    Congratulations, Bill. She is one pretty baby. Your daughter looks great, no worse for the wear. I assume the grandsons have returned home and quiet has returned to your valley...

    Yes, quiet descended upon us like a ray of sunshine yesterday.
    I talked to my son-in-law earlier today and asked if I could pick up anything for them on my way home tonight. His response - "Earplugs!"

    some beautiful pictures of your grandchildren. What a blessing for you all.
    My sons are only 19 & 21 so they have a bit to go before they have kids. if they ever do. :)

    Such fun! Had to watch 3 year old grand daughter while parents spent a night away to celebrate their anniversary. She stayed up way later than I would have liked, then woke me at 4 am to read her a book. I need a nap.

    My son is 24 and such a geek... I'm fairly sure he's interested in women but apparently he's not ready to do anything about that. My daughter is 22 and has been dating for years. The current boyfriend seems pretty decent. Odds of grandkids? Only time can tell...

    Sounds like we were on the same life track. I have 2 sons. The oldest turns 24 in a month and the other is 22. Also, no apparent grandkids on the horizon for us and no apparent serious relationships at this time. Given their current focus in life (24 year old likes to socialize more than working and the 22 year old works more than socializing), I'm happy to wait.
    ... but I love seeing everyone else's adorable grandchildren! <3

    I have mentioned before....and it still holds true....My children have informed me all my grandbabies will have 4 legs and a tail. There is still time.

    I have 4 children age 28 to 37 and only one grandchild and none on the horizon. I will just have to spoil her rotten and give her back to her parents, lol.

    My son has two children, his 19 year old step-daughter who we all love like our own, and their 10 year old son, who looks just like him. They moved to CO two years ago and I miss them all like crazy.

    My oldest daughter will never have children, she got all the unfortunate genes in the family gene pool and has terrible asthma and severe allergies, and refuses to take the chance of handing them on to another unsuspecting child. Makes me sad.

    Our youngest daughter (age 35) is getting married in September and plans on starting a family the day after the wedding......LOL. She may have some issues conceiving so we'll be being patient with that. She's a big wig in her company and is a little nervous about stepping away from the career to have children but it's something she really wants and so I'm sure she'll figure it out. Her husband is a geo-physicist with his own lucrative career but as she makes more money, he's offered to be a stay at home dad if needed. A really nice guy!

    They also live in CO. She went there for grad school and never came home....(:

    All of your pics are adorable! If I knew how to put a pic up I would......LOL, but I do have one in my profile pics!
