Yesterday was my day this week to be with my adorable grandson. I am so lucky that I am getting to spend time taking care of him and watching him grow. I want him to have all the wonderful memories I have of my two Grandmothers, both of whom were amazing women.

My girls are also so blessed to have had wonderful Grandparents. The photo above is of my Husband's beautiful Mother with her 6 grandchildren. They always had a wonderful time at Yia Yai's. In this photo they decorated her with ribbons and a paper cup for a hat. She always had art projects to do. If you ask my girls about her, they will tell you that every time they would walk into her house, she wanted to feed them. (she always had mac and cheese ready to heat up) Just like in the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding. She was Greek and her family was so much like the movie that Lou and I laugh every time we see that movie. There are aunts, uncles and cousins that could have been in that film.
Yia Yia's house was always filled with food and love.
She would have loved having great grandchildren.


  1. Thanks for the comment on my blog. You have a beautiful shop with some signs that tickled me! Glad to hear Lou had a quick recovery. I have a similar story re bp except I turned beet red at work, and passed out at my desk. Amazingly enough, there are people who recall seeing the ambulance coming to the door but not knowing me at the time! Annapolis is a small town, for sure.

  2. Oh how fortunate for yourself and your girls. I have no doubt you will be every bit as good as the other grandmothers in your family.

  3. Those little grands are precious, aren't they? Time spent with them is also precious. Hugs

  4. We just visited our first great grand baby. Just being in the house with that young couple and their precious baby brought back memories of my life. Things have changed in our world, but not the feelings that come with a new baby.
    Loved seeing the old picture with grandma all decorated up. Priceless!
