B's First Birthday

It's fun getting back to creating layouts with papers and embellishments--especially when I have a cute subject such as our grandgirl Beatrice.

She's every bit as cute and sweet and fun in real life ... and she's quite the little firecracker, not wanting to sit still too long or to cuddle, always off running to catch her sister Ella. Lately Beatrice has been saying more words (her favorite this past week has been "hat"), and always chimes in to be sure she's heard.

I love these grandparenting days! Yesterday DH and I got to have morning play together with the grandgirls, then take both GGs to their library story times and have lunch AND nap time with them. After nap time we read Mary Poppins and made some story characters who giggled with us and those characters floated straight to the ceiling for their tea time. We laughed and told jokes and they kept bobbing back to the ceiling as Uncle Albert and his friends always do in the story. I think Ella was going to take Uncle Bert to bed with her. (I failed to get his photo! Picture a pleasingly plump, bald, mustached jolly soul who loves to laugh and pop his vest buttons.)

Glad you stopped for a visit! I hope your day is merry and bright!
