    I had 6 weeks of no quilting to enjoy the visits of kids and grandkids! What a joy to have them here! It's been surprisingly hard to get back to quilting, but I wouldn't trade the time with those beautiful little people. Aren't they the greatest invention!

    And I bet that six weeks went by too quickly.
    Yes, they are the greatest invention. I have only one so far and he is a complete joy. (He turned two on New Year's Day)

    I have a feeling you're going to be lost without them now that they're gone. Although it can get busy with all those little ones running around, the house feels and sounds so empty when they're gone. The hum of a sewing machine will help, but you'll also be looking forward to the next time they come. :thumbup:

    My 5 grandkids all make me laugh. Oldest just turned 16, and I suspect this will be the last summer she spends with me. After this year it will be part time jobs and school.

    Youngest just turned 4. All are delightful people who I love very much!

    Am going to have my granddaughter help make her own quilt this summer. She is, shall we say, less than excited. So I told her she didn't have to help, but say so now. She conceded that she would help after all. I look forward to it.

    Only have one grandson (10 months old - my avatar) and he is the light of my life! I was so busy being a mom to his dad that I didn't get to enjoy every moment like I can with my Boogie Bear! (He loves to stand and wiggle his bottom!)

    Anytime I can be with him, I will stop doing everything else just to enjoy him.

    I have four grandchildren. Delene is 12, Gavin is 9, Joslyn is 2, and Lilly will be 1 in February. We watched Josi (Joslyn) last evening. Little kids are adorable! So much fun. They liven up our hearts and home. So much fun! Josi gets to cook with grandpa when she is here. She never forgets a thing. She gets excited when coming to our house because she knows we will do something special with her. She gets our full attention and she loves it. When she comes in now she goes to grandpa and then to me, running and jumping upon our laps and gives us kisses. She keeps this up for about ten times! She is so excited to see us! By the way, I also have a little granddaughter due in April and we also found out that we have a new baby due in September. We are blessed beyond measure!

    What blessings the grandkids bring to our lives! My husband and I just spent a week and a half with one of our daughters and her family ... miss them so much already. Two year old grandson and three month old granddaughter just put sparkle in every day! Now on to see the other grandsons in a few months. Life is good!

    spoil them and then send them to dad and mom..

    I agree! Grandkids are wonderful. When mine come over, it's like a whirlwind has hit my house but I love every minute!
