Two Beauties

Happy Monday to you! As promised I have some photos to share from our birthday celebration on Saturday. Here are our two birthday girls, sisters just two years apart. They are such wonderful girls-Miss S on the left is now 10, Miss M on the right is 8 tomorrow. The are incredible helpers, a must in a big family,  also sweet, intelligent, thoughtful-well you get my drift. I just can't say enough about what wonderful girls, daughters, sisters, cousins and granddaughters they are. 
Two cousins and close friends. Many years ago, I had friends who were twins and their children all acted like they were one big family; I didn't understand it then, but sure do now.
The girls each got some great gifts! They were so thankful for all of the thought that went into their presents.
Little Man decided he was a ninja warrior and was twirling the sticks like he was doing martial arts. So cute. His language is exploding now and it is fun to have to telling us that he wants to go in our car with us and come home to Nana and Papa's. We are blessed beyond measure.
 Today I asked a friend if she wanted to go check out some shoes with me that were recommended for our trip to Ireland; she was in and we had fun looking at all sorts of different shoes. I will say that the gal who recommended Naot brand shoes said they were like walking in your slippers, but they are expensive. I whole heartily agree with how wonderfully comfortable they are, but the price is way too high for me. Well maybe, I might get a pair yet. I tried on every other brand that was comparable, but none were are comfy as the Naots. Don't know if there are any travelers out there, but if you are planning on walking a lot, you might want to check out this brand.
I've walked this morning and will ride later on, but for now I'm heading out to the sunshine to read an ebook.  I hope you had a great weekend!


  1. Your are truly blessed. The children are beauties! Haven't heard of those shoes, I will have to check them out.

  2. Beautiful children - all of them. Our human sister got Mom a birthday gift this year - it is a wooden display that says "Grandma's house - Where cousins go to become best friends:.

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  3. Happy Birthday to the Girls! My 62nd b'day was Sat and celebrated by being at my nephew's wedding.

  4. Happy Birthday to your wonderful Granddaughters! And Little Man is really growing up. What fun!

  5. I'm always amazed and over joyed when my grands get together with my sister's grands, they love each other so much and play so well together! It reminds me of when our kids did/and still do hang out together and when we used to hang out with our cousins! Having family live close by each other is so very special! Happy Birthday to your two beauties! Blessings, Cindy xoxo

  6. Lovely seeing the girls and hearing about how lovely they are. What fun getting ready for your trip. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Those kids are so cute, and that little blonde braid is beautiful......Happy Birthday to the kids, we know you are also a great grandma!!! stella rose

  8. Beautiful and sweet little girls; indeed God has blessed your family. So happy for you!
    I've never heard of Naot shoes but I walk comfortably in Asics Nimbus, also like Naturalizer Malva and Soft Walk and Clarks. Best wishes, and enjoy Ireland, the land of 40 shades of green (truly, when you look down over Ireland from the plane, it looks like a patchwork quilt with many shades of green!)
