Grandkids are the greatest!!!

I have been in Starbuck now about three weeks and I can hardly believe how fast the days are going by. I am having so much fun. It is hard not to share some pictures of my adorable grandkids so get ready...

Owen just relaxing...he seems to be a very content little guy so far.

He has beautiful blue eyes and really is alert for only a week old.

Here comes Ellie to visit Grandma in her little one room house. Tom and Jennifer's house is the little yellow one behind Ellie. It has been great for her because she can just come over and get me when she gets up in the morning.

Ellie standing by my little house. My dear husband calls it "the mother-in-law house":)

The first week I was here I could smell a skunk everytime I walked near my new house. It was a bit odd but I thought maybe a skunk had sprayed a dog or something near there and it left a strong smell. The other day I was talking with the owners and mentioned that I thought maybe a skunk had been around. He just grinned and said it is over here...

...these are the culprits...they planted something called a skunk plant. I could hardly believe someone would want that delightful smell in their yard but I guess it would keep people away. They do smell awful and if you touch them you will not be welcome around my new grandson:)

Ellie still in her PJ's coming to get Grandma.

Reading books in my little house.

We sure have fun together.

This is what the weather looked like last week. It didn't last long though.

The day Owen arrived at home.

"Big sister", Ellie, helping to change Owen.

Ellie and Grandma have had some busy days together...

Sidewalk chalk has been so much fun. We were tracing our shadows here.

Ellie drawing on the sidewalk.

Going to swim lessons.

Oh my, does this ever bring back memories:)
Ellie is enjoying the water and really likes her swimming instructor.

Baking cookies with Grandma and really enjoying the dough too.

Building some wonderful things with her blocks...

Her train set takes up the whole little livingroom in their tiny house but we had fun with it anyway.
That's all for now...
Grandpa arrives on Saturday and it will be great to have him here with us for a few weeks.
