Last Sunday was my first Grandparents Day and Michael's first time to our church....Both of those first I loved celebrating. Katie, Brandon, Michael, Katie's parents, her grandma and of course James and myself all went to Sunday service. As I was sitting there during praise and worship I couldn't help but to smile. Just having the family together and worshiping together completely filled my heart. I stood there wishing it could be this way every week but know it cant. Each person there has their own church that they love. I just really appreciate Katie working the day out and suggesting everyone spending the day together and going to church together. This was the gift she gave to the grandparents. I could not have loved anything any more!!! Precious.. I truly appreciate her and feel very thankful Brandon chose her to become part of our family.
We all went and filled our bellies for lunch and then headed back to our house for family pictures to celebrate the first Grandparents Day for us and Katie's parents.
Here are just a few of the 60+ pictures taken that day....Yes, I am the Gigi with the camera in hand ALWAYS....Trust me, I catch alot of flack. I often remind them "someday" they will be glad they have all of the pictures.
Can you see the JOY in my face?????
They had no clue I was taking this picture of them looking at each other
This is Katie's family...her dad, mom and Bunny (her grandma)
LOVE this picture......Me (Gigi), Sheri (She-She) and of course Michael. I am so thankful Michael will see that we are truly ONE family. I feel bad for those that don't have this kind of relationship with their Daughter-in-laws or her family. I hope Michael sees it as a blessing.
Another exciting weekend coming up....My parents are coming into town and will be seeing Michael for the first time since he was 1 day old. They are beside themselves with excitement. Mom has already told us all "hand off" when it comes to Michael. She is refusing to share!!!
I cant wait to share the visit with you all.
