Papa and Beau

Someone e-mailed and said, "Where are pictures of Grani and Beau?" Grani, first of all, usually doesn't let me take her picture and secondly, I get in trouble if I put her picture up here, so you will rarely see pictures of her here.

And look at this! Our Tennessee readers will be amazed that I only paid $2.56 for gas!

Tumbleweed Fun!

Just a swingin'

Beau needs a little bit of time in the bright light. I'd tell you why but then I would have to know how to spell a very slight case of jaundice. Since he was awake I took some pictures.

Gibson drew a picture of Beau in his swing. Looks just like him don't you think?

A Verrrry Looooong Day

Our very long day started just 3 hours after we went to bed. (Click here to see our Roller Coaster news day)

First we went to the hospital a little after 7:00 AM to see our beautiful new grandson. We only got to see him for about 15 minutes. We could have picked him out of a hundred babies since he looks just like the others.
His name is Beau Ryder Littleton.
Then we went to my mom's house to see her.
Then we went to the soccer field for Gibson's (my first grandson) 9:00 game.
After that it was just a wild day mostly at mom's house and a trip to the funeral home and to the cemetery and back to mom's for lunch and we tried to get in a nap at Andrew's house and then back to the hospital (got to see Beau for a whole 10 minutes that time) and back to mom's and tons of relatives were stopping by and with keeping 7 little ones happy all day...
It was a looong day.
Here they are at lunch. There are my 5 grandbabies and 2 of my nephews - Isaac and Asher (who are 3 and 1). Wheeeee! It's been fun and emotional and long and we are exhausted.
Beau comes home tomorrow, so we'll get better pictures.

Adoption Day!

Today is Banjamin's Adoption Day! Here is a picture from Sept. 07. (I'll have to look for newer pictures when I get home.
Benjamin is such a wonderful little boy. He is all hugs and smiles and kisses. He has brought a lot of joy to our family and he definitely is Papa's buddy!

Grani calls him our little brown bear. We are so glad God brought Benjamin to us.
