It’s the #Holiday #Season So You Know What That means….

Really cute children doing really adorable things!

If you’ve been with me at least since this time last year, these two cookie monsters might look familiar. Two of Baltimore’s finest little cooks are at it again for the 2014 round of cookie baking! I give you Granddaughter #1 (the eldest) and Great Nephew Ryder, ready for some cookie baking!

This is definitely a bit of a mixture of holiday cheers. I hope you enjoy them!

I’ve also thrown in a few unrelated bonus baby photos because…well…my grandbabies are so awesome!!!

Tuesday Evenings With Esme – Did You See The Full #Moon?

My oldest granddaughter, Esme and I had the best time last night, even though all she wanted to do was play the Jake and the Neverland Pirates app on my iPad. I was fine with that because it reminds me of Mario Brothers.

She handed me the iPad and said, “Here MomMom, I downloaded this for you. I don’t like the music. It freaks me out!” Mind you, she’s only four. Then she proceeded to observe as I ran the gauntlet over and over beating every level while she sat watching and covering her ears and only uncovering them to give me a high five for each level I beat.

Then I taught her something funny…well I thought it was funny anyway. Her grandfather told me I was bad. 😉

I told her when I took her home, for her to ask her mother if she saw the full moon and if she says no, to turn around and shake her butt and say, “Well now you have!”

SHE DID IT! That’s my grandbaby!

Of course she made me do it too! 🙂



A Post Dedicated to Grandfathers of Princesses

I often speak about my granddaughters.

How can I help it? They are my three little princesses, and my husband and I worship the ground their little princess piggies walk on. As much as I love the time I spend with them, I believe there is a very special bond between grandfathers and granddaughters.

I went through a year’s worth of pictures and that beautiful bond just cried out to be shared. Below are some of my favorite captures of my husband Wayne and our three darling granddaughters. I pity the man who someday comes along and tries to steal their hearts. He will not only have to meet Poppy’s approval but he’ll have to live up to an example of how these girls should be treated…like the princesses they are.
