Random Tuesday ~ Family is where the heart is!!

Wow!  I have missed you all!  Been jetting around the country and landed in Lancaster, Ohio (just south of Columbus) to see my Mom and my brothers!!  Fun times!

Myself and my mom!

Isn't she gorgeous?  84 years young!

Dr. John and I had a good time!  We just hung out with Mom, Ilene, and then my brothers Jack and Mark.  Told stories and ate...isn't that how to spend a vacation?  Ha!!

Then Dr. John and I flew back to New Mexico and Mom joined us!  Woot!  Woot!  She is here now and will visit until Saturday morn.  So I had my son and his family come for dinner and meet their Great Grandmother.  My son, Lee, hasn't seen her for 20 years!  All they have exchanged is a few phone calls and lots of pictures!!  Sigh!  And then she got to meet her great grandchildren, most for the first time!!

It was quite the reunion...lots of tears and plenty of stories and tons of pictures!!  My Mom was in heaven!  She just couldn't get over how beautiful the kids are!  We had a ham dinner and stories continued throughout the day!  Dr. John was tickled too.  Soon our time together was over...too soon.  But all were sated and happy!!

Here are some pics...

Today and tomorrow, taking Mom will remember camera this time.  Ha!!  By the way!  The ham dinner was delish, if I do say so myself!

Though it was fun to go to Lancaster and see Mom and was sure nice to come home.  Missed my Sleep Comfort Bed!!  Sigh!!

Off for my walk...see you all soon!

Oh, I almost forgot...I am putting a piece into a show at the Resort, Buffalo Thunder on Thursday!  Fingers crossed!

Make sure and visit with Stacy at Stacy Uncorked and see all the other Randomizers share their stories and their week!!

Have a magical and blessed day!
Hugging you


Let us not forget!!  9/11!!

How exciting for your mom to get to see and meet her descendants. I wouldn't want to live that far away from mine.

Family get-togethers are the greatest fun. All smiles everywhere and your little mum in the middle of it.

Lovely time for your Mom and all the offspring. Hard to be so far away I bet.
