Hello out there! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
We were blessed to spend time with all of our children and grandchildren over
the past week.
The week of family time began last Friday night. Our family events
unfolded like this:
We took care of two of our granddaughters while their mom, dad (our son) and brothers,
(our two grandsons) went to a football game on Friday evening.
Our daughter, her husband and their two daughters (two more granddaughters) came
over to eat dinner and let the kids play. Their family went home at about 9:00pm.
Our granddaughters were picked up about 11:15 pm. The youngest is almost one and
a half, she was sound asleep. The oldest is seven and she was still watching Disney
movies! Their "Pa" my husband, was sound asleep also. Their "Nana" of course me,
was still awake cleaning and watching over my little ones.
The alarm goes off at 5:15 am, please hit snooze! No can do, we have to get up, and
get ready because we are headed to Houston to see our oldest son, his wife and our
other two granddaughters!
We arrived at about 3:00 pm because of a delay that I won't even go in to. All that
matters is we made it safely! We visited, caught up, went out to eat, and talked about
the big family vacation that is coming up in December! The girls are growing up too
fast! We head to the hotel that is only about 10 minutes away to get some sleep!
We kind of wake up about 7:00 am. My sweet husband goes to the breakfast area to
bring me a much needed cup of coffee! The phone rings at about 7:30 am, and the call
is from our six year old granddaughter. She politely asks if we will stop and pick
up some donuts on our way to their house, and then she tells me what she and our
eight year old granddaughter would like. I was told that our son and daughter-in-law
were cooking "a real" breakfast for us! We got ready, checked out of the hotel,
picked up donuts, and drove to our son's home! We were greeted with hugs, and
barking from the dogs. We sat down and had a wonderful breakfast with our family.
Then, my husband and son started working on the girls playhouse in the backyard.
After more visiting, and wishing we could stay longer, we loaded up to head home.
At 3:00 pm we were headed west, back home. We arrived home about 9:45 pm.
Thank you God, for the safe trip!
I will talk about the rest of the week in another post! My daughter and her family
are fixing to come over. My husband is on his way home, he's been helping our
son do some work on his house that they are trying to sale.
We have plenty of yummy left overs from Thanksgiving day, and I also made a big
batch of Chex Party Mix, it's that time of year!
Have a wonderful evening.
"Thank God the Father at all times for everything, in the name
of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Bye for now, Sharla
