Grand Children

A blog which I have been reading for a couple of years, Kelly's Korner, often has a "Show Us Your Life Friday."  I've never posted there, but this week is "show us your grandkids."  Of course I have to show mine! 

Most are group pictures of the first seven grandchildren, who were born within five years.  Five years later we had an eighth grandbaby, and we have another one due June 1.  Some are on holidays, and others are during our yearly family vacation at Gulf Shores, AL.

  1. You have a beautiful family! I love the beach pictures.

    1. Thank you Leslie! We look forward to the beach vacation every year, so all the grand children can be together for a week.

  2. Oh my...what a beautiful bunch of children! You must be so proud! Love how they are all dressed. So nice to meet you...♥

    1. Thanks, Susan! I am proud of them and enjoy dressing them alike (though the oldest are starting to protest). Nice to meet you, too.

  3. Maggie... you are BLESSED! Beautiful beautiful grandchildren!

    1. Thank you, Diana. I realize how blessed I am.

  4. I love how you get them all to match. Where do you get all the different sizes to match. My family thinks I'm crazy for trying to get them all the same. LOL

    1. Thank you. My family thinks I'm crazy, too. I used to buy at Strasburg (they would have great sales). The white dresses in the first picture, the flower girl dresses and light blue smocked ones are from there, but they went out of business. I buy some on Zulily and Orient Express, and I make some, too, like the Christmas tree smocked dresses and the pink outfits they're wearing at the beach. I also shop E-Bay a lot.
