Thirteen things that I LOVE about keeping grands!!


  • They mind me
  • They keep me young
  • They ask me all kinds of questions then I have to figure out the RIGHT answer
  • We have fun
  • WE go swimming
  • We eat chicken nuggets with three kinds of sauces!!

(Garrett would not let me take this unless He would become FAMOUS!!)
  • We dance
  • WE chase each other around the dining room table. Gma you can really run!!
  • We color and have fun
  • They are very good..most of the time!!
  • I actually make a little bit of my own money too!!
  • I learn IF God is older than earth of if the earth is OLDER than God!! (We figured God was older!!)
  • Hopefully I can instill some good into them and they will remember their Gma Sandy someday!!

Flip Flop

Thought for the day: " A Hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world maybe different because I was important in the life of a child.!" This is my favorite quote!!

Yes Grandkids are very special people to Gma and Gpa's. We had a good time with ours and they do remember us and look forward to seeing us this coming August, so that is nice. We have a nice bunch of grand children and love each and every one of them. Our oldest is going to be coming to stay with us in about 3 weeks, we can hardly wait. He sure looks like his Gpa. We noticed how much Brie looks like her Mother Julie, my she is going to be a beautiful girl. Thanks for the picture you sent, she is so pretty. Love u. Mother & Dad

I guarantee you, with THAT smile, Garret is SURE to be FAMOUS!!! He can make his fortune advertising nugget sauces! :) They ARE fun, aren't they? I was with Luz again today - and just like yours, she has a MILLION questions!

Aren't the grands the best part about growing up? Trying to catch up on a few posts here as it has been crazy. I felt for you with the surroundings for the 4th of July. What a nightmare so I am glad the fireworks were good.

Love the housecleaning poem. Soooo true.

Happy belated birthday to your mom. What a nice tribute to her.

Hi Sandy,

I love your thought for the day. I enjoy it when my grandkids come for a visit. I pet them and pamper them and hope to make good memories for them when I'm gone.

Enjoyed your TT.
