I've been tagged!

I have been tagged by Fern over at Ferns Lake! I stopped by her post last night and saw my name. When ever I see my name in someone else's post I get a moment of panic. LOL It's like, "Aaaah what did I do now". I got in trouble alot when I was a kid. hahaha

The instruction is to go into my photo collection, take the fourth folder and the fourth picture in that folder and explain it. Then tag four more bloggers to do the same. But since those instructions sent me to Tiggers folder and she has dominated my blog of late. SO I went to another folder and chose from that and here we are:

This photo is of my nephew John, my daughter Jackie and my youngest son Nick (soon to be a dad). This picture was taken at Jackie's UC Davis graduation party last June of 08. John is 21 I believe, Jackie is 22 and Nick is 20. They have all grown up together and have a great relationship. They might not see each other as often now but when they do they just pick up from where they left off. It's great to see. John is named after my father, Jackie is sort of named after my husbands mother, but I had already picked this name years before it just so happens to be my MIL too lol and Nick was my choice and when he was born and the doctor asked what his name was I yelled out Nicholas before my husband could say "Skip". The doctor said to my husband, Nicholas huh? and husband says, "I guess so". Can you honestly look into a baby's face and say "hiya there Skip"? It's not a bad name, it's just not going to be attached to anyone in MY family. LOL No offense to any blogger named Skip. Nick loves to tell this story.

My handsome nephew John is going to San Francisco State, not sure what he is studying, I am sure he told me but I have since forgot.... but he'll do great what ever it is, we are all very proud of him. He is the most loving and sweet young man. I kinda think he looks like Prince William with more hair ... lol .

Jackie now works for The Western Institute for Food Safety and Security, working on a plan to help make sure all the states have a food safety disaster plan ready and in place in case of any sort of attack on our food and animals. She is also getting married to Brian in October this year.

Last is my youngest son Nick. He is currently a Loss Prevention Agent for a large circle of Grocery stores that covers four cities so beware because he can KICK YOUR BUTT! He was a Varsity Wrestler for 5 years and can take down someone two to three times his size. He and Alicia are going to be parents in August of this year and are preparing for that big life changing step!

Whew, I didn't know I was going to come up with all that from this picture, lol . I am supposed to tag four people and so here they are:

It's fun doing these 4th of the 4th and 6th of the 6th pictures to see what's there. Nice picture and story! Usually when a boy is called Skip it's a nickname. It indicates he's been named after his grandfather John or whatever, and the name "skipped a generation". Chip is a "chip off the old block"

You can see the family resemblence in all of them, the cousins look alike. And yes, your nephew does resemble Prince William. Nice looking relatives you have. lol.

You've got quite a story to go with your photo! When I did this meme, I think I had 2 sentences for the picture. ;)

So glad you didn't mind me tagging you, I was coming over to tell you but you spotted it first!
What a good looking trio, John really does look like Prince William, I am sure he could have a bit of fun with that!
Wonderful to see Tigger doing so well, he has had a very good nurse.
