Indulge me...okay?


I mentioned in my blog post last night that I was going out of town today for Grandparents Day at the grands school. What a wonderful day it was!

I really try not to put too many personal things on my blog...but sometimes "Mimis" just have to share when we are so proud that we can barely stand it!

The first picture is from the play at their school today. The star in that photo with the sunglasses and leather jacket is Dylan...my 8 year old grandson. He was "The Fonz"! Can you tell by his stance and the way the girls are swooning? LOL! See...I'm not the ONLY ONE who thinks he's cute! :-)


I really did have a WONDERFUL TIME, and I'm so glad I could go. And yes, it was SO WORTH getting up at 4:30 this morning to get there in time! I even got new school pictures today, and they were so darned cute that I'm sharing those too! This adorable little boy is my 8 year old grandson Dylan...aka The Fonz! He has three younger siblings...two brothers, and the youngest is his 3 year old sister. I have to tell you that he is the VERY BEST BIG BROTHER. And I am so proud of him in every way. He sets a wonderful example for the others, and he is so loving and caring. Okay...I'm bragging...I know! :-)

This is Christian. He is a younger brother to Dylan. He is 6, and about the sweetest child ever. He is very well mannered, incredibly considerate and thoughtful, and such a cutie! He is also a great brother to the others...in every way imaginable.

I am so blessed that my son and his wife are such good and loving parents. They are teaching these children to love God, respect their fellow man, and how to be good citizens. What more can a grandparent want? Yes, I truly AM blessed!

Okay...you have indulged me enough, and I thank you for that. In my next post I will go back to cards. :-)

As most of you know, Ali was airlifted to Seattle Children's Hospital last night. You can follow her progress through SCS On This Thread . We appreciate your prayers for Laurie and Ali as they struggle through this difficult time.

Have a fabulous weekend...I will be back soon with something new.

Oh my word! I would have swooned over "The Fonz" if I'd been there too! Your grandchildren are darling (ok....I'm sure the boys wouldn't want to be refered to as darling, but they ARE!)

I'm so happy you shared these photos. Ahhh...nothing can make a smile bigger and brighter than sharing your children/grandchildren. :)

Well it was about time you shared pictures of your grandsons (at least two of them). They're quite handsome young men and I'm so happy for you. It certainly sounds that you have 4 excellent reasons to be proud. I wish you many more blessings. Thank you also for the link to Ali. Heartbraking to say the least.
