Having some grandkid time...

Okay, I know it has been awhile since I last posted... sorry... I am guilty of just READING blogs and not tending to my own... I've smacked my own hands, and I know that makes you feel somewhat better!

Today I drove up to get two of the grands so they could spend a couple of days with us. Mommy is having a surgical procedure, and so they have come to hang with me while she gets a little rest. They were so excited when I got there... it was so cute. I walked in the door and they both said, "Let's go!" Yeah, I didn't think that I was going to get to tell anyone else hello, or even have time to pray for our daughter before we left!

As soon as we hit the road, they were excited to see so many semis on the roadway. Immediately Kailyn said, "Nanny, if you do your hands like this, the semi driver will blow his horn at you..." And up went their little arms, fists clinched and making the motion... oh, don't tell me you don't know that motion... I'm sure you've done it a few times yourself. And low and behold, the 1st guy they ask... he toots his horn at them. They giggled with delight and proceeded to "make the motion" at the next three semi driver's in front of him... none of which obliged. Looking ahead, I told them that just maybe they needed to take a break from that activity... there were HUNDREDS of semis ahead of us... seriously!!!!

So they decided to ask me about a million questions instead... all of which I had an answer for... even if I had to make one up... hey... they are 5 and 3... can they prove me wrong??? I think not... and at the end of the question and answer session, we hit McDonald's for a couple of Happy Meals and some quality time on the play equipment. Their little legs must have made 20 or more trips up that thing. I was getting tired just watching them!

And from there, we hit the library, where they each got to choose a movie... which they thought was pretty awesome.

Right now, they are taking a nap in preparation for Michael's arrival home from school... they are so excited to see him, and he has been chomping at the bit for them to get here. So for now, I'm gonna enjoy the calm before the storm that occurs when the kids are here!!!

I cant believe Michael even agreed to go to school knowing they were coming!!!

I love talking with youngesters like that because I can make up some AWESOME answers.. & they believe it, which makes it even more fun... to pull people in my make believe magical world! :)

Isnt the "Horn Blowing" motion part of official sign language? I think it could be :)
