family weekend

October is a special month. Not only because it brings the promise of cooler weather, but because it’s birthday month for Prince Charming. And some special people were coming for the celebration! WooHoo!

Not until you are a grandparent do you understand what joy was in the air! Having the “grand trio” aka Prince Charming, Sweet Pea and Cool Dude, and their parents in the house was the best!

There were lots of friends who came to celebrate as well. Still can’t believe there were nine children under three!

After the party we made a trip to the pumpkin patch.

The next morning came too quick. Someone was a bit sad to be leaving…

as was his Nana and Papa. Parting is such sweet sorrow…

It was a wonderful weekend. I did not get my tinsel in a tangle and my heart is full!

  1. What fun. I can not stop smiling as I look at your photos. I didn’t realize that Prince Charming has his mother’s red hair. And, of course, Amber’s two are gorgeous beyond words. You are blessed, indeed. I’m so glad your mom gets to enjoy all the festivities, as well.


    1. yes what fun! Prince Charming has so many of his beautiful mama’s features and his daddy’s fun loving personality 🙂 I am so thankful for three beautiful healthy grandchildren. 🙂 thanks Bev!
