Favorite things


The family cottage is steeped in memories and filled with momentos.  These two collages are treasured by our family.  They were put together by my MIL, D’mama Elaine.

This first one is all about fishing, catching “the big one”.  I love the photo on the right of my BIL Jim…showing off his not so big catch.  And the one of TJ, proudly holding a pine snake.  The girl fisherperson is Lisa, the fish practically jump on the pier or boat for her!

This next collage is of all the grandchildren, our children…they are all grown up now.  Many have kids of their own.  These cousins are all still close, helped by the time we all had together at the cottage.  Perhaps my favorite is little Emily next to big dog Mika.

Thank you to Jack and Elaine for welcoming us, putting up with the chaos, and helping us be a close knit family here on the beach.

  1. And now it is up to the new generation to capture the great grand moments to immortalize in the dining hall

  2. Awe, Dang… Kel went home today and I got all weepy. Now I’m all weepy again. The cottage is the one constant in all of our lives and I’m so thankful that the youngsters seem to enjoy it as much as we all have.

  3. I love all these photos and family ties..I think the norf is a perfect backdrop for this love with no interference from the outside world. To grow up with it surrounding you must feel like a cozy comforter on a cold day.

  4. Your family is the very model of close knit. You are a bunch of good knitters.
