The grandchildren

Our grandchildren spent the last 4 nights with us while dad and mom were at a pastor's conference in Oregon.
The kids brought several stuffed animals with them to sleep with.
And mommy got them each a Bravery Ballerina Bear. It isn't easy having mommy and daddy gone for several days!
But we had lots of fun! The weather was great! Hurray for January in Kansas! Although usually we do have snow, we haven't this year. It has been in the 40's and 50's.
The kids said they would be our personal GPS (Sophie said "VBS") and guided us to the park in their neck of the woods.

It has been warm enough that the Canada geese are not going south. They are congregating here! And boy are they ever congregating! Like a mega-church! Thousands!!

They are beautiful to watch.
The ice was breaking up around the edge of the lake and was making tinkling sounds like wind chimes. It was so pretty!!
We spent one morning making cookies.

I let them put sprinkles on one pan of chocolatey chocolate chip cookies.
Will post more about what we did another time! Grandchildren are so fun!

I heard that same tinkling of the ice on the water! It was the neatest thing. And those geese! Oh my, there sure are plenty of them this year! *honk honk*
