very little.

Standard

after a fun afternoon 

and wonderful evening

spent visiting and playing

grandies are tired and tucked in

when suddenly the tears come

missing mom and dad

and after

a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom

everyone settles in for the night

including bunny

 does it get any better than that?

“very little is needed to make a happy life.”

from a few years back

of all sitting still in one place at one time

happy grandparents day to all

with much love from peaches

thanks for reminding me what’s important each and every day.

ups and downs.

Standard

 

you know that feeling

when you fall down

on the trampoline

and keep trying to get up

but everyone keeps jumping

and you keep bouncing

and then all of you

start belly-laughing

and keep belly-laughing

and cannot stop?

 

“life has its ups and downs, but you can only look forward.”

building a giant sleep nest

no one is at all tired yet

the perfect time to bake brownies

and eat them as a late night snack

with some ice cream on top

their parents will never know.

living room.

Standard

and on the last night they’ll ever spend

in the only house they’ve ever lived

before moving to their wonderful new location for their wonderful new adventures

we celebrate by finally getting to eat in the living room without sneaking.

skills.

Standard

grandie creates his quilt

stitching fabrics of his choosing

that he’s learned to sew upon

this machine that he is using.

 his ukulele sits nearby

waiting for some play

as the sled stands outside

with hopes of snowy day.
