    It is amazing when they all get together over here, this house ain't all that big. I keep thinking what it will be like when they get boy and girl friends. The oldest will soon be 15 and have his driving permit. Then within 5 months 3 more will get there. That's scary.

    We are getting pretty close to the end, maybe a couple more.

    Thanks Aaron. One of the only reason I don't have an XL is I just can't justify it in my mind. I am still thinking of selling the medium and small and if I do I may get an XL or at least another large.

    Hope all is well out your way, we have a heavy snow storm coming. It is going to make for some great powder skiing, boarding and snowmobiling. Spring isn't too far off now.

    Congrats GG! All 3 of my kids came out with a head full of black hair like that. Takes me back!

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Thanks. I wasn't going to say anything because they all are cute. One of the best parts about all this is in about 13 years my son-in-law gets to have a wonderful little girl and he can worry as much as I did with my daughter. Hehehehehe just gett'n even with the kids. They are the ones that causes all this gray hair.

    :) Her mom had the a lot of dark hair then it went blond, I wonder if Sam's will too.

    Thanks. Kent

    Thanks Mickey, I'll keep em all and any others I can snag on the way. I remember when with our first grandchild, our friends tried to tease us about becoming grand parents. Before the first I said oh crap. But after I got to hold that first one being grandpa was just the ticket...

    Hope all things are well out your way. Kent

    Thanks Kim. This daughter's kids are all a real blessing. Some years ago she had ovarian cancer which we think/hope is all in the past for good. That was some scary times.

    BTW, we really enjoy the book, thank you.

    Be well, Kent
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    I used to think the opposite, but I agree. Nothing better. Grandma and I sure do get busy with all the activities these little farts are involved with.

    Thanks Kent

    Hi Vance, you polishing that bike yet? I still have a mental picture of you riding covered with turkey feathers. hehehe

    Be well my friend. Kent
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    Thank you. It is amazing how time flies and how little the new ones are.

    For the next few months I get to have some fun saying "it's just gas" when the baby smiles. Little things to get even with the kids.

    OH MY!! What a CUTIE!! Congrats GG!!! :) Love her up!! 17 - that is a lot of eggen for the family!! :laugh:
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    Thanks. I melt of all of them.

    I told my wife I now need to get and XL. The only expression is a rolling of the eyes and a sarcastic "I guess, if you must".

    Hey, those were chicken feathers! :blush: :P

    Good thinking... Get the Egg now and break it in for her. As cute as she is, she will surely be making the Eggfest circuit in a very short time.
