Up at the reunion Grandpa Ellis had me follow him outside to his garage. On the table were about 50 little barn houses with a fold able fence that fits inside. Grandpa made each and every one of them. He wanted to make sure each child had one. I had seen one before at my mom's house and I knew my grandpa made it. I was pretty bummed out that I didn't have kids when he was giving them back then. So I was so excited to see that he had made more so that Bodie could have one. He signed the bottom and put the date on it. I just can't imagine how many hours he spent making them.
Later in the weekend my Grandma took me to the back bedroom and told me to be sure to pick out a quilt for our new little one. She had several quilts made and we could choose the one we liked the best. I looked over each one several times because I couldn't make up my mind. I finally chose the perfect one. It'll be perfect whether we have a boy or a girl.
We are so lucky to come from such talented, giving people. We will treasure these things in our home for a long time to come.
