1. What better way to share our visit with Rick's mom & stepdad better known as gramma & grandpa Joe. They arrived 5 days before Christmas & stayed for a week. We had so much fun & already miss them & look forward to our next visit.
2. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather. Being from Connecticut the weather was a little different than they were used to at Christmas time so we took advantage & spent lots of time outside. Sitting with gramma & Holly.3. Playing on the swingset.4. This visit Johnnie spent lots of time enjoying his grandparents.5. And they also enjoyed meeting their newest granddaughter. And getting lots of cuddle time.6. Lucky for us they celebrated Christmas with us. And they helped make the holiday so special for the kids. 7. Holly felt a little under the weather & gramma with her special touch was able to soothe her to sleep sitting on her lap.8. Johnnie was really excited to show gramma his newly acquired writing skills.9. The last morning of our visit took us to Manhattan Beach to enjoy one last breakfast before gramma & grandpa Joe had to catch their plane back to the cold. I kept trying to get a photo of Rick & his mom alone but Johnnie really wanted to be in the photo & I'm so glad because I love how happy he looks here.10. And the final photo taken on their visit was Johnnie sandwiched between them which is exactly where he wanted to be. Miss you both already!
