Pictures

Since the old picture thread is gotten buried and is quite a few years old, and I have some new pictures I would like to share, I thought I would start a new one. I have more, but here are a few. The top one is my biracial son and my biracial grandson (his nephew). Next is my grandson with his parents. His dad is my youngest son. Then, my grandson by himself, followed by one of him along with my granddaughter (his cousin). Lastly, two of my granddaughter, who is 1/4 AA and 3/4 CC. While people don't usually notice that she isn't just white, at first, she has a year-round tan. Her eyes are quite unique. They are almost as dark a brown as her dad's but it the light shines on them, they have kind of an auburn cast to the. Of course, I think they are the two cutest kids in the world, and am very excited to see what her new baby brother who is due in June is going to look like!

I sure hope to see some pictures of everyone else's kids!

PS
Just realize how tiny these are posting and I don't know why. Any suggestions?

We just got back from our mini spring break vacation. This was our 9yo (and 3.5yo) first time in a cave. Trey wasn't to sure about going into a cave at first but seemed to enjoy it.

Good to see more pics. Here's our little guy. Three and a half now and full of pep.

Decided to include one of Matthew with his big sister Dani too.

Oh my goodness, Gwen, what beautiful eyes your son has! He's a charmer! It won't be long and he'll be making the girls melt with that smile.

Arkansas, Trey's a handsome young man! I'm glad he had fun in the cave, once he got in there. I remember feeling creepy about going inside Mammoth caves, when I was 12, but it was fun.

Guppy, it is always good to see your pictures. Matthew is getting so big! His big sister's adoration of him is certainly obvious. She has a beautiful smile!

I'm still experimenting with getting pictures that will not post teeny tiny! It tells me that most of mine are too big. Anyway, this was almost three years ago, with my granddaughter and her uncle (one of her dad's birth mother's twins), who is only 8 months older than she is. They had both been out in the son a lot in the previous week. He was so sweet to her! Her oldest adoptive uncle had passed away two weeks before and, even though she didn't understand that well, she knew that we were all sad. On that day, she was sad and crying and her sweet uncle gave her his special blankie and sat with her, to help her feel better!

one is of my diva in training lol. The other is one that came out really great of myself and L. As a single parent, I don't have many pictures of just us, so this one is special to me.

Punchkin and Danny, those are beautiful little girls!

GSXR, sorry you couldn't get your picture to post, because I'd love to see your baby! It looks like I may have some white/Hispanic grandkids, too. All of my kids but one is paired off, now, and they are all with significant others who are a different race than they are. They didn't seek that out, it just happened! My third black/white grandchild is due in less than two months, now!

I thought I'd posted on here, but maybe it was another picture parade! Here is Peanut...one is him staring down the Easter Bunny! He pushed past the other kids to get a good look, then basically stalked the Bunny the rest of party! It was pre-haircut...the other two show Little Man after his first haircut...all of the photos were just a week apart, but doesn't he look older! (okay, I guess you can't really SEE him in the first photo, but trust me, he looks older!)

Your kiddos are all so adorable! Here are my kiddos. My daughter is in her "cheesy smile" stage. At least, we're hoping it's a stage, so this is the only photo I could find with her precious smile.

Do you haves smart phone? It's sort of a pain...I have to email mine to myself, save on my iPhone, then send back to myself (because i can't add pics to a.com from my iPhone, I have to do it from the laptop!)...it then asks me what size and I check "small." then, I save on laptop and upload to a.com. I'm sure thee is an easier way, but it's what's I've found that works.
