Hello, my name is Brenda. I just starting blogging a few months ago and am finding out that I enjoy doing this very much! It's a challenge to find things to write about. This Mosaic Monday, I thought I would tell you about my youngest granddaughters and a little about myself.
I love taking photos and changing them slightly to bring more flare. I love art and being creative. I also love my family very much and spending time with my granddaughters.

These are my youngest granddaughters. Since we live close to each other, I do get to see them and I take them to church on Sundays. My other grand children (1 girl, 3 boys) and great-granddaughter (belongs to the 1 girl) lives far away. Sad to say that I don't have any pictures of them to share with you.

The youngest granddaughter says to me, "BB, do you know how much I love my family?"  I said, "No, how much?" She said, "100%! And I love cookies 10%, french fries 15%, but I love my sister 150%!" She sure has her percentages down!!

These girls are the light of my life!! They are energetic and have big imaginations. I love to watch and be a part of their energy and everything they do. I am exhausted by the time they leave.

Both the girls are dancers; ballet, tap, jazz... They both have auditioned for the "Nutcracker" again this year. They both now have a part in this awesome production.

The girls love acting and being creative. They are animated at just about everything they do. They make my world a better place.
The older sister said to me, "Do you know that I have 4 stomachs?" I said, "No, really?" She said, "One for junk food, one for healthy food, one for my families cooking and one for other people's cooking." I laughed, but then she said, "I have five stomachs; one more for everything else!"  I said, "YEAH, FOR TICKLING!"
And it was on!!!

Our favorite shopping place is the Dollar Tree. I tell them that they both can pick out three things each. They beg for a fourth, but I tell them they have to make up their minds and put one back that they really don't want. Watching them looking over the items to make that decision encourages me. There are some things in this life that we can do without. We just have to make up our minds to what is more important.

We love looking through the purses. The girls will pick a few they like just to model them for me, while I take picture after picture. Then we go back to the house where they try on my makeup. We also get out the markers, crayons, color pencils, and paper to create something fantastic! 
It's always a fun day when they are around.

I am linking with "In Other Words and Pictures" and "Little Red House" for this Mosaic Monday.
