  7. how cute... max and the snowman, I accompany little teochew, at the first moment I thought he bites in the snowmans nose ;-) the pictures are wonderful.

  8. you know i love these pics so much! and the video was darling, i could sit for an hour and watch them all~ i love how she lit him up, so cute, never seen that before, such fun and whimsy~ on the flip side, SO MUCH SNOW!

  9. I guess this is a take on stopping to smell the roses...the moment seems so gentle and sweet.

    Thanks for sharing your light!


  10. Makes your heart do flip-flops, doesn't it? What a sweetheart with his snowman! Wonderful videos to view.

    I love the lighted snowman! Are they individual solar lights? As the Nana of a future snowman-maker I would love to know ;)

  11. OKAY..How to light up a snowman!!!

    Grandmas need to know!

    Little max...Ohhhh...could you just eat him up!

    Noah's Mommy here :)
    The lit-up snowman took absolutely no creativity on my part, it's a LED kit that came from the Christmas Tree Shop. Very cute and easy-to-use, until your toddler yanks it right off of the snowman that is!

    I thought Max was trying to eat the carrot as well :)
    Fabulous pictures Nana!

  16. We just posted at the same time:)

    Here I found a link for you lucky ladies in the states..,38-338,default,cp.html?medium=ppc&source=Google&term=led_snowman_kit&SC=XNET8019&gclid=COCm89qwmKACFSJ25QodVUhteg

  17. beautiful photos as always, Nana and beautiful baby! my compliments to my mother and grandmother, of course! and so cute the snowman too....

  18. Oh I LOVED the Grandma quote and I adored Noah's picture (also the name of my son) and the joy that the simple snowman (love the lighting) gave him.

    Yep, I thought he was taking a nibble too.

    Love and best to you and your Nana followers,

  19. Bonjour Monique, je suis en adoration devant les photos, que de beaux souvenirs et l'idée du bonhomme de neige illuminé est vraiment féérique pour les enfants.

    Passe une belle journée.

  20. Little Noah is so precious and the photos of his encounter with the snowman are wonderful. One of those magical moments.

  21. Oh, what a precious sight! I think I'll be smiling all night over this one! Raymond Briggs' book is one of my favorites. I taught for 30 years and children's literature is one of my loves.

  22. It's magical how children see the world.

  23. Just dropping by for a visit with you...(before clematis season begins) Of course the alphabet boys are the best part.

  24. What a cutie! Can I borrow him for a while? I promise I'll return him....

  25. How adorable! 'A grandparent is old on the outside but young on the inside' - so resonant!

  26. Monique, I love when you share photos of your grandchildren. Such a cute picture of Max kissing the snowman.

    I don't think I have ever seen a snowman lite up. Great idea.

  27. Such a cute snowman, even if it did come from a box. I have never seen one like it!

  28. Oh M I could see the little kiss coming, and then there it was a peck on the nose (carrot) cute as.

  29. After a tough day at work, all I can say is that you've just made my day with the adorable pictures.

  30. Adorable!! You are such a lucky grandmother..

  31. Thank you so much for the info on the LED snowman lights Monique and Noah's Mommy :-)
