Help Grandma Put Away the Christmas Decorations!
OK, so I am a little late
and it isn't
Hide and Go Seek,
a fun game like that.
The boys arrived at the shop yesterday at
Jenn had a doctor's appointment.
They were hyped.
Like Someone Just Had a Smartie Eating Contest Hyped.
It was a MONDAY!
Phone lines were a problem,
It was windy and we live in the sticks.
John was trying to call in orders,
wait on customers,
book a music act for the fair,
"Do you want the afternoon off?"
and reach for MY coat.
He grabs my arm and hisses,
"YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN....TAKE THESE BOYS AND GO HOME!"
(In man talk, that is an afternoon off?)
C'mon boys we are going to go to grandma's and play a little game called,
Let's Take the Christmas Decorations to the Attic!
(I know, I missed the whole, Decorate for Valentine's Day thing)
Not everything was still up,
but there were snowmen and gingers and....
well OK, there were still Santa Claus' up.
And to be completely truthful...
The Nativity is STILL up.
So we cleaned off this stand in the kitchen,
And we took the first load to the attic.
And they found a stash of Lego's there that I had put back for a rainy day.
And that was it for little boys helping me.
They were off building heavy equipment and running all over the house.
"Hey boys, anyone want some MORE Smarties?
How about some kool-aid?"
I did get this stand cleaned off.
The cabbage dish is a family joke.
Shelby hates it, always has since I paid a quarter for it at a yard sale.
I just have to put it out every now and then.
Finished this little bunny box yesterday morning.
It was a repaint of something that I had painted in my first painting classes way back in 1985.
I took a picture of it before I sanded it down.
Now to find that.
And my mom thought this sweater was too low cut,
so she wanted a cowl for it.
Living on the edge there, Mom!
Sunday, I got to take Wyatt out of church and spend the morning with him in the nursery,
Monday, Tyler and Logan,
Today I have Kendall for the day
tomorrow I get to go to Shawnee's sonogram with Gracelyn.
I would say it is shaping up to be a good week.
