They Make Me Smile

I mean.  Seriously.  Can kids be any cuter than these two?!

Earlier this month, Kim and I spent a fun-filled weekend in South Carolina with our grandbabies Abram (3 1/2) and Lucy (19 months).

 

Ncgray-1

Nothing special on the agenda...just spending time together.

 

Ncgray-2

It was a much-needed respite from a busy schedule, time to just enjoy our grandbabies...

 

Ncgray-24

...and do lots of smiling!

 

Ncgray-3

I'd be lying if I didn't admit we did draw more than a few volcanoes...

 

Ncgray-31

With LOTS of fire and lava erupting out of them!  Abram has always had a fascination with all things fiery...volcanoes being his latest obsession.

 

Ncgray-85

Lucy draws " 'canoes" too.  What other little girls her age talk constantly about volcanoes???

 

Ncgray-30

And one of their favorite things to watch on TV is videos of erupting volcanoes. Kara's right...there is something relaxing and soothing about listening to the music and watching hot lava slowly meander across the screen...

Lucy-girl brought Gramaw coffee...

 

Ncgray-16

...and Abram was always grilling something(s!) for us.  We got him that grill for Christmas last year, and I'd say he's got our money's worth of enjoyment out of it.

 

Kewpie doll Ncgray-6

Those of you who are old like me will remember the Kewpie dolls.  We have our very own LIVE Lucy-Kewpie!

Oh goodness!  Help me...my mind just flashed forward 15 years...I can SO see a teenage version of this girl!

Abram "helped" Kyler and Kim put the Christmas wreaths and lights up on their house.

 

Ncgray-29

Quite the helper he is.

 

Ncgray-14

Girlfriend likes to climb in boxes!  After, of course, she's dumped out all of the toys.

 

Ncgray-33

Ncgray-80

Not sure who's having more fun...Abram or Papaw?!

 

Ncgray-40

My view from the backseat...

 

Ncgray-41

We did a little family photo shoot nearby...you'll see those photos later.

 

Ncgray-43

It was a beautiful fall day...nice to get outside for a few minutes.

 

Ncgray-49

Two of my loves...

 

Ncgray-51

Be still my heart!

 

Ncgray-61

Ncgray-63

I cannot handle that ponytail!

 

Ncgray-74

Or that outfit...

 

Ncgray-75

Keeping an eye on a hawk...

 

Ncgray-72

...that was hanging around their backyard all weekend.

 

Ncgray-86

"Where are your fingers, Lucy?"  This sweet finger-crossing is always her response.  Too cute!  And long, flexible fingers too...

 

Ncgray-89

What's good enough for big brother...

 

Ncgray-88

...is what Lucy wants/ask for demands too!  Who wants a sippy cup when you can have a BIG cup?!

 

Ncgray-38

These two...

 

Ncgray-34

They make me smile.
