Celebrating a Missing Camera

Thank you, Ruth, for hosting this celebration of our week!

Last June, my sister and her family relocated to Dallas.  I have missed them terribly.  This past week, they came into town for a visit.  It was great to catch up and to spend time with them, especially my niece and nephew.



Yesterday, we celebrated Jack's and Grace's birthdays since all the rest of the family lives here and were unable to celebrate with them on their actual birthdays.

So what happens when your six year old nephew "borrows" your camera?  Lots of fun selfies for me to remember them by after they return to Dallas.





Gotta love that boy!

What are you celebrating this week?  Be sure to check out Ruth's blog for more celebrations and to add your own!

(P.S. -- I'm new to this celebration linky, but I have noticed that when readers leave comments on my posts, most of you are coming up as a "no reply blogger," which means I can't respond to your comments via email.  If you are using the Blogger platform for your posts and would like to fix this, there is a great tutorial here.  The fix is super simple and will make commenting correspondence so much easier!  It is worth the minute to see if this is affecting your blog.)

  2. Welcome to the celebration link up! So glad you're here! I live far from my sister and niece and nephew. It's hard. In 2 weeks my nephew and my mother are taking the train to visit me. I can't wait!!! Looks like you had lots of fun with your family! Happy Celebrating! :)

  3. "That boy" sure does know how to capture a celebration in progress. :) The fun and joy radiate through. (BTW your joy and fun comes through actually meeting you, too. I am glad you were brave and came to All Write!)

    1. Yes he does! I wish I could bottle that up and save it for when he is not here. It was such a joy meeting you last week! You helped me feel welcome (and brave)!

  8. I loved seeing those smiles and funny faces. So many happy people. Thank you for the advice to edit the blogger profile. I discovered I was one of the no-reply bloggers. Fixed the situation.

  9. Celebration in the unexpected...I was wondering how you had photos if the camera had gone missing. It was fun to discover it had secretly fallen into the happy hands of your family!
