The Weekend

A phone call on Saturday morning...

Me: hello?
Camron: Hello Gramma. I've been sooo wanting to come to your house.
Me: you have?
Camron:  Yep.
Me: well, I'll pick you up in 30 minutes and you can go to a ribbon cutting with me.

I work for the Chamber of Commerce. We have ribbon cuttings. But this one was more fun than most: WATER WARS!
A new water balloon slinging kinda place.
And since he was with me, he got to sling a water balloon.

Camron letting go.... of the water sling shot!

Then we hit the library, the dollar store, Burger King, the skateboard park (where he rides his bike), home to make rice krispie treats and then homemade pizza for dinner. Only pepperoni (he's 8, no artisan pizza's for him), watch some Goosebumps DVD's, (he begs for a ventriloquist doll with creepy eyes), then he scared to fall asleep, I lay down with him, we watch cartoons to take our minds off the Goosebumps shows. He shakes me and says "Gramma you're snoring".

ME? I don't snore. He must be mistaken. Ask Granddad..he LOVES to sleep with me. I don't snore. I must have had allergies.

We wake in the morning. We make waffles from scratch. We go to church, where he is asked to be an acolyte (candlelighter). I cringe. They are trusting him with fire?! FIRE! The altar is covered with wispy Easter things. And close by are paper butterflies the Sunday School class made.... (sigh) he does fine.
During Joys and Concerns he raises his hand for a prayer request (he's not sitting by me, so I have no means of intervening )
He requests prayers for his cousin whose concussion didn't mess up his brain too much.

He's excited for Church to be over, so he can go to the brunch (fellowship hour). His granddad arrives during the "brunch" of cookies and crackers and cheese and asks him if he wants to go to the motocross races. He says yes.
Off they go.

I am pooped.

I can't wait until I get a phone call from these guys saying they want to come to my house soooo badly!  ( I would drive 500 miles! to get them)
My other grandchildren!!  If only....if only.... they lived closer.





Our pizza.

Don't get all was all Chef Boy Ardee. But it was good.
Doesn't it look like a face? I love my new pizza stone.

Our morning waffles.

The waffles were good.  I will post about them tomorrow.  They  had corn starch in the recipe and it made them crispier than normal.  I like that texture in a waffle.

That sounds like SO much fun! You have adorable grandbabies. There should be a law that grandchildren always have to live close to Grandma!!

Oh my goodness that is the sweetest thing ever! How many was that? Did I count 8? No way. You are far too young for that! I can't wait till mine are a little older.

I love grandmas...wish my parents would move back. I know my kiddos are missing them.
