After our small family Christmas we went to mom and dads, nathan, carina, isobel and annie meet us over for brunch then gifts. The little one's did such a great job taking turns and admiring each others loot. Molly got all kinds of goodies favorites include an art easel (so cool) kids cooking set (since we love to cook together) georgie bobo the monkey, books, sling for her baby doll, Nemo movie, clothes, slippers and manicure set. It was so hard to get good pictures, as M was moving fast!

Christmas Morning

Molly was excited Christmas morning. She was so excited about her bike and helmet, along with her waldorf doll, doll house, books, leg warmers, magnadoodle, umbrella, kaleidoscope, bath stuff and of course a chocolate santa...which needed to be sampled at 6:30, silly girl! She was simply delighted.

Girls Day Out

Molly and I have had a rough week! Molly had a stomach virus, i had bronchitis, then the stomach bug. We are now on the road to health and wanted to get out today and enjoy a girls day! She is so amazing and i love spending time with her. Tonight, when we were recapping our day, she told me i was her best pal forever. <3 I hope she always feels that way.
We went to see Mr. Stinky feet, she feel asleep on the way there. As you can see by the pictures she was still a little drowsy. Mr. Stinky feet invited her up to play with the band. It was so sweet. We then went to lunch at chipotle, one of our favorites.

My Sweet Grams

My dear sweet grams passed away this week. She was truly an amazing woman, friend and grandma. As most of you know we had a very special relationship. I was with her holding her hand as she passed. Yesterday, was her funeral. It was a beautiful fall day in the country where she grew up. I was entranced as i watched the clouds and leaves falling from the trees. I know she is with me, in my heart, and memories...and as i learned a few days ago, she is still teaching me lessons. Everyone that knew my grams loved her. As far back as i can remember she would take me to the family cemetery and we would decorate the graves with flowers. When I was 5 or so she said to me, "will you come put out flowersfor me?" i said, "sure grandma, but someone will have to drive me." How lucky for me, that it would be 30 years later... I have so many fantastic memories of my grams. I will be telling Molly stories of her grams for the rest of my life. Molly was also very important to grams. For those of you that did not know, many folks called my grams, Janey...hence Molly's middle name Jayne. :)
Molly and I went to see grams several times a month, it made my heart so happy to see the love between my grams and my sweet baby girl. The night before my grams passed, Molly and I went to see her. We knew she was not feeling well, but really did not realize how little time we had left with her. I will never forget, Molly snuggling her and bed and saying, "i love you grams....."
That love will live on, in me, my family and sweet baby Molly.
