Photos from the Past Week

After a post, yesterday, containing a modicum of critical content, I revert to my old standby: photos. Since about all that we do these days is grandkids, that's exactly what all of these photos are about. Those who read Cuppa's blog will have seen a number of them already.


For some reason I am a popular guy.



For Valentine Day, Nikki Dee received a fairy princess outfit ...



... which seemed to be a hit.



Nikki Dee has taken on many jobs. One is of chief cook.



Another is of monitoring world events on the computer.



Of course, she's also a rock star ...



... and a hairdresser (or she would be a hairdresser if she only find some hair to work with).



Meanwhile, Zachary spends some time reading ...



... at least when he's not cuddling. Partly due to his health troubles, he's requiring an awful lot of cuddling lately. Nikki Dee likes to receive her fair share of snuggles too.



When we braved the fresh air, Nikki Dee thought she saw Sam chewing on snow (it was a snowy bone) and immediately offered him more.



Then, she surveyed her Olympic task with great concentration ...



... and did very well although I'm not sure that she owned the podium.



Zach's Olympic sport was waddling, in a suit that made him look that he was as wide as tall. I don't think he owned the podium either.



Recreational swinging was more his style. In fact, he really enjoyed himself.



Nikki Dee tried to help push the boy, but didn't quite have the knack yet. She kept getting too close with the swing knocking her over. Tough logistics for a two year old to work out.


Finally, Rockin their way into your hearts ...

Lovely photos and the music might still need some adjustment (at least according to one of my cats: no sense of music at all...), but she looks adorable while doing it.

And I think all children have a place on a huge big podium! So cute.

I enjoyed the photos and the captions. Also liked the previous post about the Olympics.

Cute kids! My god, are they testing for steroids at your mini olympics? I think Zachary must be taking as he is growing so unnaturally fast!

I just just awoke from a dream in which you had a fiddling show and were co-president of another, a variety show aired in Sudbury, called the Muppet factory. These were both wholesome shows that grew up mighty fine young viewers. I was one of them.

...I need more sleep!

take care
