This is my second blog written to capture memories made with our grandchildren. The link to my first blog, "Meet Our Grandchildren," is listed below in the right hand column. Hope you have time to read some of it. Our journey to becoming grandparents has been full of adventure and much love.

Chinese New Year - 2011
Friday night we got together to celebrate Chinese New Year. We had a great Chinese dinner and yummy dessert (thank you, Connie and Ray). We passed out our Red Envelopes and gifts to the children. And then they were off and running.
It really was a fun night. Kris, Corey and Michelle spent time sitting together in front of the fire just talking. Connie, Ray and I were in the kitchen drinking coffee and relaxing. Don spent quite a while chatting with his nieces.
We were missing Papa and Zack. Papa was at a Siena basketball game. Zack had a sleepover at a friend's house. Things change. and we go with the flow. Hugs and kisses,
know that I live on, vibrating to a different measure -- behind a thin veil you cannot see through. You will not see me, so you must have faith. I wait for the time when we can soar together again, -- both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life
to its fullest. And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart . . . I will be there.
The above rainbow appeared over Amanda's garden shortly after her family planted it. Truly a sign our Special Angel Baby is watching over us.
I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, Ken, two amazing daughters, Kristen and Michelle, their husbands, Corey and Don, and five grandchildren who have touched my heart in more ways than I can ever verbalize. My fondest memories are of my Dad spending precious time with my daughters telling stories of times gone by, building forts in his living room, eating corn toasties dripping with butter. The list goes on and on. My daughters recount these memories of Grampa Harpy to their children. This blog is my endeavor to recount special times shared and many memories made with my very special grandchildren. It is my hope they will share them with others as the years go by.
