~ GRANDFATHERS~

A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart...Grandfathers are for loving and fixing things...~Unkown~
One of the most powerful handclasps is that of a new grand baby around the finger of a grandfather.~Joy Hargrove~
Grandchildren are God's way of compensating us for growing old. ~Mary H. Waldrip~
I like to do nice things for my grandchildren. Like buy them those toys I have always wanted to play with. ~Gene Perret~
And, no cowboy was ever faster on the draw than a grandparent pulling a baby picture out of a wallet.~Unknown~

What lovely sayings and I know just what you mean, my husband left work early so he could get home to see the "babies." Yesterday, and as soon as he walks in the door they are running to be picked up. We live in a very special time. You took such lovely photos.
