Bits of Happiness and Family

My sweet granddaughter Vivian visited her
 with her Momma, Daddy, Aunt Eve (pronounced Evie) and Uncle Dan. 

It was a beautiful day and they had lots of fun.

This is a bit of an action shot (above)
 but I wanted to show everyone the way she holds her thumbs
 - she always does this - 
her wee thumbs are almost always tucked inside her fingers.

 We think it is way cute.

(Also the baby sticks her tongue out a LOT.
 It is her way of saying she's hungry.)

And she is ALWAYS hungry, haha!


Here is the cute and fun outdoor-sy family.

(They could so easily live on a farm.)

Here are my three awesome & wonderful girls!

I just adore this pic of them together!

Today is Katie's birthday - she's the momma of wee Vivian.


Today is also Baby Bug's 3 month birthday, too!

This was taken last Wednesday
but today she is 3 months exactly.

There's that little tongue sticking out, kinda.

Happy Grandpa Mike in a very rare smiling pic:

As always, thank you for your visit!

Have a wonderful and blessed week -
our weather is just so perfect
 that I am out in it as much as possible!

I am so sorry that I have been MIA lately!

I haven't forgotten you, I promise!




  1. I have learned, in the 12+ years that I have been a Nana...there is just Nothing more precious than grands!!!! She's adorable! Blessings, Cindy xo

  2. Michele she is adorable as are your daughters. Some wonderful memories to treasure.

  3. She is so cute and growing. Isn't it a wonderful blessing to be a grandma!
    Happy Birthday to her mama.

  4. Beautiful family. Little Vivian is growing like a little weed and a cute one at that. Never too early to start the pumpkin patch tradition!

  5. Hi Michele and little Vivian is just simply adorable! Look how she is growing! Love that she holds her little thumbs! It certainly seems she has a personality! Happy birthday to your beautiful daughter. Enjoy all of the grandma stuff!
    Be a sweetie,

  6. Awww, so sweet! October is a busy birthday month for your family.

  7. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. So adorable and you all look so happy. I did get a laugh out of GrandMa Mike, is that really what he's called or did you mean GrandPa? ;) xox

    1. Thanks, Anne- I fixed it lol. OOPS!

      Nope, my hubs is every bit a man , haha.

  8. Such a cute little sweetie pie, Michele! I know you are enjoying every moment with her. Already going to the Pumpkin Patch---so sweet. Have a lovely autumn week. ♥

  9. How is little Vivian already three months old? You know what this means, of course. She'll be a year old before you get to blink twice. She does seem to be enjoying the pumpkin patch. So adorable, but then all your girls are.

  10. How precious she is. Love the thumbs tucked and the tongue out. She is such a pretty baby. Thanks for sharing all the pics of your family.
