We Interrupt Getting Dressed...

Thursday night is Grandma Jan and Locklan night...

He comes to spend the night!

Last Thursday was even more exciting...

Henry was coming to spend the day!

We were so excited that when Tony came in with Henry

Locklan didn't care that he was in his underwear...




He just wanted to talk to Henry!

He sang to him...
Rocked his cradle...

And the thing that made my heart soar...


They held hands!
 
~sigh~
 
I'm having the time of my life!

Two whole months!

Mindy went back to work on Monday.
 She's a kindergarten teacher and the timing was right,
the end of her maternity leave coincided with the beinning of Christmas break!

I'm spending half days with Henry which means...





Photo Shoot!
He's such a sweet little guy and I love spending time with him...

But yesterday was an extra special day...

Not only did he have a doctor's appointment for his checkup...



It was his two month-a-versary!

He did wonderfully well, he's up to 9 pounds, 15 ounces...
That's impressive considering he started out two months ago at 4 pounds, 8 ounces!

He's such a cuddle bug!

~sigh~

I love being a grandma!

Not All Grandmas are Great...

Last week, Locklan came to spend the night...

I love those times and try to make them special...

He's growing so quickly, it was time for new grandma-house pajamas...


He was pretty tickled with them!

The next day, we played with one of our favorite things,
those glass stones from the dollar store!

We make designs, we separate them into colors, 
we even count them...
Over the past few months, we've accumulated about 8 pounds of them...

How do I know?
Our latest project...


We weighed them on the kitchen scale!

Lunch time, Locklan showed off his chop stick ability...


He even figured out how to eat a peanut butter sandwich!


Later, Andy and Teagan picked us up and we went to visit my mom...


Teagan loves Grandma Toots as long as she can sit on Dad's lap!


Yesterday, Tony, Andy and Locklan went out to play with their RC trucks...


Mr K and I went sectional shopping...



But I couldn't make up my mind...

And since Mr K has had a hankering for German Food,
We headed for one of our favorites...


so he could chow down on Stuffed Kielbasa!

That should keep him happy for a while!

~soooooooo~

It's still sunny out there, 
Mr K announced he has a cold...

sooooooo I'm going shopping!

Time Flies!

Christmas Adam day, I stopped in Joanne Fabric to look for bargains...
and to say hi to old friends,
When what to my wondering eyes should appear...




I was too shocked to take many photos...

But in the same isle were Valentine Day and St. Patrick Day supplies too...

Nothing like adding the frenzy to the pre Christmas rush!

~sigh~

Ever wonder how you got so old?  I swear I was 40 a few months ago...

Then I shopped at Joanne Fabric and time just flew!

Happy New Year 2019!


Yesterday, on a whim, I decided to make French Dip sandwiches 
instead of the traditional pork and sauerkraut
I sent out a text to all the kids, 
an open invitation.

I talked to Tony, he said he thought they were planning a nice, quiet night at home...

Andy asked what's for dessert?

About 5:30, Tony, Mindy and Henry came through the door.  
Andy and family followed...
We had a house full!







They were delish...or so they said...
I'm Keto (for 2 years 13 days), so I didn't get to do the dippy...


Everyone had 2 or three of them!

After dinner, we played games with Locklan.

Afterwards, everyone left.

Mr K and I watched a little TV and at 9:45 he said...
Let's try to stay awake until 10!

~sigh~

The Cutest Thing!

Last Saturday, Tony and Mindy asked me to babysit!

Everyone knows what that means...

Photo session!


Isn't he just the cutest thing ever?

~sigh!

I love being a grandma!

Share!

Periodically, I replace the dog's beds...

A few weeks ago, I mentioned to Mr K that it was time...

And then I just plain forgot!

I was wandering through Ross Dress for Less

 (did I ever mention that I DO NOT LIKE that store?)

They did have one bed that was the right size, so I brought it home.

Usually, in the dead of winter, they much prefer blankets so they can snuggle
but they seemed to like the new bed.  

They took turns sleeping on it

for the most part...


Those darn dogs!
