Littlest Gem~

I was lucky enough to travel to Grand Junction to visit
my Littlest Gem! 
Layla Lynn
I learned so much more about her while I stayed at their
house!  This girl is so darling!  She is so smart~!   At three, she recognizes all the 
alphabet and her numbers!  She loves school and HOMEWORK!
I found out she loves when I softly rub her arm... Just like Sarah
and Molly~
She is silly and fun!
We baked cookies together one day!
Layla loves to wear her Princess dresses...
all day, every day!

She did all the sprinkles!
Her Papa, Tegan, helped us too!

Homework time!

I went to Layla's school to share Music In Motion with her classmates!
They had so much fun!

She made a darling ornament at school for her Mommy and Papa!
Her little handprint turned into snowmen!

I love to snuggle with this princess!

She had "sleepovers" in Meme's room every night!

My "room" had some special touches being added in...
Photo's on the nightstands...
made me feel right at home!
Family photos on the wall!

And then across from the bed, these words were placed
upon the wall...
with lines for hanging photos on... photos to come!
I thought this was the sweetest idea!
I did feel like it was A Piece of Home~
My precious bedmate sound asleep!

I bought Layla a Hello Kitty cd player that came with microphones~
What fun we had with that... singing to our hearts content!

I got to stay 5 days in Grand Junction with Tegan, Kelley
and Layla Bug.   
Christmas is so exciting!

Layla got to help me open my gift early since we needed to ship it home
to Ohio before we hit the road for Breckenridge to meet up with Danny and

Oh my goodness...
It is a beautiful framed cork board... with all my favorite wine corks!
I have been saving and sending them to Kelley!  So have all my friends!
We are big wino's, the lot of us!
I love it!

Tegan painted a picture of the mountains and added a clock mechanism ~
so I will always know what time it is in Grand Junction!
( I admit~ I have called too early a number of times...
saying I forgot what time it was there!)
No excuses now!

On the morning of the 19th, we got in the car and headed up the mountains, 
thru the pass to Breckenridge!
The trees in Grand Junction in the morning are full of
frost and so pretty~

Christmas with the boys and their girls...
What fun!
