A Family Snapshot



L to R: Mark (31), moi, Amy (34), Nicholas (6-1/2), and Donica

This doesn't happen very often so grab it while you have it! Someone on my photoblog site requested that I post a family pic after our mini-family Christmas celebration on Saturday. They'll get it tomorrow; you'll get it first today! :)

Anyway, most of you already know us by now (my 2 children, grandson and domestic partner). Oh yes, don't forget the camera, which took the pic and is very much a part of our family! I'll have to come up with a good name for her, I see.

We have 2 days now to get ready for our flight from Atlanta to Michigan for a few days at the Hart Family Cottage. All of us, including Dennis (Amy's beau) will fly together on Thursday (except for Nicholas, who will be with his dad). Dennis flies in today from LA.

But I'll say Good-Bye on Thursday before we leave.... :)

In the meantime, I hope you're all recuperating from the Christmas hubbub.

  1. Rare and beautiful! I'd love a copy of this one. Only two more days!! I only wish Nicholas would be there too. :(

  2. Yes, Ruth--too bad Nicholas can't be with us. His time is always over the July 4th weekend. But once a year really isn't enough. Hmmm. We'll have to work on that.

    Thanks for your comment on the pic. Maybe we'll bring up a copy for the fridge. :)

    Lisa: You're a sweetheart. Thanks.

  9. I love family portraits and yours is wonderful! You all look so happy and relaxed. Amy and Nicholas have the same smile. :)
    Can't do a family portrait on my blog, I have many shy family members. Altho they can't escape the family website! (Insert evil grin here).

  10. Thanks, dear, dear Mad. I understand about the shyness factor--or the security factor. Trust me. Donica always says I'm much more trusting than she is.

    So glad you had your own blessed Christmas in San Fran...and now in your hideaway with Jimmy. Enjoy!

  11. Ohh yes, Christmas time is family gathering time and this picture was so lovely - thanks for sharing!

    Your cam: Why don't you call 'her' Miss Memoryhook?

    Have a safe journey to the cottage. I'm looking forward to reading about the holiday!

  13. Renny: You of all people know about family time! And calling my camera Miss Memoryhook is a great idea! :) Thanks for the suggestion.

    DW: Thanks, as always, for your comment! And you will definitely hear about the holiday, to be sure--after the 1st!

  14. Wow! This is a cool picture! I love those family portraits!

    Recuperating? It's Wednesday and I just begin too... I'm taking care of my brother's dog (and house, and car, and...), so I'm not at my apartment, not at my pc... It's a little bit more difficult to recuperate, but I will... untill New Year's day... :O)
