Time with Grandma & Grandpa Stum :)

It's difficult to think of anything much sweeter than having my son, loving him with all my heart and getting a taste of how my parents love me. Well, I can think of one thing...watching him and my parents (his Grandma and Grandpa Stum) play and laugh together. It's pretty magical.

My wonderful Mom & Dad took some time to stay with us for a few days after we dropped off Corrie & Celeste in Idaho. We loved every minute of them here!!..and miss them like crazy already. They are such incredible, patient, creative, loving grandparents! Brooks is one of 17 (soon to be 19) grandchildren on the Stum side...and having them all to himself for a couple days made him one lucky boy :)

There was creative fun with play-doh one morning...

We enjoyed a gorgeous, sunny afternoon at the park...

And the day they left back to Washington it snowed!! Snowmen were built, snow angels were made, and hot cocoa was sipped...
The next time we see my Mom she'll be here for the birth of baby number 2! And my Dad will come shortly after :) Oh we can't wait!

When are you due?

That first line got my eyes a little misty- SO SWEET! And your parents really are special. So happy you all got to be together.

Was your mom at the birth of Brookes? we are trying to figure out if I want my mom and sister at our upcoming birth. Dan is hesitant because he wants me to rely on him (I'm doing a water birth at a center near the hospital, so no meds) instead of finding support from my mom/sister. It's a dilemma because I totally understand why Dan wants it to be just us, but I also really want to share it with the women I love. We were alone for Caleb's birth, but it was in a hospital, and this time around it will be much more homey. Any info would be extremely helpful!

That is one boy who loves his grandparents!! And your parents are totally obsessed with little B, I love it! Oh Haley, I've dreamt of snow...but I guess I forfeited that wonderful dream of a white winter land when we moved to the NW.
Make a snow angel for me :)

Look at all that glorious snow! I'm just itching to make a snowman....why is it in the upper 60's in Alabama this January!??! :(

I'm so happy that you got to spend this special time with you fam! How wonderful for little Brooks to have them all to himself...beautiful memories, for sure!

The settings in all of these photos are just GORGEOUS! Love the sunny mountains, and the snowy streets! Best of both worlds!! :D
