Smiles and Stunts!

It’s not hard to get our little JJ smiling.

I popped over to the gymnastics gym to watch Addy in her class and was able to get some closeups of JJ.

Jaymison Joshua will be 6 months old on October 16th.

Parents and Grandparents can’t go beyond a certain point so I had to make use of some of the mirrors behind the warm up area to get photos of Addy on equipment that was out of sight.

She doesn’t hold back and seems fearless with exercise.

I have to admit that it made me nervous watching her climb up the ladder. When they get to the top they ring a bell.

We have a busy weekend ahead and we are so looking forward to having all of our people on this side of the mountains. A large pork shoulder is smoking on the Traeger for dinner tonight. It’s been smoking since 5 AM.

Our Canadian neighbors are moving into their Thanksgiving weekend. Happy Thanksgiving friends!

Speaking of Thanksgiving, here are some stanzas from some hymns that turn my eyes to what I’m so thankful for and hope for…

From Fairest Lord Jesus;

All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
Wondrously, Jesus, is found in Thee;
None can be nearer, fairer or dearer,
Than Thou, my Savior, art to me.

From Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts;

O Jesus, ever with us stay,
Make all our moments calm and bright;
Chase the dark night of sin away,
Shed over the world Thy holy light.

From What is the World to Me?;

The World is like a cloud
And like a vapor fleeting,
A shadow that declines,
Swift to its end retreating
My Jesus doth abide,
Though all things fade and flee;
My everlasting Rock-
What is the world to me?

  1. Precious photographs! JJ has the sweetest smile. I love Addy’s attitude about tackling all the exercises, etc. I know it is great fun to watch her learn! Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Such a blessing to having happy kids around! : )
    Addy looks like she’s having such a good time with her exercising. Maybe starting young she will continue all her life!

  3. JJ is so cute and he looks a lot like his big sister. He sure is a happy little guy. What fun to see Addy so active and enjoying her class. Just look at that face — pure joy!

  4. Beautiful grands. And I agree that JJ is looking more and more like his sister! Hope you are having a great weekend over there.

  5. The mirror pix of Addy are fabulous … perfect for the album I’m sure you’re keeping for her (probably electronically, for a modern baba!). . And JJ is a real charmer…. so wonderful you can spend this precious time with them … I’m so glad we lived near our three oldest grands when they were little (and when I stop to think about it in that way, it’s hard to believe that was actually 30 years or so ago) .

  6. Love your photos of happy JJ and energetic Addy!! Both of your grands are precious!!

    Wonderful words to close with . . . words to turn our hearts towards Him.
