In which Cleveland turns another year older...

...and in which we have one of the best times we've ever had, gathered around the table in the barn, laughing, singing...celebrating him and his life, and thanking the Lord Jesus for him.

Ah, how we love him!

How blessed we are to have him as our brother and son.

We love you, Cleve. So much.
Down the table.To have Wesley and Uncle Frank both telling stories at the same table is one of the most glorious things in the world!! (We were so thrilled the Campanas were up here that weekend!!)
"...and you know, this guy was over there doing this number..."
Crying-waving hilarious!!Mama and Daughter-Kress and Isa, we love you so! Oh, and check out Isa-, she sucks her thumb!! How dainty is that? Well, she's not actually doing it in this picture, LOL, but it is so so cute when she does...)
Carlo was in such suspense over this story. :)
Daddy's all-the-way-laugh -One of the most delightful sounds in the world! It makes me grin just looking at this picture.Joe
Marth and N.-precious sisters!Reading birthday notes and opening some awesome, thoughtful gifts. :)
And I shall end with one of my favorite pictures from the last few weeks.
*merriment and laughing* (More on this later)

Happy Birthday, dearest brother.

Love forever,

Adeline, for all of us

Some of you got it...

...and some of your guesses made us laugh even harder. :D

And here's the one to the right, today, holding one of the precious little babies at Church. :D

(We love you, Aunt Laura and Amanda!! Uncle Marc, thanks for the beautiful idea. :)

Love and laughing,

Now accepting guesses.... regards to the identity of the two stealthy individuals above. Name the two persons correctly and you will receive fame and accolades.

(Oh my stars-you will love this!! :P LOL-when I got it via email several weeks ago it made my day. Only one hint, lovelie-they live in the south, a little east.)
While we're waiting for some pictures of Enoch to arrive, I thought I would entertain us all by sharing! (with their permission, of course.)

May the hysteria commence!

With love,

A New Look!!


Dearest Observer,

I now present to you a new look here on this mortonclan blog. Fresh picture, white background, delicious new( but not too different) font...

. What ya' think?

Less trashy looking in the sidebar? Or does one feel lost? There is no little welcoming words or picture, or 'about us' up top. It's almost like not having a door mat. But I put all that goodie down at the bottom. And I seems like the words in the header should be bigger, maybe white...I think it's not quite singing. I'll see what my family thinks about it in the mornin'. Have you any thoughts?

Hehe, I know you have much more important things to do then evaluate blog templates, but would you be so gracious as to send a little feed back? Is it any easier to read/pictures clearer? Thanks, dearies!!

For the trouble of reading this wordy postage, I shall end with one of my very favorite pictures from this past month. Jeanine Morton...Strength and dignity are her clothing; And she laugheth at the time to come..." (Prov. 31)

(I love you, Mama!!

Goodnight, kind Observers. Ta-ta, toodles & a cheerio!!
