Amazing how grandchildren have a way of impacting us, isn't it?

Merry Christmas!


The grandchildren have certainly changed our lives for the better.
My husband put lights on a tree outside our window on communal property shared by the others in the 18 unit association. When my 4 year old granddaughter came over my husband said to her "isn't Grandpa's tree the MOST beautiful of all the trees here? My granddaughter looked at Grandpa and said, "Grandpa ALL the trees are beautiful!
Later on my husband remarked that he had been "put in his place by a four year old". Simply astonishing.
And a Merry Christmas to you too!
