PopPop's assistant

Heading out for a hard day's work...
Let's do this, PopPop!

How about lunch?

Roy Rogers? Yes!!!
Quittin' time already?

I'll just have the mashed potatoes, please.

I'm so full----no more!
All in a day's work...

Tegan can blow a raspberry!

Need I say more! Just one of her many talents, but now she performs this amazing feat upon request! She loves spending time in her high chair. She sits with us at the dinner table and spends time in the kitchen. She has mastered the sippy cup, holding it high enough to drink her juice! Sunday, she helped me bake zuchinni bread and cake, providing moral support by shaking her plastic measuring spoons and throwing measuring cups across the kitchen!

Wiggly, Jiggly girl

Tegan loves to make funny noises,
so when Noah shakes her up, she makes sure she makes funny sounds!

Princess Tegan's new throne

Thanks Nan and DadDad for Tegan's new high chair! There was a chair that would have gone great with my dining room, but this one was sooo cute, plus it has a blue tray with food compartments that you can put into the dishwasher and it has a cool toy! Tegan enjoyed avocado and french fries for dinner as her first meal. I can't wait to roll her into the kitchen when I'm in there cooking. I can give her plastic measuring cups and spoons to play with. Shannon, Taylor and Noah made a wonderful dinner last night, so maybe Shannon will start cooking and have Tegan in the kitchen with her! Well, A mom can dream :)
Please enjoy the video of the princess below!

The bluest eyes

Tegan has the biggest, bluest, and brightest eyes I think I've ever seen. They dazzle in the sunlight. I hope they never change color...Don't you just love this face?


She's just so darned cute!


Well, Shannon and Brandon have been to all their classes and both seem to like their teachers. Best of luck to both of you and may you learn alot and excel!

Bye Bye Bumbo!

Today will be Tegans last day in her bumbo chair! Thank you Nan and DadDad for buying a new high chair. Noah is assembling the new chair so I'll have pictures tomorrow!

Tegan in a box

Tegan is sitting in her toy box because all of her toys are on the floor! She zips and zooms in her walker, picks toys up from various places and chews on them. Afterwords, she tosses them! Such a busy little girl!

First day of school

Today is the first day of school. Shannon will take night classes at FCC and Brandon will take morning classes at FCC. Note to my kids: Make the best of college---your grades will effect your future! Aim for A's! I am proud of
you both as is the rest of your family! We are expecting great things from you both!

See Tegan's two teeth and they're razor sharp! She has two on the top and one on the bottom! Actually, another one is pushing through on the bottom! The good thing is now there is less drool :)

Tegan can Swim!

Tegan just loves her new pool and she is very comfortable in the water.

Shannon is so artistic!

Check this out! What a great idea!
My daughter is soooo talented. Hmmm, this would look great in a scrapbook!

Tegan can wave!

Tegan can wave at 7 months! (She's so smart!)

See the smile

See the smile
that wins my heart
each and every day
The rain is gone
the clouds disperse
when Tegan comes to stay!

Hello all!

Welcome to my journey all who enter here.

I have started a blog so that all can read about and see pictures of my adorable granddaughter, Tegan, as well as my entire family. I have to say that, being a grandmother is such a joyous experience and I am so thankful to my daughter for having her! I can speak for my husband, Bryan, as well, because having Tegan with us has brought us unspeakable joy and laughter. We are like two kids in a candy store every minute we get to spend with her. Oh, yes, and we can dote! There's not a burp, toot, smile, feat or face that we don't ooh and ahh over. Why is having a grandchild so different from my own children? I honestly don't know. I loved and nurtured my babies like mad, but somehow this little girl has turned me into an obsessive, lunatic crazy woman, squealing and clapping and singing and raspberrying 24/7! Every day is a journey. Every day I laugh. Everyday I thank The Lord for my children and my grandchild. I am a happy girl!
