Had such a good time with my kids. Brought Mom home with us after church and our son made omelets for everyone...except Grandma who wanted scrambled eggs. We celebrated hubby's birthday and he opened gifts.
After breakfast we skyped (sp?) my daughter in law in Turkey and got to see the beautiful view out her hotel window. She arrived safe and sound...yet tired. She is there for work - in charge of a big training meeting this week. Oh the places our kids will go.....then we skyped our daughter's boyfriend (probably future son in law) and everyone got to talk and wave. Then we took off for the Mum Festival in town at the park. Grandma has perked up. We bought mums and got Grandma a wrought iron pumpkin with a vine and orange berries on it. Nin walked around well. It's amazing how a little attention gets her up and going. Then we came home and I made dinner. We had a good time and then daughter took grandma home...guessing she slept some last night with all the activity.
Then the four of us played a couple of games of Yahtzee. What a wonderful weekend. It felt like all was right with the world. Been a long time since we just had the two of our kids together under the same roof...all to ourselves. Our son commented how restful and calming it was. They live in a big city and are always on the go. I think we are on the go...but it's more of a laid back atmosphere...and you don't have all the traffic...and it's quieter when I think of it.
Now off to wake up daughter so we can walk this AM. Just feeling so blessed for this time out in life to enjoy our adult children and spend time with them. Grandma has enjoyed herself. Daughter took her shopping Friday and they both had the best time. It warmed my heart to see them together. It reminded me of how I used to be with her. My daughter is becoming more like me.
Daughter is mending some fences with old friends. Interesting...her last boyfriend here she was kinda mean to when she broke up with him....ran into him and they hadn't spoken for 5 years and they talked some and she apologized. He told her he was glad they'd talked and wished her well. She even met up with an old girlfriend from high school and they talked some. Glad she is mending fences. Think it frees her up. Interesting to see how she has changed and how God is molding her into the beautiful lady she is.
Off to work and enjoying the times with my kids. I am so thankful God carved out this time for us.
