Way to Grandma!!!!!! 2 little ones to cherish and mess with!!!!!!! How will you ever survive?
You will. I had to "suffer" thru 4 grandsons before my little girl came along. My picture has Nathan at 5. I love all mine, as I know you will love yours. There's a saying that "grandkids are the reward for not killing our kids". Truer words were never spoken.

That's sooooooo ture!!! And YES I WILL SURVIVE!!!!!! Ya' know I love these little ppl more than I kove their grown mom. But when she was their age I loved her and her sis ( 17 months apart) as much as I do the lovely granddaughters of mine now! They don't talk back yet!!!!!!!!!
