|(sniff) Some days, we really miss the kids.|
Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap. [Doug Larsen]
Yep, you guessed it. Glory hallelujah, it's time for us to pull out the liniment, because Smarticus and I are gonna spend time with our four Alabama grandkids this weekend!
Needless to say, I won't be messing with a computer when there's playing to be done and silly songs to be sung, but how's about a quick post before I pull the plug and dig out the BenGay?
Aren't kids terrific? It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to see our grandchildren enjoy some of my favorite things.
And I can't tell you how proud we are of their terrific table manners.
And oooo-eee! Talk about helpful...
The handwriting on the wall means the grandchildren found the crayons.
And smart? You'd better believe it! They're all avid readers, and can work the remote controls and DVD player way better than I can. (Which, granted, ain't saying much.)
Grandparents are just antique kids.
They're very inquisitive, and show a natural affinity for animals, too.
My grandkids believe I'm the oldest thing in the world. And after two or three hours with them, I believe it, too. [Gene Perrett]
The grandkids we're gonna be with this weekend are very close in age. The oldest just started kindergarten, and the youngest is just under two. So, as you can imagine, it's a blessing that they play together so well, and know how to entertain themselves so creatively.
|(Pssst...take a closer look.)|
They're all little angels, as far as I'm concerned.
Do you know why children are so full of energy? Because they suck it all out of their grandparents. [Gene Perrett]
There's nothing quite as invigorating as playing with a child... or quite as exhausting.
An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again. Anything longer than that, you start to age quickly. [Gene Perrett]
Okay, all these pictures so far are just cute or funny pictures from the Internet... from good ol' senior ark, morguefile, and from my good ol' brother. (Thanks, Ron!) Wanta peek at the real thing? The four we'll be with this weekend?
All together now... AWWWWWWWW!
|Kymber, Aaron, Jaiden, and Devyn|
They look a lot happier here, and yep! they're in Mommy and Daddy's bed. (Good thing they have a big one, huh?)
I will not play tug o' war.
I'd rather play hug o' war.
Where everyone hugs instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses and everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.
So, y'all have a wonderful weekend. Me? I plan to be hugging and cuddling and giggling like an antique kid.
Take care of yourselves. And each other.
