How blessed we were today by a special delivery from “Gramma Home” – pronounced Gramma Home-ey for those of you who aren’t familiar with Selah’s coined name for Jesse’s mom. A beautiful shipment of plumerias arrived this afternoon to make “flower necklaces”, as Selah called them.
Jesse’s family runs Molokai Plumerias, growing the sweetest smelling flower that fills your house and brings you back to Hawaii no matter where you are :). We haven’t had any in quite awhile, and of course our little plumeria “tree” (full blown “tree” is a stretch for our little potted stick) does not seem like it will produce any such blooms in the near (or perhaps far) future. So how amazingly awesome it was to open up the most beautiful shipment and aroma this afternoon! Happy early Easter to us!
We struggled with the nap today, so instead we opted for stringing leis by the window in an attempt to feel like we were “picnicking” outside. It was a little chilly, so outside wasn’t the best option for Asher’s participation. What a special time it was, feeling like Hawaii wasn’t so far away and that Gramma & Grampee were part of our day. And how fun for Selah to get to “deliver” special little Easter presents to our neighbor girl friends down the street this afternoon that she made herself.
In typical fashion, I took a thousand pictures, and tried desperately to narrow down my post to just the “favorites” here:
Thank you, Gramma Home & Grampee, for such a fun afternoon with beautiful flowers that will make our house smell amazing for days. The only thing that could have made it better was if you were here to enjoy as well…wish you could have wrapped yourself up in the box too! 😉
