The Force Is With Him!

This is a photo of my grandson Thomas dressed as “Yoda” at 6 months old for his first Halloween. He loved putting his light saber into his mouth. The man holding him is his other grandfather. The smile you see on Thomas’ face is the way he is about 99% of the time. I’ve never seen such an always-happy child. That face and that smile and those twinkling eyes never fail to delight me. I’m grateful for such a wonderful and fun grandson.

      Thank you, Manty. I knew that I would love being a grandfather, but the reality has greatly exceeded my wildest hopes. I wear a permanent smile when I’m with him.

  5. Dear Russ, you do know don’t you that when you put a photo of such sweetness you’ll be flooded with all sorts of cooing, chuckling and a host of other schmaltziness that are evoked?!!!! πŸ˜€ Thomas is a picture of perfect contentment and happiness! And I know you are just bursting with pride and love yourself! Blessings to your beautiful family! Sharon p.s I absolutely love the Yoda costume!

      Indeed I am. Thank you for your blessings. Please know that I wish the same for you and your family. I agree; Yoda was a good choice of costume.
