I said I would try to introduce you to all of my family. I am starting with Olivia because I just have to tell you about her song. She is one of the two that I care for during the week. Her daddy is on the worship team at their church so she hears many songs. Today we had to take GG(great grandma) to the doctor. As we were making the 30 mile drive home from GG's house she was singing away in the back seat. When I finally tuned in, this is what I heard."Jesus loves me this I know. He doesn't want to die all alone. I will save him cause I have superpower. Yes Jesus loves me, Yes Jesus loves me, cause I have superpower!!!

Since I am going to begin the introductions, you must know something esle about our family. Every one has a number. Olivia is #3317. Decoded it means she is the third child of our third child and our 17th grandchild. No reason for it, just that Papa likes numbers and came up with this code system. All of the older grands have their # memorized. If you look on the backs of many of our things, furniture, etc, you may find someones number attached. What ever has a number goes to whomever that particular number belongs to when the time comes to divide up the spoils.

I have had Olivia since she was 6 weeks old. She is very territorial. This year she has begun to adapt to the others, but up until now I was HER grandma and this was HER house. OHHH the fights, especially with #6518, you will meet him soon. He is just 6 weeks younger than Olivia and the jealousy was pretty bad for about a year.

Gosh, I have so much more to write, but I truly do not want to bore anyone so I guess it is time to quit for tonight. To be continued.......

Oh, yes. She and 6518 have had thier issues! But, like you said, would you rather have them fighting with each other of getting into trouble together?

That's fun having a number system. I'd love to see a family picture of the first generation 1 to 11, and a next generation with their numbers and so on. How lovely, that God has blessed you with this beautiful family. Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments.

You have darling grandchildren. Congrats. to number 1102. Kathi
