Our Grandchildren

I just have to squeeze these two extra pictures in here tonight.
These are our grandchildren: David (almost 18 months old) and Carmen (6 years old in January). They truly are the light of our lives... as people say about their precious children and grandchildren! They truly are. They live in Mexico with their parents. Their father is out oldest son and our business partner in Mexico. The children are bilingual... something I must admit that I am very happy about. Carmen goes to a school that focuses on English. David is quite the little athlete and loves anything that he can kick. Soccer (futbol in Spanish) is his passion... so watch out Beckham! Carmen loves cooking with her mother and riding around the farms with her dad. We are truly enjoying getting to spend time with them... even though it is never enough.

Another flower of Mexico

Here is another beautiful and popular shrub in Mexico. It is very delicate looking but manages to handle the sun and heat just fine. I had one of these on my patio when we lived in Mexico. Wish I could bring a plant back to the States with me but, sadly, it is not allowed.

Who can resist the toy man in Mexico?

My husband buys toys for the grandkiddies

We took our two grandchildren to the town park last night. Of course the man sellig toys knows just who to entice into buying his wares. David got a ball and Carmen got an inflated caterpiller... pink of course! So much fun.
