Doppelgängers and Grimmlins

In a recent Facebook craze everyone was posting pictures of their doppelgängers. I did not pursue this line of thought as I am afraid mine might be Sophia from Golden Girls! Secretly I would like my doppelgänger to be Helen Mirren.

Amelia posted this picture.

"You look like Ivanka Trump." Amelia hears this quite a bit as she is tall, blonde and pretty like Ivanka.

The Canton Grimmlins are still cutie pies....

Mister J is learning to eat cheerios.

And this poor baby was so tired he fell asleep in his high chair. We have a picture of his dad asleep in is high chair as well. Both were cute babies.

Audrey ran into one of her class mates at Chick Fit A ( her favorite eating place) and obviously the young man was happy to see her.

On a Sunny Day in Georgia.

And what is better than NO DAVID? When I was a preschool teacher this was  a favorite book of my twos. On this page, David is picking his nose and his mom yells, Stop That This Instant. Yes, I have this book memorized.  I have several in the series upstairs in Nana's Book box and it remains a favorite with the grands young and old.  On a recent visit, Elliott read No David to Nana....Nana used to read it to him.

Hope everyone remembered to spring forward. I for one am looking forward to longer days....fingers crossed the rains will stop and we can enjoy some spring sunshine.

I think Amelia is much prettier than Ivanka! And, your Golden Girls comment gave me my first laugh of the day!!
Your grands are just adorable!!
It was warm and sunny yesterday and I spent the entire day outside!! Now that Spring seems to be here I don't want a late snow....I hope your rains stop soon too.

Oh Arlene, thank you so much for the laugh over your Golden Girls comment. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of your grands. They are so adorable. Wishing you a wonderful week!

I agree with Mary. Amelia is prettier. I would shutter to even consider mine. Not going there.
Joshua is simply adorable. He is going to give Audrey a run for the money on the cuteness factor which would be very hard to do.

She really is more beautiful even! We've been missing the rains but I won't complain. It's been great weather for getting out....well, except for the pollen! lol

I smiled all the way through this post! Those kiddos are so precious!! I don't know about "No David" but I bet it is fun to read to the little ones!

Amelia is a lot prettier than her doppelganger. Love all the family pics! Stay healthy, Arlene!

Would you believe I've never heard of the No David book series?! I must be living under a rock! Thanks for the tip!

Visits With Mary said...

Oh, those Canton grandkids are just the cutest! Looks like Audrey has her first little boyfriend :) Okay--I have never heard of No David! And I was constantly reading to my boys--really will have to check it out :)

Loving these longer days already! Spring has almost sprung up north, too. I saw my first robin yesterday.
