It's hard to realize my oldest just celebrated her 50th birthday.
So now, are grand-kids considered offspring ? I think so.

Here is Abby's 3rd grade school pic, still in that princess and fashion model phase,
favorite of the boys in class, a whiz at reading, and all around great kid.

Clodfobble, that is a great shot of a couple of adorable kids. "Match outfits"! That's great! They sure look happy. Keep takin pictures--electrons are plentiful, but your time with them at any given stage is scarce and finite.

Two nights ago BD came by to scare up a Halloween costume. As we (and by we, I mean me) were assembling it, she asked what I'd been up to. I told her I'd recently digitized some old videotapes. I told her about a particularly cute one from 1992. She lit up and I played part of it for her. She was so tickled to see herself twenty years ago she actually had me stop the playback a number of times so she could snap a (digital, what else?) picture of the screen to share with her iPhone crew.

Keep up the happy work, they look great!

Lamplighter,

That definitely qualifies as offspring. And that definitely qualifies as one cute kid. I can see how she'd be popular in school. Way to go, Grandpa!

You all have wonderful looking offspring. Apparently the cellar kidlets are high up on the cuteness charts.

holy shit, 1992 was 20 years ago?

I'm not feeling so hot right now...

@ glatt: what clod said was true. Handsome pair.
@Clod, serious adorability there, a pair of mini fobs for sure. You could get lime popsicles for them and pose them in a 60's era kitchen.

I noticed a few days ago that Star Trek: The Next Generation is in the obsolete narrow-screen TV format.



We're old, so very old.

Handsome. tiny, but handsome.

I'd forgotten about this thread.

I hate to play favorites but we need a thread devoted to pictures of Max. He is dangerously cute.

haha...he'd be very impressed to know you think so foot. I do get a lot of compliments about him and his cuteness irl as well, and because he's quite precocious he's even more endearing to most people except the ones who subscribe to the 'children should be seen and not heard' philosophy.

I'm pretty sure the other boys think they're equally as cute. lol

Katie is tiny. She weighs about 100lb and stands only about 5'3. The most lovely girl though. She's very good for Mav. Really brings out the best in him.

She's beautiful!
