Three generations of beautiful women in the kitchen - Paula, Michelle and Madison...
The boys like to wrestle. The boys are serious. They have a large mat and "wrestling dummies" - I think one was named "James". Really, what is St. Patrick's Day without a little wrestling? Bridger and Pryor showed us some of their moves...
I mean, have you ever seen a Kachina Doll trophy? I sure haven't. I love creativity. Thinking oustide the box is so exciting to me. You know who is always excited? Grandpa Fred.
I've just noticed I don't have a photo of Ray. Ray was the best man in our wedding. I might have one of those from the wedding, let me go check. Yes indeed - just so you can meet the whole family. Here is daddy Ray.
There is one more member of the Barker clan. The youngest little "steal your heart" girl with the perfect name. Meet..........Ruby.
Ruby is dancing with Andrew Henry. She told him he was her "prince". I couldn't agree more Ruby, I really couldn't.
Did you celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year?
I had a wonderfully homey st. Pat's with my own two little leprechaun's. Bray, who is an avid supporter of the color blue, made the crinkle-nose face all day as he had to tolerate wearing a green shirt - which he only agreed to in the hopes to avoid the dreaded pinch. Declan, who LOVES the color green, was overjoyed with his clothing selection! We watched Piggley Winks DVDs (an Irish kids show)and talked about shamrocks and pots of gold and St. Patrick and what it takes to be called a Saint. Not your traditional St. Patrick's Day celebration, I know, but still, we enjoyed ourselves quite a bit! (Even though Daddy couldn't be here with us).
The parade in our town was on 6th Mar. go figure! We were out of town so didn't see it. I did wear my green shirt and my Celtic earrings on St.Patrick's Day. In the evening I watched a special on Dublin's subterranean river etc. The Poddle River runs under the city. It was at one time on the same level as the Liffey and joined with it. The Vikings sailed along it from Dublin Bay to plunder and pillage surrounding towns and farms. Of course this was many, many moons ago. Anyway the program was very interesting.
