The Winner is and looks who's here...

Hello everyone..
Thanks for dropping by tonight and for signing up for the giveaway... 

Today is the day and the winner is.... 

Please email me your address dear and we will get that into the mail for you... Hope you like it... smile.. 

We have some very special guests here at the old cottage... 

It just seems like yesterday and they were all here but it was last Summer.. 

My, how they have grown and changed.. 
Turning into wonderful young men... 
So dear to our hearts.. (just a little tear)

We know that we will turn around and they will be all grown with their own families and these sweet Summer days here at the old cottage will just be memories.. 

We are so thankful for the pages that have been added to our heart's journal this week...

I am also thankful for the dear old Gramps that they have.. 
He has had a wonderful time with them.. 

Hauling wheel barrels of wood to the beach for fires..
Sitting down there with them for hours.. 
I went for a bit but they stay until after dark.. grin..

Some of them enjoy digging for something..??  grin..

They really crack you up with some of their observations.. 
Oh my... 

They certainly enjoy the extra large marshmallows and hot dogs .....

I think they get a bit of sleep but I am persuaded that this is their favorite activity while they are here...

I didn't realize until tonight that I am in a competition... 
They told me this meal has won so far... 
Meatballs, fried rice, peas and such... 

I couldn't believe it won over this morning's breakfast...

A dozen eggs, a whole pound of bacon, a loaf of bread, 3/4 of a gallon of fruit salad, a jar of jam, juice, milk, and oh... 
my coffee... 
Thank the Lord they are not into that yet.. grin.. 

Can you tell I am having fun?... 

They have talked my ear off and kept me awake and tired me out by laughing but  I would not trade these special days that God has blessed us with..
Thank you dear Lord for grandsons who are such a joy and who love you... 

We are thankful... 

Congratulations to Kendra and thank you all for joining in the fun.. 
You are all so sweet... 
Talk to you all soon...
