Name that Grandpa

My life is so good. I am blessed FAR more than I ever deserved.

However, it makes my heart truly sad that my kids never got to meet my dad. He was an awesome guy, big in stature and in heart. A real man after God's own heart.

God chose to take him home, only months after he walked me down the aisle.

So ....... I make a conscious effort to keep Grandpa's memory alive for my kids and talk about him often.

Recently, I was chatting with my 6-year-old, and telling her an old family story. She said, "What was Grandpa's first name again?" I gave her a hint that it was a character in SpongeBob (which she knows very well)! Here's how it went:

Nat: Squidward?
Me: No.
Nat: Mr. Crabs?
Me: NO.
Nat: Sandy?
Me: NO !!!!!!!!!!!

I'd like to think that she was kidding with me, but can't be certain. For the record, his name was Gary.

That's too cute. Is this the same daughter who says David "Pinata" or is that a different one? I'm loving Pinata! And who wouldn't like David A. He really seems sweet, and the nice thing about the male singers is they don't end up getting "sexified".

Yes, this is the same girl -- she comes up with the funniest stuff! (and I don't think she even means to)
