Grandparent Day

Aurelia, one of my angels
Giving dolly some love

How do these eyes work? "How does this work?"

Stroller ride

Happy to see Mommy and Daddy!

Today I got to spend the day with Aurelia. She came over this morning and while we were together, we went on a couple of walks (she initiated my new stroller, compliments of Carol & Don, Chad's parents); played with toys - hers and mine; talked to Peppi, whom she called "birdie;" had lunch; and played some music on the piano. While we were in my cottage and she was playing, Rachel phoned and not only did we talk, but I got to hear Annika sing Happy Birthday to me (no, it's not my birthday, but I loved her little song), plus another song - I'm sorry, but I can't remember the lyrics right now - and hear her talk a little; and Josiah told me a couple of things that are on his Christmas list. I sure hope he follows up with a written list. :-)

Rachel told me Josiah had a soccer game today which they attended, and yesterday she and two of her neighbors made a caravan to the largest US base in Germany for the annual bazaar. She said they saw lots of treasures. Oh, how I would have loved to have gone along!

I love spending time with and hearing from my grandchildren. In a couple of months I should be holding my newest one. It is pure joy!

The other song was from a CD that you sent for Josiah years ago called "Tick-Tock". I used to play it for Josiah at bedtime and now I play it for Annika. It has nice, quiet lullabies that play one after another with little segues in between, so no silent spots between tracks. I like that.

We will try to get you a list!

You would have really enjoyed the bazaar. Maybe next year?
