!   Nana......

Guess I need to get a new camera, mine died 12/24/11.  That's the last of my picture files.

Photos from 2010 Christmas Eve dinner

                                                       2010 Christmas Day with baby Beckett
Why photos from 2010, my camera quit working Christmas Eve.  Wow, new battery on it's way, thanks to Elliott and his amazon quick ship.

First Timers at the farm

 Fun times at the farm with a whole lot of "first timers".  Jonny, Krista, Max and Charlie, Elliott, Alisa and Beckett. This photo shows first bites of s'mores.  

 Beckett Couldn't wait for dinner any longer so he reached over and took the bread that was cooling on the table and started taking bites.  Really warmed my heart, let him keep nibbling until his dinner arrived.

Max reading his rocket book in the tree house.  His favorite place to hang out.

 Lots of rocking and bouncing

The pumpkin hunt

Rocket launching.....
