Malcolm...Stephen and Katie, too :)

This past weekend the Morton Household took Grandma R. on a trip to see Stephen, Katie, and Malcolm!

Malcolm meeting his Great-Grandma R.

He charms us all with his smiles!

Grandma and Katie in their jean jackets

Malcolm with his Pop-pum

Busy as a bee making cherry pie

Conked out in Daddy's arms

Folding laundry is fun when done with others!

How many people does it take to wash a [broken] window? :)

 Mayhem is everywhere :D

More window-washing

We were so blessed to have nice weather the whole weekend, and took advantage of it by leaf raking

Malcolm and his Great-Grandma enjoying the warm weather

I love this hat on him!

Talking with Grandmum

Our muscle man (I'm not sure why, but Blogger uploaded this picture crooked and I can't flip it!)

Duets are such fun!


Bundled up in his shark towel

Four Generations

Us with Grandma and Malcolm

Mr. Mouring enjoying his Grandson

Daddy and Tim

Visiting with the Mourings and Friends
Grandma brought along some old family pictures...priceless!

The Mourings, Jr.

"awww, Mom, did you have to give me a kiss?" :)

Relaxing on the Lord's Day


Sometimes it's fun to see the process of a photo shoot

Thank you, Lord, for making me an Auntie!

So many...






Katie is such a good mommy

Cooking with a sister is ten times more fun than cooking alone! (especially when cooking Mrs. D.'s whole wheat walnut pancakes ;D)


Now that's what I call a pancake spatula!
Glassy eyes :)
Kiss the cook!

One last picture with Great-Grandma R. before heading back home! :(

Cheeri-o for now,

Random Picture(s) of The Week

After realizing that I haven't done any Random Picture of The Week posts on our new blog yet, I decided it was high time to do so.....although I cheated and posted two pictures in this post. I just couldn't resist! We have here my two favorite pictures from this past weekend of my newest nephew! He is such a handsome little fella. More pictures of him and our recent visit to his house coming soon, Lord willing!

It was such a pleasure to host the M. family in our home recently! Although short, it was a fun visit. There are not as many pictures as I would have liked, but isn't that always the case? :)

Looking at familiy pictures

C. also looking at photo books

Gathered 'round the kitchen island

The following day, they so sweetly helped us rake not only our yard, but also our pond! (the pond is very hard to rake!)

In case anyone was wondering, that is a lawn sweeper on the back of the tractor


Poor I., it looks like he had had too much raking :D

Daddy Dearest                                                Cute R.

The lovely Moms

S. hauling sticks

(Many thanks to Miss A. for the raking pictures!)

For lunch we roasted hot dogs

"Not the camera!"  :D (I think that might be A.'s animal cup on the table.......well, maybe not :)


She liked her pink pig cup :)

Visiting around the campfire

Daddy used a frisbee for a shield while J. fought with a play battle axe :D

Some of the kids helped me feed the neighbor's cat...thanks for your help!

A game of Apples to Apples

D. had some college work to do

Daddy, Mr. A., and Miss A.

Mrs. M. with her partner and Mumzie with her partner

D. was done with his homework...Yay!

One of my teammates for the game Worst Case Scenario.

Our team was The Zebra's (and we were second place!)

C. all streched out and comfy

Daddy reading everyone a bedtime story....."Godfrey Gordon Gustavus Gore"

The adults and older kids finished off the night with more visiting, then we all went to church the following day. After church they left for home. Thanks for visiting, M. family!
Verse of the day taken from my Bible reading several days ago: "And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed." Mark 1:35

Until next time,
