Papa and Mema's grandchildren

Mema and Papa were always so happy and proud when they had a house full of their grandchildren.  Their are only seven of us.  We all have such fond memories of Papa and Mema and the times we spend with them.  It's strange spending almost 33 years every Christmas spending it with them, and now that they are gone, it's like we start our new traditions.   I hope I'm around a long time to spend with my family.

What a beautiful bunch you make - like a bunch of flowers.  I love to see pics of your family and hear about your family experiences.  I pray you are around for a very long time.  God willing you will be.  Hugs...gloria  Thank you so much for sharing your little world with us.  And what a beautiful world it is...

They were so very proud of us. We were also proud of them. I don't remember feeling more safe than when we were in their house. It's Papa's birth month, which always makes me think of him more. We were so very blessed to have such wonderful grandparents. We still are blessed to have such a wonderful family. I love you, honey!!!
