Grandma's ramblings . . . . .

Dearer than our children are the children of our children
-                     Egyptian Proverb

My husband and I were fortunate enough to have two children, a daughter and a son.  I am now most fortunate to have a granddaughter whom I love with all I am.  She is a light of my life.  Adison is two and a half years old now.  She just loves YoGabbaGabba and we’re going to see them at the Times Union Center on September 2.  She will just about go crazy when she sees all her YoGabbaGabba friends on stage.  I can’t wait to see the expressions on her little face when they appear.
Sunday School begins again on September 12th at our church.  I asked Adison if she wanted to have a sleepover at Grandma’s in a couple of weeks and then go to church and she said, “Yes”.  “I’ll go to Adison’s church?  Grandma’s church too.  Mommy’s church too.”  She has come to church with me before but this will be her first Sunday School visit  and I am looking forward to that.  I hope she will like it.
I’m looking forward to doing so many things with my little angel.  Apple picking, our trip to Liberty Ridge with the church folks, Halloween party at church, trick-or-treating in her Foofa costume, and so much more.  Children love Halloween, especially the candy, but also because of all the spooky fun.    
I think we’ll make some pipe cleaner spiders for Halloween.  You need black pipe cleaners and string.  Twist pipe cleaners together to form round bodies with eight legs each.  Attach string and hang from door frame about top of head height.   Scatter little ones throughout the house.  A fun, inexpensive time together that will bring her many days of laughter and fun scaring her Mommy and Daddy with her spiders!   
More ramblings at another time.  Have a great day everyone.
