I'm baaaacckkkk!!!

Hey there!! I'm back from my trip to France! It felt so good to see my grandparents again after such a long time..and they looked so good too (94 and 89 years old.. sometimes I really forget that they are THAT old already.. hehe..)!!! They love to talk about the past so much.. and on my turn I love to listen to all those amazing stories. Too bad we had to go home this morning!!! Hopefully we'll be able to visit them again around Christmas!

Here are some pics of the last couple of days (the weather was really really grey.. so most of the pics turned out so dark.. such a pitty)

My little grandpa!!!
The 2 of us in my grandparents their garden
My cutiepatootie at the parc in Nancy (we did some shopping in the city and spent some time at the parc.. so much fun!)
My mom (yup.. she was there too to help my grandparents a little bit), me and my grandma just before leaving this morning.
We'll have another day off tomorrow! So happy about that as we're so tired of the long trip today! We don't have anything planned yet.. so that might mean 'scrapbooking' for me.. hehe..

I'll leave you with an older layout that I've created for Dreamstreetpapers back in April.
I'm off to do some laundry (my favorite thing.. whahaha.. NOT!). I'll try to update asap with some 'fresh' creations and some fun news!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

XOXO
Nancy

Wat zien je opa en oma er fit en vitaal uit en inderdaad zou je ze hun leeftijden niet geven.
Geweldig dat je ze nog beide hebt.
het wordt bijna saaai om te zeggen maar je layout is weer prachtig. Die groene letters zijn mooi.

Wilma said...

Fijn dat je weer terug bent meid! Best bijzonder dat je grootouders al zo oud zijn en gelukkig nog goed gezond.
Je lootje is weer prachtig!

Marsha said...

welkom terug ;-) leuke foto's van je weekendje in frankrijk ... mooie lo heb je weer gemaakt en heb je nog tijd gehad om vandaag nog wat nieuws te scrappen ?
Vandaag zijn wij op stap geweest voor gordijnen in ons nieuwe huis en we zijn geslaagd ! Nu nog 3 tot 5 weken wachten tot ze klaar zijn dus dat is wel jammer. We willen nl. volgend weekend of in die week daarna in het nieuwe huis gaan wonen. Zal dus eerst even iets moeten gaan verzinnen wat als 'noodgordijn' moet gaan functioneren ;-)

Fink said...

It is good that you want to listen to their stories! So many of us don't want to listen to what they have to say and it is so important as well as interesting! Glad you had a good time!

Rachael said...

Welcome home!!! So wonderful that you got to visit your grandparents!! I love the pictures!!

Mimi73 said...

Je te trouve bien chanceuse d'avoir encore la présence de tes grands-parents. Il y a déjà 22 ans que mes grands-parents sont décédés. J'avais 10 ans quand le dernier nous a quitté.

***
Pour ce qui est de ta page et tes photos...vous êtes toujours aussi beaux...et ton travail est remarquable, comme toujours!

Bonne semaine à toi chère Nancy!

Mimi

charlotte said...

I seems like you had a wonderful trip to France. And your grandparents looks so sweet! :-)

Everytime I see your LOs I have a big smile on my face. They are so cheerful and colorful and I just love your style! :-) I'm amazed how you manage to mix round photos with "ordinary" sized photos. It's so well done.

I wish you a great week!
