They Made a MOM Out of Me

Just a few photos of my little...and not so little ones...

Okay, these are definitely NOT in chronological order...I'm just not so good at the upload thing, yet. This is my Seeker Man, when he was 18 (ish), Scooter was his side-kick!

Scooter, one day old! February 1999

Scooter (3?) and Ginger (7?) our overgrown "sheltie"....she was so patient and calm with the children... Just NOT with fireworks...or thunderstorms...or smoke alarms....

Scooter and Tilly in the bike trailer...being used as a stroller. Spring of 2001
Tilly (aka Sweet Pea) looking too cute for words... Winter of 2005 ... (age four)

Scooter, aka Sweetie Pie...Just home from the hospital...a little yellow still, but that resolved...she sure loved to to be "bundled". That was the best time (I could still nap when she napped).

Scooter and Tilly helping to "paint" Christmas cookies. ( 2002)

Taking the girls out in the canoe on the Delaware Canal in Yardley, Pa. (Late Spring 2001)

Summer 2001...MacDougall & McGillicudhy in the pool. we figured out how to put warm water into the pool from the kitchen faucet...boy did we have fun in the yard that Summer!

Snorkie McTavish, one week old....such a cutie...He really did "snork" in his sleep! Winter 2005

Well, That was just the right way to spend the day before Mother's Day... It is amazing how quickly they grow and change, such fun to look through all the pictures. I think tomorrow will be "Home Movie Day" at our house! Blessings and Happy Mother's Day to all my Mom friends out there (family, friends and blog-buddies)

Return soon for the Ballet Recital Post...Three hour ballet version of Don Quixote tonight!
I just have to find the pictures....Hmmmm.


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. I really enjoyed reading your blog, too.

  2. What beautiful children! And those are amazing photos!! I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day.

    I'd love if you added me to your blogroll - that way I get to see you often and we can get to know each other better - thanks. Kellan

  3. Great pics! Happy Mother's Day!
    Thanks for checking out my blog too (remember I posted on the other Dawn's blog). I grew up in PA and I miss that area very much. It's nice to read about your adventures there :)

  4. What cute kids you have. I love the picture of the kids in the stroller. It is amazing how time flies!

  5. I hope you had a lovely Mother's day. Your children are beautiful.

  6. Oh, Elizabeth!! What beautiful children you have!!!
    Still plugging away at learning the Light Weigh stuff - I have to admit that I, too, am enjoying the fact that if you "fall off the wagon" you can just get right back on. I will keep you posted! I am hoping to bring my hubby down a notch or two in size. I find that the Catholic guilt comes quite in handy for this program! Have a fantastic day!

  7. Thanks for the greetings, all...and the compliments. It never ceases to amaze me how you can take two perfectly ordinary people and together they produce such sweet kids. I AM somewhat partial, of course.
    Love y'all. EJT

  8. Hi Elizabeth - Thanks for coming by today. I hope you had a good Mother's Day. See you soon - Kellan

  9. Wonderful pictures! Thanks for stopping by- we homeschooled before the move and I really miss it.

  10. Hello! I saw your comment on Shellie's blog (Little But Loud). Since I am from PA, I had to stop by...neighbor! We have probably passed each other at the mall.

    Your children a beautiful. I will be back again to visit.


  11. I can never figure out the email. When I click on it, nothing happens. Not just your page but everyones.
    We are off of Rt 1 behind Langhorne Square...Highland Park.
    Have fun to ladies bible study.

  12. Such darling children!
    I love the baby pictures.

  13. Lovely photos! Thanks for visiting my blog. I have several good friends who homeschool. I've seen how amazing their kids are and would love to homeschool my kids as well--at their house!

    Keep up the good work--I know it is WORK.

  14. I used to make burritos out of my babies too. Worked like a charm for getting them to sleep. Beautiful pictures.

    Thank you for adding me to your list, I'm truly honored! I'll be back!

  15. Isn't it amazing how fast kiddies grow up? I sound like my mother saying this, but it is SO true.

  16. Such sweet pictures. It's nice to see you in them, too.


Please leave me your thoughts.

I really do like to hear from you!
I'm just getting the hang of all this
"Bloggy" stuff, but I'll try to get back
to each of you when I can!
