We miss Grandma

My mom came this past Wednesday and left this morning. Eva is so sad and keeps asking for her, and I'm feeling a bit lonely myself. We had a wonderful time with her here, and she put my life back in order. Mowed my lawn, weeded my jungle (which used to be a garden, but it doesn't qualify as that anymore), got my new sewing machine up and running, helped my complete a plethora of sewing projects (including the kids' Christmas pajama pants), did my dishes, entertained my kids, slept in Eva's bed with Eva every night, let me go to the gym and take my sweet time working out alone, sat in the car with the kids while I grocery shopped, and many other helpful little things. To all you who live close to your moms, count yourselves lucky. Come back soon, Grandma!

So fun! I am one of those lucky ones who lives close to my mom, and I am not sure how I could do it anyother way. I really try not to take it for granted. So here is a random question. Cute Sweater/sweatshirt! Where did you get it? I had a couple a few years ago similar from Old Navy, but they are all worn out, so I think I need to replace them.

I am so glad you had a wonderful time. The fall pictures are great. Before you know it Andrew will be home!!!!! We made all of our Christmas plans and we are already getting soooo excited!!

I feel for you. That's way cute that she slept with Eva. No wonder she's going through big time withdrawals. I bet she's missing you and your kiddos too!

I know how you feel. When my mom left after coming when Averi was born, I sat down and cried because I had to do all of those things by myself again and I didn't know how to do it all with two kids.
