Crazy Life

It has been a long time since I posted.  I guess it all started when I decided to make everyone’s gift.  I should have started a lot earlier.  I have learned from this Christmas.

Anyway David and the girls got all the leaves up during the fall.

The girls even got Dad in the leaves.  Kate thought it was fun to sit in front of the leaf blower.

Thanksgiving 2020

Even with Covid-19  causing many to think this year is the worst ever we found things to be thankful for.  In fact, we found a lot; no one in our family have contracted Covid-19, we have a loving and caring family, we are very lucky to have 12 beautiful grandchildren, we have portal to stay connected to our family which seems to make them seem closer and many more.

David and I are lucky that we do have some family here.  That means that we went to Heather and Dan’s for dinner.  Heather and I split the cooking which made it easier on both of us.  I did cheap on desserts by buying the pumpkin pie from a local bakery and the Lemon bundt cake from Maria to support her school.  They were both delicious and I didn’t have to cook them which was nice.

When we got to their house Heather and the girls already had the table set.

Flinchbaugh’s Orchard & Farm Market

Once again we head to a farm that we have been wanting to check out.  A lot of people told us about all the things that go on here; like summer programs, corn maze, straw maze and more.  We were a little late for the season but we still had a great time.  The girls had a wonderful time playing.

I figured to start the day we should do a family photo of Heather, Dan and girls.  Check this out MeMe and PopPop!

Butcher’s Family Fun Farm

Heather and I had been wanting to go to a corn maze since we have moved here.  We finally got to one at the end of the season.

We found the coolest swings made out of tires which the girls really enjoyed.

Our Last Day at Disney World

Our last day was spent at Epcot.  We arrived there and made it through the entrance one last time.

Of course, the first thing you see is the big circular structure.

I thought we needed a photo of the kids here.

The Covid-19 look with masks on.

Universal Studios

Heather had planned our trip so well but this was something she didn’t plan.  She didn’t know that her big brother, Jared, had connections to Universal Studios.  She had always wanted to go to see Harry Potter land.  Jared has an older gentleman that lives with him who is the father of his best friend, Justin.  Justin’s Mom, Karen, is a witch at the Squeaky Cauldron and she got us free tickets.  Justin is also one of my adopted sons, so I really wanted to meet Karen.

We were supposed to just hang out at the hotel by the pool for the day while Dan went to car museum he had been wanting to visit.  He dropped the rest of us off at Universal Studios where we met up with Karen.

Karen didn’t get to stay with us long because she had things to do and has a hard time wearing the mask.  To say the least she hasn’t been able to work because of this.  It was really nice to get to spend a little time with her.  Her family think so highly of my oldest son, Jared, which makes me very proud.

Creekside Farm

Well I have been so busy lately I haven’t taken the time to sit down and write, so I am a little time behind.

We took the girls to a tractor show at Creekside Farm.  It was time to play in the sunflower fields.  The farm is really cool and I am sure we will be back different times of the year for the different seasons.  I see that pumpkin season starts on September 4th.

This is their web page if you want more information:

Hanging with the Granddaughters

Sorry I have been gone for a while but I am still recovering from my thumb surgery.  I have finally got my cast off and have been wearing a splint.  I go to therapy twice a week but I should be all done by the end of this month.  It is getting a lot better.

Anyway we have been spending a lot of time with the granddaughters.  They love to play in our backyard which has turned into Oma’s Little Tyke Playground.  They love their pool too.  They really like it when Oma makes bubbles in the pool.

Another Beautiful Day in the Backyard

Maria came over to help me with the girls today again.  They love having her over.  Kate says she is her best friend.

They played in the playhouse.

Bekka needed to sweep the floor in the playhouse even if it was grass.  The broom got stuck.  I really need to get this girl a little broom.  She is a real cleaner.

I guess they forgot what a door was because they used the windows to get in.  Thank you Maria for teaching them this.  lol

Yellow Stage

Our county of York, PA has gone into Yellow stage, which means we can spend some quality time with our twin granddaughters, Bekka and Kate. They came over to spend the day with Oma and Grandpa.

Bekka got right to work sweeping the deck.

Kate on the other hand was excited about seeing her horse again.
