"Gypsy Kids" Update
For those of you who keep up with the "Gypsy Kids", here's the latest! They are still firmly ensconced in Colorado. They are loving every minute as they now have the "bear can" trailer and can head up into the mountains with Mati and Dusty the dog. They've named the little metal trailer "bear can" because there are bear claw marks on the outside of the frame. (The thought sends chills up my spine).
For those of you who haven't followed this blog for long, the "Gypsy Kids" are my son, daughter-in-law and newest granddaughter, Matilda. That's who is in the great photos above.
Life goes on. All are in high alert for the upcoming birth of Matilda's baby brother in early January.
The fairtrade dot com gift company, www.mountainavenue.com is doing great. Gift orders for the holidays are coming in and Son is busy, busy overseeing the growth of the company. Dauther-in-law is busy trying to keep it all and everyone together as only wives and mothers can do.
Mati, short for Matilda is growing leaps and bounds. Talking up a storm and still "signing" all her words, in addition to talking. Brilliant.
Our latest addition is a webcam to the mix, so I can play patty cake and read books to her. And she can say to me, "I love you Gammy" or "patty cake" or whatever and I am totally delighted and enthralled. Technology at its best.
I marvel that the "Gypsy Kids" can be so far away and yet right here in my house with this wonderful gadget. Oh my, who could have ever imagined such a wonderful gift for families who are separated by geography?
The rest of the family is in the process of getting set up on webcams too so we can have "family gatherings". Isn't that amazing?
As a Mom and Grammy, I'm beyond thrilled!
