Grandchildren



Grandchildren are such wonderful blessings! Abigail and Ian are my beautiful granddaughter and handsome grandson. My daughter, Kari and her husband, Craig brought their family from Wisconsin to our house in Michigan for an Easter week-end visit. On their way here, they picked up youngest son, JJ, who lives in Kalamazoo. We all enjoyed a delicious Easter dinner at son and daughter-in-law, Mike and Simone's house. Simone's niece, husband, baby and nephew, all from Germany were able to share dinner with us, also. Temperatures were colder here yesterday than on Christmas Day, but having your family with you warms up everything.

Some eggs were dyed on Saturday, admired on Sunday and eaten on Monday. We played games of Monopoly, Skip-Bo, Chinese Checkers, Balderdash and Apples & Apples, to name a few. Those kids have more energy than Grandpa and I combined on a good day. They are growing up so quickly, too. Abby is almost 12 and Ian is 10 already. It seems like just yesterday that they were babies.
