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.

Thanksgiving Day ~ 2012

Our Thanksgiving Day was wonderful, but challenging this year. Shelley found a great way for us to recall things we are thankful for in our lives. We each took two leaves, wrote something we were thankful for on each and hung them on a typically fall tree, naked of its own leaves. If  I could relive Thanksgiving, I would write on one leaf, "I am thankful for chemotheraphy."
Hugs and kisses,

Our Special Day ~ Emily and Me

Emily and I decided to have our special day on Monday, November 12th, which was Veteran's Day. Our day started with Papa chauffeuring us to Crossgate Mall where we "put together" our bride bunny whose name is Brownie. Emily got to put Brownie's heart in her chest just before the last seam was sewn. Then we giggled the entire time we dressed Brownie.

Our next stop was at Chicago Uno for lunch. Em had macaroni and cheese she said tasted just like Aunt Shell's. Can't beat that. I had a salad filled with yummy grapes, dried cranberries and sesame seeds. Of course, Em had to help me eat it. Next we stopped at the candy store. We paid $15.00 for what would have cost me $.30 in the olden days; meaning when I was Em's age.

Our last stop was at Bath and Body Works. We got all kinds of foamy soap to wash our hands with. Of course, we had to stock up on the fruit scents of their pocket anti-bacterial hand gel.

We had a great day. We did fun things; we laughed a lot; but the best part was spending the whole day together. Can't wait to do it again.
Hugs and kisses,

Halloween ~ 2012

How your Halloween costumes have changed over the years. There was Tigger, various princesses and now I'm not sure who you are supposed to be! I know we all still have a great time eating homemade chili (thanks, Aunt Shell) and laughing a lot. What I find funniest is you now Trick or Treat in Springbrook development where Nana and Papa or Shelley and Don lived when you all came home to us. Now it is our turn to tantalize the infamous Mr. Rogers! What goes around, comes around.
Hugs and kisses,
