There’s a saying about it being the little things in life…well sometimes those little things are kids, as in grandkids :)
Not too long ago I had posted about my grandson having a day off of school.
He spent it with me ( HERE )
That grandson is in a different school district than the other three, who had their in-service day later on. They too spent their day here.
We started out with a movie and then moved on to baking cookies. Javis wanted to play a video game so it was just the girls and I. They shared measuring, mixing, and chopping duties. ( We were making chocolate chips + butterscotch chips + nuts cookies. )
It doesn’t get much better than having a fruit salad and cookies warm from the oven for a mid-morning snack…
Well…there ARE the beaters to lick :)
After lunch and cleaning up we headed off to let their dog out and play with him for awhile and go on to the local library. It is just up the block from their house. There the back room was set up for a boredom-buster day due to school being out.
There was a craft table set up to make St. Patrick necklaces with yarn, paper shamrocks and fruit loops, several tables with games and puzzles, and a Lego area set up. They have a Lego club that meets twice a month for an hour….Javis goes when he can and one of his creations is in the front foyer when you walk in.
He beat me at Trouble.
We ate cookies :)
Late afternoon when they left for home, snow was swirling around and I was happy to anticipate staying in for the cold weekend ahead and getting a little more quilting done, among other things.
Most of the cookies went into a container for their house ( ” because you love us” , Mya observed ) but I kept a dozen here to go into the freezer. You know…for energy :)
