We soaked up the time with Nana and Papa who came to stay with us for a week before Christmas. There was a lot of kissing, cuddling, book reading, park and beach walking and girl shopping. We cooked yummy pots of food around the kitchen and poured many French presses of coffee. With kids, the very best thing is time spent together and it warmed our hearts to see how they responded when Nana and Papa embraced their worlds. These years go quickly and it was fun to see my father in law grin at Theo-isms around the table and Nana (the educator) exult over the great learning the kids are doing. Here are a few favorites from our time together.
