It's Always Fun When Grandma Comes

My mom flew home on Thursday morning. A visit from Grandma always breaks up the monotony of life for a week. She showed up with a suitcase full of gifts for the boys. Took me to get a pedicure. Babysat several times so Spence and I could get our of our crazy house. Of course made a trek to the awesomest playground ever. Participated in our crazy St. Patrick's Day shenanigans. Took us to the zoo. Took us out to dinner. Took lots of pictures. Made dinner. Did the dishes. You name it. We love visits from grandma.












But what I really want to write about is her new blog. How cool is that? How many of your mom's have blogs? Not many. My mom is the greatest.

Thanks for the fun week!

I love the pictures!! Visits from Grandma are always great! My mom kept Leah over night on Thursday- they do things that I don't! She loves it- meaning Grandma and Leah!! She says that Grandma is more fun than mommy! Oddly that doesn't make me sad!! You know kids! I commented on your mom's blog- hope she doesn't mind- but it is really great and I am so proud of her to start one- I don't know what I'd do without mine now! Sorry about the heat- I will send you some Rita's to cool you off! You would love it!! I am sure you have some good places there to get some cold goodies- I can't wait for it to be hot here!!

Okay, Gray is a ROLLIE POLLIE!! I love it! I am glad your mom started a blog, I am sure it will be entertaining...by the way, she looks great!

I was thinking of you last night. Do you ever watch Jon and Kate plus 8?? on TLC? Anyhow, I love Kates haircut on it, and I was thinking "the only person I know that could pull that off is Katie"..its super cute! Plus I made your cupcakes and manicotti for the elders last night! BIG HIT!

Grandmas are the greatest. I'm SO glad your Mom got to come! She's so beautiful. Love your pictures. I had to link to your Mom's blog right away, before I even commented here. I too have tried with my Mom-no luck. I am passing your Mom's link along. We are attempting a family blog to help stay in touch...not off to a great start. What a FUN visit!!!
