Precious Family Times

I have had a wonderful weekend, spending time with special folk.
On Saturday we had my youngest granddaughter Emily
for the day and we had lots of fun, shopping and baking.
She also went for a walk with Ralph and Titch
while I cleaned up the devastation in the kitchen:o)
She also rearranged some of my teddies
 and then asked for her photo to be taken with them....

Sunday was spent with some of The Murphy Clan.
It was my Auntie Theresa's 74th Birthday,
she is my mother's only surviving sibling.
So eleven of us got together for Sunday Lunch to celebrate.
There are only a couple of photo's as the women
in this family dislike getting their photo taken.
I think it is a shame as there are not many photographs of the family at all.

Auntie Theresa age 74.

My little sister Julia and me.

From the youngest through to the eldest member of my family,
the time spent was magical.

Family is Very Precious.

Mood = Very Happy
Food = Celebratory

Today I am Grateful for:

Family laughter and memories.
The family links that keep my mother close.
The joy of grandchildren.

Family is THE most important thing. Other than health. Glad you had a wonderful weekend! AND got some pics taken! I am rue'ing that now; all of the years I said no to pictures. Once I'm gone, my family won't have much in the way of photographic memories of me between the ages of 43 and 57.
