The reason for me posting the following photos today is quite simple really.
Katie, my lovely and sweet ( well most times ) 15 year old daughter let me.....
her " You are just a thorn in my side " mother, actually, physically take a photo of her today!
Can't you just vision the sea's parting and the angels singing?
No? Well believe me when I tell you that this IS a major triumph for me. Mind you, she will take plenty of photos of herself . She will let her friends take photos of her. But not " You are just a thorn in my side " mom.
So I thought " Why not post my most recent photos of all of the girls and women that I am closest to.
In this photo of " My Katie girl " as I like to refer to her, you will also see another of my girls. Our dog " Roxy ". Roxy was a stray that wandered up our driveway about two years ago.
She is the most loving and sweet dog that I have ever had the pleasure of owning. We were all very happy that we made the decision to take her in. Katie is rubbing her belly which Roxy adores!
Please notice Roxy's goofy position !
I couldn't post a photo of Roxy without posting one of our four year old Pug named " Ruby ". Ruby is the Alpha dog in the house. She is also spoiled, stubborn, and I do believe she thinks that she owns me. That is until my husband comes home every other week and then she wants nothing to do with me !
She really is a sweet dog, just thinks she's the boss!
The next photo is of my oldest daughter " Ginny ". Ginny lives far away from her mother so unfortunately I had to swipe this photo from her.
I remember the day when she used to also think of me as her " You are just a thorn in my side " mom. Now she calls me nearly everyday and I am pretty sure that she appreciates her mom now.
Ginny has a birthday coming up at the end of the month. All I will say is that she is a year away from the dreaded (Gasp!) 30!
I hope she doesn't read this because I will hear about that for sure !
I miss her terribly and wish that we lived closer.
The next photo is of another special woman in my life. She is also one of my closest friends. She is my Daughter-in-law "Amy". She is a wonderful wife to my son " Frank ".
I think that she is beautiful, inside and out!
Please ignore the crazy looking woman next to her ! She often times just seems to appear as if she " Is just a thorn in your side " !
Last but not by any means least is my very sweet and beautiful 8 year old granddaughter " Sarah ".
What can I say about Sarah. She is just an amazing little girl and I love her so much!
And that is all of the girls and women in my life that make it so special.
I will have to do a post about the special " Two Men and a Boy " in my life soon.
Thanks for stopping by!
