Mountain Monday

This Monday is no different than the many preceding Mountain Mondays. Beeeyooouu-tea-full mountains, silly pets and gorgeous grand daughters. Sit tight, the names might be the same, but the pictures, them, they are always a chang'n!

Mountains first, so you can have a chance to take extreme cuteness precautions.




The last picture is my favorite because you can see winter clinging in the lee of the mountains, shrinking away from the encroaching fingers of spring.

I tortured the dog some!


Top view!


He might not much like the picture taking process, but he likes the treats after!

This next picture is a bridge picture


Bridging the cute animals, with the cute grand children.

The Pea? She found some swim wear she INSISTED she try on. Immediately. And yes, she is naked. She is always naked. The Princess dresses her, many times a day. The Pea is an expert disrober. I did some editing. (In case you can't tell!)


She told me, now I have glasses like you Bam-maw!


Oh goodness, the June Bug has been especially darling lately. Enjoy!






Guess who is crawling on all fours and has her first tooth???



Sometimes Mountain Monday is nothing more than an exercise in gratitude.


Yesterday was Oldest Son's birthday, I can't believe how old he is and he is my THIRD kid, not my first. My mother tells me I will be very traumatized the day my youngest turns 30. Today is my favorite son-in-law's birthday!
Remember the day they met? Wow. And in April, they will have been married a year.
Happy Birthday Brown Boy. Thank you for making my daughter so happy and for being a part of our family. Our life is richer for knowing you and for all you bring to our family.

The June Bug is too cute for words.

The mountains are inspiring...the very best thing about Mondays!

And the poor, poor puppy.

Hah. Eliza spotted Pea and said, "Wassat girl wearin?" She particularly liked the photoshopped-on underpants. And pictures of the dog are guaranteed to make me snort because of that patient/bemused/put-upon expression that seems to be his default.
Go Junebug with the crawling and teething!

Great bridges.
I kind of think that it looked like a bridge of bones myself :)

VERY cute grandkids.

Jenny said...

Thanks for letting me in on your blessings today Jo.

Has it really been a year? WOW! Congrats!

Heidi said...

I think I love the drawn on undies most of all.

Just found your blog--hope you don't mind!

I love checking out your mountain monday pictures. In the photoshopped picture, I didn't notice it was edited at first. I just thought her swimming suit matched her flippers very well ;) Great pictures!

Jill said...

Those grandbabies are just too cute!

I wish I could teach my kids to be as patient and obedient as your dog.

Jessica G. said...

Ooooo, baby! Thanks for the pictures of your babies...I needed a does of cuteness today.

What a nice post Jo. You have such a lovely family.

p.s. Your editing of the Pea's picture? Hilarious.
