Zero To Ninty Five

Zero To Ninty Five

My wife's mother, Elvira Kruse, on her ninety fifth birthday yesterday, surrounded by her great grandchildren (or most of them). Madeleine is in her lap. The little one above and to the right with her hands in her face, Olivia, is actually three weeks younger. Elvira doesn't move around that well but she's completely sharp. You can see the clarity.

Below, son Andy points out the most important rug rat in the place, who is being held by sister in law Dorothy. I believe Madeleine would rather be doing something else.

A lovely group portrait!

Excellent portraits!

Yes, Madeleine would prefer to be off doing something else. Staring at a mobile. Having a nap. Plotting world domination.

Congratulations to Elvira on her beautiful family.

I burst out laughing at the second photo.

I'm back to blogging again - I post every other day.

I love the family group shot Bob, so wonderful these days to gather up so many of a large family together for such a special occasion. Madeleine is doing a perfect Elvis lip :)
