Smiles generated by 3 year olds are definitely contagious.

This little guy has had it tough with a serious illness from birth and his parents splitting up. But he now lives with his Mom's family and has grandparents and aunts to give him lots of love.

Katie, that's great news. Lots of fun times in the future for you guys.

Laurie, when a little one like that takes to you and gives you those big smiles, it's enough to make your day. And about the Canucks...

For sure, Andy, we're anticipating loads of fun. I counted at breakfast and when the dust settles and everyone makes their appearance this year, we'll have 16 grandchildren.

Quite a crew and the good thing is that 14 of them are within reasonable driving distance. It only takes us about 6 hours to get to Atlanta. The other two live in the Maryland suburban area of Washington, DC. Now, that's a two-day drive for us. They're younger, they can come to us. Ha! Ha!

We had a beautiful day yesterday and I spent a little while outside. I thought I heard the sound of one of our little "hummer" friends. The scout. They always send one ahead to check out their summer territory. I immediately prepared their favorite feeder in anticipation of the arrival of the rest of the crew.

Well...this morning, just after breakfast, Glenn announced that he saw our little friend feeding at the feeder. That gave me a wonderful smile and I can't wait to see the rest of our summertime guests. There are 4 more feeders to put up. Can't wait. More smiles.

I love my hummers and they stay around all year long here. But in spring and summer they are more hungry it seems like than in the winter. That seems strange to me but they are what they are. We had two yesterday who insisted on diving over Etan and Livi's head as they played and the dogs really got picked on

Yeah. I think she forgot that there are two Bruins Fans here. She obviously has never seen those banners hanging in the rafter at the Garden.
