I'll be giving my grandchildren big squeezes and Grandma kisses tomorrow night. Yippee! After having to cancel our plans to attend the christening/Thanksgiving extravaganza we are doubly thankful we will be seeing the crew tomorrow and on to Sunday. My DIL has a huge family but they did their party thing a few weeks ago. It will be me and DH, older son, and the younger son, his wife, and their two precious kids.
I hope you all have joyous holidays and laugh too much, hug too much and…Continue
