momitforward Every winter, my grandpa would package up a big box of oranges from his 11 trees and send each of his grand kids citrusy goodness. It's amazing the oranges are ripe early in #Arizona this year, so we can enjoy his oranges one last time! 2d
  •   stuffedsuitcase Yum! What a great gift and memory! 2d
  •   janae_mymommystyle Oranges remind me of my grandpa, as well. I'd lay in bed with him and watch in amazement how he could peal it all in one piece. I still try to repeat this for my six daughters and one son. Merry Christmas! 2d
