It seems like it was just yesterday, that the kids were little and now in less than 3 months … Jeff and I will be empty nesters! I am grateful that we have Jenny and Angie still close by, what would we do without them? We realize that since our married kids are young parents, the there will be times that we might not live close by. That is even hard to think about, much less imagine. Many of my friends don’t live close to their grandchildren so we know at this moment… how blessed we are.
Now our son Brad and his wife Krystal are expecting their first baby and they don’t live close. We are already aching to see that new little grandchild, and guess what…it’s a boy!!!!
How exciting, we can hardly wait! Yes, being a grandparent has been a great blessing in my life, how happy these two little red heads make me. And since Krystal has red hair in her family, you wonder if we will get another cute red head for this St. Patrick’s Day?
Today we babysat Jenny for a little while and she always seems to have something funny to say. Today she walked into my room with her head hanging sorta down and her shoulders down, and with a frown on her face. I asked her what was wrong but she didn’t say anything, she just came over and leaned on me. Then I asked her if she was having a bad day, and she shook her head YES! At the ripe old age of two, you have got to wonder how bad could your days be?
When I found these photos of her tonight it made me realize once again that time is flying by and our little Jenny is growing up fast, just like her sister! Yes, it is vital to enjoy every minute of these little guys life. Jeff and I are already looking at plane tickets so in March we will be able to go and welcome our new little GRANDSON into our family! Life is good…real good!
Good night dear friends!
