Grandparents Day 2009

Our boys are lucky.

Really lucky.

They have Grandparents spanning from one side of the country to the other, and a few in between. I recently asked them about all of their Grandparents (with includes their Grandparents, Great-Grandparents, and “adopted” Grandparents) and this is what they had to say:

Mom: “What is your favorite thing about ______? What makes them so special?”

(In geographical order, from farthest away to closest)…

Grandma Teetsie (Terri)

Jack: “She talks to us on the phone.”

Michael: “She writes to me on facebook and e-mails me.”

Papa (Grandpa Al)

Jack: “We can go fishing with him.”

Michael: “He takes us fishing.”

Grandma Dawn

Jack: “She makes us orange juice… the fresh kind”

Michael: “She makes us root beer floats.”

Grandpa Mike

Jack: “He can do magic!”

Michael: “He takes us in the pool.”

Great-Grandma L.

Jack: “I like to play pool at her house.”

Michael: “I love to play with all the legos at her house!”

Grandma Sharon

Jack: “We pet her doggie (Watson).”

Michael: “She writes XOXOXO on all of our cards.”

Grandpa Ralph

Jack: “He has a ponytail.”

Michael: “He goes swimming with us.”


Jack: “She lets me have candy when she babysits.”

Michael: “She tells me that I have to go to school to get smarter than the teacher.”


Jack: “He plays Wii with us”

Michael: “He chases me with his motorcycle.”

So, Grandparents… Thank you for giving our boys so much love and making them feel like they’re the only 5 and 9 year-olds in the world. We love you.

    Hi Becca!

    I just thought I’d come by and say hello this morning and saw the pic of you with your running friends. From the background I thought it looked like a park I used to live by in Tucson. So I poked around the blog and bit an realized I might be right!!!

    I lived in Tucson my whole life (until 14 years ago when I moved away. We did live there (breifly) but moved again a year ago.

    So sorry to hijack you Grandparents day post.

    Happy Monday!
