Backyard Granddaughters

Last weekend Heather wanted to see her brother, Jared, before he headed back home to Sterling, Alaska. We are still under lock down and social distancing. We know we can visit in our backyard with making sure to stay 6′ between us. It was hard to not touch the girls though.

Covid-19 and Easter

I know there are tons of grandparents that didn’t get to spend Easter with their grandchildren. I know some of you have done like my brother and sister in law who delivered things to their grandchildren as they watched from across the road as the children looked at all their goodies.

I took some things over to our granddaughters on Friday and left them on the porch.

This is how we got to do Easter this year with them via photos.

Girls are eating the chocolate sucker that Oma and Grandpa left for them.

We also got to use our Facebook Portal to visit with our grandchildren and children in Gig Harbor, Washington.

It was hard not spending Easter with our family but we all made the best of it. Covid-19 will not beat our family!

Let me know what you did for Easter.

Thanks for stopping by!

February Birthdays

David and I are leaving February 12th to go to Seattle to take care of 3 of our elementary age granddaughters, so we had a early birthday celebration in York on Friday. Dan’s birthday is on the 13th, Bekka and Kate’s is on the 16th and mine is on the 26th. My daughter, Sarah, in Gig Harbor had a birthday on the 1st. I have plenty of birthdays that is for sure.

Of course Oma had to make some birthday hats.

Sunday With My Girls

Heather told me she had gotten something new to try out on the girls, stamps. She asked me if I want to come up and play too. Of course, I said yes.

When I first came upstairs this is what I saw.

Why exactly do we buy toys for children when all they really want is a box.

Kate really got into the stamping.

Bekka got into stamping herself.

Bekka said stickers are more fun. They discovered them on our move to York. It kept them entertained while driving down the road.

Mommy enjoys her Sundays with Kate and Bekka. Of course, Oma does too.

Bekka said it must be Super Bowl time. I better bring Grandpa a football. She carried it all the way down the stairs to give it to him.

The girls love spending time with Grandpa.

David and I will really miss these moments when we get moved into our new house next month.

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful Twin Granddaughters

David and I enjoy watching our little girls, Bekka and Kate, growing up. The new things they do everyday just amazes us. We have many wonderful days with them.

The girls love hanging out on our stairs with Mom.

They really enjoy being outside and learning all about what you can do with a stick.

I hope you get a little joy out of these photos because they sure put a lot of joy in our life.

Making Christmas Cookies

It has been a crazy last couple weeks. Dan and David went back to Edmonton, Canada to retrieve the rest of our stuff. Jim flew into Edmonton to meet them and help load the trailer once again. They made it back in 9 days. They left in the snow and seemed to take it with them because we have not had any since then.

While the men were away the girls played. Bekka and Kate made their first Christmas cookies.
