In this case they can! Our Daughter came down to get her taxes done and brought the Grandkids with her. It has only been about 6 months since she moved up north, but it still seemed like a lifetime since we saw them.
It was wonderful to have Violet spend the night with us. Especially since she sleeps through the night in her own bed now. And having her tell me 'choo-choo' as she shared her Fruit Loops with me was as precious as you can imagine!
It always warms our hearts to see the Grandkids. It is still amazing to see how much they change in such a short amount of time. And apparently the feeling is mutual because when it was time to leave Emmett didn't want to go! (But I think that was really because of the Hot Wheels!)
