Front porch at the cabin......Happy 17th Birthday to Erin and Elisabeth



Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses is `having a porch party today and has links on her blog to all those who wish to share their porches...and it's Rhondi's birthday....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!



These are pictures of our cabin porch in the mountains......when all fourteen of our family are here together we make many memories.....we have a few more rocking chairs inside the cabin and red printed cushions for each. Adults usually claim one before the children can.... Their are two openings at the steps and lattice gates that slip down into each opening. It has been like a big play pen for all eight grandchildren....a kiddie pool is placed on the deck end for the toddlers while the older ones play in the creek in front of the cabin........

Today should be declared a National Holiday.....it's Erin and Elisabeth's 17th birthday.....seems like yesterday that the twins were born.....so tiny yet so perfect......what a blessing they've been to us....'the girls' as they are always referred to and I are going out for lunch and a shopping trip. What more could a grandmother or in my case, a Mam, ask for? If you have time, please drop by their blogs to wish them a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Dear Friend Betty.....

What joy!!! To see your pictures that hold such dear sweet memories of just a few days ago when we sat with you and Edward on this very porch at your cabin in the mountains..... That first morning John and I sat in your rocking chairs at 4 am, watching the dawn break and listening to the chorus of birdsong..... Such a memorable time that will stay in our hearts for ever.

Happy birthday to Dear Erin & Elizabeth enjoy your morning birthday shopping with Mam... I’ve left you a special greeting on your blogs under your last postings.

Happy birthday to Rhondi too..... I’m just on over to check out your blog.

Joy and blessings to all on this day. Marion

Happy Birthday to the twins, Elizabeth and Erin. Erin did a nice job designing your header. Very nice. I love the porch to your cabin in the mountains. I'll bet it is so peaceful there. It looks like there are a lot of trees around. Oh, how nice you got to meet and visit with your blogging friend and her husband.
