Here we are in a snowy, chilly February already! Hopefully spring is peeping around the corner. We have had one hectic, roller coaster winter havent we? Holidays, birthdays, snow days - and of course sicknesses too! I think we were all a little excited when that silly groundhog saw his shadow!
Someday I hope you kids read these blogs and get just a glimpse of how much I love you - and how much fun (and work) your dad and I have had with the honor of being your Mommy and Daddy. Parenting isnt always easy - and it isnt always fun - but it is always a blessing and your dad and I try our hardest to remind ourselves that each and every day.

Although you did not get to see Gramma nearly as much she or we would have liked, there is no doubt she loved the three of you very much. She was so proud to show you all off at any given chance. Her walls - which were once covered with her amazing artwork - now tributes to our three little snowflakes. In hindsight it seems so obvious there was more we should have done. We should have called more, visited more, been better at keeping in touch. But thanks to Skype we were able to partially bridge the geography gap, and near the end I am sure seeing you little ones on the computer were the motivation she needed to get through the day.
There was always a special place in her heart for you Isaac. I am sure she saw her 'baby Jason' every time she looked at you. You were the one who made her a Grandmother - and eventually coined her GrammaMaberta. Gramma was sure you were going to be an artist like her and your Daddy. She thought for sure you had the gift - a gift Mommy surely NEVER received! Her last visit here you two spent hours in the basement painting and playing with clay. She commented how you had such an eye for detail and great concentration when you were painting (concentration??? my Isaac??). I hope she is right! I hope her passion for the arts has rubbed off on you too - as it has on your daddy. She loved you with all her heart and I know her spirit and memory will live on in you.

We love you and will miss you Gramma Maberta. May you Rest in Peace. xoxo
Love you all,
