My Sweet Grandchildren

I just had to show off my grandchildren to all of you. They have grown so much. The first is Theresa who is 9 and growing in leaps and bounds. We wear the same size shoe, so she is trying to raid my shoe closet. She was born the year I had my first surgery and I had surgery 2 weeks again before she was born, so I never really got to hold and cuddle her except in my lap, but we still bonded and we are very close. She loves to do crafts with me and she learns fast.
This is my first born grandson and I am 5'1", so you can just imagine how tall he is for a 13 year old. He will be 14 in August on the 14th and is going to his first dance next week. They are having an 8th grade graduation dance and the little girl is actually being driven 150 to meet him again for the dance.

These are my 3 generations. Al, Jonathan, and Jacob. It won't be long before he will be as tall as Al if not taller. The doctors think he will be over 6 ft, but he is more interested in music than sports and that's fine with me.
Here is my little man all dressed up for his Band Concert. He is going to break some hearts for sure. The doctors don't want to remove the mole from his face until he has finished growing, but he wants it off now, but since it's not up to me, I keep my mouth shut.
Here is the smile we all love. His teeth have come in straight except for one, but they are leaving it alone for now in hopes that it will fall into place, but he does have beautiful teeth and a beautiful smile. I guess you can tell I am very proud of these 2  and of all my children. I am just happy that I finally got some redheads in my family. My oldest son has a touch of red, but not much. Will post new pictures of them later.These gifts from God is what keeps me going and not giving up on life.  Have a great weekend. Love and Hugs, Pat

Nice to see you with your grands. I'm lucky to see Colton weekly as they grow so fast. At 10 weeks, the changes are noticeable week by week. As they get older, it is their knowledge and social activities that change so quickly.
