Yes I feel left out!

So I'm doing a pretend Instagram post. :)

If I was on there myself, here's a bit of what you'd see (from the last week or so):

Scarlet meeting my dear friend's new baby Emily. ♥  She was so sweet with her!  It reminded me of when Steiger met Scarlet for the first time, and didn't want to share her with his grandmas.

Scarlet and baby Emily

Steiger falling asleep in his little chair after a big day playing and too many days in a row of staying up late waiting for Daddy to get home.


You'd probably see a close-up of his amazing eyelashes too.


You'd see what Scarlet could do with ONE hershey Kiss (that I gave her to distract her so I could finish the dishes)


And what she thinks when I put a youtube music video of a song she doesn't want to listen to at that particular moment.  (She loves to watch music videos on youtube, but has very particular taste... this is how I get dinner ready during this crazy busy season).


Not much working on quilts to photo in the moment sadly, but I am trying to get this one done for my God-sister's college graduation gift.

And one more... an oldie, but a goodie.  This photo is from the summer of 2008... This is my hubby, dad, sister-in-law's dad, and Grandpa Jim.  My grandpa passed away yesterday morning, so I went and found this picture after the kiddos and hubby were asleep.  ♥  We'll miss him, but I'm glad he lived a long and full life and is no longer suffering.  We love you Grandpa!

My sincerest sympathies on your loss. He must have really enjoyed many of Scarlett's antics and personality charms, what a doll! Jane

Oh it s hard to lose a grandparent but lovely that he got to be called 'great' in his lifetime and meet his great grandkids as well.

So sorry about your grandfather. I'm glad to see this peek into your life!! You are missed on Instagram.

I apparently don't do instagram right. I don't share my photos and don't follow anyone. ...nor do I hashtag. haha

Beth said...

My heart goes out to you and your family. It's clear he was loved--what a lovely legacy that is.

Carla said...

It's sad when we lose a member of our family. Nice you can reflect on a long life. Hug your little ones ; )

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandpa - but how wonderful that you have so many great memories of him! Love the pic of Scarlett and the chocolate kiss - it is amazing that it wasn't all over her clothes! At least she stores it where she can get to it later....

Jennifer said...

Sorry to hear about your Grandpa. Wishing prayers of healing!

Also don't feel bad about no being on Instagram. I don't have a smart phone either, yes, I too feel left out as well. But I also see it this way. Myspace was the first big craze, then it was Facebook and then Twitter. It seems where ever the kids go everyone else is soon to follow too. I've notice its usually the kids trying to get away from the adults. As much as it sucks something else will come along that is more everybody friendly!
