My mother-in-law flew back to England yesterday. And I finally managed to get a picture of her with her (for now) only grandchild, just a few hours before she left.
Nothing like waiting until the last minute, but at least it’s a really cute picture.
Overall it was a lot of fun. Except for the whole “coming down with the Plague” part of her visit, and then her catching the Plague from me (um, sorry?), it was lovely. Catie completely ignored Dave and me in the mornings and went straight into Grandma’s room to snuggle. Most mornings when I got up, I’d find the two of them already downstairs, curled up on the couch and watching Scooby-Doo. Kind of nice to have a little early morning reprieve.
So now it’s back to being just the three of us. For the next week. Then my family all descends on our house for Christmas. I have to admit, I’m really excited. I love the holidays.
Helpful Gramma visits are the best!
And Dave looks so much like his Mom! Love it!
So glad you are enjoying the happy.
There’s something about the eyes that’s similar between him & his mom, but honestly? When I met his dad, I was totally freaked out by how much they look alike. Check it out:
I love the holidays too! I’m sure Catie is so excited about all the family coming next week, as are you!
AmazingGreis´s last blog post ..Love at first sight…
The holidays make me really really miss my grandma. We would go shopping together, cook together, everything. Seeing Catie with her grandma makes me miss mine a ton. Catie is SO lucky to have such wonderful grandparents who adore her (and that she adores back!) I remember watch Fraggle Rock with my gram while eating eggs. (With cheese, my favorite), she also would sing me to sleep at night. So much fun!
Oh and I wanted to mention I love the fact her unicorn got to go see Toy Story 3 too!
