Grandparents come to the East Coast!

It started by Aneliese calling her Grandma Helen asking if she could come and visit that afternoon which resulted in a spur-of-the-moment grandparents visit a week and a half later!

Our time together was wonderful and busy. The girls loved every minute with their grandparents (they have never had them to themselves before.). It was fun to show someone our house and to share our plans and dreams. So who wants to come visit next?

Sidenote: Cecily calls Grampa Tom, Old Tom, because of this book Belinda by Pamela Allen. It is so funny now but I can only imagine what it will sound like to others!
