The moment you've all been waiting for....
a must watch for all family & friends.
Andrea, thank you so much!
MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
|Look at this little guys face - it radiates pure JOY! Mike & I had our first real grandparent's day on Saturday with our little grandson who is visiting from Sweden. We took him to the Sandy Aquarium & he couldn't get enough of this tank with a huge turtle and a lot of sharks. He kept calling him Tommy the Turtle after a book his mother reads him. The funny thing is that Mike...yes, MIKE keeps grabbing our new camera & snapping photo after photo.|
|We really like being grandparents!|
|After spending 10 days with the above two grandchildren & their mother,|
|5 days with our darling daughter...|
|7 days with Rob, Amy & John, 6 days with Brittany but only 4 days Brian.|
THERE...Did I forget anyone?
|One fun day will all of these guys...|
|Celebrating a birthday a few days early... |
(Do you like my truck cake?)
|Spending mornings playing outside with Grandpa |
(Do you love the p.j. look with tennis shoes? Also, funny how Mike got into taking a lot of photos of his favorite boys.)
Mike & I are going thru
Sadly, everyone has left our home.
Please come back!
|I asked Mike to smile & he said he was. Hum....an exhausted smile, maybe? |
This was after his 7 mile run. His father use to run this trail & this was a goal of his to run it too.
|Notice...this guy caught this fish right before I snapped this photo.|
|After our morning runs.|
|Charlie & Mike...just finishing the Dipsea Trail Run...two exhausted men.|
|Neither child was interested in this photo session.|
|Sporting matching hair cuts.|
|Andrea told tales and claimed that this is Mr. Fox's house. |
A real fox came on Rob & Lorena's patio and stole one of our grandsons balls....
so our grandson kept wanting to take a trip up the hill to Mr. Fox's House.
I wonder if he thought he'd see Mr. Fox?
|This is what she did best - SLEEP|
|Grandpa teaching his grandson to shoot a bow and arrow. A very useful skill.|
|I had to be very creative cake using whatever items I could find in Sweden to make this into Elmo. |
Turned out that the sprinkles were strawberry flavored, the nose - orange candy coated almond
and his smile - chocolate sauce.
What's a birthday without cake, RIGHT?
Notice the knock-off Dumbo ride. Our grandson knew exactly how to make the elephant soar.
Seriously, he said push that button, flies high. Wow, we miss them!
NEXT TIME, COME VISIT GRANDPA AND GRANDMA'S HOUSE.
