What Happened?

Could somebody please tell me what happened to the last 4+ years?

Because my little Rissi starts Pre K next week and I could have swore I was changing her diapers just yesterday.

An overnight with Grammy and Pop pop was in order.  
Dairy Queen chocolate ice cream w/ sprinkles.

Then shopping for shoes. 
Decisions, Decisions.

Dear Diary,

I'm wondering what happened to Rissi?  She used to share cookies, heck.. she used to drop cookies.  Now she says'no Gracie, you can't have chocolate'.  Someone must've told her I couldn't have chocolate?  Hmmm... I think I know.  It had to be Mom...  she's become such a thorn in my side.  Humph.  Gracie.

no bake cookies!
 please - please - please.
Just one.
I promise I'll never jump on you again!


  1. what a little lovey,, she is so sweet and where do the years go,,

  2. Beautiful photos; she is going to love Pre-K! I hope you'll share pics of her first day.

    Gracie, I hope you have sweet dreams tonight!

  3. What a sweetheart, and Grandma has just gotten prettier, too! Sorry about the chocolate, Gracie, but we don't want you getting an upset tummy!

  4. I'm the same as you, only wondering where the last five years went!! Anne started kindergarten this week and oh, the angst!!! You think this is bad, wait till kindergarten. ALL DAY long!! I LOVE the post, it almost made me cry!!! The pictures are perfect! I love the one with her and Gracie!! And I have never seen the Jim Croce video, so sad. You didn't show us the shoes!! And don't forget to post pics of first day of school with a full report! Pre-k is really a good thing, then they are prepared for kindergarten and not just shocked at a full day from the start.

  5. What a precious Granddaughter! I don't know where the years go! My oldest Granddaughter is about to be 16, YIKES! Rissi is precious!

    Gracie, everyone is just trying to keep you from getting sick! Do you know why? BECAUSE they LOVE you:)

    Enjoy your day dear Bobbi, HUGS!

  6. I so often feel the same way about my grandkids. Time goes to fast! Gracie, You would NOT LIKE chocolate! Glo

  7. Such a cute girl. Kids do grow up so fast!

  8. Oh, Bobbi, tomorrow she will be starting high school, wearing lipstick and it will be all about boys!

    Gracie, when Marissa gets older, she will again sneak you goodies, just not chocolate ones.

  9. What a beautiful young lady she has become and we are pretty sure Gracie taught her all she knows about being a Princess.
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  10. Rissi has some great adventures ahead of her. Don't blink though. Before you know it you'll be attending her high school graduation. Believe me, I know! Sigh.

  11. Hello there..
    What a sweet little granddaughter...I am also a grammy to a little granddaughter who turned 7 in July. They DO grow so very fast. You had a special time and overnight with her. That is so lovely making memories like that.
    have a wonderful day

  12. Mom was sayin' da same ting jus' da odder day. Our grand bipeds will be 4 in a couple of weeks. Where did da time go?

  13. So cute! I hope she enjoys Pre-K!

  14. Bobbie, this must be so bittersweet for y'all! Thrilling to watch Rissi learn and grow, but kind of sad because she ins no longer the little chubby doll-baby in those pictures....

    I LOVE the pic of her on the blanket with Gracie beside her.... what an adorable shot.

    She is blessed to have such a loving Grammie and Pop - Pop!

  15. Oh, and I hope you have a wonderful teacher,lots of fun, and learn lots at Pre- K, Sweet Miss Rissi!

A Note From Gracie

Hey All, Mom and dad are getting the pool ready and you know what that means.  Splashing kids and wet dogs.  Not a fan of either one.  Bu...
