So let's start at the beginning with #1 Grandson. (The hardest part of this, deciding which pictures to use--I almost have as many pictures of Chris as I do of own children)
What can I say about this guy? I still remember the day he was born--we were in Hawaii. Look at his daddy, he is just a young kid himself.
You really need a better look at Christopher
Some of my favorite stories about him:
- he and Heidi "dancing"when we were in Disneyland. So funny ; )
- the way he would eat/dip his french fries (which we still tease him about). He would dip his fry in ketchup, take a bite, dip it again, take another bite, etc. Now you have to eat a meal with us to know, we don't dilly dally when we eat. WE GET IT DONE!!!!
- having family pictures taken and the photographer referring to him as "Pony Boy" ; )
- when he and his dad and sister came to Winnipeg for Christmas 1997 and he had his little Penny Hardaway doll. I can still remember sitting at the table eating dinner and there was little Penny--it still makes me smile.
He and Heather bought a house a few months ago. They are amazing. She is a school teacher and he works as an I.T. guy for the School District. He told me that one day as he was walking down the halls the little kids were whispering about him being a GIANT ; )
He is a great big brother. Family is very important to them. When Neal and Macy went to Zurich to visit Amanda and Darren and took baby L with them, Chris and Heather watched G-Man while they were gone. I think G-Man had a ball--and I have a feeling Chris and Heather did, too.
I am so very proud that he is my grandson and that Heather is part of our family.
