Christmas Is For Children

Hello, Dear Ones!
The real reason we went to New York was to see our grandbabies!

 Little Camp and Carter.
 Camp had grown so much and was making eye contact with us.
 Then this little precious!
Forgive me as I have to be a bragging grandma! :)
 My lovely daughter took us out for apple cider doughnuts!
Oh, my Lord! Yummy!
 We took an entire suit case filled with presents for the grandbabies to have an early Christmas with them.
 Carter was so cute and she 'helped' Camp open his presents too.
 Girls gotta be girls.
This is Carter opening the little doll and carrier I made for her.
If you'd like to see it you can click here.
 I made her the little purse that looks like a house and she turned it into her diaper bag.
It blessed my heart as she just loved the little homemade toys!
 Little Camp was sleeping through most of the package opening.
 Now he's ready to be Santa!
See the little red place on his little forehead? It's called a stork bite and hopefully it will fade as he gets older and if it doesn't it can be lazer removed. Praying it will fade.
 Mr Precious and son in law with their "I want more coffee faces"!
 Even in New York my kids fly the UT flag proudly!
Look at the snow!
 
 There was snow on the ground while we were there but after we left it really snowed!
We were so fortunate to get home. The pilot told us our plane was the last flight out of the day ! all of the others were canceled. They deiced our plane and sprayed some green stuff on it and we were off. It was really a scary flight! Thank You Lord for keeping us safe.
 And to all a good night! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Christmas Is For Children

Just for children
Grown up's save
Santa's found the chimney
That's for children
Like the reindeer
And the sleigh

That same tale is told
Every Christmas Eve again
We may think we're old
But our hearts can almost believe again

Christmas - is for children
But aren't we all children
Christmas day-ay-ay

That electric train
That no one could tempt papa with
Will someone explai-ain
Why it's all that papa will bother with

I guess Christmas - is for children
But aren't we all children
Christmas day..

  13. Sheila, do you have trouble flying??? I REALLY do. I hadn't flown in over 30 years because of my fear but 4 years ago got invited to a girls 4 days in Fl. and decided I was tired of missing the fun. SO, I got some drugs and went!!! It is still hard for me, even with the drugs but I go. Your little grands are so, so adorable!!!! Carter is growing so fast and she looks like YOU! Camp is a precious angel and I will pray the "stork bite" fades too. What a sweetheart!!! I am praying that this time next year I may be a Grandmom too. XO, Pinky

  16. How great you got to visit with your family. The pictures are all precious. Champ and Carter are so sweet. I'm glad you're home safe. We've gotten a lot of snow up here and I know our storms have gone out to the East coast.

  17. They are so precious, Shelia. I'm glad y'all got to go out there and see your babies. Not often we see that much snow either.

  20. Oh, I loved seeing your with your beautiful grandchildren. They are so precious and I loved seeing all of the photos. You look so happy - and gorgeous, my dear friend. Four of our grandchildren are coming to spend tomorrow evening with us while their mommy and daddy go to a nearby Christmas dinner party. We are the real winners! This is the first time we've all four of our son's children on our own. Our littlest angel is just a bit over a year old - last year she attended the dinner party with her mommy and daddy. This year we get to enjoy her all to ourselves! Aren't we blessed?

  25. Shelia- Those children are just darling. How very precious she is and you can see her personality now. Your little guy is just so sweet and his stork bite will most likely fade in time. If not- laser treatments work wonders. There is nothing that is more of a blessing than a healthy baby, is there?

    I wish they lived closer to you -I know how hard it is to live far away from family- xo Diana

  28. So happy for you to get to spend time with your precious little grands! They are both adorable! Carter looks like she is having so much fun, she is so cute! Camps sweet little face just needs lots of sugar, but I am sure that you gave him plenty while you were there. Glad that you are safely home now! That plane ride sounded a bit scary.

  36. Gorgeous grandbabies, Shelia! It looks like you had a great time visiting. Glad you got home okay, too, what with all the wacky snow storms moving across the country. My daughter had a small stork bite on one of her eyelids when she was born and it did fade over time.
