Favorite Photos Friday

Although it's late on Friday night, it's still technically Friday. It was a busy day today. Anyway, here's my favorite photos for the week.

These are photographs I've been holding onto since Easter. I was unable to share them until the adoption of Girlie and G5 was final.

Daughter has a photographer friend who generously offered to make the trek to our house for a photo shoot.

This is our complete family.

We thought it would be pretty cool to take a family picture out in the field with AD's 1958 Massey-Ferguson tractor. It's powered with propane.

Dennis, the photographer, did an outstanding job capturing the cutest pictures of Girlie.

This one makes me wonder what she's thinking about.

The wicker rocker was one I bought when G1 was a little guy. It looked great in the tall grass.

Look how cute Girlie and G5 are sitting on the tractor. G5 really liked "steering" it

and did NOT want a female at the wheel!

Here's Girlie with her daddy walking back up to the house.

G3 brought G5 back laughing all the way.

Earlier G3 took his turn sitting on the tractor

and here's G4 sitting on the front.

G2 posed with his momma. Her hair used to be as blond as his.

That's it for this Friday.

I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend whatever your plans.

If you happen across anyone who has or is currently serving in the military, be sure to tell them how much they are appreciated.


  1. I love the pictures G... a nice bunch of "okies"! I really love the last one of the kiddo's walking away. It's just precious! Thanks for sharing them! I'm still in the process of getting mine together for the 'unveiling'! I've been driving back and forth every day and am really tired. Tomorrow is a day off for me!

    Have an awesome weekend! God Bless!

  2. Great pictures!!! I especially like the last one with the children walking away. I know you are proud of each and every one of them :o)

  5. You are so very blessed with a BEAUTIFUL family and congrats on the new additions, just adorable. LUV the tractor too, how funny that you and I both have tractors converted to propane.
