Being a Grannie is so much fun. It's our reward for letting our kids live! Remember those teen years? You simply say "Good Morning" to your child and get in return a long story about why it's NOT a good morning at all for everyone. Those mood swings were terrible and we let them live. They live because God made them so cute as babies and we remember those days. We let them live because we know it will get better and that there is a reward coming. The reward is grand children! We have 2 of the best grand daughters live close to us and we get to see the girls almost every week. It's wonderful!!! But I digress.....so where was I going with this? Oh Yes, I remember now.
Last week I got a message that the youngest didn't have a Christmas Stocking to hang up and could I help. Can I help? You bet.
I went to work. First I had to remember what the colors of the Christmas stocking that I made for the oldest grand daughter so we took off to there house to take a few pictures. Any excuse to see the girls you know.
While we were there, we played with the girls and Pepere and the oldest grand daughter played with Lego robots. What fun to hear her talk like a robot. She didn't know we were coming and surprised her when we walked in the door. It was great to see her jump up and down and scream in joy at us coming in. When we left, she cried a little which touched my heart. But we were on a mission. Off to the store to get what I needed and then to find the time.
August has discovered that if he jumps on my foot while I'm sewing, I will yell and the machine goes faster. So sewing time is limited to when a) he is sleeping and b) when Hubby can keep him buy. One day after work, he fell asleep and I grab all my supplies and put this together in a few hours.
YUP! I am Super Grannie!! And I LOVE it. Have a great weekend all, Lord willing, I'll see you Monday.
