It's been a busy week. Our daughter and grandson came down from Virginia for five days. I had not seen our grandson since his first birthday a month ago. He is walking all over the place!! What fun!
Our granddaughter had her fifth birthday party Saturday - for the family. Another with classmates will be this coming Saturday. Just after her party this past Saturday, her parents left for three days in Las Vegas. She and her soon to be three-year old brother stayed here with us until last night. It was both a blessing and a 'headache' having all three grandkids here together. In spite of my aching back and lack of sleep, I wouldn't trade the time for anything. I adore being a Grandma! Oh!...and last Friday, we took the grandchildren to have their pictures made all together - I even got in a few of the settings with them. Hmmm, not sure that was a good idea. Sunday, we took the three of them to see one of their great-grandmothers...an hour's drive away. It has been a packed week!
Daughter and her husband returned with a box of ETHEL'S Chocolates. She brought a box of Ethel's from another trip to Las Vegas and if this collection is as tasty as the the first box, I'm in for a treat!
They also brought a beautiful little optic glass Aphrodite Vase from the Wynn Hotel where they stayed. These little treasures are cut from thick sheets of glass. A recess for the flower is then drilled out, the edges beveled and the vase is polished to an icy smoothness.
Tonight I have some time just to myself. Husband and our son-in-law are taking in the opening Hurricane's game of the season. As much as I would love to be there, it's good to have a couple hours alone.
