Our lives from birth are filled with those around us who influence us, love us, and help raise us. The people who inspire us can be any age and can hold a special place in our hearts.
I feel grandparents and great grandparents have very significant roles in children’s lives. It is a love that can be indescribable at times. Children look to their grandparents for not only love, but for wisdom and confidence to be themselves. I was very blessed to of known my grandparents but, I lost them at a young age. I have very fond memories of them and cherish those memories very much. I am sad that my girls have never met my grandparents because they would of loved them but, they are blessed to have two sets of amazing grandparents and two amazing sets of great grandparents on my husband’s side. Their grandparents and great grandparents cherish them and the feeling is very mutual. I see their excitement when I mention any of their names and it warms my heart. Everyone teases I take so many pictures and I do this so that our family can look back and enjoy the moments we have spent together.
Budsies was able to transform one of our favorite drawings into a plush toy that we can love and cherish forever.
The peacock drawing has always made us smile and it is bringing even bigger smiles now.
I love how they transformed the details from my daughter’s drawing she drew her daddy 3 years ago into a sentimental gift we can all love. The large smile and bright colors were a perfect match. The plush is so soft and cozy you will love hugging your one-of-a-kind creation over and over, again.

We went to Benner’s Farm for their annual Easter Egg Hunt and it was adorable. We met the Easter bunny, successfully took part in the Easter Egg Hunt and we loved seeing all the animals on the farm. Spring Festivities on the farm is always a great celebration.

Local parents shared their photos and ideas, we had a great Giveaway provided by Elf on A Shelf and we even created a Pinterest Page with the photos of the elves that were provided by local parents.
