Happy Days

Well Hello
Sorry to leave it so long to get back. Life has been happy- busy with the delight of laughter of little children in our house. Yes the grandchildren arrived from Australia our robust little 4 year old grand-son with all the excitement of new things such as snow falling on the night he arrived and making cup-cakes and gingerbread people with grandma. Seeing our grand-daughter all pink ribbons and curls looking truly like a real life cherub, for the first time.
While they were here the icing on the cake was our son getting married the day was just perfect, they both looked amazing, its days like this that you never want to end and will always put a smile on our faces. But alas the grand-children have now gone back home and I cant help but think if there had been more time I could have done this or that with them, while I wipe little finger-prints from no higher than 3 ½ ft. The same day the happy couple flew out on their honeymoon, being a parent means letting go of your children to let them lead their own lives and to live their own dreams. We distracted ourselves by walking around our small-holding planning all the good things we are about to do this year. I can’t wait to get started.
