Beautiful photos of our Beautiful MN Family

My photo album has been uploaded for several days, but I simply haven’t had the time to post about the photos!  I probably don’t have time now, but Mama and Daddy are dozing and I’m trying to be quiet!  Shhhhhhh…

I’m not certain of the order of these, so I think I’ll just put them on and go from there.

Precious Baby Titus – Isn’t he a doll!

He is such a joy!  He loves his Big Sister so much.  He just listens to every word she says!

The kids had planned all week to have family photos done.  They finally got it together Thursday, just in time for a major storm!  The wind picked up, clouds began to roll in, and before the evening was over tornados had touched down not too terribly far from the cities.  I think we did get some sweet shots, though.

They are such a beautiful family!

I love this one!

Then Bo and Titus got together…

And Papa joined them for a shot.

These are more favorites of mine – Baseball is as much a part of Nathanael as breathing; he will love sharing that with Titus!

Arulai is a natural model – she handles the camera pointing at her with such poise!

Our little Lady

And she’s cool, too!

These shots are precious to me – the mother of my grandchildren!  The first shot is the sweetest thing – only a Mama can smile with a sobbing infant in her arms.

The sky got dark so much earlier than it had any other evening due to the storm, but they persevered and got a couple more.  This one is so sweet of the three of Em and the kids.

I mentioned in an earlier post that Arulai and I played croquet a bit before we left – this is one of her wickets.

We had such a fun time, even if it was only a few minutes.

Time with Papa before we go.  They sure enjoyed each other!

And Dannye Reigh got in some with the babies

And her sister!

And now we have to say goodbye – oh, so hard!

 MN Trip (40).jpg
But we can smile through it!

Then we dropped in on Nathanael at his 2nd workplace.

Dan said they had to take a real picture, then a fun one – couldn’t leave on a sad note!!

There are days being so far apart is really hard, but the Lord really does give grace.  I love my kids so much, and I am really proud of them all.  God be praised!

Back here on the homefront, all is pretty much back to normal.  Mama is doing pretty well for the condition she is in.  Her mind is definitely deteriorating, but we’re handling it pretty well.  Daddy is doing really well – I don’t see him digressing like I do Mama.  I tell him all the time that he is going to outlive all of us!

God bless your day!




About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

  1. Dad and Dan did such a great job with these! I was so disappointed that the weather turned so quickly. 😦 They did amazing though! We miss y’all. August can’t come soon enough, i have decided!

  2. What wonderful pictures!  I know you miss them!  It must be so hard to be away, but you are busy doing what God has called you to be doing!

    Beautiful indeed!  My favorites might be the ones of you and A.J. playing croquet, but they are all wonderful!
