Waiting for the moon...

This may be a long post, but I have so much to share. I consider my blog as an electronic journal. I love and cherish all of my followers, but in the end I only want to share my life. I walked around the yard yesterday afternoon waiting for the sun to set so I could take a picture of the Super Moon. I did see it but was unable to get a decent picture.  Justin opened the pool and started cleaning all of the leaves and debris...

Here he is working with the pump..

Sloan and Olivia were playing with their guns...



         Squirrel's nest........

These look like apple bossoms, but they are actually from an ornamental persimmon tree....


This is Mother's magnolia tree in bloom.....

My son, Craig, cleaned and planted pansies in Mother's flower beds yesterday. He is really turning into a responsible man.


This is a plant thingy that my sister bought Mother. I love it!

That is a stump that a real beaver gnawed behind the thingy, but a fake beaver! You can see the beaver in the first photo.
My sister. Tammy, reading the newspaper. She comes and give Mother a bath almost everyday.

Mother..........Can you believe she will be 82 years old in May?

I tried to get a picture of Tammy's 17 year old, Bobby, but he had to comb his hair first..

But then he posed....Looks just like his dad!

Back to my house... Look what a 12 year old does to my 'tree troll'....

Looks like the real thing, doesn't it? I have no idea what it is but it will not fall off!
The boys were practicing baseball when I got back to the house...This is Gavin pitching...

....and Sloan batting....

Then I started playing with my camera and changed to the Sepia tone...


Hope I didn't bore you. Have a great week!
