Our little ones

This last weekend, with two days off from work, we drove to Bellingham, Wa. to spend a couple of days with part of our family. Our oldest granddaughter, LilliAnne, celebrated her seventh birthday and we had a special time being there to do just that!  Our littlest family members are twins and they add a great deal to the mix!                                           
At twenty months old and seven years old there is a sweet connection between the twins and their sister.  A gift of Lego's interested each of them and little sister, Talitha, had the good sense to watch with intrigue while her big sister created a tiny table. She then picked up a few pieces of Lego's and began her own building. 
A gift of crafting supplies stirred up a long sessions of creating!  There were so many fun and interesting things to explore in that box!  LA set out to "make" and the twins were mesmerized by handling each treasure. With our grandparent eyes (and hearts) we watched while they all played together.  This home has an atmosphere of freedom to create and explore!  It is a fun thing for them and I doubt if they will ever be bored! 
Our daughter likes to shop at consignment shops and once in a while she strikes it rich!  What little boy doesn't want a car garage? Wesley's interest in "zooming" cars down a ramp is endless! 

Puzzles make fun musical instruments and are just the right size for clanging together!

Our weekend went by quickly and now we are home thinking back over the time with our little ones.  The pictures tell us the story over and over.  We have great riches in our little ones! 

Happy Birthday, LilliAnne!! 

I am having a bit of trouble with posting due to technical difficulties.  It may be the same old thing.  The computer is dragging on and telling me it is tired and ready to retire!  We'll see how much longer we can make it keep on going!  The thought of setting up a new computer...etc. etc. is a hurdle! :) 


  1. What fun to see your grands! They are so cute. What a blessing to be within driving distance to see them, too.

  2. Soooo, soooo very, very sweet to see you grandbabies, Julene! Good luck with the computer woes... sadly, the things don't last forever, even though we wish they did. ;o) Happy Days ((HUGS))

  3. So precious. What a blessing! And here's hoping your computer has enough life left in it to get you through more than a few months!

  4. Beautiful children. I have 3 grandchildren and there is nothing like them.
    I noticed you like BSF. I too like BSF. This is my 7th year in it and it is the best study ever. I write about what I learn in a spiritual blog called "Walking in the Light" I invite you to follow.


  5. I love seeing the photos of the little ones! I remember that our boys owned one of those garages--so much fun to race those cars!
