Wish Upon a Helicopter

Today was a busy day. I had some errands to run and I was invited to Emmie's first birthday party. She was so cute in her little pink party dress. Her ma-ma Sara made her a Disney Princess cake with pink frosting. (of course) She got lots of nice gifts which included clothes, dolls and books. Her great-grandma was even in attendance which was awesome. It was the perfect day to take a fourth generation photo. I love spending time with Jill, Andy, Lyle, Sara, and sweet Emmie. Rick would have been proud of his grand-daughter and you sure can see the family resemblance. I think Emmie looks a lot like Aunt Millie. She is a very happy little girl, full of smiles and sweetness. :D

Tonight when I arrived home, I put all my groceries away and decided to relax on the couch.I looked out my picture window  and noticed that there was a full moon. It was so bright and beautiful. I picked up the telephone and called Emma. I said, 'Hi sweetie girl, guess what? There is a full moon tonight, look out your window.' She said, 'Grandma, I see it and also the moon's craters. I think the craters are the brown marks.' In the background I could hear Chloe say, ' Emma, I see a wishing star!'  After a few seconds I heard Emma say, 'Chloe, I'm sorry but that is a helicopter.' Oh my goodness Emma, I'm sure your little sister was very happy to be told she was wishing on a helicopter. My grand-daughters always give me material for a good laugh. I don't know what I ever did without them. :D

  1. That is too funny. Leave to a sibling to burst the other siblings bubble :)

  2. How did I miss this post??? This story just made me burst out laughing. Now, everytime I think of the Disney song, I'll be singing 'When You Wish Upon a Helicopter.' Be sure to tell that to Emma.

    That is just the cutest story. I hope you're keeping a record of all the funny things those kids have said over the years. :-)
