I Love Being Mimi

The hardest thing about being gone for seven months was not seeing the kids and grandkids.  The really great thing about being Grandma or Mimi is that they miss you almost as much as you miss them.  Or at least they tell you they do!

We were able to see our gorgeous grandchildren today, after seven long months.  That is like a lifetime in Grandparent time.  One of the first thing Liv does is show me that she has drawn a picture for me.  Liv is an artist so I always love her art work.  Here is one of her masterpieces that has "everyone" in it, according to her.

From left to right: Mimi, Auburn, Austin, Papa, Olivia and Gabe and the second row has Dad and Mom.

Nathan is highly offended by this picture and I just don't see why?  Just because I am much bigger than him, first in line and colorful does not mean a thing.  Ah, Liv always knows how to make my day.  She even made our hair the same, complete with matching flowers.

Not to be outdone, Gabe asked to use my camera and took some pictures with it.  He has shown real skills in this before, and I see that he's still as good as ever which just tickles me pink.  Here is some of his work of Coco and their dog Jaeger and their gorgeous Mom, Renie:

They are just the coolest kids ever.  I think Papa kind of likes them too:

Truth be told, he adores them as much as me.  And it always so endearing to me to watch him interact with them.  We are hoping to have lots more fun with them over the next few months.

Living the life in Florida!

That IS what it's all about isn't it? We have always felt so fortunate to be able to spend quite a bit of time with our grands and travel as well.

Yours are adorable and talented too obviously!
