A Dose of Joy...


Trying to catch up around here after being gone for a week is crazy; and, I had to have a quick reminder of the dose of JOY that week allowed.


These two Little Men have so much fun with their water table.


Reminds me that one year ago, the Little Man and I played for hours in the water waiting on his baby brother to arrive and get home.


Sweet, sweet joy...


I will be looking for something in my day to give me a joyful attitude like they have here...


Driving Jubilee to tend some of my chores, while listening to Adele might do the trick!!  ;) 

I am wishing a joyful moment for each of you today...

Tanna I always love your uplifting posts. There is the joy - in those beautiful boys. That water table is adorable. Bet they just love it! Wish I could crank up on the music at my office - it's such a bore :( Have a lovely day!!!

Just what the doctor ordered--"take two of those sweet boys"!! I think I'd have fun with that water table!! I'll be thinking of you running around in Jubilee while I'm out in Ruby to pick up my friend who'll be visiting for a few days. I just might treat us to Adele. Her cd was a gift for Mother's Day.

Best,
Bonnie

Adorable...and what a neat water table. Isn't it amazing how much JOY that our grandchildren bring us?
Glad that you got your dose of happiness this morning....Have a super great day.

Donna said...

Just what I needed, Tanna. I'm going out to find my joy now...and perhaps spread a little around for others, too.
Littlest man is getting so big you might need to think of a new 'name' for him soon.
Have fun in Jubilee!

I love Adele! It certainly looks like they're enjoying their water table!

Thank you, thank you, Tanna, for such moments of joy. I needed that to strat this day. I always love seeing your Little Men. It would be nice to be able to just go back to that simple time, wouldn't it? But then, we wouldn't have these new kinds of joy.

Tanna ~ Isn't WATER just the most delightful "TOY" for kids of all ages. These pictures just make me smile from ear to ear.

Our grandsons 11 and 13 can spend hours in our back yard with those big water guns.... Yeah for Water.

Ana said...

Oh Tanna, your Little Men are just the cutest. So sweet. I can just feel it in your words, the tremendous amout of joy these little boys bring to your heart. Love the pictures. And love the picture of Roo in his clown wig. Too adorable. Sending you a great big hug.

Much love,
♥Ana

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

Such FUN! And, of course, they are super cute!

Kelly said...

One thing that I've found about being around small children is how they really live in the present. It's a good reminder to us adults who are always thinking about our "to do lists" etc. Your grandkids are so adorable playing together like that. That's the nice thing about having them close in age. They have each other for companionship. I can see why you love being with them!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Are they just the cutest, sweetest little guys? Love the water table, that will keep them entertained for a while, I'm sure!
Have a great day!

Can just hear those squeals of laughter while playing!

What cute smiles!

It's Just Dottie said...

OH! To be a child again!!!
What joy that you could share it on that day with them.
Smiles, Dottie

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, These pics are adorable. I bet that water table keeps these little ones cool and happy for hours.
They look like they are having such a good time!
These are good memories. Blessings, Catherine

Our problems, obstacles in life are nothing when we look into the face of a child who doesn't know worry or strife. They are carefree, and smiling to living in the moment. We can all learn alot by looking into the eyes of a child.

God bless the rest of your week.

This blog is, indeed, full of joy! And cuteness, and innocence, and hot summer days! Those water tables are so cool, the kids just love it! I have seen combination water and sand tables, but I would think that would soon turn into mud. Hey, he is actually drinking some of the water! We LOVE Adele, and just watched her London convert on T.V. the other day.

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Ahh... that is a wonderful good dose of joy Tanna!!

Betsy Brock said...

Oh, they are adorable...and having such a good time!

Kate I said...

Oh Tanna, your little grandsons are sooo sweet! And there's really nothing better to amuse children than water...it's just the best!

You inspired me so much with your post focusing on Joy today, that I decided I wanted to do something similar...

podso said...

These memories must fill your heart with joy! (and the pics). What precious boys. And nothing better than water play. But I know what it's like to be away for even a few days ... just so much to catch up with.

Christine said...

I can almost here their giggles!

Jubilee, what a cute name for your car. I listen to Alele while driving Alice,too.

Amanda said...

Those boys do know how to enjoy themselves, don't they? My goodness they make me smile! Love the thought of you cruising around town in Jubilee while listening to Adele. It's the little things... xoxo

Chatty Crone said...

Makes you want to be a kid again! Love, sandie

Farida said...

Those are sweet treasures indeed and like you, I always try to be sanguine with the things I have at present just like the kids :)

I chanced upon your site from Sandie's. Looking forward to visiting your blog again!

Take care, Farida :)

Debbie said...

Oh my! Just looking at this post everyday would be enough for me! Such sweet, sweet smiles and I'm sure plenty of giggles. (Love the comforting look of the neighborhood, too.) I can tell you were all so happy to be together. Wishing you happy days this weekend. Take care, Tanna.

Tanja said...

This lovely fotos are Happiness pour! You are bless to have it and you do enjoy this! I fill up from you this positive emotions. Thank you so much for share it with us!

Jerry said...

That's so very uplifting Tanna!

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

You truly caught the JOY through your camera...now enjoy Jubilee and thanks for sharing...I am setting here with a smile on my face

Debbie said...

I love this! Those boys are the face of what God intends for us to be. They take pure delight in the common place. THAT's what I pray daily to be.

I'll be out looking for joy in my Ebenezer. I'll give a toot toot to Jubliee as I pass you on the Joy Road.

Let's face it. People who name their cars are just destined to be happy people. We're destined to have blonde hightlights too, but that's a whole different story.

Cindy said...

Thanks for the reminder to find joy in my day, Tanna, I am missing my little ones so badly that it's hard to be joyful sometimes.
Your two little ones are so precious and so beautiful, they do make me smile just seeing their joy.
Have a joyful weekend.
Hugs, Cindy

Mary said...

They are such beautiful children and I understand the joy they bring you. It sounds like you really enjoyed your week with them. Those smiles say it all :-). Have a great day, Tanna. Blessings...Mary

Dana said...

Beautiful pictures. Hope you had a joy filled day!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Entertaining boys at that age is so very easy -- anything to do with water, or sand, a pail and a little shovel and they are good to go. When my boys were little, we had a blow up pool at one end of our balcony, and a popup tent on the other end -- they had so much fun out there. Wishing you a joy-filled weekend. Tammy

Pondside said...

Tanna, it just doesn't get any better than that!
We had our dear little 3 and 4 year old grandsons for two weeks over the wedding, and I can't bear to change their bed linen from the guest room now that they've gone back east. I love to go up and see the fire engine and trains bed lined and the teddies on the pillows. I'm going to have to get tough with myself!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

It looks like they had a wonderful time with water!

What an absolute joy to find 'such joy' on your blog in my first time here. I was instantly smiling with these two little guys having such fun. THIS is what life is really about. Thank you for sharing these moments and allowing me to treasure them right along with you.

What a pleasure to meet you.
