Another Picasso???

This is a little late but I wanted to document another talent of Eli's. He loves any sport but he also loves being creative (a talent he inherited from his Mama and Mammie).

While waiting on the birth of the girls, I was doing some touch-up painting at Nikki's and Eli decided he wanted to paint also. Nikki let him get creative and he LOVED every minute. This was a creation he gave to PawPaw and it now hangs in PawPaw's garage for everyone to see.

As you can see, he really gets into his painting (notice the yellow belly).

This is the completed painting. He also signed his name in a very creative way.

And for those of you who know me, yes it will end up in his Scrapbook!!

First visit

Last weekend Nikki, Josh and the family came to Chattanooga. Burt and Christy were having a new floor put in their living room/dining room and they wanted to help return the favor for having had help a few years ago when they did the same thing.

Needless to say we were very glad they were here no matter what the reason. Most of the day Saturday the guys worked and the girls watched. Nikki, Christy and I did take the kids to a playground in East Ridge called Pioneer Frontier. Eli had a great time playing. It really is a big playground, well built and with a variety of things for all ages.

Then on Sunday, Nikki and I with the kids went to see Gaga. This makes 12 great-grandchildren.

Here are 4 generations. These days I think that's pretty amazing.

And the girls had to have a nap (Annabel on left and Harper on right, I think).
It's still a little difficult for me to tell them apart sometimes. Especially in pictures.

Love these girls and their big brother too!!!!!
