Being a grandma is one of my most favorite things. I have 6 grandchildren already and number 7 is due to arrive at the end of March. I am lucky to have 2 grandsons living a few minutes away from my home now instead of across the world in S. Korea. I also have one of them in my classroom this year. How sweet is that? My other grandchildren are living about 3-4 hours away so they are close enough to get to on a long weekend.
This will be the first Christmas with everyone together in many years. It will also be here instead of down island. The great grandmothers are even coming.
Every Christmas the family gathers together and we have a huge family celebration and turkey dinner. Of course, exchanging gifts is part of the fun. It is so exciting to see the faces of our grandchildren as they open up their gifts.
I don't usually go to many stores, so I guess I must admit that one of the ones I frequent the most is Staples. I know that may sound strange to most people, but I like to look at the electronics and I am always needing more ink, paper, etc. I also love to hang out at the dollar stores and check out all the cool things they have there for about a dollar!
