This is our oldest grandchild, Harrison.  He's eight.  This is him holding his cousin, our youngest grandchild, Cassidy, who is now three.


Harrison has been asking for a sibling for a long, long time, but it seemed like it was not to be. Several weeks ago HB and I got a bouquet of flowers delivered.  It was on a Friday afternoon and it was no one's birthday or anniversary or any other day of importance.  I opened the card and it said:

"Dear Happy and Pop,
I am going to be a Big Brother!
Love, Harrison

WOW!!  Harrison is overjoyed, so are his grandparents!


  1. Dear Harriet,
    So happy about your being grand parents again!

    I ran across this quote a few days ago and thought of you.
    "Promise me you'll always remember:
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
    -A.A. Milne, English Author
    Mary C.

  2. Mary, you are one of the sweetest women I've ever known.

  3. I love that the kids call you "Happy." I keep hoping that I'll have a grandchild someday and wonder what he/she will call me.
