We have been with DS#3 & DIL for a week now helping out with Jonah and the new baby, Eli.  Mostly, we're trying to keep Jonah occupied plus doing a lot of cooking.  Here are some pictures of this special time for  our family.

 Jonah having lunch in the camper with Grandpa - he wants to do it every day!
Eli today after having his weight checked - Yay!  he passed because he gained an oz. per day as instructed by the doctor.  He already looks fatter.

We took Jonah to a discovery play center while Mommy & Daddy took Eli to the Doctor.  Jonah notified everyone that the baby was at the doctor's!  He is talking a lot now.  I played a Ricky Tims "Jingle Bell" song and he loved it, so now he wants to play it several times per day!  I tried to link it, but it didn't work.  You can see it by going to You Tube & type in Ricky Tims Jingle Bells.  We'll be leaving here in a couple days and going to DS#2 to spend Christmas & Abigail's birthday with them.  I'll do another post when we get pictures from there.

Yesterday our oldest son, who is a pilot for Federal Express had a scare as he flew somewhere over the state of Oregon.  His plane was struck by lightening!  Fortunately, he is fine and was able to land the plane safely.  It was hit on one of the wings.  We'll find out more soon.  We're very thankful that he is fine.

Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends!


  1. What a sweetie little Eli is. And big brother Jonah looks like he's a good helper! I'm glad to know your son is okay, too. That sound scary, but I suppose is something pilots deal with regularly? And now I'm going to have to go find that Jingle Bells...

  2. How precious are those pictures of those who are so dear to your heart. I think little Eli favors his daddy a lot! Enjoy the rest of your time there, and also with those you visit next. I'm glad your other son was able to land the plane without serious problems; that must have been really frightening! Have a safe trip, and a MERRY CHRISTMAS! --"Love"

  3. What a great looking family, your pictures are great. It sounds like you are having a wonderful visit and enjoying your grandkids, spoil them while you can! Have a safe trip and a great time with your other son and his family, too. Glad to hear your son is safe and sound. Flying has it's drawbacks. Enjoy your family and Merry Christmas!

  4. It looks like Grandma and Grandpa are having a great time with both grandsons! Happy holidays to your and your family!!

  5. Hard to tell who is happier in the photos, you and grandpa or Jonah. LOL. Looks like you are all having a great time. Eli is a cutie.
