6 wonderful days with this part of my family did me a world of good! Just look at that face! Who wouldn't smile everytime they saw it! Paxton is 15 months old and a joy to be around! My goal while there was to coax him gently to say Nana...it was a fun process! I am reminded just how wonderful taking a break and time for family is for the ole creative brain and heart!!
There's never enough photos of Nana and Paxton to suit me...Just look at that little face!!!
I think I spent more time down on the floor with him; face to face than standing!
I always try to get together with my co-grandma, Diana when I'm there...we both love this boy!!
Yep, we tried the generation photo thing, but this little man was hearing nothing of the sort...since he started walking...well, that's all he wants to do!
The whole trip was fabulous, right down to the night I left where we waited an hour and a half only to hear our flight had been cancelled!! It was a crazy bit of time where over 100 people were standing in line waiting to see what else was available...My poor girl came back to get me and we tried again the next day...I was LUCKY enough to get out the next morning...as some were delayed for days!
So I rushed home to finish a little personal bit of love for my brother who served in the air force...to me he is a hero of epic proportions...both in his years of service to the country and now as he serves his family so beautifully...Saturday is his birthday and so I painted him a medal of honor all his own...shhhh don't tell the air force! :) I got home, prepared this for mailing and "Gathering" as I promised, rushed them to the post office and then came home and fell completely asleep!!! It was awesome!!
Oh, and what happened with my goal of getting Paxton to say "Nana"? Well, he didn't say it while I was there...not very clearly anyway...HOWEVER, I recieved this e-mail from my daughter while I was waiting at the airport...and this is what she shared! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND MY DAUGHTER!! tee hee!!
