Two Cuties at Halloween

HALLOWEEN 2012!  How cute are these 2 cuties?  Charlie (2) is a little Cupcake (and she LOVES cupcakes).  Aubrey (4) is a Pirate Princess (note the hook, red sash and pirate hat).  And...short sleeves --- after all, it is Santa Monica, CA!!!  Candy, chocolate, candy, chocolate----what is better at Halloween?  The Grinch of Halloween did come and remove all the left-overs the next day, but not before a few caffeine highs visited these two adorable grandchildren.

Last photo of summer

Sure sign that summer is last great photo of Ashley, Charlie (2) and Aubrey (4) on the pier at Ocean Isle Beach.  Back to Santa Monica and school.  But with the holidays coming, we will be heading out to be with them.  Charlie started "school" this year - same school as big sister - and is adjusting fine.  Both are "chatterboxes."  Always great memories!

Nothing better than Chocolate

Can you say YUMMY?  Aubrey and Charlie (think she could stick her head in it) loved eating the batter from Mom's chocolate cake!!!  Nothing is better than gooey fingers in the mouth!!!  Great beach time....riding the wave, finding clams, swimming in the canal, boat rides, slip n slide, pool, ice cream, park....summer should never end!  Thanks Aubrey, Charlie, Mom Ashley & Dad Kevin (and yes, Ali, the dog) for a wonderful summer.  Lots of memories stored up!

Grins and Giggles

                                                               SUMMER 2012

It has been a wonderful summer at the beach.  Here is Aubrey (in photo) & Charlie's first Lemonade was a huge success. Then the ever-smiling Charlie on the beach, sitting in a bucket.  Charlie turned 2 in June and Aubrey celebrated her 4th on Aug. 16th!  They bring such joy to Grendy (their name for Granddad) and me.  What a treat for Ashley & Kevin & the girls spend the summer with us....will be sad to see them return to Santa Monica, but we still have lots of time for grins and giggles.

Nothing is better than being with Aubrey and Charlie, playing and eating corn....yes real corn-on-the-cob---while waiting on the bus to the Farmer's Market in Santa Monica.  Beautiful time out with them and Ashley & Kevin during April and May.  Can't wait until they head back East for the summer.  What fun to see them at the beach - Ocean Isle Beach, NC.  We are truly blessed.
