 It is Birthday Time again here in the little shoe.

 Once a little baby I held in my arms now a Teenager...13...

Time....where does it go????




I remember this day like if it were yesterday. Surrounded by my family and my 3 best girlfriends.... Jewels , M~ and Lis~  

They all had young ones and babies of their own at home....Meant the world to me that they were with me on this still does.

Greg was so proud to hold his new daughter....and all the protective older sisters she has ,kept a watchful eye on her ...they still do today.


As time has moved on grow going off to joining the moving out on their getting married...

I'm grateful and blessed for the adventure....and the photographs I have taken along the way. And as the last of my daughters hit the teenage era .... I look back with great love....  Happy  Birthday my youngest daughter..I love you so!!!

~Tag Sales ,Sleep overs....& a 4 day weekend ~

Living in the Pacific Northwest....the weather this time of year changes quickly...

There is a warm gentle breeze with the sun shining that will in an instant become Frost...Fog...Cold...Wet and yes Snow.

The joke in our town is "Wait ten minutes and it will change"

No worries....I love my little town and all it has to offer . While driving kids to their sleep overs at friends houses...we are greeted with natures beauty....

 Like the trees changing colors and the leaves cascading down hitting cars passing hot cider on chilly Autumn afternoons...and sweet naps with a sheriff and his partner...which freed me for a few moments to run across the street to the tag sale... 50+ years of treasures up for sale...

 I found this.....1940's  with a train , Sale tag $40
A mum of 7 daughters....a dress that might get a walk down the  aisle ???

Did I mention....everything at the Tag Sale was Free??? HA!! It was.

My younger daughter offered to model it .She sure looks pretty.As you can tell...I snap chatted one of the pictures to all the girls... Well to my surprise... I got a call from another daughter saying ,she would love to wear it at Christmas time .

Yep...that is how that felt....Yep never a dull moment.

...moving on...

Playing and exploring in his now over grown playground....

This is an Oregon kid for you....its cold outside and he insists on a frozen treat...well now ,who am I to say no...

Tomorrow will bring us a day to honor our Veterans ....Raised military...The day has always been important . A day to remember...A day to be grateful ....

Thank you for all you do....

~Guess Who's coming to Dinner~

With all of the children I have had.... This last little detail...

well ,he is not like the rest....


Case in point....


He refused to sit in his highchair tonight without his buddies.

Funny thing is...never did any of his siblings do this. They were all fine leaving their toys to be while I called them for dinner.

Just goes to matter how many children 

you are blessed with .....

They will all  be

their own person with their own style !!!

Yep...loving this second time "New Mum" life (;
