Leaving Town

Or rather going to town to stay. We are going to stay with my Husband's grandmother, Dorothy, for the next three days. We call her Gram. She lives by herself as her husband, Roy, or Granddad, passed away around 7 years ago. Its nice to go stay with her. Its easy and comfy. Everything is always the same at her house, cups are in the same place they have always been, your welcomed to help your self to anything in her fridge or cupboards. And if you ask to have something she's almost offended you would even dare to ask:-)
This is the woman who most made me feel at home when we first moved to Texas 5 years ago.

She just has a way about her. Although she is set in her ways she is always up for a conversation about anything. A Christian woman and definitely a Texan. One of the things that I just love about her, is the fact that I know without a doubt she always has the best interest of her grandchildren and great grandchildren in mind.

So we are staying with her thru Saturday. Maybe going out to the lake to feed the ducks and really just spending time. We also will be visiting their other set of great grandparents. I feel my kids are very fortunate to get to have a relationship with their great grandparents.

Gram is the one on the right, next to her are two of her sisters. She was one of 9 kids!

And this is Joyce (or Grandma on Russ' Dads side). She is the one who believes her grandson, Russ, could do no wrong! LOL
But she loves her great grandkids, loves her girls!

Okay back to cleaning the kitchen before we leave.

I hate coming home to a dirty house, so Iv got to clean now.
