My son and his family come over often to have dinner with us. I watch Claire, some, while my daughter-in-law works. Claire is one of the treasures of my life......there are many. Nick is also one of my treasures. All my children and their children are. My two other granddaughters are in California.....across the country. I don't get to see them often and have missed out on much of their lives. I hate that!!! So, I enjoy every minute with Claire!! She's a bustling 2 year old right now. Into everything...with a mind of her own!! BUT, what a joy baby!!

It's very interesting watching my son (who used to be the baby before Danielle came) with his daughter. I see myself so often in him. I think "I taught him that"........sometimes with a heavy heart. He is me when I was his age!! Very passionate. Not always very sure of himself, but trying very hard. I like the man he's grown into. I'm proud. He has his moments and his faults, but he really tries....NO...... he REALLY tries!!

Check out my Slide Show!

This is my little brag book. It's not finished because it's still only June. I may have to do several of these!!
We live in such a beautiful part of the country!! I'm greatful every day for the beauty that surrounds us. All the pictures were taken no more than 100 miles from my home and some are at my mom's. I LOVE IT HERE!!
