Three Days with the Sams!

Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend and paused to remember those in our Armed Forces who gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy.

Tara and Jamie attended a conference in Winston Salem last week (Thursday through Saturday), so EZ and I, with the help of Gigi and Nick, got to watch over Samuel and Samantha. We had so much fun! With two sets of twin grandchildren, we are usually trying to divide our attention four ways. It was a treat to give just two of them our undivided attention. I always slept at their house, but during the day we went between their house and ours...one of the perks of being next door neighbors. They always seems to be in motion, so the pictures are often blurry, but that's just the way two year olds roll!

At dinnertime, Nick got the seat of honor...in between the Sams. An Uncle's got to do what an Uncle's got to do. His face cracks me up!

I just love the mornings when they wake up all happy and take a few minutes to cuddle in Mommy and Daddy's bed!

 Soon they are up and ready for the day, which included a little dip in their pool, lots of playing, and an outing to Chick-Fil-A and PetSmart! Don't you just love their curls?

Our last day together was a Mickey and Minnie kind of a day! Samantha helped me make French Toast for breakfast. 

 After nap time I gave them a special treat...Swiss cake rolls and milk. Who doesn't love chocolate?

The time flew by all too quickly and before we knew it Mommy and Daddy were home. The Sams were very good and we had a great time together. Sure do love these two, and can't wait to do it again!


  1. Great job Grandma! These two adore thier grandma for sure! The Sams are fun to be around and you are 100% correct about thier constant motion. Love Grandpa EZ

  2. Samuel and Samantha are a JOY to be around. I wasn't there the whole time, but thoroughly enjoyed having just the two of them with us. I never tire of just watching them and anticipating what they will come up with next.

  3. Thank you so much for staying with them while we were away. I can tell that they had such a good time, and loved looking at all the pictures of your busy days! We all love Grandma, Grandpa (and Gigi!). Thank you again!
