Tuesday "Tails"

Knock Knock
Whose There
Chatty
Chatty Who
Did you forget me already?


Okay you are going to have to bare with me this week - have to put pictures of the trip - as this blog is something I want to leave to the grand kids. So of course I have to put them in here!

We went to Ohio the first part of last week. Of course we brought Disco so this is my part of Tails. LOL

My kids have a feral cat that would just as soon kill Disco or me for that fact - so they put Toby in another room. However we kept Disco right next to us and on a leash. We of course didn't want Disco to get to the cat or the baby - who knows - right?


And we brought the grandson Elmo on drums and he LOVED it - got him an Elmo shirt at the beach too. Can't say Disco thought a whole lot about Elmo. I loved Elmo! Is Elmo a tail?



God is my first love of course - but these two boys rank high on my list.



One poses for the camera and the other one is busy!



THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:



REMEMBER THIS ~



~ LIFE DEMANDS SILLINESS - at least mine does! ~

How was your week last week and did I miss something I should know about? Any prayers or anything?

Love family pictures and events and your grandchildren are precious. We are planning our first trip with Slim in September to visit the family in San Diego. This should be interesting.

I enjoyed seeing your family, not boring for me. I think once a mother becomes a grandmother she can fully understand all the roles in her life, and how they are all so different. Dogs, cats, even Elmo. Whatever it is these kids are carrying on the memory of us. They won't get it until they grow up and have their own family life.

Chatty, These penguins are so sweet. And I love the saying, "Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful." Your Grandchildren are wonderful. You always have such cheerful posts.

Blondee said...

Love the pics of your boys. Priceless memories right there. :)

And the name Disco is awesome!!

Vee said...

Looks as if you enjoyed a fun visit with your grandsons. A feral cat is always exciting. Mine started out that way, though the years have mellowed her.

You didn't miss a thing at my place. I took the end of the week off myself. Sometimes a break is in order.

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Loved the photos! Elmo, the grandkids,Disco, everything! Great job.

Last week was busy,as usual. I missed you! But you were safe in my mind, heart, and prayers the whole time. Susan

TexWisGirl said...

poor kitty is probably happy to have its space back. :)

Angela said...

I'm glad you got to get away and visit with your family Sandie! Looks like everyone had a great time! Even Disco! We have a guitar playing Bert that my daughter got as a baby.

Hugs,
Angela

Loved the "Chatty who" comment! See, you're silly! I so agree with you, I like lots of silliness in my life. Lovely photos of the grandsons for us to look at today. Any news on the older one's school yet??

I love the photos. It looks like you had a great time. We must have been traveling the same roads. We stopped in Ohio also on our trip.

Gloria Hood said...

What a wonderful time that sounded like! Silliness??? Oh yeah!

Sounds like a wonderful visit. We do the same thing when kids come over. You just never know and the risk is not worth it. Love the pictures. Precious children :)

It looks like the grandsons get along real well together!

Annesphamily said...

You are so cute!
Will you pray for Brinton and Shawn? Brinton was a ski instructor, who broke his leg and was fired from his job! Shawn had surgery in January. His foot is not healing and they want to amputate! Please pray!
