Seasons turning and things that I am grateful for...

 This afternoon I took some pictures of Bryden and then mail came with some photos of the girls.   These pictures all made me smile, shake my head and go "awww" respectively.  Funny, I recently heard a statement about having grandchildren that said something like, "when you have grandchildren, your heart is taken out of your body and you see it grow legs and walk around".  So true!  Whenever one of my children calls with stories about the grands, it lives in my brain for a while.  Tim told me some about Cooper this week that we talked about for two days!

This first pic I took of Bryden watching cartoons on TV.  He gets such a kick out of them and laughs!  That makes me laugh!!
 Here, he has discovered the Fisher-Price creche that I just got out with the Christmas decorations.
 Contemplating his "boots".
 Bailey's pre-school picture!!
Lori took these photos of the girls in fall leaves.
 Emma discovering...bugs??
Just a sweet one of Bailey....

  and my fav!!!!

such wonderful pictures. You are right about grandchildren. We saw Miss Baby pulling herself up I have thought about a 100 times.

Oh sweet Donna as always I love coming by here and seeing your precious Grand babies. They are just adorable and I know exactly what you mean about the feelings we have being grandparents.
They have certainly changed my world and I am so grateful for each moment that I have with them.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend
Love

Wow! You hit the nail on the head about grandchildren! Sometimes my heart just wants to burst--I love them so much. Your sweet ones take such great photos!

Anyone who doesn't have grandchildren is seriously deprived of pleasure. Mine are only with us for a few weeks each year.... but they're the best ones.

Sweet photos of the little ones, Donna. With 9 grandchildren myself, I know the love you feel for each and everyone, after 24 years, that feeling remains just as strong.

They are such darling kids, and that last photo is a treasure!

You're right - I said "Awwww" all the way though this post. Seriously, I think you have the best dressed grandkids I have ever seen!

Donna - I know exactly how you feel about your grandchildren - there is nothing better in this world than being close to a grand baby - it is a love like no other.

These pictures are all so precious - your babies are beautiful - those sweet faces make me smile - and I know they touch your heart so.

I feel that I have so much to be thankful for - my grand babies mean the world to me. I know you are going to have a wonderful Christmas - they are going to have a big time this year - they are just at the right age to truly enjoy the Christmas spirit.

Thanks for stopping by -
(I will be emailing you soon about your nest~~)

Oh my gosh! What wonderful pictures of your grandchildren. Aren't grandchildren just the best. It was such fun watching mine grow up. My youngest one was 14 and now I have three younger ones since our son remarred. They are adorable too and I will definitely have to post their pictures too.

I cherish my role as a Grandmother!
