Queen Elisabeth

Last weekend my wife and I made a trip to Baton Rouge to see Queen Elisabeth. We had been wanting to see her so when we had the opportuninty we took it.

When we arrived, Queen Elisabeth gave us a royal welcome. I was surprised at how vivacious she was. She smiled at us and her eyes sparkled as she talked to us.

Queen Elisabeth

My newest grand daughter is named Elisabeth, and her Uncle John Bridges has dubbed her Queen Elisabeth. She is definitely royalty to me. We refer to her sisters as Princesses. They love to dress up in their Princess gowns and pretend to be Disney Princesses.

Autumn and Rebekah

The Princesses love their new baby sister a lot. They don't seem to mind that she is a Queen.

When I look at Queen Elisabeth she reminds me so much of the way her Mommy looked at that age. I just had to dig out some of the old photos from when her Mommy was a baby to compare.

I was honored that Queen Elisabeth took time from her busy schedule to spend with me. She even allowed me to have my picture taken with her. I will treasure it forever.

I am looking forward to my next visit with Queen Elisabeth. I will get to see her again in a week.

God Save The Queen

  1. Queen Elisabeth and her two sisters are all sweet little darlings. And you are a blessed Grandfather, but you don't need me to tell you that.

  2. What a sweetie! They are all beautiful. It was really hard to tell from your post whether you really like your granddaughters... .NOT!

  3. All your queens and princesses are beauties!

  4. What a cutie! She has her grandpa's smile. :)

  5.!! She is a doll. Queen Elisabeth, indeed! :o)

  6. The Queen really didn't fall far from the tree. She is her mother's daughter.
    Wonderful picture of the three and also the one of the proud grandpa.
    Enjoy that blessing.

  7. How sweet she is! That photo of you and "the queen" will be treasured, I'm sure. Blessings on all of you!

  8. How precious! And also sweet that her grandpa is so much in love.
