Blessings Times TWO…


When Daddy has to go out of town for work, Mommy and Little Man love to spend a little time visiting the dogs at the Pawn Springs Dog Park.

Of course, they invited Grammie and Papa to go along to enjoy the experience with them.

Don’t you just love the look on Little Man’s face when one of the dogs comes up to greet him?

How about the look on the furry one after he accomplishes his goal of a kiss, look at his smile. Hilarious!


Here are a few of the cuties we enjoyed…




Here is our “Furry Friend” Sir Dalton along for the journey.


This is one of the greatest dog parks I have ever seen. We are very blessed to live so close to it and enjoy all what it has to offer.

Little Man was just tickled with the whole experience as usual.

Did you wonder what the title of the post means, Blessed By TWO?…well hold on to your hat my friends.

Little Man is going to have a Baby Brother or Sister in March!!! Can you believe it?

This means Grammie and Papa are going to be blessed with TWO new grand babies within a six week span next year. Oh be still my heart!!!!!

Can you believe…years ago both of our daughters said, “We are NEVER EVERย having children!” Smile…

I am so glad they changed their minds, aren’t you?

Chuckle for the day…Little Man’s Daddy was talking to him during lunch the other day about being a big brother. After the conversation, Little Man says, “So after I eat my food and take a nap, then I will be a big brother?” Daddy chuckles…”Well, not quite that fast my man.” “These things take some time.”

The innocence of children…no wonder they are such a delight.

  1. Such wonderful photos, Laurie! Congratulations on your upcoming double blessing! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You’ve captured some cute dogs, too! I love that — Will I be a big brother after I eat and take a nap! Too adorable! Oh, if we could just bottle and sell that innocense! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Those are great photos! I must say, Sir Dalton looks a lot like my little pup (actually an older stray, but very loved) on a good day after a bath.. ๐Ÿ˜€ I love the expressions of the dogs compared to those of your little man. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. A big congrats Laurie, how wonderful for you. Great pics here again. Would the first dog b a Whippet by any chance?

    CONGRATULATIONS !!!! you guys are moving right along with the Grandparent life and know you are LOVING it! That is the BEST!!! You will be VERY busy, but the best kind of busy ever!! Just think of all the cowboys and cowgirls you will have to suit-up!! Save your $$$$! Wishing you and your beautiful family the best of luck and HAPPY, HEALTHY BABIES!!

    We are enjoying your photos and travels. Did not know you had a Hungarian Grandmother. I did also. Both my Grandparents, my Dad’s parents, were from Hungary and my Mom and I made all kinds of crepes. Yummy!!! Your pic made me hungry. Also lots of stuffed cabbage. Of course, my Mom had a German step-mother and did lots of German cooking.

    Kathy should be in California by now enjoying her family. We will miss her, but know how she loves her kids. We are all watching out for Vivian, but she keeps busy with her lady friends and Jack and I will catch-up with her Sunday in church. She is coming with Tom, which is unusual. But “good for her”!!

    We have Trivia tomorrow nite at the club. We love it-do not do that well, but lots of fun with our group. I enjoy asking our kids the questions after.

    Well, Grandma, Grandpa rest up – good times are coming!!

    Love and Best Wishes

  5. How incredibly exciting! I had my two granddaughters born a week apart and they are so incredibly close. It is wonderful when cousins are born close together. I hope geographically they are close enough to get together often! I will be having my third grandchild in October. My daughter will be having her second baby! Isn’t it just the best! Congrats again!

  6. Great fun! Little Man is so gorgeous, Laurie. You have captured the right moments, well done. I wonder how long it takes before he “needs” his own dog, though… ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Congrats! Two grandkids are a double blessing! My first one is now practicing being the big sister. Soon the Little Man may want his own doggie, he really seems to enjoy these furry friends!

  8. I’m so happy for you and the rest of your family, Laurie. I have a nineteen year old daughter who insists she’s never going to have childrenโ€ฆthanks for giving me hope!

  9. LOL.. I just read the post that you were going expecting a grandchild in Jan. Now you have another one coming in March… WOW.. 2015 is going to be a wonderful year for your family!!!!

  10. Congratulations, Matt and Laurie, What great news!!! They are the best. Gavin was in a 5 state track meet over the weekend and did his best time in all 3 races to qualify for the Nationals in Texas. He ran a 3000(8 times around the track) and took a third. He ran a 1500 and photo finished in 4 th place. Ran an 800 and took 4 th. He knew before the race that if he did qualify he wouldn’t be going to Texas. He just wanted to better his times. We are so proud of him. Mikey will be coming back to the shore tonight because his team has been doing very well with the baseball and they just keep moving on. He had a triple the other night. Next we will be going to see Devyn in a swim meet. They are busy, busy, busy!!! See what you have to look forward to? Nolan looks so grown up. Well I was disappointed that Andi let Chris go last night and Marcus last week. I hope she doesn’t pick Nick. Keep in touch. Love, Annie

  11. Yay! for another grandbaby!! When I saw the title of your post, I thought maybe your other daughter was having twins. ๐Ÿ˜€ More little people for you to love!

  12. I am so loving these photos! Brought smiles to my face. Congrats on the upcoming additions to the family! I know how thrilled you must be! Being a mom is such a joy, I can’t even imagine how positively delightful it would be to have grandchildren. I have a little while to wait on that one as my teen is a freshman in high school. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I hope she winds up marrying her best friend — her bestie for 2 years and he’s such a sweet boy and we adore his family! Congrats again!!

  13. Your dog portraits are beautiful Laurie.
    And you are so blessed – soon to have three grandchildren ๐Ÿ™‚ They are sure to bring pleasure into your life.

    • Congrats on upcoming grand babies! How awesome! Little Man is so adorable! I’m so glad he has a blast with all the dogs! I love a Sir Dalton! Hugz Lisa and Bear
