Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Saturday Snapshot

 Saturday Snapshot (originally hosted by At Home with Books) is now hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads. To participate in this meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
 So many family changes lately! Good changes - graduations, new apartments, new jobs - but it's still making me sentimental. My last boy moved out yesterday so my nest is empty. For now. They've moved in and out a few times and it's been fine with us. (I did it twice to my mom!) Two sons live in town and have added to our family. One son lives two hours away and comes home most weekends. I'm so proud of all of them and I'm a very lucky mom. Please indulge me as I reminisce.
Little Wright Brothers
We didn't get to Kmart photo studio before closing time so I made them pose in the back yard
Playing in the mud
Soccer games
Family photo in the yard
Tried to pose for Christmas card photo but dogs wouldn't cooperate and boys wouldn't smile. Epic fail!
Traditional first day of school photo. They were pissed but I wouldn't let them leave until they did it!
Oldest boy's first day of college. I cried when when each boy got a turn

  1. I can see why you're sentimental. What a great looking crew!

    1. Thank you! I was feeling sappy but I am a proud mom!

  3. What a lovely family! You are blessed!

    1. Thank you! I count my blessings every day. :)

  4. What wonderful reminiscences! I particularly like the muddy photo- such a great boy photo, and the one where they all look seriously annoyed at having their first day photo taken- we have the same argument at my house- but I just have one boy- it's worth it though to have those photo memories- even if they do look grumpy at the time.

    1. We have many typical boy photos over the years and I treasure them all! It was hard to decide what to post and I know there are too many but it was still fun. Luckily none of my sons read this or they would kill me for sharing so much. Too bad - I'm a mom and that's what I do! Enjoy your boy!

  5. Love the mud pic! Thanks for sharing, Debbie, these are great.

  6. So, so sweet! I loved seeing your boys grow up! You are lucky that they live so close (2 hours isn't so bad. I love just over that from my family). Thanks for sharing :)
