That's what a visit from Papa and Grammie is like... sweet, sweet, sweet. We were happy to have them with us this weekend and treated them to some time out in the cold at the Bronte Creek Maple Syrup Festival. Nothing says, "We love you, Grammie and Papa!" like grandkids hyped up on maple syrup.

Thank you for the Jesus figure you gave Joseph for Christmas.
Yup, we are so grateful to have this Jesus in our lives. He has been awesome at helping Joe go to sleep at night, put himself back to sleep in the middle of the night, and settle down for naptime. I only said it once to Joe - "If you have trouble falling asleep, just ask Jesus to help you" - and ever since then, he insists on taking Jesus to bed with him, wrapped up in his little fist. Sometimes, in the middle of the night, Jesus gets lost in the sheets or falls out of bed. In the morning, Joe then reports the status of Jesus' whereabouts: I lost Jesus... I found Jesus... Daddy found Jesus... Jesus fell in the crack. All interesting soundbites on their own. Then Jesus goes back on the shelf or sometimes sits in a tractor, watching as we play and read and go on with our day. He is a helpful guy.
So thank you for giving us Jesus.
The Kantors (and their Jesus)

We love how Joe loves them. In his two years, he has been blessed to know my Grandma Pat and David's Grandma Kantor. And now while we pray for Great-Grandma Pat in heaven, we are so glad to have Great-Grandma Kantor to visit and hug. Watching Joseph march into her room and greet her with a "Hi Great-Grandma!" even before the rest of us got off the elevator, and then make himself comfortable in her lap, makes me so glad. Grandmas have the best love - and cuddles - to give.
