Ain't Life Grand!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyday could be this grand. This is Pop and his youngest daughter.She has so much of his personality,it's unreal. She has that fiery side from her Mom,too,but it doesn't come out that often, unless she tired,and hungry,and then upset,all at once.That's when you don't want to be in the same room,but this picture depicts her personality most of the time. Even though she is the mother of our two Grandchildren,and as we all know, and she reminds us all daily,that they are the sweetest,most perfect,most precious kids on the face of the earth,they can be holy terror at times,and even she,needs some relief on occasion.Thank God for Aunt Rhonda and Uncle Marc,Mams(their natural maternal grandmother),and Meemaw and Poppy.Raising these two Perfect Grandchildren is truly a family affair,especially since their Mom received a grant from the hospital here lately, and is taking some additional courses to be a Nurse Practitioner.I think that what it is called.She can have her own office,and prescribe some medications,just like a Doctor.At least, that's my understanding of it.
Nevertheless,back to the picture. I was going through some of the pictures taken at Christmas this year, and got to thinking about this particular picture. The thing that was making them, and the rest of us,laugh so hard was one of the gifts she had given Pop. It was a Jeff Foxworthy Redneck Calendar,and I just happened to have his last year's calendar handy,too.The entire family sat around after the gifts were opened, and laughed our fool selves silly over the calendars.So many of the sayings on the calendar hit home with us,I guess that's why they all seem so funny.Why we even bothered getting and giving gifts, I'll never know. I think next year, we'll just buy the calendar and have that much fun all over again. What a fun and frugal way to celebrate Christmas.
