HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY



I hope that all the Mom's out here have a great day. And I want to send my love to the special mom's in my life, without them I wouldn't be the man that I am or the Pawpaw I want to be.
I hope that today is extra special for you and I hope you know how much I love you.




And I hope that everyday is special for you, not just Mother's Day. Your kids have the best mom they could have and are lucky to share this day with you.




So Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's in my life, I Love You and hope you enjoy your day -


Pawpaw

HE HAS RISEN...



Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;

Death is strong, but Life is stronger;

Stronger that the light, the dark;

Stronger then the wrong, the right;

Faith and Hope triumphant say

Christ will rise on Easter Day. - Phillips Brooks

Spring Has Sprung...Let's Start Having Fun!!

After this past winter we all are looking for some warmer weather, some sunshine and happier days ahead. Nana and I have come out of our cave and begun our Springtime stretching...trying to get the cobwebs and dust off our old aging bodies.We enjoyed the winter days and nights playing with our grandkids...they make even the coldest, darkest day seem brighter and warm. "Little Man" has grown over the winter months and has turned into a toddler...where did that little baby boy go.
Now it's Rocket time, cars, upstairs to the boys playroom, and a lot of meaningful discussions about everything. He is joy to our heart and puts a smile on Pawpaw's face everytime I see him.

And how tall is Maddy going to be..she has sprung up 6 inches over winter...I swear it's true. Our little princess has really taken off in the growth charts. Soon she will be talking up a storm and then her dad and I will be chasing the boys away.
She's gonna be a heart breaker for sure...poor boys ain't gotta chance. And she developed a bunch of new tricks...how to open and pull out 30-50 wet wipes in 10 seconds, how to unravel 30 feet of floss in 5.3 seconds and how to put make-up on while no one is watching....fun stuff for sure, but then she just looks at you and you forget all of the mess and just take in her beauty.

And coming this fall we will be adding a new chapter to Pawpaw's Wisdom...we are expecting our 3rd grandchild, the stork is suppose to deliver her around the middle of September. So we are thinking in pink and gathering up our next load of newborn baby supplies for Nana and Pawpaw's house. We have been blessed with 2 beautiful grandkids already and know we have lots of love to give another grandchild. Just the thought of chasing 3 kids in 3 different directions is already tiring me out...I better go rest...I think I'm gonna have a busy summer and a very busy fall. Thanks for stoping by and remember to hug your kids, your grandkids and your furbabies too. A hug goes a long way to someone's heart and lets them know you really, really love them. Hugs to everyone and let's go outside and plant something...it's Spring...time to start the garden..now where's my gloves and my seeds...time for Pawpaw to go play outside.

Happy New Year to All


It's been a wild 2010...up's and down's as life has been kind one minute and mean the next. But through it all I have been blessed with 2 beautiful grandkids. They have made my life so much fuller and happier. Even on my worst day they can get me to smile and feel so loved. When I look at their pictures I see how much they have grown and how much I enjoy watching them grow.
Whether it's a picture of Ryder looking for pumpkins on a fall day...
or a quiet moment with my granddaughter, Maddy at the pool...I see my mom in Maddy's eyes....such beautiful eyes she has. Hi Mom...I know your in there somewhere.

My grandkids have made 2010 a good year...let's hope 2011 will be even better.
So from Pawpaw and his beatiful granddaughter and handsome grandson we want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and may 2011 be better for all of us..especially our children and our grandkids.

And Maddy would like to wish everyone to smile a little more and love one another a little more too. Who can refuse those beautiful eyes...come on people do it for Maddy. Call your old friend you haven't talked to in awhile, or that relative you been meaning to call but have put off....let's make 2011 the year to improve the world and make life a little more better for all of us.
HAPPY NEW YEAR from Pawpaw and may God watch over each and everyone of you and your families. I hope you will come back next year and visit with me again.

HAPPY "1st" BIRTHDAY MADDY


Well, the big day has finally arrived...my granddaughter has turned the corner and is headed to toddlerhood. My little Maddy is "1" today and just as beautiful as she was the day she was born, but then I'm her Pawpaw so I might be a little prejudicious.
She is that beautiful angel who came into my life just a year ago. I have been able to watch her grow from a little bundle of love into a pre-toddler and soon a full scale toddler, always on the go.She seems to be a very vocal little girl....talking, humming and singing all the time. Soon she will be trying out for "American Idol" and I will spend all night calling in and voting for her, because she deserves to win everything she tries out for. But I'm her Pawpaw and I might be a little prejudicious about whatever she does."HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADDY", I Love You and wish your day be very special for you. As special as you are to me. Now go eat some cake and smear it all over the place...like a good little girl should do on her birthday. And tell them "Pawpaw said I could".
