We were blessed with lots of family time this weekend.
Our niece Jill's baby shower, and our granddaughter Audrey's 8th Birthday party.
Always excited to have our oldest Son Brice and wife Jennifer here staying overnight at the house.
We get to spend quality time with the Twin Cities grand babies.
Lots of hugs, kisses and snuggles.
Audrey turned 8 last week so the family-party was Sunday.
It was a beautiful sunny and warm day, which was extra special since it always seems
to be cold and rainy during her B-day parties.
We were able to sit out on the deck and visit while we ate, and the kids were able to play outside.

Audrey, had such a nice party!
Here she hugs a letter "A" Emoji pillow from Uncle Gavin.
She loved her pink Flamingo slipper from Rick and I
Sunday morning Scarlett (our youngest Granddaughter) struts around wearing
my nightgown draped over her shoulders.
She wanted to be "Elsa" (from the movie Frozen)
It's the right color and the right length....perfect!
Out picking "flowers" for mommy & daddy
My son Brice snapped this photo of Uncle Gavin and Scarlett,
just hanging out in the back yard. I LOVE this photo!
Today we had our sweet Carson over for a playdate.
We love to play games and Play-doh
(Photo taken about a week ago on another play date)
Sometimes after the grandkids are here I leave the toys sitting out
for days to remind me of those precious ones.
I also leave hand prints on the windows left by the sweet little hands of
Audrey, Carson and Scarlett...
It feels wrong to wipe them away.
Can you tell, I just love being a Grandma, I can never get enough of those little blessings.
