It has been so long since I have had such a little child in my house for Christmas! And what fun! I always knew I would love being a Grandmother and this child has just proven me right. If only my son were here to make this day complete. We had a great time. Georgia chased the dogs around on her new quad that my husband picked out for her as a Christmas gift. We had snacks, did "lipstick", and fed the guinea pigs (she used to call them mouse). I think I now understand the gift of children, more so then when I had my own. It was so thrilling to see the wonder in her eyes and remember when everything and every day was new. I hope 2009 is just as wonderful as 2008, as I truly could not have asked for a better year.

Watching my little girl get married was emotional and today I am exhausted! I now have a son in law and love him to death. It was the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to. The bride and groom wrote their own vows and did an amazing job. Their vows were touching and humorous. So we laughed, we cried, we laughed again, and then back to crying. I am sad that all the hoopla is over, however I am also glad it is over and all went well. Whew! Isn't my daughter the most beautiful bride ever?

I have been so busy, as my first born child is getting married on Saturday. I flew to MN this morning to help with the last minute details, offer love & support, and watch my daughter walk down the isle and marry the one who has stolen her heart. As she starts this new chapter of her life, I remember when I was young and had stars in my eyes. It seems like only yesterday that I held her in my arms, kissed boo boos and made them all better, and read stories to her of magical places. It seems like I blinked and a young woman appeared before my eyes. How does this happen? Soon she will have little ones to cradle in her arms and scare monsters away from underneath their beds. Soon she will again discover the magic of Christmas, through the eyes of her children. And one day, she too, will blink and be preparing for a wedding. And I'm not going to miss a minute of it!
