Great-Grandma's Blond Streak

Ok, so check out this photo of Grayson. See how this spot in his hair is lighter than the rest? The underneath layer is even lighter! It's his Great-Grandma's Blond Streak!
Until now, it has only shown up in the girls in our family, but now here it is on Grayson. I'm not sure how far this blond streak goes back, but my Grandma had it, Mom has it and I have it too. It's always right here in the front and the hair there is usually a little more unruly, it's also the 1st place we go gray. When Grandma went gray, the blond streak turned white and the rest stayed gray. Mine refuses to grow more than just a few inches long, and it's very wispy and curly. I guess Grayson has always had it, I just didn't notice it until this recent haircut. Grandma would be so proud! :) I so hate that she and Grandpa never got the chance to meet Grayson or Sammy. I'm sure they would have loved the walks around Cameron Village and the hot KKD's (krispy-kream doughnuts) like I did when I was a kid.


We had a nice quiet (at least as quiet as it can be with two little boys) Thanksgiving with Grammy and Poppy. The weather was so nice that we were able to eat our dinner out on the deck. After dinner, Sammy chased a football around the deck while Michael and Grayson played Basketball. Well, that is, Grayson played ball while Michael held the net down where he could reach it!

Check out that look of concentration!
By the time, we got around to dessert, Sammy was so tired he couldn't stand him self. His award winning pout came out...
Followed by the tears.
But, a little Sweet Potato Pie goes a long way to fixing woes!
And Poppy's tickling brought the smile back!
Poppy also had Grayson laughing so hard, I was almost in tears I was laughing so hard watching him laugh. I had to fight to keep the camera steady!

All, in all, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
