    Short and sweet, plus the GRAND Social

    When I visit my grandsons, I take far more photos than I could ever possibly get through sharing here on Grandma's Briefs.

    In order to make use of a few in one fell swoop—and because he makes me smile—I'd like to start off your week with a trio of typical Bubby expressions.

    He's a nut.

    And I love him so.


    A whole new week starts with a whole new GRAND Social. Thank you for linking, reading, participating!

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog specifically about grandparenting, but you must be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Posts shared can be an old one or a recent one, your choice.
    • To link up, copy the direct link to the specific post you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue "Click here to enter" text below and follow the directions to add your post to the list.
    • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, please, and none you have promoted on a previous GRAND Social linky.
    • No contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
    • Adding a mention at the bottom of your linked posts, such as This post has been linked to the GRAND Social linky, is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button using the following code:


    <a href="" target="_blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


    • The GRAND Social linky is open for new posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. All bloggers who link up would be honored to have you—bloggers and readers—click, visit, read and comment.

    READERS and PARTICIPATING BLOGGERS: Please visit the posts others have linked to by clicking on the thumbnail photos. Comments are always appreciated by the bloggers whose links you visit, even if it's simply "Hey, stopping by from GRAND Social."

    Thank you for participating in the GRAND Social!

    That Bubby is a cutie! (a silly one at that!) I'm so happy to have discovered all of these Grama bloggers. You and all the links have inspired me to get blogging once again! Thank you.

    I laugh to think of,when he's dating, and his mom shows the girl these pictures.

    Bubby is a sweet scamp!

    February 4, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBarb

    Bubby is an adorable child and full of personality! I know how much you love him!

    I am happy to join in Grand social today, Lisa! I am sorry it has taken me so long to visit yout--moving and settling in has kept me away from my computer so much. It was a bigger job than I anticipated. I don't even have a couch to sit on as yet! We LOVE Colorado and seeing our grandboys more frequently!

    he makes me smile too.

    Hey Grandma! Love the name of your blog, so cute. I'm here from Homespun. I am a recent grandma--just one year--and I love it, too. Happy Monday.

    so adorable, keep sharing!

    What a sweetheart. Such a sweet time for you, I know. Thanks for another fun visit.

    February 4, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKaye Swain

    Love the photos! I used to do that to my son when he was small. Told him to make silly faces and get it out of his system before taking the "real" pics. Thing is, the silly pics were better than the "real" ones! Cherish your photos - and keep sharing them with us!
