Fun times

    I was afraid he would be shy and just start warming up the last day, but he ran into my arms at the airport and we have had a grand time.  He gives everyone hugs and kisses and is just a doll.  Although my son was shocked to see his Gramma, my grandson thought nothing of it and gave her a big hug and kiss.  In fact today when we went over he gave my MIL a big hug and they both went backwards.  We all watched in horror as it seemed like in slow motion down they went.  And there wasn't a thing we could do about it.   My poor grandson started to cry and hid behind the couch, sure he had killed his gramma.  She was fine and we finally convinced him it was OK.  Now I can giggle about it but what a shock.  The hospice nurse was there and we checked her over.  My MIL said of course she didn't get hurt as she hit her hard dane head and it broke the fall. 

   The visit has been great.  My MIL has been laughing and hospice says they see a twinkle in her eye.  It kind of sad we can't go someplace special with him,but one of has to be with my MIL and my son understands.  Tomorrow I have to go back to work and they are staying at my MIL's and then leaving at 4 am.  I am going to miss them so much.  My grandson has gotten so big.  Twice the size he was and what a talker.  His favorite word is actually.  so cute.  My son has lost 40 pounds and is so handsome.   I will miss them also but he gave me a web cam so we can talk to each other that way.  Should be fun if I can figure it out.

   Well, take care all.

I'm so happy the visit went well, I know how much you've been looking forward to having them stay. Glad your grandson was so happy to see you all, bless him. Your MIL probably doesn't look so bad to him as he doesn't remember her as she was. I hope the next visit isn't so long in coming! Jeannette xx

I am glad that you all have enjoyed yourselves. Your MIL has a smile like she was happy. This visit looks like it has been good for her. I believe your son looks like his dad. Poor grandchild being so frightened when they both took a tumble. Glad that she wasn't hurt. Great pictures. Helen

Now that what I call bowling you!  Seriously I am so glad all was well when MIL was looked over by the Hospice nurse.   That would have been an awful shock to everyone. But just look at those two infectious smiles on the bottom picture! Now that's 'SPECIAL!'  Your grandson is at an age where he will accept everyone for who and what they are, regardless of their looks.  Would that that were possible for us all through the rest of life.
I can't get over the bottom picture.  It is so lovely.  That will be very special in years to come and I'm sure 'talked' about a lot too.
Wonderful family moments to treasure Julie and mull over once they have all returned home.  I'm doing that too now that my little 'Munchkins' have gone back home too.
Thank you for sharing these lovely moments.

That little guy is ADORABLE!!!  And your MIL really DOES look like she has a twinkle in her eyes....maybe it's from her head hitting the ground! (lol)  I'm sure she loved every minute of the attention.  Everyone looks great and the webcam sounds AWESOME!!!

Wow, what a little cutie he is.  Nothing like a happy little guy to put a smile on a sick person.  I'm glad you had a good visit, even though they aren't ever long enough.  I'm not sure if I commented before.  I did read this but for some reason I can't leave comments at different times.  Oh, AOL....Chris
