How did you celebrate your Covid-19 Mother’s Day? Here in Pennsylvania we are still locked down, but my daughter, Heather, figured if she brought the girls over and let them run in the backyard it would be safe. It was really hard to see them but not touch them.
The girls made me some flowers and Heather, Sarah and Cade bought me a new laptop.
Now was the sad time because they had to leave. It was really hard not being able to hug them all good bye.
Jared showed up right after they left, so he still hasn’t been able to see his sister and her girls. Hopefully, Heather wants the weather to be nice on Saturday so she can see her brother before he goes back to Alaska.
Jared brought me the cutest birdhouse for Mother’s Day. I didn’t expect anything from him because he was doing all the work upstairs to make our master bedroom and library. He was supposed to level the floor but when he got here and looked there was a lot more he had to do first. Now the bathroom is plumbed and the whole thing is wired. He has now leveled the floor and laying the sub floor the next few days. I am so lucky to have such a great carpenter for a son.
We ordered in so I wouldn’t have to cook. That was the best present I could do.
I hope you had a wonderful Covid-19 Mother’s Day. Let me know if you did anything fun.
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!
David and I always have enjoyed going to the movies. Now with Covid-19 the movie theaters are closed we have started streaming. Amazon Prime Video is letting you rent or buy theater movies. We were excited about this.
After I rented several movies which you have a month before you start to watch them. Once you have started watching them you have 48 hours to watch all of it.
Every night David and I take turns picking a movie. I picked Downton Abbey. I was not sure if David would like it but he was very impressed. I have enjoyed the TV series.
Downton Abbey is the story of the Crawleys and their staff as they prepared for the royal visit from the King and Queen.
It was superb in every respect. Writing was excellent with great lines from different characters. The costuming and sets were great. You should check out all the hats. The cinematography was excellent. We enjoyed the story and highly recommend this movie.
I was looking at this calendar that my daughter had given me for Christmas this year. It was the year of the twins. It started out in January with a very pregnant daughter and in February the birth. Now 17 months later I can’t believe how they have grown. From being under 3 pounds at birth to over 20 pounds now.
Of course, we think they are the most adorable babies ever. Well I guess we have to call them toddlers now. They are such good little ones. I don’t remember my children being this good when they were little. Can’t say it was because they didn’t have anyone to play with because there was 5 of them. It could be that I am just older and more mellow.
Anyway thanks for taking time to look at our granddaughter’s, Beka and Kate.
In June of every year we have a Renaissance Fair here in Anchorage. We enjoy going and spending time with the family there. It is a cheap day out with the tickets $8 for adults and $5 for children which can be bought at the gate or online. It is also educational for adults and children.
David and I did hang out with the pirates a lot due to the fact that they were in the beer garden, besides being fun. There is a lot of singing and storytelling which leads to tons of laughter.
You will receive tokens that you use to vote on which of the Barons you prefer Red, Blue or Green. There are many different shows that you can watch from sword fighting to ….
How about learning about knights? This is very interesting.
Then there is always the throwing of tomatoes at the actors which is always fun. Well maybe not for the actors. To think they wait all year for these 2 weeks to get tomatoes thrown at them. It is a good laugh.
All these people work very hard to make these two weekends fun for everyone while learning something.
We also ran into a friend of ours playing her harp for tuppence.
Even our twin granddaughters had fun!
Now on the other hand our niece and great nephew seemed to have gotten into a little trouble.
After some bargaining we managed to get them released.
At the end of the day it is time to watch the parade of the 3 Barons.
If you would like to learn more about the fair check it out here:
I had the most wonderful Christmas this year. Four of my five children were here for Christmas and 8 of my 12 grandchildren were home. Then Heather also had her in laws and her brother in law at her house.
We had a gathering at our house on Christmas eve. We opened a few presents then with my grandson, Rickie, because he was working on Christmas day. The rest of us got to open one package which was new pj’s that Grandma got for everyone.
Are you going crazy trying to get ready for Christmas? I know I am. This will be the first year since the kids all left home that we are all going to be together, well except for the oldest. That makes 4 children, 2 son in laws, 1 daughter in law, 2 grandsons, 6 granddaughters, my oldest daughter’s in laws and her brother in law and my oldest grandson’s girlfriend. I believe that comes to 19. What a wonderful Christmas we will have, but getting ready is the hard part. Continue reading “Christmas Craziness!”
I have been babysitting my twin granddaughters, Becca and Kate, for the last few days. I love getting to do this. They are 9 months old now. They are totally different. I love watching as they get their own personalities. It is so wonderful to see the ways they are to be able to watch as they learn new things. To see the little smiles on their faces just melts my heart, so yes I am going to show you more photos that I took of them.
