Making Tamales with Grandma {Grapevine, TX}

Grandmothers are magical. They can transform anything into an extraordinary moment and can root traditions deep into our memories. I met up with a special grandmother who regularly cooks with her grandsons. We gathered in her fabulous kitchen (like seriously… it was a dream!) where little hands explored, measured, kneaded, and played. Her love poured over the boys and their sweet excitement was infectious.

Amazing grandmas don’t worry about messes or if things are perfectly done. They care if their grandchildren are having a good time, which was precisely the focus that morning. I loved documenting this experience and was tickled when a “snowball fight” broke out at the end. Magic, indeed!

Merry Christmas to all – I hope that your day is filled with warm stories and fond experiences!
