A Bit of This and That.......

As we draw to the end of another month, it reinforces the notion that the older you get, the faster time flies! This week has been a great week. For starters, I was working close to home this week and was home every night! I never realized how wonderful it is to be home, until I took this job that keeps me traveling all over the southeast about 38 weeks out of the year! There's definitely something to be said for being able to relax at home...as opposed to sitting in a lonely hotel room, somewhere in a city where you don't know anyone....sniff...sniff!! Are you feeling sorry for me yet? LOL! We went to dinner with Traci and Jacob on Tuesday. Jacob will be four in December and he really enjoys calling Grandma on the phone. I got a voice mail on Tuesday from him telling me he wanted catfish for dinner at David's (a local catfish restaurant). The funny thing is, Butch and I had just decided Tuesday morning that we would go to David's for dinner that evening....then Jacob calls and asks about dinner at the same place! Of course we took them with us! We're still working on our "restaurant" voice. It's so cute when little ones believe that EVERYONE wants to be entertained by them! ...and another thought...it's much cuter now than it was when MY children were being loud in a restaurant! Wednesday night, we went out for barbeque with Matthew, Nichole, Allen, and Helen Grace. I'm not a big fan of this particular barbeque place, but everyone else is. Allen and Helen Grace were excited to see us. As we were finishing dinner, my daughter-in-law prepared two small dishes of banana pudding for each of the children. Helen Grace (at 2 1/2) seemed to be having a little trouble eating hers with just a big fork, so I asked her if she'd like for her Grandpa to help her (he was sitting right next to her). She said yes...so I moved her dish of banana pudding over toward Grandpa. She stood up in her chair (the kind that turn over easily) and I said to her...."Helen Grace, you need to pay attention to what you're doing, so Grandpa can help you with the banana pudding". She turns around..still standing in the chair and gently pats her Grandpa on the shoulder with her precious little grimy hand and says...."Grandpa, now pay attention.....okay?" I swear, that child just cracks me up! Since it's the end of the month, it's time again for another new kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I've finished four layouts, two bookmarks, and a card, using the Main Kit and the Mini-kit. Still have one more layout and a card to finish....so I'd better get back to work! Thanks for stopping by...leave me a comment...I'd LOVE to hear from you!
