~ I Love a Sailor Boy~

It seems like since this new Love has come into my life I really don't have time to blog like I use to..Do I care ...Not really..You see it's been many years for me to have a baby so close by..Oh I have a ton of Great Grand kids last count 8 with one more due in May..But they all live out of state from me..So having this little guy only 4 miles from me has been just heaven for me!!I just love his smell his cute little giggles, the way he blows me bubbles..My Granddaughter Candace is an accountant so this is her busy time of year,and she works long hours so I get to keep this guy little a few days a week..Can you say Love it!! This week her day care worker has the flu so I get to have him for the whole week YIPPEE!!
I wished I could show you a fancy table I put together or a new spring mantle but I can't..I really haven't done a thing around my house ha ha!! When I have Landen I sit on the floor and just love and play with him all day ha ha!!
I told Len today I just hope I live for another 10 years so maybe this little guy will remember me and all the love his Gigi had for him..
I know my age and health are both catching up with me...But each and every day I give thanks that God allowed me this time with this little Sailor boy..sighs..
I so appreciate all the comments you left on my last post and really I will get back to all of you..Until then I will be sitting on the kitchen floor blowing liquid bubbles and seeing how many Landen can catch!!

Until next time from my mountain to yours,
Hugs and smiles Gloria

Hi Gloria,

The little sailor boy is just so precious and I can't believe that Landen has grown so much. Just seems the other day that I remember Candace was having her baby.

Have a lovely week

Gloria he is adorable! I don't blame you for letting everything else slide a bit. What could be more important than making memories with that little boy?! A little dust never hurt anyone (Lord knows I'm living proof of that one!) Enjoy your time with him! Hugs, Kat

Oh my gosh... he is adorable. I can see why you spend so much time with him. You know how I feel about my Bailey. He's going to be 11 this June, I cannot imagine not having him in my life. He's been with us as you know from the time he was born. I think about all the times he was Landon's size and wonder where all those days went. I'm sorry the sitter has the flu, but glad you get to keep him. lol Give him a great big hug from me... love ya girl. I'll be emailing to bring you up to date on things around here... hugs ~lynne~

Gloria,
He ia just adorable and you are so lucky that he is close to you so you can spend time with him. My mom was a GiGi too! That is what her great grands called her. I lost her seven years ago today,,,,,
Please stop by if you can and see my tribute to my Mom.

My oldest son's only recollection of my dad was sitting on the floor playing with him. My son was 4 at the time.My Dad dies when he was 5.

Hugs,
Debbie

Hi Sis...

Ahhh...your little sailor boy is just sooo adorable! Who could resist him? Hehe! That is a beautiful photo...what a handsome boy your little Landen is! Sis, I'm so glad that you are getting to spend so much time with him...it's memories in the making...that's for sure! And that's quite allright...everything else can just be put on the back burner...priorities!!! You know, I can just see you sitting on the floor with Landen...playing and lovin' on him!!! I bet Gigi has him spoiled rotten! Hehe!

Sis, I just now read the sweet note that you left for me. I haven't been up to much...in fact, I'm still fighting the fibro, etc. Not a biggie but I just haven't felt like doing anything...sooo...nothing has gotten done! I still haven't heard from Jenni. I know that she'll be coming...just don't know when. We had Darrin and Danielle last weekend so it was busy. Danielle is celebrating her "sweet sixteen" this week! Can't believe that she is that old. She was just six when I came here. They sure do grow up fast...soooo you just keep doing what you're doing with Landen!!! Well Sis...just wanted to come by to say hello and see how you were doing! Just remember that you have someone in Colorado that loves ya and is always praying for you too!

Love ya,
Chari

He is simply GORGEOUS, Gloria. Enjoy every single moment.
I finally was able to get your blog to download and stop freezing up my computer. NO idea what the problem was, but tonight it worked perfectly...
It happens every now and then.

Forget the mantels etc. We are content to hear about your little sweethearts antics! PERFECT blog material..and you can never run out of adorable photo's of him. He is photogenic as all get out!

Love and hugs,
Mona
