As some of you know, last weekend my family and I took a road trip to the southern Oregon coast, to celebrate our granddaughter's first birthday. I cannot believe how much Madison has grown since July, which was the last time we saw her! She is walking, saying simple words, "Nana" being one of them (!!!!!), and getting into mischief. Her smile lights up the room and she is not stingy with her cuddles. (Especially if you are holding her favorite blanket, named "Bobby"!) This week, I am grateful for time. Time that I get to spend being a grandma. Time that my husband is actually able to take off so we can make the trip. And for all the time that I will get to spend with future grandchildren. With 9 kids, that could be a lot of "time"!

"Did someone say cake?"
Madison's first birthday.

I came to visit your menu plan but included a little visit with Madison. My grandchildren are 4 and 2; I am also a Nana. It's just the best fun I have ever had. I get to see them this weekend...so excited. I host a weekly blog event called Crock Pot Wednesday and would love for you to participate. Mister Linky is up for this week's Crock Pot Wednesday and there's a giveaway going on. Come check it out.
