Adult Night Out Christmas 2008

Without this bunch I wouldn't be a grandma at all! These photo's were taken on the evening of our Christmas adult night out with our grown children while all of the grandchildren were at my home with sitters having a cousin party of their own.

Our youngest grandson came along with us this year. He looks to be having a great time too while giving his aunt a hug during dinner.

My grown children and their spouses are an absolute treasure to me.  I couldn't be more proud of them for the values and integrity that they live by.  I am so grateful for the  productive and self reliant lives that they live and for the example they are to the next generation. They each take the responsibility of parenting and providing for their families very seriously. They also provide and give a lot of love and patience to their children which has nurtured very happy and secure grandchildren for me to love too!


  1. You are so AMAZING!!! I loved reading about all the fun things you do with your grandchildren. I had a mother who loved her grandchildren like you do. Sadly cancer took her at only 49 years old. I miss her greatly every day. Nobody loves and cares for you and your children the way a mom does. I fill so sad my children will not get to Know her more, but I fill so happy for grandchildren like yours who have a Grandma that loves them and spends time with them. What a treasure you all have. How blessed your children, grandchildren and you all are!

  2. Thank you for your kinds words. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I can't even imagine how much you must miss her. I lost my brother who was just 52 to cancer. He was taken from us and his grandchildren way too soon too.

    I only had one grandma that I knew and she passed away with cancer when I was young. My mother lost her mother when she was just eight years old so I never knew her.

    Life sure isn't fair sometimes but we all have to just keep going and somehow we find happiness and a way to make things better for the next generation.

    I do know how blessed I am to have the time and relationships that I do with my children and grandchildren.

    I wish you the best. Thanks for posting.

  3. I love your blog! You are a great great grandmother, you do such with them, and they are so blessed to have you! We need more grandmothers like you! God Bless You!!
