Christmas with the Grandkids

Life doesn't get much better than spending Christmas with the grandkids.

If you have grandchildren, you understand what I mean. They're an 8-year-old girl and an 9-year-old boy and they're so cute and funny. I wasn't able to fly in until 11 a.m. Christmas morn and they didn't even complain about waiting until I arrived to open the presents.

I asked the granddaughter last night if I was going to get a goodnight hug and she said you got one last night.

She got a camera for Christmas and said if she had a cord, she could upload them on Facebook but she wasn't allowed to have a Facebook page until she's 13. My daughter -- her mother -- said 18. She said she will be out of the house by then. I am curious when she actually does get on Facebook.

And when the boy asked if I liked twizzlers, I said I didn't know what they were. She said google them and then she pointed to images and she said click on that. I said you google at 8 and she said you didn't think I knew that. I google. These kids today are so computer savvy at such a young age.

I wish I could think of some of the other funny things they said.

Anyway, the turkey and the trimmings were great and enjoyed having leftovers, including turkey sandwiches, all day Monday, and my daughter even made a second chocolate pie because it was one of my favorites.

But the time with the grandkids made it so nice.

Hope you all had a merry and happy Christmas and that you have a Happy New Year.

  11. Glad you had a wonderful Christmas with your family!
    That age, 8 and 9, it's amazing what they know!
    My youngest is 9 now and all she wanted was an Ipod for Christmas.
    I think she knows her way around the computer better than I do sometimes.

  14. Sounds like a fantastic Christmas! :)

    Yes, they are tech savvy at a very young age. I remember when we moved and my daughter wanted to know if there was a playground with a tire swing nearby. I told her that I didn't know, but I was sure we could find out. She looked at my funny and said, "Why don't you just look it up on TireSwing.com?" She was 5. lol

  18. Glad you had such a great time. I really enjoy the grandkids (altho they are stepgrandkids) and younger children at Christmas time. In my mind, they are what make it so exciting!

  20. At the end of the day family is everything. My Dad used to say that "grandchildren are the reward for not killing your kids". Sounds about right to me- but I don't mind waiting 10-15 years to find out.
