Joyful July occasions...

...include celebrating the births of our older daughter (Girly~Twirly), my dad, my hubby's younger sister, and my brother's daughter.

 Joining with: Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday's "J".

Wish that we were able to celebrate with each of them in person...but we all live in different states!

Here is a photo of our Girly~Twirly at her first birthday...in New Mexico.


 Here are some current ones when we were able to be together...
The first photo is their family's first Easter with their little "Bunny". We were able to spend time with them and meet, hold and love our little grandbaby girl. The second is with "Papa", Bunny and Girly~Twirly taking a photo of "Papa" and Bunny during our visit.

The following month, in May, the other photos were at the wedding of our younger daughter, Girly~Whirly, in May....in Lexington, Kentucky.

My dad's first birthday photo...in Wisconsin...
and then a couple most current photos from Girly~Whirly & Dr. Amazing's wedding in May. He is holding his great grandbaby (our other daughter's little one, aka "Bunny") at the rehearsal dinner. And then one of him at the wedding.

This is my hubby's "baby" sister "D". She was born on July 4th (my mother-in-law had my hubby on Christmas day :o). When she was little, "D" thought the fireworks display over the beach and ocean was all to celebrate her birthday :o)


And our other July Birthday is of my "baby" brother's cutie!  These were photos taken during their Wisconsin trip to visit my sister-in-law's family and my dad. My brother is still active duty Navy and they live in Washington. My dad was so happy they were able to drive up to his place for a little while and he had fun with them all.

Here are some other art to commemorate some births. (The color images show a little darker, since I took photos of those ones, since my scanner will not scan color).

Little lamb was drawn from a photo of a cute stuffed lamb. And the lamb is drawn entirely with this little cutie's first name: HARLOW




This chunky firetruck was drawn entirely with this little guy's first name: ETHAN

This girly, curly, swirly butterfly was drawn for this baby doll's using her first name: MOREAYA



This butterfly was drawn from the nursery bedding of this little sweetie and drawn entirely with her name: PAYTON


This little baby bird was drawn for this little chickadee using her first name: LILLIAN



And announcing: my etsy shop is having a 10% off of any birth info style artwork ordered during the last week in August and the first week in September.

Thank you to all those that have thought of the Personalized Sketches as baby shower gifts, baby gifts, first birthday gifts, etc! I have quite a lot of baby ones still yet to share...lots of baby girls lately!

 & thank you all for stopping by!

Your artistic heart is clearly present throughout your blog! You love your family and I admire you for that! I love writing about the phmaily! Our baby will be heading off to college in Kansas. Sigh!

Our youngest daughter Who girl was born one day before the 4th of July! She too thought all that hoopla was for her only and we let her have all the glory! LOL!

Lovely photos and a blessing for you to have so much to share here!

Have a delightful weekend and Hugs from Colorado from me to you!

It's a blessing to have family with whom you can celebrate, even if the celebrations are remote. You have a lovely family...one that extends in every direction!

Thanks for stopping by. It's always nice to receive your warm comments! Hope you have a wonderful week!

So many lovely reasons to celebrate! July is a great month for birthdays, but we don't have a single one in our family - all spring, fall and winter babies!

You have a beautiful family. Glad you were able to get together for some things. Beautiful art work too.

What a month of birthday blessings!!!!

And I know I've told you before, but I am so in awe of your God-given artistic talent! Such beautiful work!

Grandma Becky said...

love the photos. Thanks for sharing. My friend, Marge, was born on flag day! She was WWII Coast Guard SPAR. She recently died and I was able to travel down to funeral then a couple weeks later, was at Willamette National Cemetery when her cremains were committed. Was able to do a PGR mission for her. I think I blogged that recently. Marge was a dear lady who loved the Lord as well. So we know where she is. I will contact you soon about a drawing, for our anniversary. Have a great weekend!
