AND NOW FOR PRINCESS CAROLINE...our first and only granddaughter for three years until our population explosion of last year...that we all enjoyed! (and I will say right here that her mother would kill me for calling her "princess" anything. I was just using it for variety in the blog. Don't you think "princess" just goes with the name tho'?)
Anyway, she will be four on May 25! She is growing up to be a very lovely young lady. She has quite a variety of interests. She loves watching animal planet with her dad, snakes, dinosaurs, thomas train, reading, cooking with her Seattle grandma, playing with her friends, doing art projects...her interests are many. She also does gymnastics. She has quite a large vocabulary and is good at making up stories/imaginary creatures and LOVES the grand stories her dad tells her of wonderful inaginary places that have yet to be seen and discovered. She is no longer a baby OR a toddler, but a little girl. She is learning about the fruit of the Spirit now with her mom. Photo will be coming. I don't know how to get one off of shutterfly where I have many:(

HEEERE'S WALKER ...our first grandson, third grandchild. He will be one on May 31! He is a little sweetheart. Now that he lives "only" eight hours away, we are able to see him a littlemore often than we are able to get to Seattle to see our granddaughters. He is a very sweet baby. He has a look that will be a real ladykiller when he is older. It is a cross between "Aw, shucks" and "Hi, how are ya'". Add some dimples and you have one very happy, mellow, sweet boy. He is also very verbal--in syllables, not noises. It will be very interesting to see the direction he goes, along with our granddaughters, with their lives.
Of course, our chief concern is that they love God. Everything after that is gravy. Walker is on the verge of living up to his name--walking:) Right now, he is able to get around so fast crawling, that he isn't anxious to slow down to walk. He has two little teeth now. (The photo was taken when he only had one.)

AND NOW FOR QUINN...our second grand. I'll start with the birthday that is coming the soonest--April 30th--our sweet Quinn. It's hard to believe she has only been here a year! She has a mouthful of teeth and I'm told is running around the house. It will be fun to see her in about a month. I suspect she is similar to many second borns that I have known in that she wants to keep up with her older sister. She has quite a mischievous twinkle in her eye. She lives in Seattle with her parents and big sister. The verse on the quilt I made for her when she was born is Joshua 1:9-"Be strong and courageous...for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
