Grandparent's Day Surprises...

I never remember when Grandparent's Day is, but Madison and Cade do--thanks to their thoughtful mothers. For the past several years, the children have surprised Ed and me with delightful and thoughtful gifts. This year was no exception.

Madison brought us a hand-decorated gift bag filled with all sorts of items.  Each item in the bag represented something. 

For instance, there was a clock to remind us that time passes quickly, so we should enjoy every minute (we've learned that lesson all too well), a candle to remind us that we are the light of our grandchildren's eyes, and some Starburst candy for an extra burst of energy when we wear out, but the grand kids don't!  So thoughtful!  We love our bag of goodies, and will put everything to good use!

Late in the day, Caden brought us a framed photo collage of himself, which said: Grandchildren-a reward for growing old. How true!

All of the photos on the collage were taken at Chuck E Cheese, so Cade was looking very happy in all them!  There were also two hand-made cards that represent Ed and me.  We got a good laugh out of those replica cards!

We are thankful for these thoughtful gifts, but most of all we are thankful for the privilege of being a part of the lives of these two precious little ones.  They don't call them "grands" for nothing!
