Jousting at Windmills

And the world will be better for this

that one man, scorned and covered with scars

still strove, with his last ounce of courage

to reach the unreachable stars!

=)

(That's assuming that my husband ever DOES grow up, of course...)

Our niece's baby (Sully) is in surgery today, and we'd appreciate any prayers you might like to send his way. Thanks!

I love your picture of space with your circle around the one star! That is a wonderful goal! I need to pass this on to my kiddos too! I also love the jousting!

You've got one resilient soldier on your hands. With this soundtrack, this was very amusing.

I'll be sending prayers for Sully's smooth surgery and quick recovery.

Those are the best moments. Everyone has a good time- not just the kids. But it's memories they will always remember. Thanks for stopping by today. Good to have you!

Ashley Sisk said...

That is too cute - and I'll also say a prayer for your niece.

Grandma Honey said...

OH yes, some things never change. My mother told me when I got married 36 years ago that men are just little boys grown tall. Well that's not quite right, but there is a little truth in it.

LOVE your wood floors!

Cute photos. Praying for Sully!

Roger and LeAnn said...

This post brought a big smile. Grandpa and children are the best combination. Prayers will be sent for the family and sweet baby Sully
By the way I forgot to tell you that The Spirit of Christmas Story should be made into a children's book; if it isn't already one. It brought tears; a very sweet story.
Blessings to you! LeAnn

That's a scene that was played out in our home for years! Nothing like a good paper roll fight, and the dog liked it too! Sorry to hear about Sully having surgery...hope all goes well.

Love the jousting, looks like it was loud and fun.

Stef said...

That is the best kind of jousting. Dream the impossible dream. But for now I'm kicking me some grandpa behind!

Natalie said...

Aww! How fun that looks! I love playing with my little boy and hope someday when we do have grandkids that I can be as fun and energetic as I am now..well not "as" but still .. ya know! We're kids at heart anyways too! Nice shots

Momza said...

Hope the surgery went as planned and the baby has a quick recovery!

All the best for the new year and thanks for the visits.. nick

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

Prayers your way for the sweet baby...and thanks for the jousting smile! Aren't grandfathers the best? I've been away from blogging for awhile (a mountain vacation) so I'm just now catching up.

Jess said...

Can I come visit? That place looks awesome.

What knights they are- much nicer looking than the ones of medieval times.

I hope Mr. Sully has some nice nurses to attend to him, and that all goes well.

Darlene said...

It is so neat that Sully has so many people praying for him. He can use all the prayers he can get. Such a sweet baby....he probably couldn't figure out what had happened to him, with all that pain.

As for Grandpa, I think it is so wonderful that he can play so well with the G'kids. No wonder they love to be with him so much!

BECKY said...

Loved the words and photos, Sue! I'm so sorry to hear that Sully needed surgery. I must've missed that post. Sending well wishes and thoughts their way.

Amy said...

What a perfectly wonderful grandpa! And I hope he never does grow up. What lucky kids those are that they have someone so young at heart who will play with them!
