while I was gone . . .

The two babies in my arms are our first grand children. Abigail on the left and Fiona on the right. I know, I know, everyone shows pictures of their grand children and we are always polite and look at them, but these girls are the cutest.

When we left Cleveland, it was 40 and rainy. When we got back, spring had sprung and it was still rainy. We have a ton of garden work to do ,just as soon as I look at all the pictures I took of the girls.

They are beautiful. Congratulations to you! As a grandmother myself, I know how many hours of the day can be filled looking at the photos of your darling grandchildren. The garden might have to wait a day or so.

Hello, Mr. Groble,
I must agree, these babies are just too precious. But then, of course, I am one of their grandmothers.

Love the photo of you, and OI am so happy you got to spend some quality time with the girls.

Jim, I'm just catching up on your blog after finishing my final grades for the semester -- and I see I've missed a lot while I was grading. Congratulations to you and Pat on the beautiful grandchildren. -Jean
