Great Grandma and Grandpa B Came for a Visit

 Great Grandma and Grandpa B came into town for Grandpa's sister's (Esther) funeral in Wichita. Instead of driving all the way to Wichita from Utah they decided to fly to us to see all the family and then Bonnie drove them out to Wichita.

 It was so nice to have them come to the house to spend some great one on one time with the kids.

 This chair has always seemed like a big wing back chair to me, that is until Grandpa sat in it.  Grandpa is such a giant of a man in stature and character.

 Grandpa is a baby whisperer.  He has magic with these little ones they just love him.

 When they came to our house, Abbie made a B line right for Grandpa.

 We feel so blessed to have Great Grandparents in our lives!! They are great examples to each one of us.

This last Monday with them in town Great Grandma and Grandpa did Family Home Evening for us and they talked about what life was like when they were little - which was so fun to hear and helped us appreciate so many of the luxuries we now have to make our life a little easier. Also, Great Grandpa is famous in our family for being an excellent story teller so of course we all requested one of Grandpa's stories and I got it on video, it's Jack and the Beanstalk:
