the sweetest bouquet from the sweetest heart!

Up early as usual.  Torry informed me the other day that he needed to have an overnight friday night because his mommy and daddy were going to a party and only his grammie can watch him!  how do you say no. lol!!  But when I wake up in the morning I have to sneak.. seriously sneak around in my house.  Because if he wakes up when I do.. he will get up and talk. and talk .. and talk!  And my ears will fall off.    I dont like my ears to fall off before .. oh you know... 9:00 am!  lol! 

He is pretty darn awesome though.  He brought me these flowers.  These are the sweetest flowers Ive ever recieved.   He told me on the phone this week that he had flowers in his backpack for me, but not to worry because they dont have to go in water.  He said but they are not paper flowers grammie.  But they are not real he said.   He told me that he got them at school.  So Ive been waiting all week and last night was the night. 

And you know what he said to me,  we were putting the flowers in a vase and he said, "Grammie I just wanted you to know how much I love you and next time I'll get you real ones"   And I said You dont ever have to give me flowers again, because these are the most special flowers Ive ever recieved and they will last forever.   and they will, because, I will never throw them out. 
Bethany told me the story behind the flowers.  His headstart teacher was throwing them away and he asked if he could take them to give to his grammie.   Isnt that precious? 
I am blessed!
I love my grandpies!  Every one of them!
Happy Saturday!

Oh thank you. I am writing this with the big smile still on my face and a tear in my eye. My oldest grandson lives with us and is 20. This story reminds me so much of him. We are truly blessed with grandpies.

That little boy is just adorable. To be loved so much by him makes you about the luckiest grandma ever! Enjoy, Viv, because they grow up so fast and at his age we are making memories, wonderful lifetime memories. The years fly by!
I remember those babysitting days and sometimes it was hard but always a joy. are lucky to have all that sweetness given to you.

Oh, those grandchildren are sweet! Our littlest one asked me if she could have my phone when I'm dead. Where do they come up with this stuff? Gotta laugh. XO

If his heart is that BIG at this age, well I can only imagine him in the future. What an angel.
