A year after, Pride and Joy #2, Amanda, was born, this little guy joined our family. And you talk about a little guy with PERSONALITY. He had it. He was so fun to be around.
The first time he came to visit--they lived in Indiana--he was a couple of months old. Here he is with his Aunt Heidi and Uncle Brent.
Nancy and Evan came to visit quite often. We loved having them with us. There were lots of fun little short trips here and there.
Of course, his mom is a kick and she would have us all in stitches whenever they were visiting. Can you see the way she is holding him in this Christmas Eve picture ; )
I laughed when he came downstairs on Christmas morning. Look at that little face ; ) Yes, she stuffed him a little bit.
- I remember one time when Nancy came--this visit in June 1988--we were getting together to have a little reunion at Mammoth. Before we headed to Mammoth we had a family picture taken, and it just happened to be right after Pride & Joy #4 was born. I have the cutest little video of Nancy having Evan make all kinds of faces--Hamburger Face, Fish Face, and when she would say, "We're going to Wal-Mart" This picture is of "Uncle Brent", Chris and Evan.
- Whenever he would come and visit he would make me smile because he had the cutest little southern accent, and would look up at me and call me, "Grandma Onnie" with this cute little drawl and lots of emphasis on the "On" which he pronounced "Own" ; )
- He has always been quite the entertainer. Whenever there were talent shows at the school, this little boy performed--and usually won. He would lip sync and was dressed in full get up ; ) I don't think he had a shy bone in his body. (I have been looking everywhere for a GREAT picture that I have of him dressed up for one of these talent shows ; )
This picture was taken after #4 grandchild was born. It is one of my favorites of us with these cute little grandchldren--hard to believe that this picture was taken 22 years ago ; )
