Six, Yes, Half a Dozen

I have six grandchildren.Yes, I really do have half a dozen grandchildren. You have only seen pictures of two of them because in all honesty we don't see the older grandchildren as often nor do their parents send send regular up dates through pictures. This past week, however, I received via FaceBook pictures of two of the older kids. (And hopefully will get even more.)

The first is of Preston, the oldest grandchild, and his date for the Junior/Senior Prom. Preston is a great kid who is shall we say all boy raised in too adult of a world. He is his Grandpa's pride and joy and would be defended to the hilt by said grandfather. Spoiled, yes, but worth spoiling.

The second is Holliday, the first granddaughter. She is the sweetest, most patient, spoiled girl on the planet. It is easy to spoil her because of her easy disposition and loving, polite manner. I hope she never loses those traits.

I had a wonderful weekend. Got these picture plus had an impromptu date with Hubby on Saturday which was just a movie and dinner, but it was fun. Star Trek was fun, pure entertainment. All through the show we kept whispering to each other -- "Oh, that is this one or that one from the TV days." Then Sunday we had "our gang" over for grilled burgers after church. It was fun to visit without the roar of a restaurant in the background.

Preston and is date make a nice couple! I can see he is grandpa's (and I'll bet grandma's) pride and joy.

And Holliday, what a cutie pie she is; she doesn't look spoiled to me!

Sounds like you had a fun weekend!

We went to Star Trek on Friday night. We loved it! Of course, we are a couple of Trekkies from way back. I have decided that as soon as it comes out, I'm getting a copy for Mother. She will love it, too (I'd pay for them to go to the movies, but she told me that Daddy doesn't like to go any more. He's still sensitive to wearing oxygen all the time and going to places like that.)

Thank you kindly for dropping by and leaving your comment wishing Bud and me a happy anniversary. It meant a lot to me, truly. Happy Tuesday.

Your grandchildren look like really great kids. Sweet.

And you went to see Star Trek? Wasn't it great? Did you notice when they did the space jump down to the drill? The guy that died? He was wearing Red!!
