Beautiful children. I love the little charmer with the green fingernails. Does that mean she is destined to be a gardener?

I have a four year old grandson who lives in the Tulsa area, and he's expecting a little sister around Xmas. So I will be seeing my "baby grands" real soon!

marmee said...

ca girl,
i was pleased with the article although a few of the stories got mixed up. but what a sweet tribute to dave and my family. it was a great idea so the kids could read it and not have so many questions about dave.
it was an unexpected pleasure to be able to meet you tonight.

marmee said...

it is nice to watch others and enjoy there grands until you have some for yourself. take notes it will help, lol. hope to see you at f/market.

marmee said...

well brenda that is something to be looking forward too! have a wonderful time with your grands and congrats on the newest baby. how exciting!

Frances said...

Hi Marmee, I love your little grands. They give such great meaning to our lives. I love the green fingernails too, a fashion forward princess no less. We have three grand boys ourselves. And they call me GG. ;->

Meems @HoeandShovel said...

Hey Marmee,
That first photo is classic contemplative Grace. She is so adorable. It was so fun to see some of your grands this week in person. The grands add a dimension to our lives (as I'm watching one of mine this minute playing with his Papa) that is difficult to imagine until it is experienced. Yours are ALL beautiful as are your teens!...and your adults.
hugs, Meems

p.s.
Like that new header today... apples from the farmer's market?

marmee said...

frances,
my grands are amazing!
her mother was cleopatra with green nails so little sleeping beauty had to have hers too.
my mom is gigi-greatgrandma.

marmee said...

meems, thank you! i am glad you were able to catch up with most of my clan. i am sure you are glad to be home, too.
those apples are from the market!don't they look delicious?!
