My Favorite Day of the Week

Wednesday, November 18, 2009      2 comments

Wednesday is my favorite day of the week for one reason. My 2-1/2 year old Grand-daughter spends from 4PM till around 8PM with us. From the minute she bursts through the door (and I do mean BURSTS!), and immediately shouts,"Where's my Gramma?"... Read more
