My two year old twin grandsons,
are not the only ones who are tired!
Covid may be stopping my travel,
but caring for these guys while their parents work remotely,
is keeping me busy!
Gotta run! Cheers to you from The Holler~
Note: The Holler is being hit by a series of ‘atmospheric rivers’ of dearly needed rain that intermittently ices up our wi-fi antenna and shuts down our internet for days at a time. So please excuse me when I disappear.

These cookie faces are precious! Precious!
Awwww…..so appreciated. Children are so incredibly precious დდ
Cuties. My boss has a twin and we have to staff members who have twins on teens and the other pre-teens.
Twins are awesome! My best friend in elem school was a twin, and in high school, and my first boyfriend was a twin. So I have experience! 😉 😉
You look like you don’t have time for the internet anyway 😂 🤣
They are adorable. Enjoy them while you can. My twin grandchildren (male and female) are 27 years old now Amy granddaughter finally got married this last October and my grandson is still doing graduate studies in Colorado at CSU but I still enjoy the times we have together whenever we get together.
Oh my gosh! You have twin grandchildren! How amazing is that. They sound wonderful დდ
Yes, I think they are pretty wonderful too. I like to think I had a big part in helping to raise them as I did so much baby sitting and took care of them when my daughter and husband worked. Chris is majoring in Computer Science at CSU and Kristen is a radiology tech at a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado.
You did good my friend დდ
Thank you Shey. Children are adorable. დდ
Yes, they are so incredibly sweet. დ
Merci beaucoup დ
Oh they are so lovely! Lucky them (and their parents) to have you as the family photographer.
Love to you Alison and thank you დდ
oh the joy! and what a gift to be with them and help the parents a bit
Yes! Smiling hugely. They do this. Thank you დდ
Well they are all kinds of adorable Cindy!☺️
They just amaze me….. დ დ
You are in a privileged position to be able to look after these delightful-looking chaps – even though they must keep you on the hop! Enjoy every moment.
Yes. Very true. Being with them is a privilege, and helps with my personal exercise program (which I actually have now, thanks to them!) 😉 😉
I bet they are! Have fun and try to avoid exhaustion! 😉
We all enjoy our naps! 😉 😉
Adorable kiddies, Cindy. A silver lining for sure. We are in the same boat and love it. We sure sleep well at night.
How wonderful that you are. It is such an opportunity to become closer to your grandchildren დდ
Oh how sweet they are! But caring for 2 year olds is a trip in itself.
Very true!! An expedition type trip 😉 😉
Aw…they’re so cute! Bundles of fun. Bet they keep you on your toes 🤣😘
They are excellent exerciser motivators!!! 😉 😉
They are adorable Cindy… treasure every moment 🙂 x
I will Carol and thank you! Life flits…. დდ
Thank you very much Leyla დდ
They’re adorable 💕
Grazie mille Kathy დდ
Are they ever darling! You are so lucky, Cindy!
Merci beaucoup mon! დდ
Yes. Innocent and sweet დდ
Awwwww… So adorable!!
Thank you. They are incredibly sweet დდ
Ever so cute! 🙂
As to rain: can’t you send some our way?
Take care, and stay healthy,
Thanks my friend. We need the rain so badly and it is pouring now! დდ
How wonderful, Cindy…keeping you on your toes, I bet!
I’m getting lots of exercise! 😉 😉
Adorable! Enjoy – they grow quickly! 🙂
Thank you Meggie. It seems like just yesterday that my children were this age დდ
They are precious Cindy. Enjoy it as we know that the time flies so swiftly.
Time just flies faster and faster doesn’t it…. დდ
Love those Harley Davidsons! I bet the boys love being spoiled by their Grandma 🙂
It is so much fun to spoil them! დდ
They are heartbreakers! დდ
Lovely pics – you have your hands full there
I definitely do. Cheers to you Derrick დდ
My twin grandsons were that age yesterday and just as charming. Unaccountably, they’re now 15. Don’t blink!
Wow! Life is amazing and fast!! დდ
How absolutely adorable! One blue eyes, and one brown? 🙂 🙂 So very lucky, Cindy! I wish I didn’t have water between me and mine.
I hear you Johanna. I wish you were closer to your grandchildren დდ
I’m sure they’re keeping you really busy…😀 but I’m sure you’re loving the engagement.🙂
I am loving the time with them! დდ
How gorgeous are they! You are sort of lucky to look after them and to have them close to you. Enjoy, they clearly do!
Thanks much my friend. They add joy to my life დდ
We say Mashallah( is an Arabic word. What God has willed has happened) :), when we say how cute these little grand-twins of yours are. 🙂
How beautiful and thank you my friend დდ
liebe Cindy, das war toll es ansehen zu können, viele Grüße von mir zu dir, Klaus
Vielen dank mein lieber Freund Klaus! დდ
Reblogged this on Musings on Life & Experience and commented:
Darling pictures of Cindy’s twin grandsons.
Hugs to you thoughtful friend დდ
Aaaawh! What lovely sweethearts! <3
Thank you and they are incredibly sweet დდ
Thank you for sharing, Cindy. They are too cute and I am certain, they can be a handful. 🙂
Yes, especially when they run fast in opposite directions! 😉 😉
Thank you for sharing.
Your grandsons are just adorable! They must keep you hopping.
Literally. We play hopscotch. For some reason they find it hilarious to see me hopping….I can’t imagine why! 😉 😉
Oh, that’s funny! 😀
Super cute!! They look like a fun-filled handful of joy and mischief!
That it exactly what they are, and they cook up plots together!! 😉 😉
They are absolutely precious!
Thank you very much. They are. All children are the best of us დდ
You’re most welcome and yes, that’s true.
Thank you. If we don’t take care of everyone’s child, what does that say about us. დდ
Yes. It does დდ
What a delight and so cute
They are simply adorable. Enjoy!!
Merci beaucoup mon ami Darlene დდ
Adorable photos! And good luck with keeping up with two two-year-olds!! Phew.
It is very much akin to herding cats….. 😉 😉
I bet it is!
It is most beautiful and interesting children age, but it lasts not so long. Enjoy and be happy to spend as much time with them as possible. In couple years they still will be your grandchildren, but it is going to be absolutely different experience. I know what I am talking about and I missed that happiest time in my life.
Beautiful boys. God Bless them.
Awwww, I miss it already when I hear you say this my friend. God Bless you and your family Alexander დდ
Aw, Cindy, they are soo adorable! How wonderful that you get to spend that time with them!
Thank you Linda. It is a joy to be able to really get to know them დდ
Too cute. We are fortunate to have a park playground 5 minutes walk away where we can often see young families with young children that dash about everywhere. Why walk?
Exactly! Why walk someone when you can run, and why not laugh watching Nana run and try and catch you! 😉 😉
Oh my goodness. They are so cute! Enjoy your time with your grandsons.
Thank you very much. They are so very sweet დდ
I can’t believe they are two already. They are adorable little towheads! 😉 who look like they would keep you VERY busy! <3
At least I don’t have to worry when I eat one (or three) of the chocolate chip cookies I made for them! 😉 😉
They are too cute! Enjoy and hope the rain is just enough without being too much. Crazy weather this month. The mountains surrounding the Phoenix valley are dusted with snow. We are grateful for the much needed moisture. 🌵
The wind has knocked down 15 giant sequoias in Yosemite. It is fierce. Stay safe and warm დდ
So adorbs, Cindy!
Oh, I am going to call them this now. “Come on adorbs, Let’s go……” 😉 😉
They look adorable Cindy! Thanks for sharing their cuteness! 😋
Thank you for appreciating them Brad & cheers to you my friend დდ
I hope you get your naps!
That of course is a saving grace, when they sleep, I sleep. Take good care Brad დდ
OH MY HEART, Cindy!! 💙💙 What a perfect pair to distract you from the world. Keep safe during the torrential rains.
They are so loveable and you are right, wonderful distraction from our too scary world. The rain, hail, wind and ice is something else. The wind knocked down 2000 year old sequoias in Yosemite which is a tragedy დდ
That is so sad about the sequoias. 🙁
Yes. They are our ancient sentinels დ
What cuties — yes, you have your hands full!!
Thank you Debbie & I do indeed დდ
They don’t look like each other at and but both lovely wee boys.
Thank you Katherine. They are quite different for twins, but very bonded to each other which is so sweet to see დდ
They are just too cute, Cindy!❤️
Thank Eugenia, so sweet too, like all innocent, sweet, little children დდ
Most welcome! 😊
Grazie Sarah დდ
They are ADORABLE!!!! I wouldn’t do anything else if I had those two around. I get the intermittent internet. Down here in Sleepy Hollow, we have that problem no matter the weather. Glad to hear you are getting much needed rain but golly, all at once! Weather is so weird these days. Have fun being the Grand ma photographer. 🙂
I like you emphasis, Grand ma!! You rock Marlene. The weather is incredible, wind, hail, ice. 15 giant redwoods got knocked down in Yosemite which is so sad….Stay safe and warm დდ
I saw that about the redwoods and was heart sick. Our winter is just too warm. Summer will be a doozy with more fires, I’m afraid. Hug those grand babies and enjoy the ride.
Will do Marlene and you stay safe my friend დდ
So cute, Cindy!
Much appreciated Susan & cheers! დდ
Oh, my gosh…how absolutely adorable. <3 And what a lot of work…LOLOL…as much as all the enjoyment. Have fun. I think they should make kids toys for adults…looks like a lot of fun.
I play with them and their toys. I think, who says the toys are not for Nana too!! 😉 😉
awww so cute.
Thank you Charlotte. They have that precious innocence of two year olds and they adore each other დდ
Oh the joy of grand children and great-grands! The blondest looks like you! You don’t need to worry about wonderful photos to share to cheer us all.
Love to you Eileen & stay safe and well my friend დდ
They are beautiful granchildren, Cindy!
Thank you Lavinia & cheers to you my friend დდ
What cuties. 🙂
Grazie mille Dani დდ
Merci beaucoup დდ
Sweet pictures 🙂 so cute!
All the best. Keep well
The Fab Four of Cley
🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Thank you my friend. You four stay safe and well too დდ
Oh my gosh, they are so sweet! I have no doubt those little ones are keeping you very busy!
It is all good. I get to eat more cookies and not gain weight! 😉 😉
Cindy they are adorable! They are just at the “very busy” age so I can see how you would get tired.
Enjoy them now, because as you know, they grow up so fast.
We do know don’t we, that bittersweet feeling of those little toddlers that used to be ours, now all grown up with toddlers of their own დდ
Cindy, I’m going to try painting them. Just can’t help it. If it goes well you can have it.
Oh my gosh! How awesome is that. I am honored and touched. Hugs to you and thank you! დდ + დდ
Grazie mille დდ
So cute! What a bliss to be with such lovely twins. Enjoy these precious moments Cindy, they fleet with the blink of an eye!
Thank you my friend. I know how time flies, faster and faster each and every year! დდ
Way to go granny. It has been a blessing to be able to spend more time with my 2 1/2 year old grandson by helping his parents with daycare challenges during this pandemic. Not always great, but the opportunity is priceless.
Ahhhh, you are another conscriptee in the volunteer child care force! It is a priceless opportunity to really bond with and get to know your grandchildren დდ
Cindy, they are adorable! However, I can see that they might be tiring. I looked after one two-year-old and found it exhausting! Have fun, Grandma!
It’s good they like to nap, because Nana likes to nap too!! 😉 😉
Your grandsons are adorable!
Awww, thank you Rosaliene & cheers to you დდ
They are gorgeous little boys and look quite different!
Yes, they are very different twins! დდ
Oh – cuteness, Cindy! I understand if you are full up!
I tend to nap and cook on my “days off!” 😉 😉
Utterly adorable, Cindy.
I see that when we can’t travel out and about, we can still travel within!
Yes indeed. There is beauty all around us დდ
You rock Resa დ
I laughed out loud when I heard that you were having to run to keep up with your two beautiful and joyful grandchildren. I was reminded by the thought by Carl Sandburg “A baby is God’s opinion that the world should go on.” Yes!!! Have a wonderful time, Cindy! So happy for you.
Sandberg is wise and correct. Children are the best of us. Hugs to you Rebecca დდ
They’re so cute and I can well imagine how busy you are chasing them. They’ll keep you young. 😍
They are an excellent exercise regimen! 😉 😉
So sweet… <3 Enjoy the magic! xoxoxo
Thank you Bette. I am! Take good care my friend დდ
All love and sweetness!
Yes. Which is what the whole world, run by people, should be. დდ
Sending hugs. 💕💕💕
Visa versa 2UX2 დდ
Nice to be making sweet memories during tis time! What cuties!
Yes. They are sweet relief დდ
Yes. Thank you Donna დ
You must surely be busy with these fine lads to keep you entertained. Ps…hope the WiFi keeps up for you.
They are extraordinarily entertaining, especially whilst running in two different directions!! დდ
Might be time for a “split personality “ so you can go in two directions at once.😃
So cute 😍😍😍
Grazie mille დდ
They are so cute 🙂
Thank you. They are heart stealers! დდ
Who keeps you more busy, the twins or Herbert? 🙂
Laughing….. Herbert and the twins are buddies which surprises me. They are mutually respectful of each other დდ
Just precious! What a JOY!
Fae! How wonderful to see you here my friend! They certainly add double jolts of joy to my life. I hope you and your family are staying safe & well my friend. Love to all of you დდ
They are adorable! You are blessed! I especially loved the picture of them headed off down the path on their little vehicles. Off to explore just like their Grandmother!
Awwww, thank you Kathy! They are intrepid little explorers. Thank you for making me smile my friend დდ
Merci beaucoup mon ami Jennie დდ
De rein, mon ami.
Adorable! Thank you for sharing 🙂
Thank you, Cindy for sharing these precious photos with us!
I appreciate your thoughtful friendship Amy. Take good care დდ
Oh, those smiles, Cindy!! 😀😀 What a joy for you to look after your precious grandsons – they look adorable and full of charm and joy of life! It must be wonderfully uplifting! Glad you got the much-needed rain – wish I could send you some from here!😀
Thank you for such thoughtful comments Annika. I will swap you rain for sunshine my friend 😉 Stay safe & well დდ
Cookie faces never looked so handsome!!!!
Smiling…. Thank you. They are such sweet little guys დდ
OH SO CUTE!!!
Grazie mille დდ
They are so beautiful, Cindy!! And I can only imagine how tired you must be. I had my son very young…and whenever I am around young children now…I know why!!
Sweet Blessings…hope all is well. <3
Blessings back to you Lorrie. The twins are making me young again! Stay safe and well my friend 😉 დდ
I am so happy you get to share your time with them, Cindy 😊🧡 Sweet Blessings
Beyond adorable, Cindy!
Merci beaucoup mon ami Terri დდ
How sweet are you all able to get together out that way? Glad to hear you are getting some weather out your way seems ours is at our doorstep. Stay safe!
Hi Eunice! A fourth storm came through last night. Stay safe & warm my friend დდ
They are both so adorable – it’s great that you are able to wear yourself out looking after them. ❤️
Smiling! Two year old twins are an excellent exercise regimen დდ
Double dose of cuteness!! 🙂 🙂
Visa versa 2UX2 Carmen დდ
Omg, two cutie patooties! What a joy it must be to be able to spend time with them. Take it in. They grow up fast. <3
Thanks much Debbie & cheers to you my friend. Stay safe & well დდ
Back at you დ
hab einen gute Tag, Klaus
Danke und alles Gute mein Freund დდ
Cute grandchildren 🤩💖
Thank you Luccia. Every child is the best of us დდ
with twins usually one is more devilish!
They are “practically perfect in every way.” Just like Mary Poppins….. 😉 😉
Of course they are and a joy to be around I bet Cindy!
They are indeed დდ
Wonderful post, Cindy, filled with love and joy and hope.
Awww, love & hope to you my friend, x2! დდ
Such cute little guys. Grandsons really are the best (though mine are mostly bigger than me now lol!)
When my children were little, I couldn’t imagine them grown up. Now it is the same with my grandsons! დდ
I know what you mean!
Precious kids… compliments to you and their parents.
Very kind and much appreciated. Thank you & be well my friend დ
These two are so cute. They look like they could keep a grandma on her toes!
They definitely are an excellent exercise regimen, X2! 😉
missing my wee one too…but soon I hope the roads will be spring worthy ~ little angels 👼
I hope you see they soon Hedy! დდ
Merci beaucoup დ
So cute and adorable! Enjoy your time with them. They grow up so fast.🙂
Thank you Beverley. Children, to me, seem like precious gifts, sent to help give us an opportunity to get our priorities straight დდ
Amen. I agree. 🙂
Awww, thanks much Imelda & cheers to you დდ
You are so fortunate have these adorable little twin grandsons..
Yes. Thank you. They have completely captured my heart. დ
Adorable, Cindy! Enjoy, they grow so fast! And in this case “twice” as fast 😊 💕
They do indeed. Thank you Felipe & Happy Valentine’s Day! დ
Happy Valentines, Cindy! We decided we’re celebrating it all week 😊
How wonderful! Happy Valentines week to you and yours დდ
Thank you, Cindy! ☺️
thank you so much🎶 I am really grateful for you, your photos are really beautiful❗️
I am touched by your kindness. Thank you very much & be well დ
I look forward to working with you🎸🎵
Total cuteness. But I can see how they would keep you busy. 🙂

They are super cute!
Thank you. They are very sweet little people დდ
Such sweeties. <3
Awww .. they are super cute. Love to both boys. 😍😍😍
Love flying back to you დ
Oh Cindy, how wonderful to see your grandkids and twins. So much to photograph. I am busy too helping my daughter with second baby and a three year old. The imagination is incredible as she plays stories now. And for me fun but can be exhausting. It is certainly a precious time.
I can so relate….I thought these were supposed to be the leisure years!!! They are so adorable though დ
Yes, have just had a day of it!
