OT: POTD: This old tree

givelittle_getlots(Zone 8 TX)November 30, 2009

Good morning

I have to admit, the times with family the last week was so exceptional, fun and lol, time consuming, that I did not know if I was coming or going. BUT all I could think about was the NOW AND HERE.

No TV, no Internet. Just plain old family fun! From POTD for November 09

This tree, one of five, I call the MOTHER tree. ME. Then there is a dad tree and our three kids have an Oak tree also.

Now it holds our grandkids and I am so thankful for having had them all enjoy this old tree. As we enjoyed our grandkids along with the parents.

Now you got me back and life brings back the joy I have with coming here.

Eager to read the posts and events, Pictures and stories I missed from my friend's lives :-)

Hoping that like for example Karyn my friend, who loves to throw big get togethers...Oh I should have ask you for some advice lol...how the holidays were for you or other big familie *reunions*

For us it was the 1st reunion of our 3 children in 13 years that we were all together at once.

So let me go and catch up a bit before the clean up begins and I get the house back to a 2 occupant household.

Wishing that this day finds all my GW buddies as well off as can be.

Kristy, especially you now that I know you had a horrible experience coming home yesterday. Glad you are safe and it ended without harm. That was one message I managed to read before I looked at the hundreds of photo's we took over the holidays and I had time this morning to do so for the 1st time.

What a perfect tree to play on and a great photo. It looks like it could be a Rockwell painting. It sounds like you had a wonderful holiday.

Our household was back to normal late yesterday afternoon but I can't say it's any quieter with the 5 of us then it was with 15! lol It was a nice holiday and I was glad to be able to do it this year.

Good morning all. Lucy, did you get up on that tree as well? I might have tried it, but then would have needed help getting down, LOL! What a precious picture of your GKs especially with the oldest boy holding on to her hand for safety reasons. We had a fantastic Thanksgiving. I had 11 here and everyone enjoyed the good food and company!

Good Morning all .
Lucy glad you are back. I was missing your POTD posts. The GK are so adorable. Seeing them make me want to go and climb an old oak tree I have next to the fence. That one is my tree. It's not too high and I can climb on it. Until few month ago I use to climb on it at about 5 ft high and watch people passing on the street. It makes you feel young again and forget everything for a few moments. No, I can not do it now.

Glad that everybody had a great Thanksgiving day.

OMG "The Giving Tree" is one of my favorite books of all time. I still tear up when I read it. Shel Silverstein was a genius.
