Mid Winter Break . . .

do you frame your children's art
fun to do, fun to see
colors and things
is one of grandson Jordon's
first experiences with water color
he was almost three years old
there was no doubt about it
when he told me this was
"color and things"
and so it is . . .
2003



mid winter break this past weekend
so I had a chance to spend some time
with grandson tyler on friday
grandson jordon on monday


tyler
a senior
is sometimes as serious as he looks
in this picture
and then at other times
he is relaxed
 visiting with me
telling me his plans for next year
college of course
yet like many 17 year olds
he isn't sure what he wants to be or do
unbelievable he has grown up so fast

lunch at appleby's
filled out an application for a job
a ride in his "new to him" car
some of my best times are
spending time with the grand kids

i am over the moon in love with this boy


jordon and I have spent a bunch of time together
in the past thirteen years
his other granny and I alternated 
care of him during the day
while his mom and dad worked
when he started kindergarten
we granny's changed from child care
to grade school volunteers
we have enjoyed life with our grandchildren
and participating in their school and sport life



jordon and tyler like good food
their granny's love to cook
and the boys have grown up with enjoying family dinners
as well as eating out at various restaurants

tyler enjoyed some steak on monday at appleby's
jordon enjoyed his favorite eating out place
olive garden and his favorite meal
lots of salad and chicken scampi

jordon loves the home cooking
and a favorite is grandpa jack's mashed potatoes with garlic
another favorite is the other granny's broccoli
lots of it 

tyler likes most anything at this point
his wish the other day was steak
and then he happened to mention he loved my 
 white chicken chili and red chili

making meals for working parents
during the work week is a big treat
the other granny and I enjoy making meals
 for our families

long ago my kids asked me what things I thought
were important for a family
not difficult for me to answer
 "sit down to a meal together"

much can happen
conversation
sharing
togetherness
laughter
unity



after lunch
jordon and I came back to our house
and played a game of skip bo
jordon is a delight like no other
he is genuine and joyful

i am over the moon in love with this boy

What joys your grandsons are to you! You are so lucky to have 'been there' all through their growing up.

Very good looking boys Lynne,
I can see how proud you are of them and deservedly so.

Lovely post and I totally agree with sitting down as a family enjoying a meal together,
that is my perfect thing to do.

Happy Friday my friend.

Your boys are so handsome. I can just feel the love pouring from this post. You are a wonderful example of family.

It is wonderful that these boys have the love and companionship of both of their Grannies.

Aunt Barb said...

Great post, Lynne. Your contribution to their lives are invaluable. They will remember forever!

Oh Lynne I can heard the love as I read your words this morning. All children are gift's from God, but I hear that Grandchildren hold a special part of your heart. I've been so lucky to share the lives of many wonderful nieces, nephews, and now my great nieces, not to mention my own dear sons and daughter. I can't imagine how my heart will grow when I meet my granddaughter. Your handsome grandsons are so lucky to have two wonderful grandmothers working together to enrich their lives! You will be a role model for me in the months and years to come! Love, Penny

Your grandsons are handsome boys. It's nice that you have them close by and can spend a lot of time with them. Enjoy it as they'll soon be flying off to adulthood. Pamela

I am fortunate enough to have had the love of grandparents bestowed upon me and I am positive that those two fine young men are over the moon in love with you too.
