We had a wonderful, but busy weekend. We started with a Chiefs game Friday night. It was a perfect night for sitting outside and enjoying a good baseball game.
Saturday morning my mom and dad joined us for a trip to Chicago for my cousin Deb's wedding. It was a good trip and so good to share such a special day with Deb and her new husband Ken.
After church this morning, Tom, Jen and Olivia went to Galva with us so Olivia could meet her Great, Great Grandma. There were five generations together--that doesn't happen too often. Great, Great Grandma was a little confused by the invasion, but she loved Olivia. She told us not to forget that she was "an extra great". I didn't get a great 5 generation shot--hopefully one of the others did!
On the car trip home, Olivia was very tired, but Papa entertained very well. Here is a little video of their fun and games.
I have been trying for an hour to get the picture link to post for the awesome WOW giveaway at http://rocksinmydryer.typepad.com/shannon/2008/06/thats-a-lot-of.html. I am new enough to blogging and apparently not computer savy enough to figure it out. At any rate, I am resorting to a post hopefully with a working link. Visit Rocks in my Dryer for details or http://www.wowonline.com/ to get a look at an awesome new CD. I'll keep working on the picture link--maybe I'll get it someday, but don't hold your breath.
Olivia and Annie had the best time playing the other day. They played for a good half hour with a piece of paper. Olivia loves Annie, but Annie is usually sort of indifferent towards Olivia. She is interested, but very cautious. They played and played and played on Tuesday and it is not Annie growling in the video--it is Olivia. She growled the whole time they played. She absolutely cracked us up.
About me--hummmmmm... I have been married for 35 years to the most wonderful, godly man. It is truly my joy to be his wife. We have two awesome kids--both grown and married to pretty terrific spouses. I am the secretary at our church and handle the Women's ministry. The most exciting part of my life is being grandma to our beautiful, spunky grand kiddos Olivia Grace, Ella Faith, Jacob Thomas, and Harrison Andrew. It is so much fun to have little ones in our house from time to time--and a blessing to savor the quiet again when they go home! Being grammy continues to bring a special kind of joy to my life that I can't quite explain and wouldn't trade for anything in the world!
