Nana in the Ville (kinda/sorta)

Benson and Nana have all these little games they play.  He absolutely loves playing with his Nana.

Two to three times per week, he asks if he can call nana on the "com-poo-ti-ere."

So sometimes Nana comes for playdates in the afternoons...
They play rice box together.


And she tells him stories over the "com-poo-ti-ere" and they always start with "Once upon a time.... there was a little boy named Benson...."  and he just eats that up! 


And he gets to tell her all about his day and he normally has his own stories to tell.... and they usually  start with "Once upon a time.... there was a little boy named Benson...." and sound strikingly similar to the one Nana just told.


Here's a screenshot from one of our many "visits" with nana and papa.

A couple of days ago, we called them on the computer, but only papa was home.  While we were talking, we heard the garage door open (at nana and papa's house) letting us know Nana was home.  Their computer room is upstairs and Benson hollered, through the computer, "We're UP HERE NANA!!" 

Also, do please note the white blur here... that'd be peaches... Benson isn't the only one who loves their Nana!

Can you see what's going on in this screenshot?

Yeah.  Benson's having Papa sniff his arm pits.  Through the computer.
Must be a boy thing?

And here, we got to visit with Lash too!
Benson wanted to show them something on his "top bunk" and judging from the looks on nana and lash's faces, it must have been really interesting...

We're so thankful for modern technology and that even though we're over an hour farther than we were, we still get to see Nana and Papa just as much as we did when we lived right down the road! 

We are so thankful for NANA!!!


  1. SO cute! I'll be even more thankful for this modern technology when Caleb is deployed. It is so great!

  2. Oh I just love this post! How cute and sweet! AND A big AMEN! I honestly do not know what I would do if I could not "see" my family! Going home one or two times a year is hard but thanks to technology it is a lot easier!! I can deal with the 6 hour time difference!
