A few more pictures of our visit with Grandmama

The Build-A-Bear buddies are a big hit in this house.

Here's how I found Max when I went in to wake him from his nap yesterday!

Since Grandmama won't be with us for Max's birthday, she brought his gifts early. Max seemed to be just fine with that. :-)

He opened this one with awe and amazement. As soon as he saw what was under the wrapping, he looked up and said in a hushed voice, "Oh, my goodness. Oh, my goodness."

[I won't reveal what was inside because his cousins might be getting the same thing for their upcoming birthdays]

Just look at this sheer glee over the gift from Grandmama and Grandpapa. He's NEVER had a gift that was a bigger hit. He squealed with delight!

Cherissa, The "build-a-bear idea was awesome! I know Grandmama had a ball with all of you. It's okay to shed a few tears...won't it be the most awesome thing...when we get to heaven...no more tears???? Praying for comfort and peace for you as your Mom comes back to Siloam. I KNOW how much love a mother has for her child, as I know you do for your kids! Hang in there, Cherissa, we are in this with you and pray for strength daily! Hugs from Arkansas. Cindy
