And... we had some friends arrive from the states for a bit of touring this summer. Grandma and Grandpa mailed them a few things to bring over to us and I got such a kick out of the notes that Grandma wrote to each of the grandkids. Then on the one small bag of goodies for Matt and I, was written very clearly "Only bring this if there is enough room." Clearly, the priority is that the grandkids each get their 3 big bags of treats and clothes and toys before Mom and Dad get their one bag of candy to share. I LOVE THIS. It's exactly the way we miss being loved- seeing our kids be lavishly loved and getting to enjoy loving them with others. But, I'll admit, I'm glad there was room for the candy too.
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa! We love you!
