Three Musketeers

This is a picture I promised to post so the kids can see themselves on the computer. The center little boy is my 5 year old grandson, Jesse. At kindergarten these three have earned the nickname "The Three Musketeers" because they are always together. The little girl, Emma Mae, is the grand daughter of my best friend. The child's mother and my sons were like brothers and sister. They didn't want to be seen together unless something went wrong with any one of them and then the three solved the problem together. Emma Mae should have been a little younger than Jesse but she decided to be first and made a premature entry into this world. As a result she's almost two months older than Jesse. I think this little girl is an angel and I so proud that she and Jesse are friends.

Harry and I were both busy today. I didn't have time to cook dinner and that sure didn't break my heart since I'd been making Christmas candy most of the day. Harry suggested we go to Ryans this evening. It's an all you can eat buffet so you just walk right up, serve yourself, sit down and pig out. I wasn't bashful and built the biggest salad I could get on my plate. While I was eating I watched people circle the feed bins somewhat like starving animals. I was so disgusted that I circled and filled my dinner plate with baked chicken, lima beans, and a couple of things I can't name but that tasted pretty good. It was a quick and easy dinner but we certainly didn't go our cholesterol or sugar levels any favors. I feel like a stuffed turkey and look like the Goodyear blimp. It's gonna be a looooonnnnngggg night - so I better get started .......................................have a good night and an even better day tomorrow.

Beautiful kiddos!

I know what you mean about feeling like a stuffed turkey..we went to the Olive Garden for lunch, I hardly touched mine, brought most of it home in a box, but still-I left there feeling the same!

I hope your evening was fun!

The children are adorable. Your Grandson has such an angelic face. He looks very intelligent!

I am sending you an email shortly!

Yup, beautiful kids. Tell your grandson that we said hello.

I'm shameless at the all-you-can-eat places. I just can't help myself. It's been way too long since I've been to one with my mother. I'll have to go once before I start my next diet!
