I am a child of the King, wife to the best husband in the world, mom of four wonderful children and one great daughter-in-law, Nana to the three cutest little boys. We have a wonderful life. Who ever would have thought that I could have all of this.
It's that time again.........the first day of school. Not for my kids but my grandsons, two of them. First day of kindergarten and first day of pre-k. It sure doesn't take them long to grow up. I think these "first day" pictures are so great and I sure wish we had thought of them when my kids were small.
A year sure makes a difference at this age. Noah really looks a lot older.
Both boys on first day of Mrs. Baker's Learn and Play school a year apart. Great little pre-school. All four of mine attended her class.
Gotta have some Ninja Turtles!
Isaiah's very own book case and favorite character "Hot Dog" aka Mickey Mouse.
Jonah and his monkey that really goes on his back but this way he can love on him. I think he has seen his mom "wear" Isaiah like this when he was much younger and smaller.
All three boys have played with this little tea pot. It is really looking like it too.
Well, after about 14 months, J&K and family are moving from our house to their new home on the Brown Farm. They are the first ones to move out there and hopefully, Jess will be next and then the hubs and me. I am going to miss them so much; the good morning hugs, the after work greeting hugs, the night time hugs. I get lots of hugs and kisses.....Uh, from the grandsons of course. Our home is the only home Isaiah has ever known since he was born only a couple of weeks after they moved in. On the other hand, I am so happy for them to have been able to build their "forever" home. It is gorgeous.
Jonah loves making mud pies. Jonah loves playing in the dirt, digging in the dirt.....just about anything to do with dirt. And why not? His dad digs in the dirt for a living. Jamie works construction and does "dirt work". So I would think it would just be a natural thing for at least one of his boys to love dirt and Jonah definitely does. So like the loving and caring Nana that I am (just saying)and being that his birthday was coming up, I figured he would love a mud-pie making station (not kitchen). I looked at toy stores galore and even the Little Tykes website and couldn't find anything that was available. So I turned to his creative Aunt Jenny and said, "Hey, could you build one for me?" Of course, she said and build away she went. It couldn't have turned out better.
It's not quite finished here but when she brought it home for his birthday it was. Both boys have had quite the time with it "cooking" all kinds of pies. His dad, of course, even got in the baking.
He had made mud cupcakes, mud turtles,
mud pies and completely covered his mud pie station with mud as well as himself. Doesn't bother him a bit.
