Youngest Grand Celebrates !

Right before Christmas, there's another major celebration in our family.
Happy 🎂Birthday, Lilliana

Granddaughter Lilliana celebrated her 3rd birthday this weekend. We did a pre-birthday visit during our Thanksgiving road trip. We will see her and her parents during the Christmas holidays. In November, we went with her and mom, Coleen, to the Hands-On House, Children's Museum of Lancaster for children aged 2-10. Here, adults and children, including parents and grandparents and others, learn and play together. It was fun.

Various areas, including — Corner Grocer, Little Valley Farm, Post Office, Marty's Machine Shop, Mostly Make Believe, The Clubhouse, Adventure Garden, Play Garden — feature learning and play activities. During our visit, activities were limited to indoor events.

Lilliana along with her mom and grandfather Grenville hung out together in The Clubhouse after listening to a story time read.
Playtime continued at Lilliana's home where she and Grandpa Grenville worked on several building projects.
Lilliana and family pet, Lola, watched videos together, then it was nap time for both. Grandpa and her mom also napped, while I watched a holiday🎄movie instead.
Lilliana and Lola shared gift opening time, although one was more a curious onlooker.
There was family photo time with mom and grandpa and both grandparents before our visit ended.
We're looking forward to seeing this part of our family again in late December.

Thanks to fellow bloggers for all your wonderful comments on the post for my holiday wreath contest entry. Results will be shared, win or lose.

Also, holiday time is busy for all and while I've been reading posts, I haven't had time to comment on all, but will do some catching up this pre-Christmas week.

it goes without saying I love LOLA... I remember when Liliana was born, and it doesn't seem like 3 years. I would love to play at that museum myself..

Happy Birthday to Liliana! We celebrated our grandson, Toby, yesterday...he's 2! How nice to enjoy time together at the Hands On House. I've never been there but have heard lots about it.

Little kids are fun because they are so surprising.

Thanks! Yes, that would have been a cute idea! They only had whip cream in their mugs because I was afraid they would spill the cocoa all over themselves and or blankets.

Happy birthday to little Liliana!
I remember from your previous posts, and can’t believe she is already 3 years old. The children’s museum sounds like a fun place.

My family life is non-existent compared to yours and I am so envious. Loved all the photographs and I thank you for sharing them with us.

Grandchildren are such fun. So glad you could spend time with the birthday girl. How time flies. It hardly seems three years ago when we first saw this little sweetie.
