Hop on in and meet the family.

Nicole is nine and as sweet and cute as ever. Liam loves her!

They had an Easter egg hunt. But the real fun didn't begin until later. Be sure to come back later this week to see what happened to the Bosnian man next door when he tried to intervene when all the grand kids went more wild than March hares. 

He meant well. He did. He really thought he was being helpful.

This is my son, Jason, and his wife, Jackie, and 15 year old, Nicholas, who has been battling with them to keep his long "la cross player" hair. He's varsity team captain and is only a freshman. He has a career in sports ahead of him.

 Liam's mommy, Ashley, 27, and daddy, Justin, brought Alex, who's still a bun in the oven.
Ashley is our oldest grandchild and has given us plenty of laugh lines.

Kyle, almost 24, is our second oldest. He and Gramps are best buds, always have been, always will be. Kyle has owned his own very profitable lawn care, tree trimming business, since he was sixteen. He graduated college, but he's really interested in farming, wants to raise dairy cows and buy a farm. I am sure he will one day. When he sets his mind to something...

He was searching on his phone, and someone asked if he was a on looking for a girlfriend. He joked, "No, I'm looking for a heifer."   One of the cousins piped up, "Same difference." Always a laugh-a-minute at our get togethers.
 Morgan, 17, is Kyle's sister, and this is Justin, her boyfriend. One more year of high school, and away she'll go, too. Her brother, George, 20 years old, is at college in New York.

Robin and George are their parents. Robin just flew in from NY from visiting their all star volley ball champ. She had to be at the airport at 3:00 a.m. She was ready to crash by the time she arrived at our house.

Madison, 19, with those stunning blue eyes and strawberry blonde ringlets has always been a heart stealer. A year of college under her belt, a part time job, and she's trying to decide which direction life leads her.

Sean, 18 in June, is Madison's brother. He'll be graduating high school in a few weeks, and is talking about a Navy career. He says he can retire in his 30's. He has every detail of his life, including his marriage to his long time girlfriend, a future scientist planned.

This is their mom, Bill's younger daughter, Michele. Her hubby, Joe, a firefighter, had to work.

This is my firstborn, Tracey, also known as Ashley's and Austin's super mama, and Liam's nana.

This is my son, Jason, Nicholas' and Nicole's super dad.

And this is my funny honey, who did NOT get in on the action yesterday when all of the kids went wild. Be sure to come back this week when I post incriminating evidence of the event.

For few weeks I have had trouble posting here. My lines just disappeared and I will try again!

How these kids have grown since I first found your blog! It always amazes me how much your grands look just like you. What a nice day and thanks for all the pictures.

So happy you were able to get together with your sweet family, Linda. Family is, indeed, a precious gift. By the way, I love your "new" wreath. So pretty! Susan

Linda--No, of course not. Silly Willy didn't get into the action because he probably STARTED the action up by stirring things up.\

Your kids, your grandkids, your great grandkid--they prove you and Bill have a good-looking and loving family. (Your 23-year old looks older than that. It must be because he's had his own business since he was 16 and is so darned mature.)

Maybe you need to let Trump in on what happened with your Bosnian neighbor. The President could send him back and make your neighborhood great again...

What a beautiful family you have. My favorite part of a holiday is spending time with loved ones. Oh, and eating, too!

It's good to see them all, to put faces with names. Time flies! Liam and Nicole and Nicholas have grown so much. I hope Nicholas gets to keep his long hair. He can put it in a man-bun if it gets hot this summer! There are so many other battles that could be waged with a teen. This is one I would let him win. (Says the mom whose college freshman now has hair down to his shoulders.)

You have a beautiful family! Made me smile. You are one proud Mama, Grandma and Great Grandma!

Whoops. Kyle looks older than 23 because he's 24. Well, he looks older than 24, too.

Wonderful family photos! I enjoyed seeing them and hearing about your family.
