photos and names that start with "a"

I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted pics, and my goodness, that won’t do. So, how about we do a few picture posts this week, since my brain is so tired from all the… whatever I’ve been doing.

And if your name starts with A, could you scroll to the bottom right quick?

And I have no idea why I’m talking like I’m wearing rolled-up overalls and chewing on a piece of straw.

This here first batch is from Easter at Gabe’s grandpa’s house. (apparently I can’t stop with the hick slang) Can I just say that I love my in-laws and that these pictures make me super-happy?

Four-year-old second cousins Nina and Savana. Is it just me, or do they look like sisters?

The ever-popular Gator ride with Papaw Rock.

Ang and Tug having some cell phone fun.

Mom-in-law, Dad-in-law, Bro-in-law, Hubby.

I love this pic. Aren’t they adorable?

Livi racing Uncle Jim. (she gave him a HUGE head start)

The Taviano grandkids–Tanner, Nina, Morgan, Livi, Reese, Ava.


Well, there’s just really no explanation for this one.

Speaking of no explanation for things, I thought it’d be fun to see how many people’s names start with A. If that’s you, give me a holler.

The rest of you? Have an awesome day!

    First, my name is Amie—my twin daughters are Alivia and Alaina, and I have 4 sisters, Andrea, April, Aubrey, Alexa. And 4 cousins, Andrew, Adam, Aaron, Austin. So I win. This is a contest right, for like a million bucks?
    2nd, I have the best inlaws in the world. I am sooo blessed! 3rd, great job at M2M’s last week. 4th, I’m sending you my prayer request. 🙂

    Allison Anne (two A’s in my name)

    My siblings are Aaron, Andy, Alex and Amber. I always thought A names were the best 🙂

    Did I mention that my maiden name begins with “A” And my daughter’s name begins with “A”? Not that you Asked. I’m probably just trying to be An overAchiever

    I’m chiming in on behalf of our new baby girl, who will be reading and enjoying you in about 20 years as much as I do now!

    Her name is Ainsley.

  6. Jennie

    My middle name is Ann. That’s my “A”. My sister’s name is Addie.

    I love the photos…my favorite one is of ya’ll coolin’ off ya’lls tootsies in the crick. (Thought I’d join you in the slang usage.) My sister and I used to do the same thing in the “crick” at the back of my grandparents’ property in West Liberty. Or sometimes we sat on the lower bridge at the ballpark and put our feet in the same crick.

    Gary & I have great twin nieces w/names of
    Alivia & Alizabeth. And we just had a great
    niece born w/the name Amber.

    I love all these pictures. Will you send to me so that I
    can save? Great memories. Love ya, Aunt Sis XOXO

  9. Kay

    Love your pics. No “A”, but just wanted to say “hey! I done been missing you!” In keeping with the language for the day and all…

  10. Melanie Miller

    What beautiful children! How fun with so many girls! I love the one against the barn, too. I miss the Ohio landscape. No A names here, though, sorry. Unless you count Aunt 🙂

  11. Jamie Nygaard

    My name doesn’t start with A, but do I get any points for naming all my boys’ with the letter E? 😛

    Seriously. LOVE the family photos of Janelle & Rock and boys. Awesome! I couldn’t just help but think of how my family would look like that in about 30 years. However, I don’t think Christian will have near as much hair as Rock has. 🙂

  12. Ali

    LOVE the one of the Tavianos against the barn (is that a barn or a shed or something like that).

    Oh, and hello, my name is Alison.

  13. Amy

    Woo-hoo! That’s me, that’s me! Love you, Marla!

    (By the way, those pictures are ADORABLE! What a blessing your family is. 🙂 )

  14. joyce

    Cute pictures…Tanner has his hands full : ) My nephew is turning 4 and all of his cousins are 20 something girls…he loves it!

    My middle name is Ann. I don’t suppose that counts.

  15. Laura

    Wow, I don’t know why but these pics made me cry. You have such a beautiful family, Marla. And I cannot, CANNOT begin to go there about how amazingly wonderful your inlaws are. You are so very blessed. (no A names here, by the way)

  16. Ang

    Representing the Angela’s. Holla. (Thought all your hick slang might need some ghetto talk to keep it company.) Soooo, how’s the planning for your trip to Oregon coming?
