They are dear beyond words.
When I met them they were the parents of teens and tweens.
Now those kids are grown and have little ones of their own.
Their grandparent names are Grandpere and Babbi. Babs for short.
I was lucky enough to be invited to celebrate a very special evening with
four generations of their family.
There were all these young cousins. So sweet.
Just look at all those busy hands!
The young parents were also very busy!
THIS took some wrangling on the part of at least one mama.
We did it FAST. Totally worth it.
Do you see that beautiful great grandmother looking on?
She is known as Granny. She is the sweetest. Ever.
And she is a prayer warrior.
Sisters. All by marriage.
Did I mention that this family has some expressive hands?
There was a birthday celebration in the works here for Babbi.
She couldn't be more dearly loved.
It was also their last gathering for awhile with the whole family.
Their kids are having wonderful opportunities,
calling them elsewhere.
