Grandma Merkley's Picture

This is a picture my Grandma Merkley took almost 29 years ago.  It is of my Grandpa and me, and it has always been one of my favorites.

Grandpa & Me 

On a side note, my 6 year old son has started sleep walking, time to put locks high up on the door.   I remember those days, I still sometimes, rarely.... but sometimes still have those days. 

He just came in our room and said "I can't see...." 


Then he went into our bathroom used the bathroom then comes out laughing harder than I think I have ever seen him laugh....  Court and I look at each other and just bust up... 

"What are you laughing about?" 

He keeps laughing as he goes into the living room and starts putting on his flip-flops, then takes them off and starts  jumping on a mattress that we have set in there,

he is still laughing... 

Court says "what are you laughing about?" 

Easton mumbles something about "a movie"  he is still jumping. 

Court says "go to bed." 

He still keeps jumping...

After he tells him two more times Easton turns and runs up the stairs to bed. 


I love that critter. 

BTW, don't worry, Court doesn't sleep on a mattress in the living room, we just got given it and the boys bed isn't finished so the mattresses are temporarily being stored in the living room... ha ha, I know you were all concerned.. ;)

Very cute picture!

And that's funny that Easton sleep walks, because I remember you doing that. One time you came out into the living room when our friends were over, you stood there and stared at us forever with a blank look on your face, and then walked back to your room. We ran in there to check on you and you were SOUND asleep. I think I remember us asking you questions, but I don't remember if you responded or not. LOL.

I Love that picture~! What a special memory.

It always scares me in the middle of the night when my kids sleep walk-it was like they were possessed or something!

I used to sleep walk all the time when I was younger. Never anymore, although I still talk in my sleep. Skyler is my sleep walker! Totally cracks me up!

What I wouldn't have given to have been there to see him laughing like that! Sounds hysterical!

Grandpa has such a soft kind look in that picture. I have always loved that picture of the two of you. Funny about Easton, I would put locks too!

great pic.

Love the sleep walking. Taylor does it every now and then. The other night she came in to my room and was "trying" to tell me she was scared of something... couldnt figure it out, I think she meant a ruler. lol
