Happy New Year

Friday, November 29, 2013


It has been wonderful but all good things must end.  Today it is homeward bound to Slim, and the rest of my critters as I leave these critters that gave me such a loving welcome.
Hope wrote this on their television.
Met up with brother and sil for pizza.
Michael behaves himself in picture with Aunt Elaine.

I was shocked to see how much I have shrunk until I realized Michael was standing on his tip toes.
All kinds of turkeys:)
Beautiful family:)


  1. Beautiful family indeed :)

  2. This post brought tears to my eyes. Makes me miss my family. You sure have a beautiful one!

    Love the new header. Does your family read your blog?

  3. You DO have a beautiful family! It looks like you had a great time and a great holiday! :) (Rob)

  4. Such a wholesome blog. Your family is lovely ! I am sooo glad that you had such a good time!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your hens!

  5. PS and other loved ones too!

  6. A beautiful family is right! Love those hats and the polka dot socks (I have the same ones)! Looks like such a fun group of lovely people. I bet Michael is a character and I would love being around him. You are blessed!

  7. That looks like a fun group that is more than just good looking. So glad you had such a great time.

  8. Indeed they are beautiful - and I love the hats. Most of my bunch thinks they are too cool for hats.

  9. This just has me grinning from ear to ear, Annie. :)

  10. Wow you have a big and loving family. Looks like you had a wonderful time. I love all the photos.

    Yes, what a beautiful family. I am glad you had a happy holiday.

  12. There is nothing like family. So glad you were able to spend time with them for Thanksgiving.

  13. What a great thanksgiving it looks like you had. Such lovely children must make you so proud, and you had shared clean-up!

  14. Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog post today, Grannie Annie! I feel the same way about you and many of our mutual readers!

  15. I'm glad you had such a good time! I LOVE, LOVE the hats too!

  16. Oh yes, Annie! You do have a very beautiful family. Your Michael looks like a fun character who could cheer anybody up.

    Thank you:)

    It brings tears to my eyes too because they are so loving and wrapped me in such caring this Thanksgiving. Once in a while they will read my blog but rarely. My sister and brother will catch up on it before they are going to see me in case I quiz them. lol

    Rob and Monica
    Rob, we had a great holiday and it looks like you and Monica did also.

    My family is caring and lovely but my hens are a mess. Even the new ones are striking and egg production is back down. I remain perplexed.

    Aunt Betsy
    Beth was delighted to have found her polka dotted socks. Evidently they had been missing for a while so she was wearing them proudly. Michael is quite a character but his cousins are all the same. I never know what any of them are going to pull on me. And yes, I am richly blessed.

    Arkansas Patti
    Yep all are more than just pretty faces:)

    There is a picture of everyone in a turkey hat. Even one of me with the cooked turkey and I don't have my wig on. It is well hidden I hope.

    Elephant's Child

    That makes me happy to make you smile:)

    I have happy and intelligent grandchildren that often make comments that sound like things your daughters would say. Very clever youngsters all.

    Yes, and you know what pretty grandchildren are all about don't you?

    Changes in the wind
    My daughter insisted we gather at her home this year and it was a wise decision. It would have been a lot harder for me to have everyone here without Ron.

    Not a lot of shared clean-up. My daughter and son-in-law are like a couple of cyclones in action when it comes to removing debris. Blink and it is gone.

    Yep, we've both been her a while haven't we?

    Riot Kitty
    What did you guys do for Thanksgiving? Surely you have turkey hats since you don't eat turkey.

    Michael has a way of keeping me on my toes...even if he has to stand on his toes to do it. They are all a great bunch.

  18. What a beautiful family! I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. I love that you were surrounded by love this holiday especially.

  19. I love the silly hats! :-)
