Ain't life GRAND!!

I haven't shared any pictures of our grands for awhile, and after getting the latest batch of them from our son and daughter-in-law, I couldn't resist showing them off.  Look at that hair!  (Just like his Gramma and his Daddy at that age!)  He's 25 months old now.



And his ittle sister is so adorable, isn't she?  She's 4 months.  Wonder if she'll get the curly hair, too?  (He didn't until he was a year old).


I made them each a card recently, using some new Paper Smooches stamps I won a little while back.  I chose these just for the kids.  Here I added some googly eyes to the owls.


supplies: white cardstock, Paper Smooches Chubby Chums, October Afternoon "Fly a Kite" dps, Hero Arts CL309 Whoo Loves You, versafine onyx black ink, tumbled glass distress ink, colored pencil

And for her, this sweet little chickie, from the same set:


supplies: kraft and white cardstock, doodlebug designs petite prints, BoBunny  mellow yellow dot, colored pencils, Paper Smooches Chubby Chums, Hero Arts CL444 Sending Smiles (grass), versafine onyx black ink, green  and pink colored pencil

OMG Lin! Love these gorgeous photos! Ooh, that hair, so beautiful, reminds me of my daughter, she had major curls like that and they are all gone and she is only 5! Love your grand daughter, she looks so very happy! And those cards you made for them are so perfect, I am sure Mommy will treasure them for later on!

You are so blessed to have these precious little grandchildren ! The little boy resembles you,I think. Your grandaughter looks so happy.
I'm so glad you shared the pictures. I've been wondering how they must be growing a lot.
We can never imagine the love a grandchild will bring until we experience it first hand.

Michelle said...

WOW! I can't believe he is over 2 years old now! I guess it has been awhile since we've seen his little face! That is so cute that curly hair runs in your family!! C had curly hair when he was around 1 - 3, then it all disappeared and I was so bummed! Great choice of kiddie stamps from Paper Smooches! I'm really starting to like these stamps!

Diane said...
