I love telling my grandchildren stories of my past – and while they are young, they want to know. Unfortunately as they reach teenagehood they are less interested in what you did as a child. Of course the children’s stories are much more fun if you can point to a photo or two – especially if you have pictures of yourself, your family, siblings, cousins etc when you were all younger.
It is fun to look at old photos – becomes the basis of my children bedtime stories – telling how it was and comparing to how it is now. Do you share your stories with your children and grandchildren? They are fascinated by the fact that we were once young too…

It has been a gorgeous weekend and the world is celebrating the Xmas week – or another night of Hanukah -or whatever your celebration. We had a houseful of children and young mommies this last week, lots of songs and presents, playing and running around – two sets of twins, two 2 year olds, and three 4 year olds – what a wonderful active day! And of course there were multiple grandmas as well as young mommies! The kids were all over the place, some playing with our new bunny rabbit ( of course his name is Bugs) others feeding the many goats, or picking up the tiny quail and holding their furry soft bodies carefully, or running through the chicken pen. And then of course don’t forget feeding the tilapia and koi! The best part was singing songs, playing the piano, dancing – grandma music and kid stories as the children call it – total abandon among the little ones – with the microphone – each child had a turn to say or announce – so much fun! It was a very busy day – and Sunny the Rottweiler had such fun running around with all the children, that he was exhausted – and slept for hours after they left. Which is a good thing since Rottweilers need LOTS of exercise. Joyful wonderful times – how blessed we are! Sending good wishes to you all….
