Haven't put any new pics of the grandkids in here for quite a while. they are. Gracie's 2nd Birthday Party in June, 2011 at a local Burgerville with a birthday/special events room. Big brother Ethen looking on with friend Dave and neighbor Margaret. Middle pic is Ethen with little brother Judah on their way to cousin Ray's wedding. That was in June 2011 also. Bottom pic is Gracie, Judah & mom Robin. Aren't they all just cute as a bug! Lucky Grandpa! ;-))

Christmas 2010

Here's our girl...grandaughter Gracie. The first favorite present was her own "Pillow Pet" from Mom & Dad. (Her brothers got theirs earlier this year on their Birthdays.) Her next favorite was her own kitchen from Gramma & Grandpa. Of course she had to have a whole tray of utinsels & food. (All plastic of course) And with the boys playing with their own new presents, Gracie took advantage of the fact that they were "absent" & sneaked into their playroom to re-arrange their leggo table. Evidently she's not allowed to "Leggo" when the boys are near! At the end of the day, when all is just about cleaned up & put away, there remained another favorite. Her own dolly stroller to push around with a full popcorn tin as her precious cargo. A fun time was had by all. Thanks to the Webberleys for hosting again. Don't know what we'd do without 'em!

UGH!! Winter Again!

Yup! A repeat of 2 years ago. It's 19 stinkin' degrees again! Sure glad I got those extra groceries the other day. These are the days that used to raise my electric bill to over $200 a month. Now, thankfully, we have a gas fireplace installed & it heats this little house just fine. About 65% less than electricity so that's great! We have a 4 bedroom with 1 1/2 baths but they're small rooms. Probably around 1300 sq ft total. That little fireplace heats everything but the back 2 bedrooms. And even on the lowest fan setting, we still have to turn it off because it heats so efficiently. Gotta luv gas heat!

Pass the Tartar Sauce Please!

Our latest Senior Trip. Trout fishing at a private lake about 10 miles south & east of Oregon City, Oregon. The trout were all in the 12"-14" range & every one who wanted to could keep one. All the rest were catch & release. A good time was had by all...and...we went home with a full cooler (12 pack size) of rainbow. Yum!

Grandpa's Little Girl

Here's Grandpa's little girl upstairs at her home getting ready for Church today. How do I know she's getting ready for church? Doesn't every girl wear a binky, a granny shawl, a denim outfit & pink Go-Go boots? Sounds logical to me! ;-))

Gracie At The Park

The grandkids come to the park by grandpa's house every once in a while. Gracie has started to climb to the top of the slide & take the plunge...all by herself! Oh yeah! She loves to swing too...and doesn't care who's her pusher. What a cutie! ;-))

Punkin Time...October 13, 2010

Went to Fiala Farms the countryside west of West Linn. Had a gift certificate I won in a raffle at an earlier Festival. We took all 3 grandkids & roamed around the semi muddy corn patch/punkin fields for about half an hour before they picked out which ones they wanted. They had to be able to carry their own so I figured they'd get some small ones. WRONG! They came up with some that were pretty good sized. I'll let Robin blog pics of them after they get carved & decorated. Gracie got a small one & wanted to wash it herself. Gramma helped.

We stopped at that Scottish restaurant for lunch on the way home. You know...Scottish! (McDonald's) Gracie looks like she's telling her older brothers to "Keep yer Punkin Pickin Paws off my French Fries!" She's sure a cutie! We couldn't have better grandkids. They were really good today...and the boys went right to work fast...picking out punkins for their whole family. Great day! Thank you sunshine angels! ;-))
