Sentimental Saturday

25 Oct

“I find myself becoming increasingly nostalgic for the past, but after all I suppose that is the only thing one can be nostalgic about.”

― James Rozoff

The life of a long distance grandma is challenging. Thank goodness for technology and a wonderful caring family. I received a FaceTime call from my sweet daughter-in-law, asking if I was able to FaceTime with the girls. Princess Belle wanted to show Gamma her new outfit. She was Minnie Mouse today. The girls love to play dress up.

While I had them on camera, I asked if they’d like to open their Sunday Surprise package from Gamma today. I had this cool idea that if I sent a box of little packages for the girls, labeled Week 1, Week 2, etc., enough to last a couple of months, then I could watch them open up their little gifts when they called on Sunday. They called today, so I asked if they could open their gifts today.

The girls were excited and immediately went to the table to use their new colored pencils, and Belle was enchanted with the pencil sharpener, needing to sharpen the already sharpened pencils, but just the colors that she liked. Black and brown did not need re-sharpening. Lovely sentimental things like this just warms my heart.

After we said our goodbyes, I was going through some of my old photos on my iPad. I have over 10,000. It takes a while. I lingered over the more nostalgic memories. I won’t share them all. You’re welcome.

Some of my favorites.

The Reynolds triplets a long time ago. I bade them this silly school bus cake for back to school which was also around their birthday. I miss these little faces.

A chilly cloudy day here in North Texas, but a warm nostalgic Saturday here at my house.

Happy Saturday, my friends.
