    Grand expectations, grand expressions

    In his six short weeks in our midst, Jak has proven himself to be a master of expression — as well as no fan of marathoning expectations.

    Oh so easy: Cloud dough

    Though it may seem like summer is winding down, there's still plenty of time to mess around outdoors with some cloud dough and some grandkids. And I do mean mess — which is just one reason this activity is so fun... and the primary reason it's best enjoyed outdoors.

    The know-it-all grandma and her acts of ignorance

    I'm often asked by family, friends — and sometimes even strangers — for answers and directions on a variety of topics. I'm happy to say that I can usually give them what they seek. My husband often jokingly calls me Google; my daughters consider me one of the best researchers they know.

    What a catch

    My oldest and youngest daughters, Brianna and Andrea, as well as Andrea's boyfriend, Matt, flew to the desert with Jim and me for Jak's baptism a little over a week ago.

    One of the days we were there, I gave Andrea my camera to snap pictures while Brianna and I swam with Mac and Bubby at the community water park. Upon returning home and going through my photos, I was pleasantly surprised by the following photo Andrea took of Mac practicing his swim moves.

    Today's question:

    When it comes to Cheetos, do you prefer the puffed ones or the crunchy ones?
