The Grand Girls Are Coming!

There is one more work day before the girls come to visit for the holiday and I am so excited! We have tickets to Sam the Lovesick Snowman and of course we plan to go to the lighting of the tree. In addition I have lots of make and do activities which of course includes a Gingerbread House. If anyone has some suggestions please share your ideas. I still have 2 days to gather supplies if need be. The girls are 6 and 3. My girlfriend from work has made some special cookies as a surprise. Her baked goods and creations are amazing should you ever want something custom made. Stop by Dragonfly Custom Cakes - you really cannot imagine the artistry in sugar. (My favorite on this link is the Sweet 16 Computer).

We will be going to the tree farm and cutting down a small tree as I think the girls have always had an artificial tree. Just going to the tree farm has always been an experience for our family. This will be our Christmas celebration since they go to the other grandparents for Christmas.


  1. Dear Jojo,

    How wonderful for you to have little ones come over. Having children in one's home is like a breath of fresh air!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, it sounds like you ladies have wonderful things planned!

    P.S. love the new blog look!

  2. Grandchildren are the best, aren't they?
    I am flying to Southern CA on Tuesday to spend Thanksgiving with my middle son's family and can't wait to hug and kiss all of them. The girls are 16 and 13 now and every year brings new delights as we share our interests in art , books, current events and their multiple activities. Mind you, it would be nice to still have a little one who crawls in bed with me in the morning for a cuddle . . .
