Oh Happy Day!

OMG children are such a blessing. My son and his family were here for much of the day. It rained all day, so we didnt go to the animal park as planned. We just sat and visited, and I spent some time showing Yvonne how to do some basic things on her new sewing machine. She was pretty excited that it has needle up/down, doesnt need a foot pedal for regular sewing, automatically threads itself and has a thread cutter. Elizabeth was intrigued when it stitched Mickey Mouse’s ears out in embroidery. I think they should have fun with it.

William has grown and changed so much. He is a happy boy, but oh boy does he love his sister. His world lights up when she is in the room with him. Elizabeth will be staying with her maternal grandparents for a week, and I think William will miss her a ton…probably more than she will miss him.

Steve is a saint with kids. Did you know that? He is way better than I am when it comes to entertaining kids or spending lots of time with them. So Elizabeth ADORES him. She was all over him, all day. Up and down on his chair, move over that way, ok, now mover over this way, ok, lets play with this magnifier, oh, you need a pretend bandaid on that owie, here, lets share this pillow, no, lets put the pillow over your face so you hide from me.. …… on and on and on it went. He took a nap right after they left. He was exhausted!

Elizabeth took the next 3 pictures of Steve and our “bathroom door “, her Daddy and the “holiday lights” (we turn them on every time they come) and her Mom and brother. (note she didnt want one of me or herself!)

I got Neil to take a couple too:

THIS is the kind of day worth remembering!

    What wonderful pictures Gayle!! What a great day indeed! Those grand babies of yours are gorgeous and you looks so full of joy with them.
    What a fun looking sewing machine too and great price, Katie sure would have fun on that one. Last night I don’t know how many times she asked if I was almost finished using mine…..I do have other machines but she always wants what I’m using of course.

    So glad you had fun even with the change in plans.

    No grandbabies yet for me (thank goodness) but I am SO looking forward to seeing my sons and DIL on Thursday – we taking a family vacation and will have lots of time together.
