A BUSY SUMMER AND JULY IS ON THE RUN

This morning I helped with money counting at the church since one of the collection counter was away on vacation. I was filling the deposit book and I asked George, what was the date. He said the 19th.  I wrote the 19th on the deposit slip. After  I got in the car, I kind of panicked and I said accusingly "You said today was the 19! It can't be...
In disbelief, I had to check the date on my cell phone and it was July 19.  Oh WOW. Where has the time gone?. I'm going crazy...

Here are some family photos of when Christine and her little family were here.



Christine  always brings us fresh PEI lobster and here is Daniel with his spaghetti face.


George, my dusty old farmer coming right from the field is getting his lobster ready for a sandwich with his trusty Hellman Mayonnaise... At my house it's pretty relaxed. No fancy table setting. It's more like camping style. With a bunch of little ones underfoot, it's the best I can do...



 That's my plate. Never mind the butter. Pass the beer and I'm good to go. Look at that big sucker they put on my plate.




Daniel playing with his cousin Cypress.


Daniel and Cypress.


After supper, everyone is full and happy and it's story time with the kids.



Poor Daniel, not feeling well. He's got a tummy upset and is sleeping it off.


I've been caught barefoot and sitting down, sporting my huge bunions. So barefoot is comfortable.


My daughter Jackie and her daughter Nicole lazing around on the love seat posing for the camera.


Joe's birthday caught us off guard. No cake but lots of Nachoes, ( sorry, no pictures ) ice cream sandwiches and James started us off on singing Happy Birthday Daddy and everyone joined in. (Sorry no picture of the singing either). I was just too busy singing.


Grandsons Liam on the left and Simon on the right raising toast of ice cream sandwiches to Joe. 


Mira on the left, Nicole, Jackie, Christine and Daniel.


Even my old man George joined in the happy birthday celebration


James wanted to place the box of straws as high as he could on the counter  on top of something and the box tipped and those straws went all over the floor. They were put into the garbage.
I really enjoyed having the family over and after they left it was kind of quiet.

Just before the car left for the long trip back  to Ottawa, James haulers to me as I stood on the door step, "Mamoo I'll miss you. You're the Best".... How about that for a little 4 year old boy.  
When they got home, he Skyped me. 

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I so much appreciate your visit.
Have a safe summer
