Winner & A Story

The winner of yesterday's giveaway is:

SARA of Sara's Art House!

Many thanks to those who left comments.
I shall do another giveaway soon!

Regarding the bottom photo...
This is one of my favorite Christmas ornaments.
It is a clear plastic star with the photo I cherish inside.

On the left is my older brother.
In the blue one-piece is my older sister.
My grandpa.
Me on the right.

My siblings and I were swimming in my grandpa's pool.
He arrived home and came out to say hi.
There we were; three heads bobbing in the water pleading, "Grandpa! Come swim with us!"
We begged and pleaded!

Just when we were about to give up, we hear a sudden, "Here I come!"
My grandpa came flying through the air, diving into the water, clothes and all!

Pure joy.
Pure silliness.
Happy love.
A moment of utter glee!
