S: Our First Year with Kaia
BC: Dedicated to Grandma Kay From: Kaia Leigh Schnoor Thank you for making my first year one to remember forever.
FC: our first year with | Kaia Leigh
1: Grandma you are so special. Your love knows no bounds. A room has special warmth whenever your around. You think I am cute and talented and maybe even wise. But I know that is why all grandparents see through loving eyes. Everyday with you is precious. I'm so grateful for the time. Of all the grandparents in the world I am thankful you are mine! | Grandma's hugs are made with love Everything my grandma does Is something special made with love. She takes the time to add the extra touch That says "I love you very much". She fixes hurts with a kiss and a smile And tells good stories grandma style. It is warm and cozy on her lap For secret telling or a nap. And when I say my prayers at night I ask god to bless and hold her tight. Cause when it comes to giving hugs My grandma's arms are filled with love.
