Grace, Grandma, and her aunties...


We were recently blessed with a visit from my mom and sisters. We had so much fun...especially Grace. Despite the fact that my children have never lived anywhere near family, they are absolutely in love with their relatives. I love to see them enjoy time with family, but it breaks my heart to see them so sad when we or they have to leave. Here are a few cute pics of Grace with my mom and sisters. Oh, how she loves them. It always makes me feel guilty when she asks me why they have to leave and where are they going and when will she see them again. My philosophy has to be that 'absence makes the heart grow fonder.' Grace absolutely basks in their attention. It's so cute. Notice my mom and Holly hard at work. We are always welcoming visitors, but don't think we won't make you work a little for your keep! Thanks for painting you guys. One step closer to being finished with this crazy house.

Cute pics!!! It is hard to live far away from family - I learned that the hard way when my family abandoned me when they moved to Thailand...but it was such a great lesson because I never realized just how much they all meant to me. Your kids will never take their grandma and aunties for granted!

Totally understand. I feel so bad when Evy misses her grandma and grandpa. She always cries when they leave and it breaks my heart. Love the cute pics of your mom and Grace.

So cute! Grandmas are the best-Gracie and Davy are lucky to have two sweet grandmas who love and adore them, your mom and Grandma Marilynn! Hope your house is going well!

I can totally relate too. Ellie is constantly asking when we are going to see Grandma and Grandpa. And Lucas associates every airplane he sees with Grandma's house. It's so sad! But it makes us really appreciate the time we do get to spend with them even more.
