Poppy's Pictures

Welcome to this world Poppy! You will note there is a theme going through Poppy's Pictures... She entered this world screaming.... absolutely fit to be tied.
A bit stout around the middle!

I love this picture! Poppy and Poppa (haha) I think we have this one 10 times!

Plumpkins has zipped her lips for a few minutes.

The 4 proud sisters pay a visit.

Finally, a little sister for me!

Eowyn and Poppy

Poppy evened us up. 5 boys and 5 girls.

Later, Sam and Frodo paid a visit with Grandma and Grandpa.

Frodo dotes on Poppy and before he runs off to do anything he has to stop and give her a little kiss.

One of our wonderful priests pays a visit.

I normally do not include pictures with myself in them since I haven't been photogenic for about 35 years but the contrast here is just one family oddity..... So we are sitting out with Poppy enjoying a beautiful day when....

Grandpa arrives with 3 geese to add to our Farm of Misfit Animals. (think Rudolph)

Only at our house would we be welcoming a new baby and honking geese.
However geese have a redeeming quality unlike our dogs who bark at me when I come in the driveway but welcome their delivery friends with just a wag of the tail so they can get a doggie biscuit. Geese honk when they don't know someone who drives in. So around here it's "Don't trip over the dogs, but beware of survillance geese."

Rosie and Poppy.... this was Rosie just before she broke out in a grand case of Poison Ivy that only came out on her face! Poor thing.
Galadriel and Poppy.

Oh my! Looks who is screaming.

Little mother.

Poppy screaming again. See our theme song?

And again, the angel in the choir singing her royal lungs out.

Poppy was baptized by one of our wonderful priests on Our Lady's Birthday.


This week we also celebrated Eowyn's birthday and snuck in Galadriel as well since we didn't quite finish celebrating her birthday! We are always a day late and a dollar short!
