We are having a wonderful time at the happiest place on earth. No, it’s not Disneyland, it’s Grandparent Land!
Yesterday we celebrated Jaxon’s fourth (!) birthday with a little pirate-theme party. His mom and dad had made an amazing treasure chest birthday cake that reminded me of the many, and varied, birthday cakes I made over the years for my children. Happy memories.
Being grandparents, of course we brought a few things with us for the grands. We arrived with the car filled to almost-overflowing and will be going home with much more room! Makiya entertained us trying on all of her new outfits–all at once! She looked a bit like the Pillsbury Dough Boy by the time she was finished!
There has been lots of cuddle time with two-week-old sweet baby Peyton too. There’s nothing quite like snuggling a newborn grandbaby to fill your heart with gratitude for the miracles of life.
Today, Laurinda and I are taking Makiya to a nursery to choose plants and seeds for her very own garden that we’ll plant together.
These are the things memories are made of.
I continue to be blessed by comments from readers of Two Hearts, and in my spare moments I’m working on a few avenues for making the book more available in Canada.
The rest of the week stretches out in front of me filled with promise and all the best things.
What is your week looking like?
