I was born to be a grandma. I adore being a grandma.
Gerry and I are home from Calgary where we spent a few days in grandparent paradise. We started a tradition a few years ago of having an early Christmas celebration with the grandchildren that gets more fun with each passing year!
From watching Jaxon at skating lessons, to playing hide-and-seek with Makiya, to giving piggy back rides, playing games, reading and snuggling, it was the the BEST TIME!
Can you tell?!

“Grandmothers sprinkle stardust over children’s lives.” — Author: Unknown
“What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies.”

We received some very special news this trip!
In a few months we will be blessed to welcome a third grandchild into our family.
God is so good to us!
