The Winner of Getting to Know You

We just got home from a wonderful six days of R & R, just a totally fun get away with Parker. We had a great time. He and his Mom lived with us the first six years of his life, so there is a bond with him that I cannot really put into words.
He was the first grandchild to steal my heart...now three other little guys have also, but he was the first.
I was checking my Facebook a few minutes ago and I saw where this little 10 year old "tween"posted that he had a great time with Grammy and Pop. That's the kind of memories I want him to always remember.
Wow, do I love that boy!

NOW to the winner of the GIVEAWAY for the GETTING TO KNOW YOU post....and I did love getting to know you better. I plan to visit all your blogs soon. Parker drew from just the comments on that post.....and the winners are...because he wanted to draw two! They will be a SURPRISE gift that we purchased on our trip...so look for it in the mail......
