Last evening the calls to see if Papa and I were home began to come in.
Before we knew it we were surrounded by grandchildren who
showered us with hugs, hand made gifts, a heart shaped balloon,
a plate of fresh baked cookies, and heartfelt Valentine's in all sizes!
Love was in the air. It was an evening that gave
this grandma's heart a great big squeeze!
On a funny note:
One grandson gave Papa a bag of Cracker Jacks
as a Valentine's gift that he had gotten at his school
Valentine's party earlier in the day.
Papa: "Are you sure you want to give this to me?"
Grandson: "Yah, I don't like them?"
Papa: Did you know that there is a prize inside?
Grandson: "There is???!!!!"
(mixed expression of surprise and regret)
Papa: "Yep, let's open it now so that you can have the prize."
Grandson: " Okay!"
The prize was a pencil topper
and a fun fact.
Did you know that a typical pencil can write 45,000
words or draw a line 35 miles long?
That is a very fun fact indeed!
