Happy Birthday Grandpappy!

 Hi Bloggers -

Here is the story on Grandpappy and this Birthday Card~
This summer, one Wednesday night after church the grandkids rode home with us to spend the night. On our travels back to home from church we go past the Dairy Queen. Of course, the grandkids want to stop and get ice cream. 
The two older grandkids - Taylor and Walker  start asking "Can we get an ice cream at the Dairy Queen Grandpa? Oh Please oh please?"  
Then the youngest, Sydney says with her sweet girly voice, "Can we Grandpappy?"  
Hubby and I almost burst into laughter over that and of course, my hubby can be sweet talked into almost anything [shhh don't tell him I wrote that] and the kids enjoyed their ice cream treat on the way home.  

Grandkids are so much fun I should have had them first! 

Enjoy your day and thank you for stopping by.
