Playing games with Bertie, he is such a joy.
Watching my sweet husband with Honey he is so gentle with her. Her wish is his command.
Watching and supporting Bertie doing his homework, he seems to have grown up overnight. He is sounding out words and reading. A real delight to see him growing up and wanting to learn.
Having a walk around Ampthill, looking at the beautiful window displays and buying a couple of extra gifts for the girls.
A real feast for the senses.
Finally the joy seeing Amie and Matt so excited on their return, thrilled to see their children and us but revitalised having had a break away. We feel blessed to have been able to help and it was a real delight to spend quality time with the children.
The photos are a gift from Cologne market which we have beautiful and treasured memories of from visiting years ago whilst we were serving in the Army.
See you soon.
It looks like you all had a lovely time. They soon shoot up at that age, don't they? It doesn't seem two minutes since Honey was born.ReplyDelete
I am glad you had such a lovely time with your grandchildren. I would love to be a grandmother - not looking likely at the moment though. xxReplyDelete
It's so precious, spending time with grandchildren, I have eight of my own and it's always a joy to take part in their lives.ReplyDelete
What a joy to be a grandmother. It's lovely to be able to share these moments with you.ReplyDelete
I have to say I can see you in Honey.ReplyDelete
Looks like you had a wonderful time with your grandchildren, they must be such a joy for you and your husband. Lovely window displays and goodies from the Christmas market:)ReplyDelete
I always enjoy seeing pictures of your visits with the grandchildren. and the neat shops you visit!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous pics of a lovely Grandma and Grandad having a great time with their beautiful grandchildren. Grandparenthood is such a very precious thing.ReplyDelete
I absolutely love the rug your daughter has....it would go really well in my lounge-x-
Grandma and grandpa having such a wonderful bonding time with their little grand kids. That sewing machine looks like the one in my house but mine is foot pedal.ReplyDelete
Nice five, you have such beautiful grandchildren. The thing I miss most about Germany is their Christmas markets.ReplyDelete
Your grandchildren are beautiful and I do understand the delight of spending quality time with them. I think we treasure the time more knowing that we don't have them to look after 100% of the time. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
nice post :)ReplyDelete
have a lovely weekend...
Bertie really is the big brother, so grown up doing homework! You all had a fun time which is so great!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the shop windows of Ampthill too! I see lots of lovely treasures!
Nothing like spending time with the Grands. See the holidays (and life) through their eyes is so special. Happy Friday!ReplyDelete
I can feel your joy! There is absolutely nothing like spending time and loving on your grandchildren. Ours were here last weekend and we only see them once or twice a year. It was precious time and I know you fee the same. I enjoyed seeing the photos of the shops too. Thank you for sharing with us.ReplyDelete
What a lovely time you had together, so kind of you to share it with us!ReplyDelete
How smashing. Special moments to be treasured. Have a good weekend.ReplyDelete
I absolutely love all your photos here! So beautiful and heartwarming, and sweet moments, too! :)ReplyDelete
I am happy for you that you got to spend such quality time with those two darling grandchildren. You're wonderful grandparents. I enjoyed seeing the pretty shops there.. what I wouldn't give to visit and see them myself. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete

I just had a lovely catch up of your November posts and am glad you had a happy 35th wedding anniversary, along with many good family times. I so admire your creativity and energy, and organization, Lorraine! xxReplyDelete
Special time and special memories. They grow up so quickly, it must have been a treat to spend this time with your beautiful grandchildren.ReplyDelete
What fun and good memories of time spent with your grandchildren. Nice gifts too from Christmas market. I'm cleaning up a bit as our grands will be here tomorrow and spending the night. Now I just need to get off the sofa and continue cleaning. So glad your daughter and husband had a good time away for anniversary! Happy weekend.ReplyDelete

Such sweet and cute kids <3ReplyDelete
Bertie and Honey are getting so big. How wonderful for all of you to have a chance to spend time and care for them while their parents were away. I hope they had a great time too.ReplyDelete
You and your husband are so lovely to all of your family. I can't believe how big the grands are getting. Little Buddy is reading too, it is like magic to hear him.ReplyDelete
That looks like a lovely store to browse in.ReplyDelete
I do like seeing those store windows, especially the one with it looks to be a santa sleigh out of paper.ReplyDelete
Such sweet children you have there. Thank you for visiting today.
Your grandchildren are so lovely, I bet you all had great fun together and how wonderful for your daughter and son in law to be able to have a mini break together. I love the dress in the window with the fir branches making up the skirt xxReplyDelete
Fun times alone with the grands...always good! I like the skirt that mannequin is wearing all made of boughs...sweet!ReplyDelete
loved seeing your five this week! I hope your husband is feeling better, I think of him often and send him healthy wishes.ReplyDelete
Enjoyed your five. That little sweetie Honey is a cute little armful.ReplyDelete
Such beautiful children. You're a lucky lady that you can spend time with them. The little one might be old enough to get excited about Christmas this year.ReplyDelete
Oh the joy of grandparenthood! Your little Honey bun is an absolute doll and I can clearly see how she would have her grandpa smitten. A great friday 5! Life's been good to you!!ReplyDelete
