I’m Back


I almost forgot to post my annual Santa hat photo with the kids. I’ve taken photos of the kids in these Santa hats since the hats were way too big on them. They used to cooperate better, I must say.
Can’t ever get them all to smile at the same time these days!

In any case, I’M BACK! (Did you miss me?)

    Welcome back , yes you have been missed but just kept thinking “when she comes back she has to have some great stories to catch up on and of course pics of that beautiful baby Dumplin’ . Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with all the kids home and sending best wishes for the New Year to all at Sassafras Farm.

    YES YES YES YES :snoopy:

    :wave: Hey, Howdy! Good to see your young’uns.HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  5. alosyu says:

    Glad you took a few days off, even if I did miss reading your posts. I love these pictures, especially the second one. I can’t remember when I last saw Ross smiling, if ever. Wow !!! it changes him from good looking to really good looking. What is the matter with young people,my own included, that keeps them from smiling? It always adds to their appeal.

    I DID miss you. Peeked in every day, in fact, just to see if you’d been overcome by a mad urge to post. :woof:

    Did you guys get snow???

    OMG! ROSS is smiling!
    Beautiful smile! And I was wondering about this year’s version……the kids were probably hoping you would forget!


  8. MousE says:

    Yes I missed you! But I am so happy you had the holidays with your pretty family. Aw, just look at them, even the glower is cute. :snoopy:

    Happy New Year, Suzanne!

    Glad you’re back! Love the pics of the kids. Would you consider posting the earliest pic you have of them in the Santa hats? That would be a hoot!

  10. yvonnem says:

    I’ve NEVER saw a picture of Ross with that big of a smile, and on the other hand, Weston with no smile! Morgan seems to always smile. ๐Ÿ˜†

    YES, I MISSED YOU!!! Glad you were able to spend the holidays with your kids, and I hope you all enjoyed and had a great time and have a very Happy New Year as well! :snoopy: :snoopy:

  12. grandeb1956 says:

    Of course we did! Hope you enjoyed your holidays! :happyflower:

  13. djbrown says:

    Of course we missed you!!! And the first thing I noticed too was, boy does Ross look GREAT when he smiles! Weston on the other hand looks just like my 25 year old Tony. Ugh…

    As for the earlier photo, we have to get it scanned. ๐Ÿ˜‰ WELCOME BACK Deb

    Love the pic. Trying to get kids that age to smile for a pic is like herding cats… LOL! (Sigh) They grow so fast!

  18. holstein woman says:

    I’m so glad you are back and hope you ALL had a whooping good Christmas right down to the littlest. Happy New year! :reindeer:
    I think the second photo would have been different if Weston’s lady had been there, she seems to always bring out the smiles. But he did have a small one.

  19. Mandys says:

    I did miss you! I kept checking several times a day XD

  20. morningstar says:
