Family Time

DSC_0699Almost two weeks ago, my sister asked us to come over for dinner. I loved that I didn’t have to do anything. Jackie had the fillings made, Angie was the egg roll roller, Mark was the fryer, and Emilee assisted where needed. I only had to run the camera.


Thank goodness Mark is capable of running the camera too. 🙂


Eggs rolls, rice, and noodles. That was what we had for dinner. Yum!!!


I loved that Jennifer and Megan were able to join us too.


Ava and Megan have such fun together. It makes my heart happy when they have a chance to be together.

DSC_0713Random photo, but I thought it looked kind of cool.

DSC_0716It’s hard to believe that little man Truman can already control this motorcycle.

Of course he does have the riding genes built into him.




Here is the t-shirt quilt that Jackie made for Joshua from his high school t-shirts and carefully chosen fabrics and ties; with lovely quilting and the softest backing ever. What a wonderful way to end the evening, with a Facetime call from Joshua in New York as he opened his gift.



My Joshua was so gracious and waited until Sunday to open his gift after he got off of work that day so that we all could see his expression of joy.



  1. Love the family pictures. That’s one thing I really miss since my parents are now gone is family getting together. I miss my siblings. Love that yours live close enough to be together. sw

  3. Such FUN photos! Nice you didn’t have to cook for a change — even tho you do enjoy cooking. 😉
    Hadn’t seen Ava & Truman in awhile .. so I was shocked!!
    I like your (silly) random photo. 🙂
    Such a unique quilt Jackie created for Joshua! I can see his joy!!
    Love ‘n Hugs,

  4. Thank you for sharing your wonderful family photos. I’m so glad you are all close enough to get together. My goodness, have those kids grown or what?! What a lovely idea to make a quilt like that. It looks wonderful. Joshua sure looks happy!
