This is Judy here. I don’t usually do this but since Jim is sleeping I’m going to post some pictures and comments from our time with our wonderful grand kids and of course our grown children too.
“Gamma” and “Gammpa” as our two year old grand daughter Violette called us, was such a joy to get to know. It took a few days for her to warm up to us as it had been 8 months since she last saw us, minus the Skype pictures.
The day we arrived, November 8, was her 2nd birthday. So glad we were there for her celebration.
She loves blueberries and purple!
She got these blocks for her birthday. She thought Gammpa would look good with the bag on.
Tea parties too.
Her favorite thing to do with Gamma was jumping on the beds. (Gamma just bounced on her knees)She started that activity when we first arrived in November and when we returned from Arizona in December she always reminded me of her falling off and getting a boo boo. So, I had to watch her a little closer this time. We spent lots of time at the park as the weather was really pleasant until closer to Christmas.
Sliding with Uncle Jordan
Peek a boo Gama
Our youngest Jordan arrived at Thanksgiving and stayed until the day after Christmas. It was good to see him and enjoy his cooking again. They had a lot of fun together too. If she didn’t see him in the morning or during the day she would ask the adult who was present “Where is Uncle Jordan?”
For Christmas she got a wooden train track with trains that have magnets to link them. She got a Thomas too. She could put them together and imagine with them. It was cute to watch her playing.
Lest I forget, the other reason we came to the states in November was to see our newest grandchild, Isaac River Depp, born Sept. 14. Jody was doing great with two but glad for the extra hands to help.
Babies are sooo kissable.
He looks a lot like big sis Violette. He’s a very happy baby, except the normal evening fussy time. Growing bigger every day. I had lots of time to cuddle, rock to sleep, and generally care for him. It gave Jody some time to do Christmas prep and shopping and have a few “dates” with Caleb.
Uncle Josh why are you wearing my birthday crown? You are so funny!!!
Such fond memories which will have to last us for another 14 months.
