Some of you....

..... (like Laura) may be expecting some other pics....
Patience. Patience.
(Don't you just love when your mother lectures.)

I DO have this wonderful picture...
Isn't that gorgeous? That was a recent gift from Susan...Elizabeth's mother-in-law, and mother of one of my most favorite fellas in the whole world: Elizabeth's husband, John.

THANK YOU, SUSAN!! (for the ornament(s) AND for John!)

Here's the slice of pumpkin pie that you (Susan) gave me last year...

And this beautiful pumpkin, too...(You can't tell it, but in 'person' those 3 ornaments are all about the same size.)

Susan gave them to me for our holiday tree...

As you may (or may not) know I've been keeping our tree up the last few years... and decorating it for birthdays and other times of the year. It's fun... and it beats having to put that thing up after Christmas. !!!

Oh, here's a picture (taken in May, 2007) of Susan with Caroline, her oldest grandchild.I know what you're thinking: Susan looks too young to be a 'Mimi' to Caroline. Well, now she (Susan) has 5 grandchildren... all under three years of age! -- That will keep her young, .... or... well, old -- ha.)

Again, thanks, Susan, for making our tree really nice!!
(The next time I see you I'm going to take your picture.)

I WAS expecting other pictures. I saw you updated your blog and thought, "Yay! The pictures!" But that's okay . . . I guess I'll be patient . . .
