Great Grandparents

My mom got here on July 18th right after we returned from the birth in the OR.  She was there throughout the day with us and took care of things at our house that evening while we stayed in the hospital.  My dad drove up the next day to join us all here.

We want to send a HUGE thank you to my parents for all of their help here.  Mom and Dad made us lunches, picked up dinners, ran errands for us, put balloons on our mailbox and showered us with love while they were here. 

My mom really went above and beyond anything we could have asked.  Here is only a partial list of the things she did to help while here:

  • Went grocery shopping for us
  • Got the oil changed in my car
  • Went to the post office
  • Ran errands (Babies R Us twice and groceries)
  • Cleaned our bathroom and the downstairs bathroom
  • Vacuumed our entire house
  • Did laundry every day for a week (ours and the babies)
  • Got up in the middle of the night to offer to help
  • Held the babies when they needed loving arms
  • Served dinner
  • Cleaned the kitchen
  • Did the dishes (probably a million times)
  • Sifted the litter boxes
  • Probably a million other things that I can't think of right now
Thanks so much Grandma and Granddad for all of your help!  We love you!


  1. Nothing like the love of a mother and the help they can offer ~ I've got mine here for Darcy's surgery...

  2. You never truly understand the depth of your parents love for you until you have kids of your own.
