Today is Mary's 8th birthday. She is our 15th grandchild and 6th granddaughter.
Mary is a very important part of this very large family
And an even more important part of this smaller family.
Here is Mary 'through the years'.
Mary is a sweet, loving, helpful, and thoughtful 8-year-old and this year she celebrated her birthday at our house and shared it with her best friend/cousin Tessa whose birthday is only a couple of weeks away.
We're wishing her the happiest of birthdays and a year filled with good books to read, lots of nature to study and enjoy, and sweet times with her family and friends.
My passions include my family and taking and organizing pictures of them and everything else I think is picture-worthy. I have been married for 49 years to my best friend and with six of the world's best children, 20 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren, I've been blessed beyond measure. I'm fairly active, recently retired, trying to learn to golf, and hope to remain active enough and busy enough to make these sunset years some of the best years of my life.
