Grandchildren visit Santa November 27, 2018

 Olivia (4 3/4 years old) and Max (15 months old) visited Santa last week in Minnesota.  
 Wyatt visited Santa on Monday.  He's 10 months old.
This is the Christmas sock John's Aunt Mary knitted for Wyatt.  It's a tradition in the family, but this sock is bigger than any other Christmas sock she's made!

Wyatt in his house! November 24, 2018

Wyatt enjoys eating.  I think my grandson likes playing with it, too, but he was eating, and isn't too picky.  He's almost 10 months old already. 
This is Wyatt's house.  His dad loves to hunt and today put these decorations in his yard.  You can see Wyatt looking out the front door in the picture above, and I tried to make it bigger in the picture below.

The Minnesota weekend visit November, 2018

This is our grandson, Max, at day care the other day, making the face he makes when he sees a camera!  He's just started walking/toddling around and we enjoyed our time with him.  He loves to chatter up a storm and we could recognize a few words.  Max is now 14 1/2 months old.

This is our granddaughter, Olivia, trying out a new step machine at her day care/preschool.  She's 4 1/2 years old and very energetic!

October 3, 2018 Just another day....

 The Minnesota "Walker" clan (my son, Alex, Allison, Max and Olivia) in LaValle, WI, taking in one more boat ride for the year.  (Yes, it was COLD!)
 At day care yesterday, Max (13 months) whipped off his pants and used them for a pillow.  Sometimes he barely sleeps while at day care, but apparently yesterday he was ready for a nap!
 Olivia (4 1/2 years old) in her preschool room.
My other grandson, Wyatt (son of Samantha and Marty) is now 8 months old and a very jovial boy!  He's crawling the 'right' way now and gets around pretty fast.
 My mom feeding Wyatt last Sunday at her house.  He was almost asleep, so she didn't want to maneuver him differently on her lap... he's almost outgrown her lap!!!
 My son-in-law, Marty, with his son, Wyatt, on a blankie on 9/23 at Little Wall Lake.  Marty wanted to teach Olivia to hold worms for fishing (which she did!).  They caught a few small fish and threw them back into the lake for another day.
 Marty, Wyatt, Olivia, Max and Allison on the blankie at the lake.  I REALLY love it when I can see all 3 of my grandkids together.  "My cup runneth over."

Grandchildren September, 2018

 This is my youngest grandchild, Wyatt, when he was visiting our house  last Sunday (because his cousins came from Minnesota!).
 This is Olivia (4 1/2 years old) with her brother, Max, just over a year old, on a slide in Minnesota.  It looks like Max is FLYING off that slide, but I was told he was fine after landing on his behind....
 Wyatt at his house on September 18th.
Max at day care today (9/27/2018) STANDING on his own.... he crawls so fast to get where he wants to go that the fascination for walking hasn't been that tempting for him.
 Max and Wyatt at my house mid-August.
Olivia on her first day of 4K (at their day care).  She likes school.

CATCHING UP!! July 22, 2018

 So my daughter thinks I should start blogging on a more regular basis again.  (Above) This is Wyatt at my mom's house today in Des Moines celebrating his parents' birthdays.  That's his grandpa John behind him.  Wyatt is almost 6 months old now!  
 This is my nephew's daughter, Adeline, with her mom, Elysce.  She's 10 months old and has a mouthful of teeth already....
 That's Olivia on the left (our granddaughter), Harper (my great-niece) and Audrey (also another great-niece).  Harper is the oldest but they are all three about 4 1/2 years of age.  They were in our boat on Little Wall Lake on June 30th.   They didn't have to coach them into smiling---they had a great time on the boat and on the tube!
These are our grandsons at Little Wall Lake on June 30th hanging out while the bigger kids got to go boating...  That's Max on the left (10 months old) and Wyatt on the right.
Wyatt was baptized on July 1st at our church in Stanhope.  This is after the ceremony and lunch before they were leaving our house...  From left:  Samantha (Wyatt's mom, our daughter) with Wyatt, John with Max, and Marty with Olivia (Marty and Sam are married).  Olivia and Max belong to my son, Alex, and his wife, Allison, who is on the really far right side of the picture.  (They were gathering things to go home!)

Happy Birthday Dad!!

 My dad turned 88 yesterday (2/15/2018) and this is him last Sunday holding the newest great-grandchild, Wyatt (Sam and Marty's new baby, born 5 weeks early on 1/30/2018).
 It was a baby-admiring weekend in Des Moines last weekend when Alex/Allison brought their two kids (Olivia, who turned 4 last Saturday, and five-month old Max) to Iowa to meet Wyatt.  (My mom is on the left, Sam, holding nephew Max and Allison holding her nephew Wyatt.)
 Grandpa John and 'his boys'; Max and Wyatt
 The youngest Great-grandchildren:  Max, Adeline (5 months old), Olivia and Wyatt.
Adeline and Wyatt.... there's a little difference in size, too (and age....).
