    Adrianna is growing up so fast! She will be 1 on Oct 26. She missed her grandpa's BD(my son) by 3 days. Nicci was so hoping she would be born on his BD. He is actually her step adoptive dad but he is the only dad she has ever known. And they have a great relationship. He drove back 5 hrs from a job site one time because she broke up with her long time boyfriend at the time and needed him! He had to make the 5 hr trip back to the job site the next morning. So he drove home just to console her! LOL I said just look at what you will do for your kids!! LOL Then 2 days later he had to make that same flying 5 hr trip driving back cause Tyler went in for appendicitus. It was a mad week for him!! LOL They may not be his by blood but they are his in every other sense of the word! He was 19 when he became their dad and they were 4 6 and 8. He has been a terrific dad and we are so proud of all of them! God has truly blessed us!

    Oh Rhonda, What cuties! Little ones grow up way too fast! My babies moved about 6 hours away, so I am "forced" to take a little trip about every 2 months or so. I just can't stand it!
    My darling DIL sends photos almost every day via e-mail. She is wonderful. And she shows pics of family to the little ones so they wont forget anyone. That way they aren't afraid to give hugs when we do get to see each other. You have a lovely family! Blessings

    Now you know why I am so busy! LOL!! I have grandkids every weekend from Fri to Sun. So my work time is limited. but I want to be a part of their lives and leave them with great Grandma Rhonda and Papa memories! I love that I have a hand in helping raise them! Now that the older ones are grown I have 6 that are 12 and under that I see each one once a month for a weekend and I am adding Alisha(DGGD) for the first time in 2 weeks. She will be 5 in Dec so she is coming when I have Rachel who is 8 and Devon and Daymon who are twins and are 6 almost 7. They will be a blast to have! Papa doesn't do noise real well and Devon and Rachel and Alisha are all screamers!! LOL Should be an interesting weekend!! Papa has noise reduction headphones just for this sort of thing! And he will need them!! LOL But he enjoys the kids too.

    My oldest grandson married Alisha's mom and brought Alisha into the family. So I haven't had a chance til now to include her.

    Rhonda, that's a lot of Grands!! What a joy for you and Papa, and when you all get together, it must be a real blast. I have four childen, Linda,55, Rick ,53, Todd 43 and Troy,41. Five grandchildren 32,21,17,8 and 5. And a wonderful daughter-in-law, Becca. We get together quite often as all live within 20 minutes of me, and the noise and laughter can be terrific. For awhile anyway, and then ahhh, peace and quiet!,LOL Enjoy your wonderful family!!

    Oh we do! My oldest Grandson was in a head on truck collision a couple of years ago now. He got a good settlement. they just bought their first house and are almost done fixing it up. they bought all new appliances and furniture. We went over the other day to see the house. I've been there twice now. It is huge!! 4 BD up and one down study LR large kitchen etc!! I so enjoyed it. This grandson just climbed Pike's Peak a couple of weekends ago for charity. It was really a hike but he had a great time. It is so much fun sharing in their lives!!
    God has definately been good to us!! I see all of our grands on a pretty regular basis even tho they all lead busy lives. My youngest son is the one I rarely see. He is busy and a loner like me so he doesn't feel the need to connect very often. But I get to see him when he and Angie bring the twins from time to time.

    My oldest grandson just bought his first home too. Now he and my daughter are busy painting, laying tile and excited as all get out about moving him in. His new home is 5 minutes from his mom, so she is very happy about that,

    Cody bought a house a block from his parents. They just got finally moved in this last weekend. They have repainted recarpeted new roof new wiring and I don't know what all. They are replacing the upstairs furnace. It was two apts at one time so there are two furnaces. The upstairs one is 30 yrs old and smells funny so they are replacing it. My son is an electrician with his own business and Cody works for his dad's co. So they know how to do all that. They had a crew come in and they resurfaced the two tubs to look like new. Cody redid the kitchen countertops himself so they did alot of it on their own but had to have some of it done professionally.

    They are so happy to be out of a small small apt. They have 2 little ones 2yrs old and 4 yrs old so it is great they have all this room to run now.

    when my youngest son got divorced, his wife got to stay in the large home he had worked on very hard himself, so it hurt like heck to move out of it. We purchased an old home at auction for him, until he could get finances all settled, AND HE TORE INTO THAT HOUSE, took everything down to the studs, removed walls, added a new bathroom, did all the tiling himself, new flooring, new windows, etc. He did all the work himself (with some brother help) and now he has a very pretty, up to date home. I think it is wonderful when these young men try doing so much on their own. My husband knew( sort of) HOW TO PAINT AND THAT WAS ABOUT IT. Now when we need something done, we call on the kids. Yea!!! I hope your grandson and family will be very happy in their new home.
