Mother’s Day was another beautiful sunny day this year…so we enjoyed having appetizers and drinks outside in the backyard.
I could not have planned it better, my son and his family came early and spent some quality time with us…see my son’s family spends most of the day with my daughter-in-law’s mother. It was grand to see my children and Liz’s daughter celebrate Mother’s Day together. For when our kids are together I cannot help but reminisce about the good old days, the days when they were just little tykes. My son, Damian is only 9 months older than Vera, Liz’s daughter, so to say they are like sister and brother is truly an understatement.
Hello Natalie and Ms. Sophie…our first born grandchildren. I still cannot believe that I am looking at Vera and Damian’s children. Oh, how these two little people changed our lives. The moment they were born, life became simpler…see our grandchildren opened our eyes to the importance of not wasting time. You know the time that is wasted when you have your own children…but now with grand children…we get to inhale every moment with them.Now meet Liam, Liz’s second grandchild. This little addition to her family was very important. For Liam is the first male to be born to Liz’s family…although he doesn’t carry Liz’s family name, he sure does hold the title of King Liam…My second addition to the grandchildren list…Mr. Christian! Christian is a smiley little boy, who always gives us a run for our money…but appears tamed when he is eating his favorite snacks…but I still don’t trust him…I know he is thinking of something wicked to do, it is all a matter of time and endurance with him.Yes, Mother’s Day 2012 was a joyous time…great grandmas, grandmas, mothers, sisters, daughters, son, and friends…we laughed, we ate, we lapped up each others company. When the day comes to a close it is always hard to say goodnight to each other, but we all know that we will be seeing each other again at the next family function, whenever or wherever that may be.
