Nestled and snug in their “beds”


The grandies are going to spend 

Christmas Eve at Nana’s house!

First time in five years!

They were overnight 

on a warm November

night, but right away,

I thought of my blog

when I saw the 

M & M girls

with their

sweet little heads


Just couldn’t 


part two 

of  “t’was

    • We really had a lot of fun, reading books after eating, running to the store, coloring and dress up time, Jenny! Thanks for such a nice comment and hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

    • Jill, your warm comments throughout the year have been very special to me. I agree our time with children, in any way we have, is priceless!
      May your whole season be filled with lovely moments!

    • As I was replying to someone I mentioned this “irresistible” word, Marissa. I was turning off the television and looked at the two of them and had to grab a camera. . . This was a week ago, but we basically repeat the same things each time they come!
      Merry, happy holidays to the Cheesebergens, dear!

    • They are busy once they get here, Juan! Like a whirlwind came through! Hope you hear from Hunter’s parents and maybe get a picture text from them. I am sure it is lonely being away and then Toonce. . . hugs

  1. Thank you for thinking of sharing this photo of these two adorable little girls — dreaming of sugarplums no doubt! May we all sleep that peacefully in the coming year – with hearts carrying the innocence of children.

    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a GOOD night – for tomorrow there will be the chaos of wrapping paper torn to bits by eager little hands, excited to see what Santa has brought. Enjoy!

    • Madelyn, your comment was so heartfelt and loving, thanks my friend! The girls spend at least one night every weekend but this one was particularly frantic, ran to store, dress up, school, and play with games. Finally, reading a few Christmas books till eyes drooped, including mine for a little “nap.”
      Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year, possibly better than we may expect!

    • Madelyn, I understand what you mentioned and expectations are rather low on the most part in this country and others, too.
      I live in Delaware, Ohio. We hope that checks and balances, possibly road blocks will make next year go smoother than we expected. We can hold onto hope, don’t you think? πŸ™‚

      • We have no choice BUT to pray that our elected representatives will be brave enough to USE the checks and balances our forefathers were wise enough to put into place to forestall the worst of Trumpet’s plans.

        Well, that along with staying informed, blogging our desires and hopes for our futures – and sending emails and letters expressing our collective wishes to politicians that other Americans elected.

        Surely they can’t ALL be interested only in lining their personal pockets.

    • Thanks, the time sure does fly, dear Nia. I am definitely having better times, closer communication and special moments with who I wrote about in the summer months. . . you gave me confidence!
      Happy holidays and hope the new year continues on a positive personal level for you! Hugs xo

    • Thanks for loving this photo! I am sorry, Mike. I had replied carefully but must have not waited long enough to post my comment.
      We appreciate your kind and warm wishes for a Merry Christmas!
      Everything went nicely and looking forward to the work week flying by! Hope yours was special and you got a chance to Skype or see the grandkids. Hugs to you and Florence. Happy new year!

      • Honey, I don’t have a GD, I wish I did. You are probably thinking of a pic of me who had fallen asleep with knee pads on from gardening. Hubby snapped the pic. πŸ˜‰ ❀

      • Isn’t that funny? it could have been one of you. You would know. . . πŸ™‚

        Do you have a niece, possibly?
        Wonder why I thought it was your garden and a small relative? Maybe it was a dream. . . ❀

      • Hmmmm …. now you have got ME thinking, Robin. Huh. Was it my neighbor’s child? No neice that is small or would be found in my garden. Now you really have me curious and thinking …… LOL

      • Well, like I said I could have dreamed this but I don’t think it was someone else’s garden. It was one “you” (?) took us around to three different gardens. πŸ™‚
        Amy, don’t waste another minute since it will show up one day in the way WordPress pairs off a couple of past choices for a match to a current post.
        Happy new year! Simply relax, enjoy and maybe have your husband rub your feet! You can rub his neck. . . πŸ™‚

    • I appreciate your warm response, Luanne! I feel blessed and happy.
      I hope your Aunt Jean and those who love her will have comfort and warm moments.
      For you, your gardener, grown children and lovely mother~ a joyous new year wished from me to all! ❀

    • I was hoping it would give special moment or memories to those who viewed this.
      Hope you have a lovely celebration on New Year’s Eve, Holly. . .and more good times to come! xo

    • Thank you, Christy! I spent four Christmases in a row, with my Mom so was happy that I had a chance to spend with the grandies. My brother and SIL had their grandchildren over and they picked up my Mom to spend Christmas with them. They live ten minutes away. πŸ™‚
      I live 3 hours away and will be back the weekend before Valentine’s day.
      Happy New Year, Christy!
