We took a few pictures outside in front of some of the lights.
It was so nice to have all 4 of the grands together. Tanek enjoyed getting re-accquainted with his cousins.
We also did our Christmas while they were here. I feel like I have already celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year we will get to celebrate Christmas twice. Opening gifts is always fun.
Such a sweet smile from Hannah. She is our bird loving, natural girl. Loves the garden and all things of nature. Just all smiles here because she got some bird books and a thingy that plays the sounds of different birds. She is our 2nd grand and is a joy. She loves riding horses and doing anything that has to do with nature. Papa would love to have her here all the time to help him in his garden. She loves it. And I might add, she has a very green thumb and can grow anything.
Here is our oldest grand. Kirsten is a very talented and smart girl. She can write a good story and draw the pictures to go with it. Her biggest love is horses and she can draw a beautiful horse head in the sand at the beach with her finger. Very talented. She and Hannah are learning to sew and doing very well at it. She is a pleasure to be around and we are so proud of the young lady she is growing up to be. She is the one that first made me a Nana and I am so thankful for that title.
Emily is our youngest grand-daughter and she is a very special little girl. There is NO telling what she might come up with. She is cute, and funny, and smart and precious. (spoken like a true Nana). The joy on her face as she opened her gifts was so heart warming. She likes a wide range of things. She loves to dance and sing and draw pictures. She is also very smart. (all my grand-children are extremely brilliant) She is very entertaining and loving..
Our youngest and only boy grand-child is also such a joy. He is just a happy little guy that likes everything. He is fun and has the a vivid imagination. He loved spending time with his cousins and Aunt and Uncle and just had a good week with them. He is into cars, and bulldozers and Handy Manny and just about anything else. He loves to sing and read and perform. He has a memory that is unbelieveable. I look at each of these sweet children and stand amazed and love watching to see what God is going to do with them. They all are so open to God and learning about Him and love hearing about Him. It was just wonderful having them all together and watching each of their personalities. Each is so unique and wonderful and such a blessing. It was a special "early" Christmas for us.
This was our final night together and they left early the next morning to go home. It was a wonderful week and holiday week spending time together. It went by way to fast but a lot of memories were made and lots of pictures were taken (by Heather) and will be coming in soon (hopefully). She is a very busy photographer and takes great pictures. This is a very busy time for her.
