A GRANDGIRL BREAKFAST...

YOUNGEST granddaughter, DEEDS, spent the night with me not long ago
and we, as usual, had
the best time...
Now she LOVES cinnamon rolls..
bacon...
cheesy scrambled eggs...
fresh fruit...
STRAWBERRY milk...
and SUNNY D...
sooooooo
don'chaknow that we had it ALL...
that's what grandmothers do !!
*

OH, I know I might be partial....

but, isn't she the CUTEST little thing !!
She looks so much like her mom at that age...*suck in breath and heavy sigh...

...stretchhhh.....


She loves the cheery CHERRY dishes so of course, they were just perfect for our breakfast time together...


She said, "Oh, Memaw...a fresh strawberry in my milk..." and smiled the BIGGEST smile...
*


and she was with me the day I stopped at a garage sale and bought vintage glasses for juice...


Do you know the PURE pleasure and heart-filling love of having breakfast with a tiny, little GRANDGIRL ?

So fulfilling that you ALMOST don't have to eat ANYthing!!

and every time they smile at you, your heart just fills totally UP with love !!

And, may I just say that I am blessed beyond measure with SEVEN grandgirls and THREE grandboys...WHEW....so awesome !!

"I love you to the moon and back, dear Deeds."

Nuuuuu, a truly GREAT grandmother would have thrown in a slice of apple pie, sweetpea!! That's what I plan on doing when Caroline gets teeth and can eat something besides milk... : -)

How great! I truly hope that I'll have one some day-my sons are not cooperating:@(

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I can't wait to spend more time with mine as they get older and can come for a sleep over.

Debby said...

Grandchildren are the best. This morning my first day on a new job at my granddaughter's school. I got to see her on her way to her classroom and give her a big hug. Made my heart smile.

Lori said...

Bless your heart for commenting. No grandbabies yet for moi. Soon I hope, two married.

Debbie said...

What a perfect way to start a morning, setting a pretty and festive table for a granddaughter.

Oh, I dream of the day!

Funny that I remembered while reading this that the only place that I had strawberry milk as a little girl was at my grandmother's house.

I sure enjoyed this post!

Julie Harward said...

I do know that feeling...6 of mine just spent 2 days with me and I love them so so much! Where did you get the cups with th cherries on it..I have some bowls like that and would love a bunch more! Looks like a great breakfast and time together! :D

Annesphamily said...

A fun breakfast with a fun girl! I like to spend time like this with my grandson. Although he is now 14 and a teenager ackh......we are still good buddies. I like anything related to phamily time! Love your breakfast choices and cool settings. Anne

Shug said...

Just by chance would those happen to be Liberty Blue dishes in the background?

Looks like you had a fun filled morning and made a lot of memories along the way for both of you to share. By the way...the food looks great...

Hugs to you,
shug

xinex said...

Oh how fun, bj! What a precious time you had with your granddaughter who is such a cutie and I am not her grandma so I am not biased. I miss mine. I blogged about my grandson today because he turned 3. Then, my 11 year old granddaughter called to ask if I can blog about her too, lol. As if I never had....Christine

Mary Ellen said...

What special memories you are making with your grand daughter!! I wish I had had a grand ma like you!

I think that is great that you were able to spend some time with her :) Being a grandparent is so special and I'm glad you spoiled her :) The breakfast... yummy!! Have a great rest of the week. Hugs ~ Laura

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Oh my goodness...this was the bestest blog I've read in a long time. Such cute cute photos, and the 'vintage glasses' are so nautical [they'd fit really well in MY diningroom!] Sweet, sweet little G-daughter!!

Loved this post.
I do hope you can find time sometime to play the Thursday Themesong Meme. It's really fun, and quite easy to do.

Thanks for the visit BJ.

Theresa said...

She is precious and I know that kind of love:) Enjoy your day dear BJ! HUGS!

JEANNE said...

Good morning bj, your darling Deeds is the cutest little thing. Did she eat all that food? Big smile. It looks delicious. Spoiling our grands is the best reward for having grands. I can imagine their memories of you would be this... My Grandma was the best cook and the most fun ever. HA! I hope mine think the same about me!!! We are blessed bj.

Have a wonderful day my dear sister friend,
Love, Jeanne

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

I love this extra special post, BJ!!

My oldest grand girl wants to go to the lake with us as soon as she can get a day off. I have truly missed our special times together since she has grown up and has a job and a fella. She sent a note on my facebook the other day, asking when we plan another lake trip. We are trying to work out a time. Can't wait to share breakfast with her, again!

Carol at Serendipity said...

Sounds like a perfect breakfast to me! Time just flies.....

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

She is a cutie pie. I don't have a grandgirl. I have 2 little grandboys...and at 3 1/2 and almost 2, they want poptarts. They don't want to drink tea or eat from pretty plates...they just want to shove it in and get back to playing *sigh*! Hopefully, my daughter will provide a grandgirl in a few years. I love my little guys though, and I do melt when they smile at me!

The Fajdich Times said...

She is so cute. I kid wouldn't enjoy a breakfast like that!! Looks like she had fun:)

niko said...

Stacy said...

Deidra had the BEST time that day! I am so thankful that my children have such a wonderful grandmother (just like mine). She also had a good time looking at this blog post. Thanks Mom!

What a gorgeous girl - and how lucky you are to have each other!

I'm working on grandchildren - don't know how to get from here to there, but I'm working on it!

Sarah said...

BJ, I think it goes both ways. DEEDS is a lucky little girl to have you in her life. Wonderfully sweet post, and I don't just mean those cinnamon rolls. LOL

Granddaughters are so precious! I have a six year old one. So very different from my three sons!! I love cooking for her and because she like to cook we try to prepare something together when she comes to see me.
West Texas, huh... hmmmm, San Angelo??
Have a great weekend.

I just simply love this. I miss living near my parents and that my kids do not get to do this all the time (my son did up until he was 4). Grandparents are awesome!
