This week at Gramma's

December 31, 2009 - Ryan and Collin spent some time here this week and we played some fun things. Ryan likes to play the card game "war" and "Uncle Wiggly". Can you remember that game? It is from the old days when I was a kid. Collin likes playing with the Army men and whatever toys he brings over. He likes "war" too and beats me every time. Here are 8 pictures to see.

Christmas Afternoon at Gramma's!

December 25, 2009 - Ryan and Collin got up at about 7:10 a.m. Christmas morning at their house. They came down stairs and were amazed once again this year at all the presents under the tree. They had a lot of fun opening them all and oooing and ahing over the things they got. In the afternoon they came to my house for more presents, a surprise bedroom and dinner. Here are 12 pictures below of Christmas at my house.

Our new bedroom!

Merry Christmas Alex

November 15, 2009 - Not a day goes by that I don't think of you Alex. When the stars are out I look for the brightest star and I call that my "Alex" star. I know that you are doing the Lord's work and that you are preparing the way for us. Your time on earth was so short and we all miss you so much. I know your mom misses you lots and sometimes she sees you in Adrian. I really believe you and Adrian still have a bond between you. We know this life here on earth is so short compared to the eternities and I know that someday we will all be together again. Watch over your mom Alex. She really needs to feel your gentle hand touch hers. I know this is kind of early, but Merry Christmas Alex. You are greatly missed and always in our minds and hearts. Love you lots.....Gramma Betsy

Trunk or Treat

October 28, 2009 - Annual Trunk or Treat at church. The kids played games, had a pumpkin contest in which Ryan won one of four categories. His pumpkin was an alien and he got "most scariest". His prize was a large candy bar. He was quite happy that he won. He brought his friend David to the event. Collin had fun playing the games. Afterwards they went trunk or treating, which is going around to the different cars (their trunks) trick or treating. It is always fun. Here are 8 pictures, but one is of Raygunn and Taisin.
