Cookies and Grandkids

Christmas when celebrated with family makes the holiday a very special time. 

For the first time in a couple of years, we spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day visiting with grandkids Bobby and Ellie, their mom, Shannon and other family members in RI and CT.

This photo of Grenville, the grandkids and their mom includes Sparkle, a recent addition to their neighbor's home. As you can tell, Ellie is quite taken with "Sparky."

The afternoon of Christmas Eve it was time for gingerbread cookie baking with Grandpa Grenville and his helpers Bobby and Ellie.

Then it was time to decorate with their mom's help.

Christmas Eve is traditionally celebrated with an open house at a family member's home in New London, CT. It was a large group including the grandkids and their young cousins.

Christmas Day and chef Grenville prepared pancakes and bacon — a breakfast tradition.

By late morning, it was time for gift opening . . .






Tired out from all the gift giving and opening excitement, it was afternoon nap time — for the adults.

Christmas was a very Special family time. 


We hope that Everyone enjoyed a special holiday time — it's gone so fast.

I see that Grenville caught the ugly Christmas sweater craze.

I am shocked that you can hold the gifts until after breakfast. It's tantamount to child abuse, y'know. :)

Looks like you had a special Christmas. The grands are adorable. I have been gone for awhile. Did you sell your other home? I read that you were in an apartment. Are you now closer to your children? Happy New Year.

I thought we were supposed to leave food out for Santa. Now that I know he will come make pancakes, I want to get on his list!

I am envious of all the family activities. I am sure a nap is needed after all of the different things going on with young and old. I am glad you were able to spend Christmas with the families. Happy New Year.
