I admit, we call her a drama queen…
… and we don’t always say it like it’s a good thing.
But if there is one thing that brings the whole room joy…
…(well except maybe her cousin on the left there)…
… it’s a drama queen opening her gifts.
Happy seventh birthday to our favorite drama queen!
“Well Granny,” asks Uncle Jim, “after 94 years, what have you learned?”
“It’s hard work to get to be 94 years old.”
Happy Birthday Granny!
You make all that hard work look good.
…placating smile, too long bangs, events from the swim meet on her arm, dressed inappropriate to the weather and she’s got a pigeon on the table…
..Yup! That’s our Clara!
Happy birthday to our favorite pigeon lover!
A returning home ritual.
A pile of photos capturing moments from the week.
A collection of simple, special, extraordinary moments.
Moments I want to pause, savor and remember.
Collecting the sap
Turk soaking up the sun
Tyler in the steam of the sugar shack
A little sapsucker
fixing his boot
a dubious cast of characters
46 Grandma Mary, are you sure about that?
Hammerschlagen- start em young!
Eleven years calls for a penguin party!
Happy birthday Ivy!
There is no one who makes better happy faces than this girl.
Happy sixth birthday Jane!
