|Iz and Op...|
you and me together can do anything
One of those special weekends...had a little Firecracker spend the night with me and the old P-pa! (still need to write about last weekend and time at Lance's new house but looking for pics) Okay maybe I got sidetracked and...
Just breathe My Name.
It is like the pressure of a child's hand that calls forth an answering pressure, strengthens the child's confidence and banishes fear.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Proverbs 18:10"
And you notice....still with the breathe theme!
Well the weekend went a little bit like this...We went and picked Izzy up on Saturday...had the "Great Grands" Pfeiff ride along with us for a ride and fine dining in Limon, Colorado. Picked up a Firecracker and her Mama and met Aunt Aum and Androooo (as Izzy calls him) at Oscars for lunch. Then we headed back south and Firecracker's mama headed north to uncle La La's and Ty Ty's...(sorry couldn't resist putting it in there).
Stopped and played a bit at the Great Grands and then when time to leave...some little miss gave kisses. She gives good "loves" when she so chooses! And I am thankful she got a special day with them but also that they got one with her...

We made it to our house and nothing doing but one little firecracker go and help P-pa do chores...while the picture above is from Sunday...there was lots of action on Saturday as well. The little "Firecracker Princess" helped drive the power Ranger, helped haul some hay to the goats using the skid loader and of course giving everything an "Ahhh". (You know that sound you make when it's a good drink...well that is how Firecracker says drink). I looked out the window once and she is in the back of the little Ranger pickup getting the corn out of the buckets...quite a pair. Of course, they had left to do chores after I had asked what they wanted for supper. To which Izzy replies..."brownies". I told her well let's ask mom who replied, "NO!" At this Firecracker and "Op" as she calls him say YES! (because he used to be called Pop but turns out that is that yummy stuff you drink so she changed it from Pop to Op and then since he is her junk food source she will say, "Pop Op". I think there might be a Dr. Suess book there somewhere!!
So I didn't end up having just brownies for supper...but those two could have handled it. Firecracker chose the table to the bar...so there at my kitchen table where I sit every day...and count my blessings...was one of those blessing just sitting there. She definitely had a lot of individualized attention but turns out Op got finished sooner and proceeds to get himself a handful of M & M's while Izzy is eating her chicken and rice. To which she thinks she needs some M & M's. So of course Op thinks she may need some so she had chocolate and chicken...shhhh don't tell mom. There is an Easton Corbin song about spoiling your grandkids and the daughter getting upset with him...I think he wrote it for the "shepherd".
