2017 Top Ten Posts

Here are the top ten posts for 2017 on Grandma Ideas.The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to look back and reflect on the previous year.

Last year, we traveled to some lovely places — on our Caribbean cruise for instance. But our trip to Yellowstone was a bust. There was a blizzard (in the middle of September!) and Yellowstone was closed!

Our daughter had a baby boy. Huzzah for a new grandson! We now have 5 grandsons and 5 granddaughters. Isn’t that perfect?

We had a wonderful family reunion at Bear Lake, Utah. Everyone loves that place!

I read some terrific books: Code Name Verity, The Light Between Oceans, Me Before You, The Last Stand of the Tin Can Soldiers.

I was on TV twice — showing how to make super big bubbles and some easy Halloween crafts.

Of course there were some not so good times, some normal times (whatever normal is), and some boring times. (I can’t say that cleaning the toilets in my home is an adrenalin pumping activity . . .)

Now. On to the top 10 posts for 2017.
