joy of love (who they love and generations)

who they love - Molly dog

For lesson 6 our assignment was...
who do they love?
Since I'm using Grace and Will as my inspiration,  one of their loves
is our 11 year old labrador retriever, 'Molly.'
Molly is our gentle giant of a dog who looks out for my children when we're outside,
 is quite playful, endlessly patient, and tolerant of my two when she'd rather be taking a nap.
Molly is the only dog I've owned as an adult,
and the sweetest animal I've ever known.

who they love - Grandpa

And day 7's assignment is about generations.
The above was taken at Christmas with Grace and Will's Grandpa
(my dad).
My parents live just an hour away.
Grandpa is still a big kid in all ways,
and is blessed with great health along
with a fabulous sense of humor, and true joy of life!
He'll pretty much do anything the kids ask of him and more.
I love seeing them together.
We are fortunate that we live close and their Grandparents are such a big part of their lives.

Number 6 and no more counting! said...

aw, Molly and your Dad. I love it.

It sound like your dad could have been, WHO THEY LOVE also.

Beautiful post my friend. And, your dad is one handsome man with a beautiful smile. You have the same smile!

What a cool assignment. Your first picture looks like you acually have 3 kiddos. Your black Lab's hair is identical to Grace and Will's. Almost a blue/black. So gorgeous.

How wonderful to have your parents live so close. I love this image of the three of them. Such contentment.

Enjoy the Superbowl tonight.

What a beautiful dog you have! He looks so sweet and kind in this picture. My hubby wants a dog so badly...I think the kids do too. I'm still not giving in. ;-)

Love this photo of the kids and your dad. You can see the love in each of their eyes toward one another. I really need to take more pictures of my kids with my mom, sister and brother. I find I'm so busy doing "this and that" when we're together, I don't take the time to capture those precious moments.

Hope you're enjoying the end of the weekend. Boy did this one go by so quickly.

What a fun post! I don't know which picture is cuter -- the one with Molly or the one with Grandpa. HA HA!

These are just so much fun...I think I would definately make a scrapbook page for each of these and a book for each child. I agree with you about grandparents being close!! Our kids' are just 5 minutes away and I wouldn't have it any other way ;) And my dad is just the priceless!

I think it's amazing how all of these children who are supposed to fear dogs move here and then fall head over heels in love with them!

Lovely photos!EK would fit right into the first one. :) I looked out today and she was sitting with Fisher's head on her leg rubbing his head and talking to him just like her best friend. :) The pic of your dad is wonderful too! He looks so sweet. We are close to my parents and who I will post about tomorrow! Beautiful post!!!
Joy to you!

Such a sweet dog! Great image with your dad!

Awww... love these shots of the kids with Molly and with your Dad! So very sweet!

You can tell that Molly is a special part of your family! I had to laugh at Wanda's comment, but it is true....haha!!

Hope you had a great weekend~
