Lots of beautiful grandkids

Kevin and I were lucky enough to spend last Christmas with our sons and their wonderful families. Did I mention that I'm a grandma? It was so fun to see so many of our grand kids all at once. We had a blast at Joel and Tobi's with Alec and Cora. We were able to give the mom and dad a break and tend the two kids a couple of nights. Wow! did we ever have fun. We chased those two around the house for a couple of hours and hugged them nearly to pieces. Unfortunately they were so wound up, that they had a hard time sleeping. The next night that we had them, we wound them up again but then wound them down by having them help us vacuum the house. They slept lots better that night. It was so great to see Tobi with her man once again, and having Joel home from Iraq was the best.
We also spent several days with Jayson and Rachelle. For those of you who don't know me, I have quintuplets grand kids. Riley and Kaiya are Jayson and Rachelle's two older children and then they have Rustin, Ryder,Kassidy, Kaydence, and Kyndall. It was so fun. We've loved Riley and Kaiya for years and the quints have been a bonus I would never have imagined. one thing I've learned from getting kids-in-law and grand kids is that there is no limit to how much a persons love can expand. We loved every minute that we could spend with Jayson's family.
We held the babies every minute that we could and played games and told Rock Troll stories to the older kids. Jayson and Rachelle are among the truly amazing humans on this earth. You can't help feeling somewhat humbled by their CAN DO attitude.
Here we are with the Quints
I can't wait to return to Texas and see all nine of those grand kids once again.

If your definition of fun is chasing kids around the house and hugging them then you know where I live and you are always welcome. I promise you that Olivia will not disappoint.

Fun pictures! It's going to be so sad when they get big and all the grandkids won't fit on the couch anymore!
