nine is fine...

as promised

here is
my grandma-bragging post
(most of these were taken last fall at the barn shoot)

I call these little ones
the B boys
they are full of fun and sparkle

always three times the fun here

such a great bunch
it is so fun  to watch them interact with each other
and yet see them be such individuals

the triplet boys

 my lone grand-daughter
I do hope she will like tea...parties

and these are the
big boys

those eyes 
they melt me everytime

our newest little one
so sweet

Grandpa is thrilled
He has  his football team

They all live within 20 minutes
Grandma's House.

I am blessed

Miss Rene,
that is a beautiful picture...all those little ones crowded around you. Sure makes me think of the good old days. Our grandkids were always close to us, and they all were close to the same age, all little at once..when one wanted Grandma, they all wanted Grandma.
You are blessed indeed, though you have seen so much heartbreak.
The little one is simply gorgeous.
see ya later.

What a phenomenal family! I grew up in a large family, and would not have it any other way, except maybe to have been on a farm instead of town. Thanks for sharing your family and your creativity!

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh Rene, what beautiful grandchildren! They are all so sweet and the pictures are amazing! I'm sure your granddaughter will enjoy tea times with Grandma just to get away from the boys! You are indeed blessed to have them so nearby too. Lovely post today. Blessings, Pamela

You are blessed abundantly! What a beautiful bunch of grandbabies you have! xoxo

Gail at Gail-Friends said...

Yes, you surely are blessed...and they are all beautiful. I hope your little girl will like tea parties, too. I'm sure she makes all of those boys "step around".

With two daughters in their 30's, I don't think I'll ever make it to 9, but I treasure my one grandson. I never knew you could love your grandchildren just as much as your children until he came along 16 months ago.

Blessings to you all

They are all so precious!

Jill Farris said...

I found your blog on Home Living (lady Lydia's blog). Wow, what beautiful children and what amazing pictures. You look like such happy grandparents!

How many families do the children represent?

We have eight children ages 5 to marriages/grandchildren yet! Can't wait!

I know they will have a happy life growing up together close to such wonderful grandparents

What a beautiful family you are! I love the photos and the children are adorable! I have so many grands I don't know if they will ever be in the same place at the same time! Congratulations on having such a wonderful family and for knowing how blessed you are!

FredaB said...

the pics of your grandchildren are wonderful. Beautiful and healthy looking children. I also only have 1 grandaughter and 5 boys and she just had her 16th. birthday last week. Seems like only yesterday when she was litle like them. Even with all the boy cousins she is a very girlie girl but is also more athletic then all the boys together. Go figure.

Hugs to you all
