Happy Birthday To My Nephew John (or John-John or Johnny)

That's him sitting on my lap.  Behind me is my sister Sheila, then her husband Tom Laing; to Tom's right is my mother; in front of her Tom and Sheila's daughter Mary Ann, then John's brother Robert with his brother Daniel leaning on a chair and waving Hi or hiding his face; and in front is Tommy Laing, Sheila and Tom's son.  I have lots of nephews and each and every one of them is my favorite but for today Johnny gets to be the favorite of the favorites.  And my constant reminder: click on the picture to make it larger.


  1. What a great picture! I've never seen it before. It brought tears to my eyes to see Grandma, her cookie jars sitting on the counter and her kitchen clock. Do you know what the occasion was for the gathering as I notice Grandma has a corsage on. Also my brother John is a GREAT guy!

    Thanks for the birthday wishes and for posting that great picture. It is rare to see the Laing and Fitzgerald kids all together in the same pic. I would bet if we had not moved to
    IL there would have been many more like it taken. I'm lucky to have such a great sister and to share a side-byside birthday! You are the best! Love, Johnny
