Kids Say the Dardest Things and More Life

I was reminiscing... remembering some of the best lines handed over to me from kids. Take, for instance, my nephew Troy. A sweetheart of a young man and always has been a sensitive guy with a huge heart. When he about 5 or 6 he got into a scrape with another relatives son. His parents were not sure how to handle it. He came up to me and he said " Auntie, he laid a lie on me. He laid a lie on me and my mom and dad didn't know if they should believe me."  He was quite upset and extremely dramatic. I told him I believed him and his mom and dad were torn because you hate to have a phamily rife over a squabble with the kids. He was grateful to know that I really cared and he knew his mom and loved him dearly too. Troy and Colton a long time ago....

Nick and Colton at Thanksgiving 2017.
Nick and Colton at Noelle's wedding August 27, 2000. When Colton was a small boy, as seen here, we were attending CHRISTmas Eve services. The church was silent as the children proceeded to their sits while carrying lights to light the way for Jesus's coming. Colton was next to me and tugged at my hand. Loudly he proclaimed, "Grandmother, when is Jesus and His Father going to get here?" The church congregation burst into joyful chuckles. Today Colton is daddy to very beautiful boys. My goodness time slips by so quickly.
PaPa Avery with his buddy. Colton gave this little fellow his grandfather's name as a middle name. He is so proud.

I thought Sandee and the folks at Aw.....Mondays would enjoy these puppy shares.
Love is....your rock. I believe everyone has a rock. My sweet hubby is mine.
A bit of Monday morning humor in case you are stuck in traffic.
Today is this birthday boys numero uno. Daddy has the day off so he was enjoying some cartoons. His favorite: Todd, Toot and Tizzy from the Baby Channel. We all think they are creepy but the little ones think they are first rate. Happy Birthday Handsome! Number One looks good on you.
Tomorrow I will share lots of birthday fun with the birthday boy, Numero Uno.

How much better the world would be if we had more families like yours.

I just love the photos. Children and babies are wonderful. But they grow up so fast. My daughter and I were just talking about this. When we are raising our children, time seems to take forever to go by. Once the kids are all grown, we realize just how quickly the time really did go by. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
