Baking with Grandma

Saturday was a special day.
 For the last 11 years, we have celebrated Christmas without Brian's parents,
since they lived so far away.
 But, this year they moved right here ,2 miles from us, so,
with joy
we loaded up the little ones 
and went to Grandma's house to bake cookies for Christmas. 
 Grandma was very organized,
which really helped the day to go well with the little helpers.
 We had a wonderful time.  
So glad to have grandparents close!

Now, we don't generally eat much in the way of cookies and sugary stuff anymore, 
but, this is Christmas, and part of the festivities 
includes baking with Grandma 
and eating all kinds of goodies mama doesn't usually allow!
It sure was a great time.  
One I hope we can follow up year after year, 
fashioning memories for our children to last a lifetime.
 Memories of multi -generations living and loving together.
