Papa’s World – Twins birthday – MARLEY puppy – and cousin Sarah comes to visit!

The twins turned eleven years old – Cassidy and Taylor birthday!

Yes – they are twins – and they had to be taken out early because Taylor was taking all the nourishment!

Today – Cassidy is normal for her age but Taylor is going to be real tall – like her MORMOR –

Swedish for MOTHERSMOTHER!

Sherry is 5′ 9″ and she will be taller than that.

Bode – who turns eight is also going to be tall and here is cousin Sarah – who at soon to be 15 – is gaining on Sherry!

We went back to NVA to watch the little ones and the puppy Marley – and Sarah came for overnight!

MARLEY at six months old – a puppy who likes to play keep away and run and run.

She is adorable and is a Goldendoodle – judging by her feet – she will be very large! She is so friendly and loving.

But – you must make sure to keep things out of reach as she tends to chew – thus she stood up and grabbed the hat of our son in law and that became history! LOL

And at night – after all day with MARLEY and the little ones – sleep was welcomed! LOL
A very proud grandmother – Sherry with all four – missing the two oldest who are in college – best birthday among

the cousins celebrating by a road trip with Debby and Sarah into Washington D.C. to the city ZOO!

ME – I GOT TO HANG WITH MARLEY!

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!

Papa’s World – Coloring eggs on the lanai -exploring Barefoot Landing – LITTLE ONES!

One of the first things Sherry did for the little ones after they had a good nights sleep-

Was to color Easter Eggs!

So – she hard boiled the eggs – set up on the Lanai – and they got to it!

Taylor Cassidy Bode – on the Lanai overlooking the small lake at Ocean Keyes – coloring Easter Eggs!

This has been a tradition with MorMor – as they call her -Swede for Mothers Mother!

She has done this even before Bode – who is six was born!

Afterward – things were washed up and packed for Tammy to take back to NVA!

Cassidy Bode Taylor

I think Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins!

They are so much alike and act the same.

It is hard for me to tell the difference if I am not looking at them – to see who is talking!

Now – Bode is going to be tall like Taylor – who is so laid back!

She likes her “TAYLOR” time!

She also is going to be the tallest of the granddaughters

With Maddy being 5′ 6″ – Ella 5′ 8 1/2 ” and Sarah pushing Ella at 14 years old!

We took the family to Barefoot landing in North Myrtle Beach –

We had taken them there before and the little ones love the playground!

There was a Easter Egg hunt – scavenger – find the different stores hunt going on!
Cassidy at one of our favorite stores!
Cassidy and Taylor with I think Frozen Princess’s

Then it was time for a late lunch – our reservations were ready!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa” World – looking back in time – THE TWINS – Taylor and Cassidy – such sweetness!

A little over 10 years ago – they came along – so tiny – early – because they determined one was taking all the nutrition.

And – the day they decided this – just happened to be their mother’s birthday!

That is right – mother and daughters now celebrate the same day birthdays!

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME!

Cassidy and Taylor – they were so small with Taylor weighing some 13 oz. more!

Does not sound like much – but they both weighed some 3 lbs. plus oz. !

Through out life for them – Taylor has always been the bigger of the two.

They were so darn cute – playing hide and seek!

Cassidy is a little spit fire – Taylor more laid back!

They continue to grow this way – my thought is – Cassidy will end up taller than her mother who is
5′ 6″ tall – and Taylor is taking after her MorMor ( Sherry 5’9″) and will be close to 6’0 when all is said and done! She already is over 5′ at ten years old! Look at Cassidy’s socks!
Taylor and Bode with MorMor( Sherry) Bode is going to be tall also as he is only six years old!

Sweetness – Taylor rides horses – Cassidy is the more serious type – she teaches the other two crafts.

Taylor is always ready to help her in schoolwork –

Cassidy the more daring one – you can just tell that by the picture!

Both love their MorMor and both will call her!

The little SPIT FIRE! Cassidy – ” Someday I am going to be big” she says!

She has the biggest heart – always watching over the other two – her and Bode are two peas in a pod!

Papa’s World – Family – walking into a new year!

Family

As we start the new year – 2021 –

Hoping that this year will be better than the last!

We now are officially in the South!

But – the family is spread now out more than ever!

Troy Papa Sherry Shawn Trisha

My two sons and daughter in law are all back in NWPA.

They run a energy – audit company that contracts with the state.

Very successful and ever growing

Troy runs the crews – Trisha the office –

and Shawn the audits.

This is all done with grants for the elderly

by both the state and the power companies that serve the elderly.

Three sisters – Sherry – Debbie – Bonnie

Sherry has two sisters – one still lives back in NWPA

The other outside Raleigh N.C.

Both are retired as is Sherry who also runs her own

network marketing company from where ever we live.

WWW.SF.Juiceplus.com

We are now across Pa. Va. N.C. and a possible Tenn.

The children of the three sisters – cousins – very close – growing up.

Kristy – Nigel – Bethany – Natalia – Nathan – Tammy – Debby – cousins.

The family has grown over the years –

today you see in the first picture that growth.

And now the grand children of the three sisters

As we age – it seems that get together’s get less and less.

Being so spread out and so diverse –

logistics and time make it almost impossible to bring it off!

Debby’s family – Ella Maddy Sarah Mike a number of years ago.
Tammy and family Taylor Bode Cassidy Marcus

2020 has been a tough year – a time of forced seperation

social distancing – less travel – moving away.

It also has brought us together with Zoom calls

text messages and phone calls.

But one thing is for certain –

family always remains strong.

My blog starts and ends with family.

Papa’s World – out of pop tarts – ginger bread houses – baking cookies!

Tis the season! We are back home in NVA!

And Sherry and the little ones are baking cookies!

Bode – Taylor – Cassidy – made these Ginger – Bread houses out of POP TARTS!

They followed Sherry’s instructions –

Then it was time to bake cookies!

Bode – Taylor – Cassidy – followed MORMOR’S instructions – and each decorated their own.

They each rolled out the cookie dough –

and each one cut out the cookies.

They then decorated the ones they made!

They love baking with their MorMor – in Swedish – mother’s mother!

And – as she does every year and their favorite

CHEX MIX!

All the grand kids love this when she makes it!
TIS THE SEASON

We are spending three weeks back and forth between the two daughters houses.

And as with the young grand children

She also baked cookies with the older ones!

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

From our hearts to yours!

Papa’s World – both alike – both so different – twins.

Cassidy and Taylor on their 10th. birthday with mama Tammy. Who also shared the same day as a birthday!

Recently – two pictures were taken

one of each girl

Taylor and Cassidy.

My gosh – when did they look so grown up?

Cassidy with MORMOR & Ginger

Cassidy – the little of the two

actually – their difference has about stayed the same

but now Taylor is growing fast

she is going to be really tall

like her MORMOR – Sherry!

MORMOR in Swedish is MOTHERS MOTHER!

This is all she wanted when small

Cassidy had dozens of stuffed Panda’s

all lined up by her bed

today she is the TECHIE one

and the CRAFT one.

She also is a perfectionist

everything has a place

and she knows right away if anything has been moved!

Note how neat her desk is.
Taylor – going to be so tall – she looks a lot older her than ten years old!

Taylor – whom I think will be taller than Ella ( 5 ‘ 8 1/2 “)

and Sarah at 14 (5 ‘ 6 ‘) and going through a growth spurt.

She is laid back – needs her own TAYLOR TIME –

And loves horses and riding!

Her room is full of stuffed horses and horse toys.

Taylor who rides once a week

We have been monitoring them at the start of the school year.

But – we are now gone

It has its challenges

for both the twins and the monitors.

It also is Bode’s kindergarten year

But – we are glad we have been a part of it for the start.

We will be gone for five months

coming back for Holidays

BIRTHDAY GIRLS!

They still are so alike – I can not tell the difference

if they get excited – and I hear them talking.

Yet – they have different interests

so alike yet so differnet

when they all three sing

you do not know who is who!

As a monitor for two weeks – TEACHERS DO NOT MAKE ENOUGH!

I will not be surprised when we come back

the changes in both of them

it is not that Cassidy is small

but Taylor is really tall for her age!

Papa’s World – education has been regulated to the home!

As grand parents and as Parents – trying times are ahead

I never imagined we would be doing this –

monitoring school – class – and a kindergarten first time student!

Set up number two!

We had them all set up and then had to move them.

First – there would be too much distraction for Bode

being in the same room with the twins.

Then we had to move Cassidy

because of feed back from Taylor’s monitor!

After the second set up for Bode upstairs

Tammy had to move him because the lighting was not good

His teacher could hardly make him out

so he got better light in front of the living room window!

He is all set up and is interested in what he is doing

and raises his hand to speak!

He has the computer skills and is learning fast on how to navigate!

Taylor’s classroom

Taylor is the only one to remain in her original chair!

Cassidy wanted to move – and Taylor was happy

to stay where she was!

Taylor and Sherry at my desk site

Taylor is the quiet one – and a very good student.

She listens the best of the three.

She was very happy not to move

Has her blanket to stay warm –

this is in the basement – and cooler down here.

She has all her things and animals

and arranged for her to reach.

Yesterday she got dressed for horse back riding

and at TEN YEARS OLD

comes up to Sherry’s shoulder

Sherry is 5′ 9″!

Cassidy’s desk – notice how neat and organized everything is!

Cassidy wanted to be the one to move –

we set up our table in the back room with the flowered sectional.

They use this as the playroom and there is a huge closet

and that is where she moved all the toys by herself

so we could set up the table!

Cassidy with her favorite stuffed animal and one sitting on the table as if watching!

She is the neatest of the three – well Bode has a neat bedroom

but he is all boy and tends to leave whatever he is playing with

and moving onto the next thing.

But – she has to have everything in it’s place

all neat and in rows!

She knows if you move anything!

She can be the sweetest little girl

in her little voice – but she can also be the opposite.

Of the three – she clings to MorMor

asking the questions of when we are leaving

and when she will see us again.

She always makes it a point to say goodnight or goodbye.

Tammy Bode Taylor Cassidy

Tammy was the first one to follow us to NVA

We made the trip back to Rochester to pack her up

and she moved down to live with us.

She is quiet about the move – but like Debby who is very emotional

about us leaving – she is also.

Papa’s World – when birthdays come in THREE’S

Taylor Cassidy Tammy ( mommy)

Ten years ago – they were born – early –

Taylor was growing and Cassidy was not

So I think just around 32 or 33 weeks

The doctor decided now was the time

and they were so tiny – 3 lbs. something each

and Taylor bigger – so it has been for ten years!

Tammy

Tammy – she struggled at first –

and – to be sure the twins were all right

she got to come home first

then – the smallest – Cassidy came home!

Then three days later – Taylor.

There was nothing wrong with either one

they just had to make sure since they were so tiny

that they would eat and be okay.

Today Taylor – who I think is going to be as tall or taller than Sherry!
Cassidy – she loves her MorMor ( Sherry) and asks almost everyday when we are leaving.
Taylor and Cassidy

So the same but oh so different

day and night

Taylor laid back

Cassidy always busy

The birthdays were not planned

it was all in the hands of the doctor

and so now we have THREE BIRTHDAYS!

Celebrating three in one day
Birthday celebration comes in THREE!
Taylor “BEAR”
Cassidy – the little dynamo
The twins
When birthdays come in THREES!

Papas World – ” HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL”!

We have been here for 11 days – and five of those days –

we spent at Lake Holiday with Debby and Mike.

Tammy and Marcus address has become our address

and home base.

At Lake Holiday with Debby – Mike and Maddy.

Also Sarah and Ella.

At Tammy and Marcus house outside Leesburg Va.

Marcus has been having problems with lots of rabbits!

Eating the grass and plants.

So – he spread this rabbit stuff on the lawn –

suppose to make them not like it!

And for the last week or so – it seemed to work!

Then – as we- Sherry and I – were sitting on the patio –

She said look!

There were two rabbits – playing around the corn hole board!

They would follow each other around and under the board!

Then one laid down and began to roll around –

the other just sat there-

this went on for several minutes!

It was really cute and funny –

as I knew my son in law was trying to keep them out of the yard

and away from all the flowers and plants!

Taylor – one of the twins – came out and named them Daisy and Buttercup!

I think the whole thing is funny –

and am waiting for Peter Cottontail to show up!

Buttercup eyeing the flowers! Lol

He was golfing so I took the pictures and tagged him!

I have a feeling it is going to be a long Summer and Fall.

My son in law watching over his lawn and flowers.

Papas World – “AS EASY AS 1-2-3-!” The little ones!

We are now living in the basement of our daughters house!

But basement doe not quite describe it!

We have a bedroom – a full bathroom – two living rooms with chairs and sectionals!

And a storage room where we have put excess items!

We are very comfortable and even another entrance if we choose.

But the one thing I have noticed is how close these three are.

Yes – tyey argue and Bode seems to be the agitator to his sisters.

Yet – they protect him as well!

He will snuggle up with either one and they also will do the same with him.

It all depends on who is watching what on the IPADS!

And they are allowed select time on them –

the rest is play time outside – riding their bikes to neighbors house

or playing in the back yard.

Each girl will retreat to their own rooms –

while Bode tends to play with his toys by himself.

Yesterday – the two girls got up and went outside

here laid Bode – on the back of the couch

he had fallen asleep!

Bode fell asleep on the back of the couch

I tried to get a picture of him – but Taylor going out the door woke him up!

Bode age 5 The twins – Taylor & Cassidy age 9

Our time here for me will be remembered as the song goes

“1 – 2 – 3 ” !

AS EASY AS!!!!!

Cassidy and Bode are much more alike –

yet each one has the traits of the others.

Papa’s World – living healthy through my grand kids !

A few days ago –

I saw a post that stated ” GRAND PARENTS REMAIN YOUNG ” while watching their grand kids ! Boy – that was right on !

As most of you know – Sherry and I – pick up the twins from school -bring them home until their father picks up the youngest ( only boy grandchild) and then stops to pick up the twins !

Tammy opened her store almost one year ago – Kids consignment store – which is open every day except Monday 10 am. – 5 pm.

So – they needed help and we stepped in along with Marcus’s parents Jennie and Gehard. Since Bode’s preschool is close to them – they pick him up at 1:00 pm. and then Marcus goes after work to pick him up.

Now I must say – I really enjoy my little trip to the school – a little over one mile away. “PAPA – BE FIRST IN LINE ” is what they tell me. Well – even though I am in line one hour before they get out – most times I am second !!! That person must get there after breakfast !But – I use that time to listen and read !

Listening to my favorite radio station – not classic rock or country or rap or whatever else is out there – but ” SPORTS RADIO” 106.7 The Fan! I enjoy kicking back – using a couple wadded up blankets – for a pillow – and just spacing out listening to the talk show. This relaxes me and yes sometime I catch a quick 10 minute power nap ! When I was working – I used my lunch – one hour – every day to do the same thing ! Habits are hard to break !

But – I also listen to these two little girls – talking – conversing and sometimes a argument breaks out ! Now at that time I either look back and tell them to stop or I turn up the radio so loud – that they become silent ! LOL But I find they actually talk so much like adults – on their own daily lives.

Being with them makes me feel young at heart – relating to them – and oh my goodness – the questions are endless – and” WHY” is always asked.

But – then it gets adult like with the answer ” OF COURSE ” or ” ACTUALLY ” or “PAPA” ! I love that – and it makes you think when you answer the “WHY” !

” WHY ARE YOU NUMBER TWO AND NOT NUMBER ONE ” ? I get that one almost every week ! But – how can you argue the fact that life is about staying young even though it might only be a frame of mind !

Turn back time – can’t – capture thoughts words and deeds in pictures – you can – but staying young is a art that we all try to master.

Mine is a matter of mind over physical – thinking – acting and doing! I may not be number one in line but I think I try harder at being number two – after all – “PAPA – WHY AREN’T YOU NUMBER ONE ” keeps me on my toes each week to give a answer and that my friends keeps me young !

Papa’s World – Loudoun United coming !!!!

We have been following soccer for I guess 14 years –

Maddy was four when she started to play – then Ella !

Now – we will follow Maddy in college –

and continue to follow Ella in travel and H.S. soccer –

But – on 8 -9-19 – something new is about to happen !

And since I write this a week ahead of time –

last night –

it happened!

GOOD MORNING

We will have a professional soccer team about six miles away !

LOUDOUN UNITED SOCCER TEAM –

A farm team of D.C. United in Washington D.C.

Where players are developed – much as minor league baseball !

Site of new soccer field

Almost across from the Leesburg airport –

and part a huge soccer complex already there –

( where our grand daughter Maddy practiced for three years )

sits a complex of 12 to 16 soccer fields

And is part of Loudoun County !

Site work

It also contains a complex of base ball diamonds –

and both grass and turf fields.

Major tournaments both in baseball – softball

and soccer are played here

and is a hot bed for recruitment for soccer for college.

Beginning to take shape

A new four lane road with a traffic signal was built –

along with additional parking for over 700 cars –

along with lots already there for 700 cars.

More parking is in the plans !

In addition to the new stadium –

four more fields are being built

as part of the deal for the land with the county –

and two turf fields also will be built –

along with a state of the art training facility.

One of the turf fields will be for the pro team only

while the other fields will be for the County park.

Work progressing

We have known about this for some time –

as it has been in the news –

and Washington D.C. United –

just opened their new stadium –

which sits about a quarter mile from Nat’s Park

In the last two months !

So – big time Soccer is now here !

BLEACHERS

Being so close – instead of going into D.C. to Audi Field

we can jump in the car and be in the lot in 15 minutes –

of course traffic may become a problem and it will take longer

but still – to have this is just awesome !

Becoming a new fixture

Although Maddy will no longer be coming here for games and practice

There may be a chance that Ella’s travel team may play here.

Almost done

Our hope is to attend games –

and see some future players play in the big time.

Field is ready

This is a beautiful area –

and as the plan moves forward with the additional complex

It is a gold star for the County !

August 9 th. Professional Soccer came to Loudoun County !

Papa’s World – schools out – little guy comes – takes pictures

Last Friday was his last day of pre – school !

His mother drops him off around 9:30 AM. on her way to work.

WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

The ” Little guy ” is Bode – our grand son – the only boy out of six grand kids.

We sit on the front porch together

” Papa – can I have your phone? ” he will ask.

Social media in today’s World for children can be a problem.

So – we put rules in place – there is a timer – when that goes off –

They must find something to do !

Bode & Papa – playing “FARM”

Usually – he will ask – ” Papa – will you play with me ” ?

And – of course I do – we have this extended FARM SET –

and – most of the grand kids at one time or other – have played with it !

I PAD – TIMER ON

When he does get to have the I PAD – he heads for the couch –

and for the next hour –

the only sound you hear is what comes from the I PAD!

Bode’s view with “MY PHONE “!

There are times –

” PAPA – CAN I HAVE YOUR PHONE ” ?

And – of course – the timer is in effect –

however – I got a surprise –

When I went to look for pictures for this blog –

I discovered – unknown to me –

he was not listening to ” FAMILY FUN PACK”

But was taking pictures !!!

I was watching the ball game

and here he took “HIS VIEW” picture of me !!!!

You can see his little foot !

I saved a few – but I found it quite funny to find these.

Another he took of Cassidy

He had walked around the room and took pictures !

One he took –

was of Cassidy in her ” TENT” with her I Pad !

Now these two Cassidy and Bode –

should of been the twins !

Taylor is so laid back and quiet –

Bode and Cassidy – just the opposite !

Cassidy and Bode
Cassidy and Bode

Cassidy had her I Pad set up to a video on Justin Beiber –

And they both went through the moves

and sang along to it !

When they sing together –

it is hard to tell who is who –

they sound the same

Cassidy is the protector –

she will grab his hand in the waves –

She would be the Elephant in this picture –

she always looks out for him –

always watching over him !

Two peas in a pod I call them – so a like –

and hard to tell which is which when they call from another room.

She is like a second mother to him –

and I noticed –

she has a lot of patience with him –

smiling as he grabs a hold of her and tugging her.

Just enjoying my grand kids –

next week – school will be out –

But for now – I sit on the porch waiting –

the little guy is coming –

” PAPA – CAN I HAVE YOUR PHONE ” ?

In a while – yes you can –

but you can’t take pictures !

Better yet – you can have the I Pad –

At least no pictures can be taken –

at least I think that !

“HE KNOWS MORE ABOUT IT THAN I DO ” !!!!

Hope you enjoyed

I ALSO GET LOST – I THINK I AM GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

But – my wife – Sherry – will say – no – you turn left not right !

Always take a picture when you start out
!

Rule number one when you golf with me – always take a picture at the start that way when you know the beginning of the course – after you make a wrong turn – been there – done that !!!!!

When we go on a long or short trip – I always put the address in the GPS or Sherry uses her phone because she says – ” The GPS in the car is weird ” You can’t trust it !!!! Now – I just look and think – “WHY DO WE HAVE IT ” ?

YEP – either made a wrong turn – or a great shot

On the golf course – that is me – I have gotten lost – when you play a new course – you follow the signs – hoping no one has changed them ! But even then – I have done it – wrong turn – in Oahu – from tee to tee – was a journey through the mountains – and jungle – and rain forest – I got lost !

Made wrong turn and had to double back ! The girls didn’t and wondered where we had gotten off to !

Who is teaching who !!!!

The twins – they love my computer and You Tube – now I am not a “TECH” sort of guy – my wife says it is “ME” when things go wrong – she is absolutely right if I am driving – but the computer – that thing has a mind of it’s own !

I swear – I just look at it and something happens – maybe that is why she tells me she doesn’t want me within TEN FEET of HER computer !!

YES – I AM A BELIEVER!

I know – there is no such thing – there is no BIGFOOT – but strange things do happen to me – like the phone rings and when I answer – I had been thinking of them!

Or the time – in the parking lot of work – early morning – stars still out – I looked up and saw a cluster of individual lights moving across the sky in formation – moving back and forth as they passed above me – like 7 or 8 satellite’s flying over head !

YES – I SAW THAT !

I DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE !

When I drive and she is not paying attention – a voice comes from the car – rather annoying –

but it is because I made a wrong turn – I missed the turn – I was too late to turn – and I have NO SENSE OF DIRECTION !

That is me – ” RECALCULATING ”

I know just how MOSES felt while being lost in the desert for forty years – that is WHY I drive and she gives directions –

but I STILL MAINTAIN –

I BELIEVE IN BIGFOOT –

I HAVE SEEN UFO’S AND IT WAS THAT DAMM COMPUTER !!!!

Papa’s World – if you could do one thing – what would Cher do ?

GOOD MORNING

Most of you know or heard the song –

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER

Well – the other day – as I was searching my phone –

I came across some pictures –

and as the saying goes –

A picture is worth a thousand words !

Cassidy and Taylor
our twin grand daughters

When their parents sold their house – and they were in between housing

They came to stay with us –

This is what they were like – five and one half years ago !

Oh – if only I could – I would return to those days !

THIS IS ME

I remember oh so well –

The downstairs bathroom door was shut –

I could hear them –

giggling –

I opened the door –

and there they were –

They had their dolls and doll clothes and were playing house.

They looked up at me and did exactyly what they are doing in this picture

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER

Taylor – Sarah – Cassidy
Note the shoes on Cassidy

And then whenever the others visited –

It was always these three –

Sarah is the older cousin –

and to this day they still have this bond.

Taylor – Sarah – Cassidy

Taylor has always been the bigger of the two –

“I AM SMALLER – BUT ONE DAY I WILL GROW UP “

says Cassidy –

CASSIDY DOES

Today – Taylor rides horses – Cassidy does Gymnastics

Sarah does classical dance –

A few years ago –

All three were MERMAIDS !

“IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER.

Today – they live only a mile away –

Such a short distance –

But time is passing –

Such a fast pace –

Taylor – she just has that all knowing look

Taylor is growing up so fast –

soon to be nine years old

who writes about horses and how to care for them

who – can saddle a horse –

clean the hoof

And ride with no hands

Cassidy – the sweet smile

Cassidy – always practicing her cartwheels –

her round offs and back stand overs

The one who can make anything

as she watches the instructions from you tube

Who always pushes –

everything to the edge.

And now there is Bode

And now in that span – there is Bode –

who looks and acts exactly like Cassidy .

He soon will be five

Trucks – bikes – lego’s

All boy

Bode – Cassidy – Taylor
Taylor – MorMor – Cassidy
Sherry is MorMor to all three

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER .

Time is going on – memories are the past –

But these pictures are my gateway backwards

Bode- Cassidy – Taylor – Sarah – Ella – Maddy
Grandchildren

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER.

It is very rare to celebrate your birthday with your child !

But – how rare is it to celebrate your birthday

Taylor – Tammy – Cassidy
all share the same day
September 3rd.

Nine years ago the twins were born –

43 years ago – Tammy was born –

The twins had to be delivered early

The doctor said Taylor was growing and Cassidy wasn’t !

And so it has been all their lives

They grow at the same pace now

Taylor and Cassidy

Alike but different – same as their size –

one athletic ( Cassidy ) Gymnastics –

one who loves and rides horses ( Taylor )

both who adore their mother and MORMOR ( SHERRY ) Mothers mother !

Tammy and Sherry

Tammy – played basketball – soccer and in the marching band growing up !

Tammy in the marching band all those years ago

Today – she runs her own business –

Two of them actually

One Health and Nutrition

as a Sales Coordinator for the Juice Plus Company

Tammy at her own store

The other is her own store she opened up over a year ago !

A kids consignment

dealing in only upscale clothing ages 3 months to size 14 !

Her store is open six days a week and she has four part time employees !

Cassidy
so little
but so feisty
Taylor
so loving – so mature

So all have the same day as a birthday means days and days of celebrations

Daughter and Mother

Mother and daughter so much alike!

Marcus and Tammy
husband and wife

Marcus – our son in law – daddy to the kids !

Cassidy -Tammy and Taylor
the birthday party at our house
and Bode’s hand
Fit bits from us
they were so excited
and wear them every day
trying to out do each other
in steps !!!!
The little guy
Bode watching
he and Cassidy
are two peas
in a pod !!!!

As the years pass – we have a door upstairs –

on the back of that door recorded with dates and names

are their heights and weight

both progress the same

from the 1 lb. 14 ozs. of Taylor at birth

and the 1lb. 2 ozs.of Cassidy at birth

it has not changed !
