Five grandchildren and holding...for right now; however, when I mentioned how much I love snuggling with my grandbabies, and how much I always seem to want another one about the time the youngest starts walking, I definitely saw a look pass between the mommy and daddy of my youngest, Tori.  There are enough grandkids now to have one stop by five days a week for a little cuddling action from Gramma...two more and I would have a different grandchild visiting everyday! A week's worth of grandchildren, oh, my!!   I know two couples are planning another one each, so chop, chop!  Tori is cruising, no, running now, so better go ahead and get started on another one.  

We all live in close enough proximity to one another that it only takes about five minutes to get to my house from each of their homes.  And for me, especially in the warmer weather, there is nothing I love more than to get surprise drop-in visits from these little darlings.  

I think it's so heartwarming that they each have a place here that makes then feel special.  Kaylee likes finding the dolls and stuffed animals, David the snacks, Damien the games, Abigail the plastic McDonald's food service basket and my shoes, and Tori the rocking horse.  

Last night was a Tori night.  She is my cuddler and spent most of her time in my lap resting her head against my chest, listening to my heart beat.  

Here she is from last night.  I cannot believe how much she's grown!

             As you can probably guess, I am now on the hunt for cowgirl boots and a cowgirl hat for her bronco-riding adventures at Gramma's house!  Ride em cowgirl!

As Magpie said and I whole heartedly agree, you are so blessed! All your grands are so precious but I gotta admit...I have a thing about cowboys so Tori, I'm with ya, kiddo!!!
