Spring Things


Our new little granddaughter Rebekah Christine was born on February 10, 2010. We didn't get to see her until April since Brent's family were living in Kentucky at the time. They are back in Missouri now. This picture was taken of Rebekah with her brothers Moses and Brigham when she was just a few days old.

Baby Bekah, about 2 months old, but refusing to smile.

Brigham holding Bekah.
The first weekend in May we went to Pella, Iowa with our friends the Burchs, Frames and Jacksons to the Tulip Festival. There were severe thunderstorms and hail the night before so most of the tulips had been beaten down. The temperature also turned very cold so we had to go shop at Walmart to get warmer clothes to wear. I don't want you think we would wear some of these clothes on purpose. Bill loved his quilted lumberjack shirt he got for $5.00 but I don't know if I will ever allow him to wear it in public again. In this picture are Jim Burch, Bill, Tom Frame and Dave Jackson.
The girls, looking equally cute. Sue Frame, Sandy, Linda Burch and Shirley Jackson.
Shirley and I trying on the little dutch hats. We had also been rained on that day which didn't help with the look.
Bill and Dave trying on the dutch boy hats.
Sandy with the wooden shoes.
Bill with the dutch bologna.
The whole group with some tulips that actually survived the storms.
Bill at home with Sadie, Abby, Hannah and Moses - doing what he does best - playing horsey.
Moses fell asleep with his computer. They sure do start young.
Moses and Brigham. Moses turned 2 on June 5th. Brigham is 3 1/2.
Linda and Don were here for Memorial Day. We had a fun day decorating the graves and going out to eat at 54th Street Grill. Linda, Mother, Sandy, Abby, Hannah and Sadie at Daddy's grave.
Linda and Don at Grandparent's Smith grave.
A cemetery worker volunteered to transport mother around the cemetery. It was a highlight for the girls as well. They want to buy a golf cart now. The rest of us had to walk.
The girls at great grandma's house in some new clothes.
Four pretty granddaughters - ready for church.
