A snowy day in the Mitten !
Dear Guillianna and Elijah …
The first snow around town arrived this morning ! Aunt Liz and Uncle Nick posted a photo of Bash seeing it, it was so cute !
We hope that you have good memories of playing in it too!
You were ready to go out in the snow in these photos …. and yes I know they are blurry … but it’s ok. Poppy and I will keep the originals safe if you should ever want them. This website has been around a very long time – and it has taken so many hours of effort to create it over nearly ten years, so updating it has been a process – and is taking some time, but we will always work on keeping it for the two of you to enjoy someday 😉 ! Every day I get photos from through the years popping up on my phone or computer- photos of all of the grandchildren as well as family and friends, events we have all shared. It is a nice way to start the day, it is so hard for us not having seen any “new” photos of the two of you, and therefore newer images will no longer pop up! It is all so truly hard to comprehend! We can only imagine how big you’ve both grown, since we have not seen any photos of you both since you left our house the end of December 2018. Almost eleven months ago ! Maybe that is why we enjoy reminiscing the fun and smiles we used to see every single day. We love our memories and hope you too will keep some warm memories too locked tight away while also making new ones. It is most important that you’ll get to share all kinds of new fun, new memories with mom and dad … good thing for two great kids who we want to have the best things in life no matter what, it doesn’t matter where they live or what happens on the journey – as you grow older your Nana and Poppy are holding your hearts inside or our hearts, and hope that somehow you are able to feel our love! To have the love and support of grandparents, is an awesome gift. To have all your aunts and uncles, cousins and great grandparents and some truly amazing friends you have made already in life, to support you through your life as well as your parents, it an amazing thing. That kind of love is something to be treasured and you both have it from the Mitten and all around you every single day. This is a tree of life, and it has roots that you can see. The roots hold the tree firmly in the ground and they bring all the nutrition to the rest of the tree so it can grow, be healthy, strong and thrive. For you two, all of the people who have loved you and cared for you, still do and love being part of your roots, and your tree of life!
We love you forever and always , to the moon and back ,
❤️Nana and Poppy ❤️🍪
