MLK Day Skyping with Rosie

Gus and Rosie had no school today so we Skyped.  First she introduced me to her new doll, Samantha.

Then Rosie told me ALL about a 'movie' she recently watched with her Mom and Dad. Essentially it was about a worm who ate some books.  (Yes, he was a bookworm.)  "He was a very naughty worm because, Gromma, we should always be gentle with books." Somehow Tinkerbell was involved.  Also Tinkerbell's sister whose name was Periwinkle according to Gus, but Rosie was certain her name was Fairywinkle.  If there is not a fairy named Fairywinkle, there should be.  She told this story with great animation, and much repetition.  And I loved every minute.

Lastly, your eyes do not deceive you.  Gus shaved.

Birthday Skyping with Rosie

Today is my birthday so Gus and Rosie called early this morning (especially early for them).  Getting to Skype with them on a school day was the best birthday surprise ever.  Gus apologized for morning hair and Rosie is eating yummy yogurt.

Rosie decided to wear her Snow White dress today.  Gus opted not to be Grumpy.

2014 Skyping with Rosie

A couple of days ago Gus and Rosie and I Skyped for the first time in this new year.  So sorry Meara had to work.

Gus & Rosie share a beautiful smile in this picture.  I imagine they are looking at Meara so it is no surprise why they are so happy.  This picture certainly makes me smile.
