Oh how I love seeing this child so happy! I’ll never turn down a kiss. 💋 I hope you are with your family relishing some moments that will be forever memories. I never dreamed I would be where I am in life right now, so I’m grateful Nana and Papa came in town to start some fun traditions this year for Hayden. (Lots of ideas on blog now). I’ve never laughed so hard trying to finish making our gingerbread village this past weekend. YES- full on village! lol Talk about team work to get this done;) SuperNana and Papa are MUCH better than I am, but I’m learning from the best. Hayden picked @RickyZoomOfficial for his house. We talked about being a team player (and not eating all the marshmallows so we could ALL use them! lol) just like Ricky Zoom and his team of bike buddies:) Parents, have you seen @RickyZoomOfficial? Must see if you’re 3…33 or 43:) And in the spirit of giving, I put up a Ricky Zoom giveaway on facebook for your kiddo! I’ll add a link in stories to make it easy to get to my page. #RickyZoomHoliday #Sponsored #mommyandson #grandsons #familytraditions #preschoolactivities #thisis3 #happyboys #haydenjhandmommy
