“AAsher’s 12 days of birthday gifts” – Day 10 – Grandparents
Day 10 of “AAsher’s 12 days of birthday gifts”!!! I can’t believe there’s only 2 MORE DAYS!!!!!!!
Day 10 is all about showing AAsher’s “grand-parents” how much he appreciates and loves them!!
Our first stop was at AAsher’s Great-Aunt Kathy’s house! Aunt Kathy is more like another grandmother to AAsher than an aunt! She spoils him to no end!!!! She calls him her little “cuddle bear” and whatever he does (good or bad), it’s okay with her. lol We don’t get to see her as often as we would like, so it was so much fun to be able to surprise her with flowers today! When we got to her house, she wasn’t there!!! So, we had to call around and try to find her without her knowing what we were doing! Just when we were about to give up, we heard she was coming down the road, so we jumped back in the truck and hid around the corner until she pulled into the driveway. We hurried back and AAsher surprised her like Publisher’s Clearinghouse! She was so excited!! He gave her big hugs and kisses and of course SHE gave HIM a gift to take home. (spoiled kid) Thank you Aunt Kathy, we love you!!
Our next stop was NaNa’s house!!! She had no clue that we were surprising HER too!!! The look on her face was priceless when she opened the door and saw AAsher standing there! She had been so excited all year about AAsher’s 12 days of gifts and she shares every day! SURPRISE NANA, YOU WERE DAY 10!!! AAsher’s NaNa is the BEST!!!! She was spoiling him rotten long before he was even born! The day we found out that we were pregnant, she went out and bought a bunch of girl outfits and a bunch of boy outfits. lol She has always gone over and beyond to make sure that he has everything that he’s needed and has been a huge supporter for Down syndrome and all of the fundraisers and functions that we have. Thank you NaNa! We love you to infinity and beyond! You are the best!!
Our next stop (well after dark), is not a blood relative, but she has grown a part of our family in our hearts. When we got to her son’s house where she’s been staying after her surgery, she had already left to go get something for dinner, but we left the card and flowers for her for when she returned. She sent me the sweetest message when she got them I’m going to have to take AAsher down there for a few pictures with her in the daylight!! But for now, I borrowed a picture of her from her Fb page
Ms. Payne was our neighbor at the last house we lived in and she adopted my kids as her grandchildren. Especially Wayllon and AAsher (since they were home the most). From the first time she came to introduce herself to us, we have loved her! From all the gifts of love and cookies & taking kids to Wal-Mart for toys and her unstoppable support for everything that the kids are involved in, she couldn’t be any more a part of our family! We love you Ms. Payne!!!
Day 10 was a success!!
Sharing with your friends is encouraged!!! We want others to be inspired to do nice things for others!! It’s so much better to give!!
