Declan (our baby grand) and I made pigs in a blanket (he called them "twigs in the blanket) for his daddy and his Poppa.

Our children attended a "Dress in Your Favorite Decade Party" and here is their outfits.
They are rocking the '80s.
Fashion tip: If you are old enough to remember a trend, you are TOO old to wear it when it comes around again!!!
When I said, "Say cheese," this is how Grayson reacted. His mom said he thought I said "cheeks" and in "Where is your nose? Where is your mouth? Where are your cheeks?"
Is that adorable or what!?!?!?
Sweet Little Baby Tip-toes
Our little baby grand, Grayson, is one busy little boy. Since he began walking-at all of 10 months old-he has discovered that if he gets up on his toes, he increases his reach by about 1 inch.
Our Lion Cub
In order to bride (I know-not a good parenting or grandparenting technique!) the lion cub to keep his hat on I offered him a Puff treat so he would keep his hat on long enough to snap a picture. Does not make for good parenting, but it does make for good pictures.
He makes my heart roar with joy!
Declan stopped by for a visit. He and his Poppa had a cheese snack. As always, I had my camera in my hand.
I said, "Say cheese."
And he did!

So what are you investing in?
Taken in New Orleans during a stroll through the French Quarter.
Hang tough! Moss growing out of a plastered brick wall. This pictures speaks of endurance to me. Against the odds, the fragile fern fronds sinks its' roots deep into the unrelenting brick until it can find a hairline crack to anchor itself. With courage and determination, the tiny green sprouts unfurl and reach for the sun.
So it is with faith. Reach for the Son.James 1:2-4 says, "Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

My buddy Renae (Ray-Ray) works with me in our ministry, Standing Near the Cross. When the Baby Grands stop by, all things - work-related and otherwise come to a halt! Because babies don't keep. However, occasionally one of them wants to pitch in and give us a hand. Here Declan is helping Ray solve some serious ministry issues.
And this is Baby Gray a few weeks ago-before the fall weather hit.

Whoa Baby! Now, that's cute!
A boy and his dog.
Our baby grands love Gerber Puffs. These little cereal dissolve-in-your-mouth bits can entertain and distract our little guys for endless hours. Unfortunately a quick flip of the lid can spell disaster in the hands of a little one. The boxers spotted the impending disaster and positioned themselves in the midst of the fray.For more Wordless Wednesday click here and go to Extraordinary Mothers and click here to go to Wordless Wednesday.

It's Wednesday. But SUNDAY's coming!
Craig and I ate out for dinner at a charming bistro in New Orleans. This is what I ordered. Ice cream for dinner. Now that's my idea of a great meal!
Stop back by and play 5 Things Friday. This week we will write our 5 Best Travel Tips. See you then.
I am hosting an online Bible study for MOMS on the book of Ephesians called "High Stepping in Heavenly Places." Are you interested? Leave me a note in the comment section and I will send you the details. Blessings.
There are no words . . .
Grayson (13 months old)
Pillow Talk - Grayson spent the day with me. He is one of the happiest little guys I have ever seen-at least until I raised his daddy. His daddy was such a good natured child and has grown into an easy-going adult man. I can only assume Grayson will follow in his daddy's footsteps. Anyhoo, Grayson began to pull the pillows off my wicker furniture in the sunroom. And . . . like I care! Grandmothers generally don't care about anything grandchildren do as long as they don't get hurt!!! Can I get a witness? At any rate, Grayson began giggling and falling into the pile of pillows. I grabbed my camera and caught this mischievous grin on his adorable face! Is that cute, or what? Well, that is enough words for now. Blessings.
