Ain’t love grand?

Oh, can’t wait to share with sorority. It is so wonderful to see two people MY AGE so much in love! Just wonderful, real, happy pictures. I miss you, but know how busy we both are right now. I love you Parker and Bailey!!!! GBob

Janica, these pictures are absolutely amazing! I have to admit I could not fight back the tears (you know me). I looked at the happiness on Judy’s face today and I remembered a very sad, lonely face a year or so ago when Paul and I helped her move out of one home into another. My heart hurt for her then but I am so happy for her today! Loving someone and being loved makes such a difference in our lives. I hope Mike and Judy are as happy in 10 years as they are right now. What a wonderful life that will be!!

The pictures are beautiful. Best wishes for a happily-ever-after!

And They’re Off!

Knock ‘em dead, kiddos.

Aren’t they as cute as buttons???? I love the pigtails especially. My girls would never let me do that.

Rachael EarlSeptember 2, 2009 - 10:23 am

Oh my goodness-they are darling! Love the 2 different crocs :)

Jessica FikeSeptember 2, 2009 - 10:54 am

Your kids are so darn cute! I hope I have kids as cute as yours someday. :)

Gahhh! Can I steal them away from you for just a day or two?

Adam SquierSeptember 2, 2009 - 12:28 pm

I love the mis-matched shoes.

He’s got a bit of Punky Brewster in him. Courtesy of his mother. ;) (you should have SEEN me rock the turquoise and red Converse back in the day..)

GranbobSeptember 2, 2009 - 7:27 pm

Oh, he doesn’t hold a candle to you, babe! You had to have plaid and polka dots, mis-matched bows, etc. You were “Punky” to the max!!! It is hard for me to realize that my babies could be ready for school already! Unreal… Hope that Bailey will love it as Parker does eventually! I love you! Granbob

Gorgeous kiddos!!! :)

ElizabethSeptember 7, 2009 - 9:14 pm

Super cute kids! Gorgeous light and gorgeous blue eyes!

Bailey on the Brain

Tomorrow is going to be a doozie.

It is the first day of preschool.  Now Parker is an old pro – this will be his fourth year at the same school and he is all a-wiggle with excitement.   Alas, my sweet Bailey is another story entirely.  Bailey, whose infamous antics at the  gym child watch have forced me to abandon all fitness efforts.  Bailey, whose dramatic sobs at the church nursery send me scurrying to her rescue immediately following the sermon.  She’s attached to me, folks, and a forced separation can get downright UGLY.

And regularly scheduled sessions of ugly will commence tomorrow at 9:00 a.m.

Hang in there, baby girl.  You can DO this!

So in honor of the wee lass, I thought I’d take a moment to celebrate her finer points.  Such as…

Her undeniable fashion sense:


Her dainty,  subtle nature:

And, of course,  her downright cuteness:


A million peaceful wishes for you tomorrow, my perfect girl.  May the force be with you.

(and especially with your poor, unsuspecting teachers…man, are they in for it)

That is ADORABLE!!! My fingers are crossed! Let’s hope for the best!

Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst! Ha! :)

Well, her Granbob is always waiting in the wings if she needs me! I remember going with you to take Parker to his first day of school and you were so upset that he DIDN’T cry for you. Oh…when we get what we ask for….! I will be thinking about all three of you in the morning. I LOVE YOU ALL! GB
