A LOT OF BLESSINGS TO SHARE.....

PRETTY IN PINK.... PINKNESS on my table makes us feel festive at this lovely and loving time of year... VALENTINE'S CELEBRATIO

I'm playing in THE FOURTEEN DAYS OF LOVE
with LIZ at BRAMBLEBERRY COTTAGE...
Today's theme...PRETTY IN PINK.
**
This is a granddaughter, BRYNNA, on 80's DAY at school...
...I just HAD to add her to my PRETTY IN PINK...
Isn't she just adorable....
OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN....eat your heart out !!
I LOVE all my grandchildren.....so so much!!
**
TO OUR BOY...
DAVID KEITH....
HAPPY 46TH BIRTHDAY, SWEETHEART
*
You have ALWAYS been our SPECIAL VALENTINE...
*
From the CUTEST little fella to a handsom man..*swelling heart, here
...with his Dad, Sister and Mom.
With his beautiful family on a cruise last year..
and with his sis, somewhere in Grand Cayman...
******************
"We all are so proud of the man you have become, David,
and we love you with all our hearts, forever and ever."
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!
****************************************************************
SOME MORE SNOW PICTURES....
*
Our last snow here was so wet and heavy...then the ice formed.
So many branches, all over town, were broken off trees. *
**
Frosty ice everywhere and just beautiful...
**
SWEET NOTHINGS COTTAGE
all blanketed in the glistening, white cold.......
*
LINKING WITH:
RHONDI for WHITE WEDNESDAY
*NOTE 2/2....the snow is gone for now and...I AM HAPPY!
*
.....while all the "big" people are inside, all huddled in front of WARMTH...
The adorable kids down the street were out building
MISS DOLLY......
such fun....
I think this is the reason most of us don't REALLY wanna grow up...
It's not NEARLY as much fun as being a kid.
**
The one thing I've always told my kids and grandkids...
"Don't ever forget how to play!"
...good advice for all of us, don't you think? :O)

Thanks for stopping in today..

Oh honey you are so brave! I would have to have earmuffs or a hat to be in that cold snow! LOL

The icy shots on the trees are gorgeous (fingers crossed they don't get any real damage).

The family is as I would expect...all smiles!! And is that young one dressed for the life of the 80's too cute or what!

Loved the advice...don't forget to play!
HUGS~Always

Happy Birthday to David Keith!!

What a lovely family you have BJ. I can feel the smiles in your words! :-)))

Have you ever had snow before? I am getting a big old geography lesson since I started blogging. I thought Texas was hot year round!!

We had snow again last night...it hasn't had a chance to melt since December. If the crocus are coming up, we wouldn't know it!! I have lived in Chicago all my life and don't think twice about the cold, wind or rain.

Have a great evening. And BTW, tomorrow is my b-day. Half a century 'young'!!

Good advice. That's some 'dolly' replica! That one tree almost looks like a sculpture, all bent down w/ice and snow. BRRRRR you're right - it looks cold in those photos!
