Soooo we swiped the little guy for an overnight! He gladly put on jammies and brushed his teeth and hopped into "his bed" in the grandtot room. I wasn't even halfway through reading the bedtime story and he was fast asleep! This morning Steve's alarm went off at 6:45 and I heard Jameson stirring in the other room. So I went to his door and asked if he wanted to come and cuddle for a while. A sleepy retort mumbled from the bed: "No Gramma, I am sleepy" and he went back to sleep till 8 a.m. Then he came in and cuddled with me for a while. What a fun little snuggly guy.... He looked at this pic and says "I have BIG EYES" Yes, I guess he does.
He was very busy taking care of details while Granfaddah was at work. He decided to set about removing the tiles from our fireplace to save for the new gas log one we will be putting in. He tried to do a good job, but his plastic tools just didn't quite cut it. Guess it will have to wait for a while.
The morning sunshine was streaming in the leaded glass window, so he found the rainbows to be a fascinating feature to playing on the staircase. I shared a cup of coffee and sunshine and rainbows with my oldest grandson. How can it get any better than that?
I was happy to see him bellied up to the island to help me in the kitchen.
Jameson made sure they were tasty,
after he added colorful sprinkles to the mix.
(I think that is a wink!)
We took a little ride to the local hardware store down the street. It was wayyy too cold to walk. The wind chills were in the 10 to 20 degrees below zero range. At the hardware store, they have a pet section with live rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish and birds! It was a fun time, and we picked out two toys for him to take home to his kitties, Claire and Dexter.
After a dinner out at the local Dairy Queen (his choice) we loaded him back up and hauled him home again. He said he missed his kitties, but he would come back and sleep again in "HIS" bedroom at our new house.
Yes, Buddy, you can come back. But you have to fight off your four other cousins to claim that Grandtot Bedroom as your own! Hahahahaa
Grandmuddah is pooped out, but Granfaddah hauled me around Menards and Home Depot tonight. We stocked up on supplies to work on the house this weekend. I think tomorrow morning we will hit the ground running, and have a few fun things lined up to work on. Some might think we are nuts to look forward to work, but it's creating and coordinating and compromising that is making this house work out to it's very best!
