Sam and Grace spent Sunday night with us, Jim and Millie went on an anniversary mini-trip.  So Grandpa took Sam fishing and I took Grace to Jo-Ann's to pick out pajama flannel for Christmas since it was 60% off.

We had to stop at Starbuck's for a little refreshment.

This is what Gracie picked out.  The scotties are hers, the black & red guitars are Isaac's, the footballs are Chris's, and the race cars are for Syd, Sam and Daniel.  Now take a look at the racecar flannel, and then look at the blankets below:

It's hard to see, but the bottom left blanket, Sam's, is the same racecar print!  That little boy is going to be so happy!

After a day of ice fishing, Sam dug into the little cooler Grandpa had filled with his food.  He ate just about everything in the cooler, then fell asleep with his hand in the cooler!
It was a good day, Mom and Dad had a great stay in Chico Hot Springs, and came home refreshed.  I had a little relapse of the flu and spent the rest of the night on the couch.  This stuff is mean and keeps trying to come back.  I've had one acupuncture treatment and will have another on Thursday, so I think I will eventually get over it.  I bought a cool vapor humidifier and run it 24/7 to counteract the dry, dry air here in the mountains.


  1. You are such a good Gramma -- one of my all time favorite memories is when we went to spend a weekend at my Grandmother's and my mother forgot to pack my pajamas. I was mortified at her suggestion I sleep in my underwear. My grandmother threw open her fabric stash and let me pick out a pretty pink flannel fabric and within a half an hour she'd sewn up a pair of pj's for me -- It was the dearest thing she ever did for me and I loved her for it.

  2. I've done just that. The little boys think they have to be like the big boys and just sleep in bottoms so I've whipped up bottoms in minutes for the kid who forgot his jammies. In fact, they kind of expect it now.

  3. I have always said you were a great Gramma!


I'm so happy to hear from you! I do moderate the comments before they post just in case...
