Lunch with Bonnie... and a LONG photo shoot... ;)


One of the fun things I did on my recent journey was to meet Bonnie, from A Writer's Kitchen, for lunch.  It was such a pleasure to meet her in person.  We have been visiting through our blogs for a long while and getting to meet her was every bit as delightful as I had imagined it might be!  Thank you, Bonnie for taking the time to have lunch with us!


As for the rest of this post.... You may want to just exit now! LOL! This is a series (long) of photos made with my Little Loves. Take a close look at Amanda's right hand... she received a remote for her birthday... Enough said. LOL! But, I want to save each and every one.  You can move through quickly and have a motion picture show or ESCAPE NOW!  ;)



















And, here's our Clicker!!  Hee hee!!  She gets a little carried away with the photo thing!  LOL!  Love you, Amanda!!

 If you made it this far, here's wishing you a wonderful week!!

Ok... now I need a clicker :)

I would keep every last picture... as they are all adorable!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Cute pictures. I didn't know you could work a camera with a remote. Cool.

Judy S. said...

What a couple of cuties! Is that a car in your GS's hand? He'd get along great with our two. Did you make their sweaters?

Donna said...

That was a lot of fun. I love how in almost every picture, Amanda is smiling pretty for the camera like the rest of you aren't even there...and she looks beautiful. All of them are so full of love it made my heart happy!

Pondside said...

Those two grand-babies are sweet, sweet, sweet!

Jen said...

Love the photos! I recently bought a remote and my daughter refers to it as my little friend. :)

Christine said...

How fun, a remote contol!
I love how you wrap your arms around Little Man.

Julie Harward said...

I loved that..it felt like I was sitting right there watching..so cute! ;D

Ginny said...

So glad you got to meet Bonnie! She is so nice and has a very dry wit! ALL these pictures are my favorite!! Yes, if I scroll fast, it is like a movie!

Tanja said...

That's great that virtual friends met in real life!
And it's nice to see such a happy grandmother, whose love is transmitted even through time and distance.These Fotos show us that You are such a happy woman, Tanna!
It was good that I once found your blog! Read about events in your life is very interesting and helpful to me personally! Thank you and may all be good!

Emily said...

Haha! Great photos!

From the Kitchen said...

I had to stay on until the end to see what Little Man was up to and Littlest Man's reactions!! I notice that the most "composed" subject was the young lady in charge of the "clicker"!! Great photos.

Thanks for your kind words.

Best,
Bonnie

Susan said...

Cute, cute, cute....and very precious! You and your daughter look like sisters!! When there is distance between you....pictures are such treasures. And SKYPE! How did we manage without Skype? Susan

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Such beautiful photos! Such a beautiful family you are blessed with. I love all the smiles. :) And that clicker makes for a great tool!

Kelly said...

Your daughter is so pretty! You don't look old enough to be a grandmother. Really! I can tell you love your grandkids to pieces. As well it should be. That's a good idea to use a remote like that. Now the photographer can be in the pictures too! Thanks for sharing.

It's Just Dottie said...

I know just how you feel! I can never get enough Nana love either!
Smiles, Dottie

Tricia @ saving room for dessert said...

I LOVE your photos! So glad you got to meet with one of those nice bloggers :) Got your thank you note - and you are so welcome! You look so very happy in these photos. They are truly adorable. Have a good week yourself :)

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Beautiful photos, Tanna! You have a lovely family and you look young enough to be your daughter's sister! The little ones are so precious. The remote is a great idea and really worked well for these wonderful shots.
Enjoy your day!

Scott said...

Wow, you got them to sit in your laps for a long time. Way to go. Wonderful shots worth their weight in gold.

OBTW, my blog is finally back, restored and in full swing. Thanks for your support!

podso said...

Ah digital photos! We can take til our heart is content. None of these were discardable, there is something to behold in each. they would make a nice mosaic for your wall! Or at least a screensaver! So glad you and Bonnie got to meet!

Wonderful memories for you my friend!

Karolee said...

Fun photos!

Shug said...

Adorable....every single picture is great...Now, I have to know every single detail about that remote...I am still camera shopping and hope to select one sometimes this next week...What kind of camera does she have that uses this remote?
Hugs Tanna...

Katherine said...

Loved ALL those pictures!! How great is that clicker? I can only imagine the fun you all have when you're together! How wonderful!!

Amanda said...

Note to self: In the future, make sure you delete all photos off of your camera that Noni could take and embarrass you with.

Oh, and I do believe that saying, "She gets a little carried away with the photo thing," is the pot calling the kettle black, don't ya think? I'm just sayin'. LOL!

Stacey said...

Tanna - You and Amanda are beautiful!! And those two little ones...oh my! I can see why you wouldn't want to delete a single photo. I absolutely love how littlest man is adoringly looking at big brother. Sweet sweet memories!

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

Beautiful...now let me wipe my eyes...I am so longing for this time, but only in God's timing, which will be perfect.

How fun to meet a blogging buddy...I think God is just knitting the hearts of His Bride!

The Little Adventures of LueLee said...

SOOOO CUTE I loved the long photo shoot :) hope you had a great birthday :) Love you xoxoxoxo

Ana said...

How cuuute! I love the photo shoot! Oooh, and I love the clicker. Will definitely have to let my daughter know about that. (If she doesn't already know) She loves photography and is quite the photographer. Sending you a great big warm hug.

Blessings,
♥Ana

Diane B said...

Those are the sweetest pictures. Isn't it a hoot trying to get everyone to look at the camera at the same time? One year we did family photos with 12 of us! With 5 kids, it was just hilarious.

Chatty Crone said...

You are beautiful and so it your family - what wonderful grandsons you have and a beautiful daughter.

They are so sweet. Now are you saying your daughter took the pictures?

I looked at all of them.

Deb said...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

How fun it must have been to meet Bonnie! I enjoy her blog very much.

I loved all the sequences of photos of you and your daughter and the two boys. The Little Man had his baby brother quite enthralled :)

Donna said...

you are beautiful!! and your family is beautiful!! and I love what you created in the next blog....sigh...I am talentless...but I enjoy watching you!

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, Great photo's!! Thank you for sharing. Blessings, Catherine xo

Cindy said...

Those are SO adorable, your little men are so sweet and beautiful and your daughter is lovely! She looks so much like you.
Hugs, Cindy

AudreyO said...

I have loved meeting my online friends over the years. It's amazing how much time we spend chatting with those we've never even seen in person.

steph said...

Oh, my!!! Just found your blog! and am loving it! (The clicker photo is priceless--made me giggle--I can see my daughter getting "into" that sort of thing!)

(I live in a little bungalow that looks very very similar to the one in your header.)

California Girl said...

those are terrific! she's like my husband. we did a series of family photos in late Summer when both boys were home. my husband probably took 20 shots of the family with his clicker. ours include the dogs. they're nice because it was a verdant time of year, we were drinking wine & everyone was in a good mood.

I still don't have a single copy of them. He's on to something else. sigh.
