let them be little

A week ago we had the privilege of having our little granddaughters stay with us for the whole weekend.It was the first time we were brave enough to have our little Summer,who is 10 months old now,stay with us for that long.We had the best time ever.It wasn't so much what we did, but just having the two of them all to ourselves for two whole days was special enough.Hannah and I made cookies, she loves baking with me. We all went to the pool(it was Summer's first time) and visited their great-grandmas.Summer has two teeth now,crawls and walks around the coffee table.

I know that many of you are grandparents and understand the joy that these little ones bring to us.Just two years ago we hadn't even met Hannah,now we have her and Summer in our lives and can't imagine it without them. I feel so lucky,so blessed,so happy and you will see by the pictures that grandpa Gord feels the same way.What an absolute joy they are.I think that I appreciate little kids even more now that I'm a Grandma. Everything just seems so precious.Does that make sense to you? Is it because they aren't with us everyday or is it that we are older now? I don't know but I just love it.

On the way taking these sweet little ones home,we talked and decided that as long as it is possible we want to have a weekend like this once a month for as long as they want to come.Expect many updates!

awesome- I remember those days when the g'kids were small- so much in deed--and I know that it was/is good for the grand kids too- they accept the generation gaps so easily and to them- we are just perfect......thanks for sharing pictures but most of all- thanks for sharing you with them

Cyndi, this is just so precious. I love those two little girls smiles and how much fun they were having. Grandpa just looked like he was having the time of his life. Aren't grandchildren the best things ever!!! Thanks so much for the slide show, I just love it. Hugs, Marty

Cyndi, this is adorable. The love just jumps right out of the pictures. Your grandbabies are just precious. My husband and I just love having our grandkids all to ourselves. It is so much more fun than when the parents are along. We always say we will do whatever they want as long as it isn't going to hurt them. In other words, if they want ice cream for breakfast, then ice cream it is. You get the idea. We always tell them they can stay up as late as they want and then they fall asleep 10 minutes later. Too funny!

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Cyndi! ;)
Thanks so very much for coming by today and saying Hello. We are both doing good.
It means alot to me for you to ask.
I hope you and your family are doing well too.

My hubby is about to take a much needed week off from work! We do have some Spring yard work planned. He says he really doesn't mind it though. LOL!
We'll see...

Your grandchildren are so beautiful! It looks like the little baby had fun swimming with Grandpa.
You are a very blessed family.

Happy Spring to all of you!
I hope your snow has stopped right?... ~Melissa :)

hello, i'm dawn from Wisconsin. found my way here thru another friends blog.

I'm a grandmother to..right now we have 3 grandaughters. We are expecting 2 grandsons this summer and i'm so excited I cant wait!

I love your blog, the picture of your dogs got me teary eyed. We rescused our current dog from the shelter about 5 years ago after our family dog passed on. She's been a great joy--and I would never think of any other way to bring a pet into my home.

I love your home to!

Hey there, thank you so much for stopping by & leaving such sweet comments about Bentley.

You have two precious little granddaughters, I can only imagine how much joy they bring to you. And, your dogs and cats, they are so, so cute!!!

Have a wonderful weekend! Nicole

Hi there, so glad that you were inspired to do the wheat grass. It is so rewarding, very little to it. About the containers..my silver dishes were about 2 inches deep and it seemed to work okay. Not sure if one inch would do, but you can experiment with it. Good luck!

Cyndi, This slide show is so precious. I love the music to go with it. They grow up way too fast. My grand-daughters live in Texas. I miss out on so much. I didn't know you were in blogland. I do remember you from RMS. Have a great day!
Hugs, Terrie/doxieluvr

DesignTies said...

It was so nice to see your comment the other day, Cyndi - it's been a while since we connected! I totally know what you mean about "visiting the marble"... when ever I'm at stores like Home Depot - or the stone warehouse I wrote about - I always have to touch the stone. Haha! I should mave mentioned that in my post :-)

Loved this post about your grandchildren... one day I'll have grandbabies to hug and spoil!

All the best,
Victoria
