Thanksgiving As Seen Through The

Eyes of My 8 Year Old Granddaughter

 

I think the following speaks for itself. What else can I say. So proud of my Rose. We just spent a delightful Thanksgiving Holiday with my youngest son, Scott, and his wonderful family on San Diego's  Campland On The Bay in Mission Bay. Definitely one of the best Staycations we've ever had. 

 

 

When I returned home and opened my computer to check my email I received this wonderful message from Rose. I think I'll have to hire her to ghost write, create, edit and place my posts from now on. She's always asking me what she can do to earn a few bucks. What a sweetheart. Janis and I are so blessed.

 

Hope everyone had a wonderful

Thanksgiving Day Weekend!!

Congrats to your granddaughter for a great job! She has a lot of talent and it sounds as if you all had a wonderful staycation.

I admit it is jarring to those of us on the East Coast - especially those of us who are cheering nighttime temps in the 20s and have a roaring fire in the fireplace these days - to see those summer like photos!  Beautiful!

That's something you will have to save for her and give back when she is grown.

Well, Susan Haughton This may come as a real bucket of ice cold water over your head but Janis and I got home from Campland just minutes before it started pouring like the rain Gods just unleashed their holy terror upon us.

Today we are stoking up the fire place and watching the last of the storm clouds pass by. Amazing how on Thanksgiving day it was 79 degrees and we were paddle boarding on the bay and today we are all bundled up sitting in front of the fireplace schleping off 40 degree weather. Oops! There I go bragging again. LOL!

I think anytime you cann see the world at holidays or just about anytime as an 8 year old sees it, is cause for celebration.

You are so right Joe Pryor I used to think I learned a lot from my kiddies. Now I'm even all the more amazed to see how much I'm learning from my grandkiddies.

No kidding!  How wonderful to be able to "bring" along the little ones... those with the shiny bright eyes when they look at you.  You will undoubtedly be seeing things differently through those creative and inquisitive young eyes.
