Grandkids were here !!!!

Our Precious Grandchildren.....
We were blessed to finally have the grand kids
after not seeing them for over two months. It is
amazing how much you miss out on in just two
short months....60 days....a lifetime it may seem.
Caleb is old enough to truly have a bond with us
and so looks forward with sharing our time and love.
We treasure each moment with him for they will
be gone all too soon. Soon they will be living
in an other state (military), he will become a
teenager, or just simply life itself.
So having time with the grandchildren, making memories
that will last a life time is incredibly important.
It is what Grandparents are all about after all...
Yes, we will spoil them, then send them home.
And it will be WAY too soon.

It is kind of nice to have a little wet weather creek in
our yard. It makes for some fun places to play.
And some fun places to take pictures.

Allie is so hard to photograph....
She will not hardly look at the camera
no matter how hard I try.
She definitely has a stubborn streak but
sometimes that in itself is fun to photograph.
You learn to take what you get and just
get what you can take!

Now just look at the expression this girl has!!!

This is my favorite picture of Caleb.

Caleb and his b.b.gun from Christmas.
He is learning the safety issues with it.

Of course Zoe is a major part of Caleb's life.
She is getting old too, so I treasure any picture with
her and Caleb that I get.

She certainly loves her boy.....she really does!

Playing on the bridge that they made with PaPa for Grandma
to take pictures with.....yes, it looks like it is doing a good job at that.

See how she just LOVES to have her picture taken...
This was just so much fun....
More to come.
(trust me!)

I cannot believe how big they are getting! Caleb is such a young man! And that Allie? Too adorable. So glad you had that time!!

I got tears knowing that you have missed these two adorable people! The pictures are fantastic...they have grown so much. Hopefully, you will still be able to keep up withthem even though they are out of state...(computers, you know!!!) Of course, it isn't the same as holdng and hugging them in person.
I'm happy for you that you got to see them!

They are definitely changing. Caleb is losing his baby looks and Allie is getting bigger.

Why am I sitting here with tears flowing down my cheeks! They're you're grand kids, not mine! But I know the way you've missed them and prayed to be able to see them. And I know what it's like to miss grand kids. I'm so happy that you got to spend time with them, and hope it will happen more frequently.

And know what girlfriend? I miss you! I wish we would have had a week to spend together rather than just the one evening and a short morning. Maybe again soon. We've talked Arizona for next winter, and I guarantee that road will go right through your yard!

Love ya!
