there's something about Harry & Charlie

grandma is at the door! I wonder if she bought me a Freddo Frog? (I didn't. because he is not allowed to have chocolate.. so I took him one of my Pisa Muffins (thanks Pam)..)

with all that happened last year within our family circle, it has really bought home to each of us, just how important family are.. so today I took myself off and went to visit my eldest daughter Louisa and my two Grandsons Harry & Charlie..

yes, I know these aren't my toys.. but I have heard they are fun to play with..

I promise I didn't do it... I didn't lick all the cake mix from this bowl.. it is clean and out of the cupboard...

these are so much more fun than the building blocks..

I am practicing for when I go to Grandma's place and I can lick the bowl there
do you remember ever licking the bowl when your grandma made a cake.. the mouth would water in anticipation.. and you would hold your breath, wishing with all your might that there would be some left for you...

the newest addition to the family.. not so little Charlie.. 4 mths old now! gurgles and smiles nearly all day, except when he is sleeping..

yes, grandchildren help heal pain & heartache - their smiles & cuddles.... they are the promise of the future that all will be well...

They are a moment of peace and grace to give us the courage to continue through the rough parts of life. And, so we are blessed.

How cute are Harry and Charlie! There is nothing better than being around kids to restore our sanity, our optimism, our connection to humanity! :)

Absolutely darling boys.
Yes licking the bowl and the spoon is the best. You are a good grandma!
