Mia puffy hearts her Ita

I guess with all the holiday craziness, I forgot to post some photos of our fun filled visit from Ita (my mama). I found these photos while looking for bokeh shots in my flickr photostream...I wanted to add some of mine to the Shutter Sisters post on the subject. Out of it I also get a lovely Love Thursday post.

This marks their second year of their holiday tradition of building a gingerbread house. Mia showed how she vibrates, gets frustrated and then finishes off with angry when given too much sugar. Between the icing and all the candies, Mia didn't stand a chance. Ita decided that next year, she'll be much more vigilant on her sugar watch :) They did have a lot of fun and came away with a super fab gingerbread house!








I love when I can relax and just watch my mom make some wonderful memories with her granddaughter. Mia brought book after book to Ita, scrambled on her lap and nestled in for storytime.






chookooloonks and friends have much more love to share :)

I love the last few shots of Mia with Ita. I totally agree with you on the memories they make with thier grandparents. They are one of a kind. The last two are especially my favorite. Ella takes her hands and caresses our faces and arms like that and it gives me so much joy to know that she is so loving. It looks like Mia is the same way! And then the different age you can see in the hands is wonderful too.

These are great shots of them! Yes, those gingerbread houses are dangerous confections. Much sugar intake occurs and that is never good LOL!
