Happy Mother’s Day

What a beautiful day we are having in Montana—a perfect Mother’s Day.  I’m just going to let these photos tell our story—this first one is my sweet Mom and her husband Chuck. 


CCI05082016_0001Mom and her favorite granddaughter (her only granddaughter! Smile)  This photo was taken in 1992, pre-Michael, up on the Beartooth Highway.

I sure miss my Mom and hope she had a wonderful day spent with the rest of our family!  Saturday night we enjoyed a pre-Mother’s Day dinner at Lonn’s.  I never had children of my own but I am blessed to have Michael’s children and grandchildren treat me as if I were their own.

Little Lora Elizabeth can now say, “Mimi!”  and as the photos show, she is full of herself at 17 months!!  Brooks Michael is doing what babies do best—eat, sleep, poop, repeat—he’s adorable!

Happy Mother’s Day!!


  1. Your photos are what Mother's Day is all about! Family!

  2. Wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing. I see Michael was born with a hat on :-)))

  3. A photos story is the best:) Great photos! Brooks Michael is so mature looking. Love all that beautiful black hair:) Lora Elizabeth is at a perfect age for all that cuteness:) I like Jodee's comment about Michael and the hat...too funny!!
