Over the river...

And through the woods--Today we all drove down to Grandmommie & Poppie's for the first time since last Christmas! Bill's parents live about 60 miles away from us, and since January, Annie hasn't been able to do long car rides because of her seizures. So today we decided to take the plunge and drive down to celebrate their 64th anniversary, as well as both of their October birthdays. It felt so good just to sit and catch up with everyone around their kitchen table, and seeing Annie curled up in Grandmommie's arms while they rocked together made the day complete.


What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies. ~Rudolph Giuliani
