Oh, that Ruby and Katherine! They are just so sweet together. I remember seeing Katherine in the nursery department as she and her daddy waited in the hallway for the teacher to get there. I noticed her because she was the only other little girl that didn’t have any hair. It was a comforting fact as I dropped my bald-headed baby (and eventually toddler) off each week. Then, later, I met Katherine’s mama, Mrs. Mary. She is one of the most kind-hearted gals I know! I am so thankful the Lord brought our girls together; I am just as thankful to have Mary as one of my closest friends. She is such a blessing to me. Their whole family is, actually! Mack has Ben, Ruby has Katherine, and Molly and I share Mrs. Mary; when the men are together they talk real good, too. 🙂 We love the Koesters.
Aren’t these girls precious? Only one more week of handwriting class. I can’t believe it is over! Ruby’s writing has greatly improved (thanks, Mrs. Heather!).
And, LOOK, they both have hair now. Katherine’s is in a ponytail…she is working on Barbie-length hair!
PawPaw and Sweetie (my parents) came to visit us last Thursday on their way to Alabama and then stopped back by on their way home from Alabama. The kids always love seeing them. This time the love between Mack and PawPaw grew even stronger.
This is where it gets border-line sick. PawPaw caught a big bass while in Alabama, and my mom had the picture blown up and framed (that part isn’t the sick part)….so while PawPaw was upstairs getting ready, Mack kept pointing to the picture and saying, “See PawPaw, see PawPaw.” My mom took the picture and sat it on the floor for Mack. Mack just sat and looked at the picture of PawPaw.
Then, he showed PawPaw his “hot dog” (aka Mickey Mouse in most homes across the world).
And then, Mack read a book to PawPaw’s picture.
It was hilarious. He loves Big PawPaw. Alot!
Of course, there was no love lost between the girls and PawPaw……
And no love lost between Sweetie and Mack. She knows the way to his heart. Frosty, anyone?
And the girls had their fair share of Sweetie-time, too! Sweetie must have told Molly a hundred stories.
And no visit with Sweetie would be complete without some gifts….so off to Wal-Mart we went…….Thank you, Sweetie, for all the fun stuff!
While I know this probably just spoils the children, it has been nice to have them entertain themselves with their new toys while I blog about them. And now I hope to get in a couple more loads of laundry and to make a few beds until they get bored again!
It is always fun to hang out with Sweetie and PawPaw! We will miss them until the next time.
