Kids, Grankids, and birthdays….

Today was a day in my household.  It was jammed pack and full of adventure.  I guess when you’re a Grandparent, and you have a VERY large house, your kids naturally want to have their kid’s birthday parties at YOUR house.

Today was Granbaby Brayden’s 3rd Birthday.  We got a call about a month ago that the kids wanted to have the party here.  Here is the little birthday boy who arrived at our house just full of smiles.

It was a pizza and cake party.  There were several family members present (ok, who am I kidding, it was all family).  We really did have a good time. 

When Brayden was asked what he wanted for his birthday, the only thing he told EVERYBODY, was he wanted a “piece of underwear”.  Ok, I am old but could someone please explain to me what a piece of underwear is?

We all sat around and ate pizza (YUM, it was good too, and the Electrician and I ate so much we ended up eating nachos for dinner)

Then it was time for Bray to open his presents, and man, was that lil kid excited.  His brother Cam-Man wanted to help too.  I’m not so sure though if he wanted to help or just check out the new loot. 

  Cam-Man scoped it out though….Although, when Brayden SCORED BIG time.  Cam-man just looked on.   Do you remember when you got your first wheels?  Getting a bike is a MAJOR event.  I can remember my first bike. (WOW that’s a lot of years ago)

This would be my house today, it got a little Rowdy….But the Electrician and I would not have it any other way.  Even if, I had to leave to go to the Nursing Home AND…..the Electrician pulled out the Vacume cleaner, cuz well….there were cake bits everywhere. However, the cake…uhm…that’s a story too…  BUT, with my daughters feeling’s in mind, I’m only going to say this…..The Electrician talked to the Fisher dude about Judge Judy….Love ya kid, and YOUR heart was in the right place….sorry peeps it is an inside joke…. I learned something with the other kid….To the College student….Love ya kiddo, hope you have fun in Florida and wish you could have been here.


Saturday at Camsgranny’s……

Hey y’all, this would be Brayden….He’s the top gun dude in the family.  Brayden is one of our many grandkids  (ok we have 4 but hey who’s counting?)… We just spent the afternoon and evening with this dude.   He came over and then promptly went down for a nap, cuz well…it was nap time and we have kinda gotten used to putting the kids to bed and having an Adult dinner.  (If that’s what you want to call it .)  hehehe…

This lil dude really REALLY likes, Mickey Mouse.  Apparently the thing this year is Rock Star Mickey, or so Brayden told me.  We found it on the computer and we watched a couple of video’s of “Rock Star Mickey”.  Hmmmmm  Santa, you might want to pay attention to this one.  The funniest thing tho…he whispered to Papa that he REALLY wanted this thing, and then yelled at Granny he REALLY wanted this thing.  For some funny reason, I think he WANTS THIS THING.    Hmmm… I’ll have to think about this.  Because a couple of months ago it was the Dancing Elmo that caught his attention, until he got it.  He still plays with it, but, I guess that Elmo has been replaced by Mickey.  In the words of  the Top Gun, Granny I really, really, really, REALLY want this.  Play it Again, play it again was heard numerous times for the video.

Then there is this one, life is good.  Cam-man, that is his name, his brother even calls him Cam-man.  This kid is just straight up full of life, not wanting to stop for NOTHING!  Make you laugh, not a problem, help everyone with giggles, not a problem.  For the first time, he had a problem with taking a nap at Granny’s house.  Uhm, I think that might be due to not having his favorite and best buddy…..

Yup, it’s his blankey, I refer to this child as Linus (there is no insult there, just truth.)  This kid carries it around ALWAYS and when I take him from his home it is always part of the luggage.   If he doesn’t have it then there is sure to be some sort of chaos to ensue.  I have a blankey that is sorta like the one he cherishes but ya know what, it’s not his blankey and he knows when he is being fooled.

Today was a really good day, it was spent with the kids and grandkids, the kids MAY have been over shadowed by the grandkids but hey…sometimes that happens.

The Collage kid is home right now, and it was So good to see her….. I really love this kid altho, lately her and I have been fightin…..but….sometimes family does that but I want her to know that I love her with all my heart.  Part of today was finalizing our Thanksgiving day menu…hehehe… The nursing student and I  have split up the menu and that is so one person is not doing all the cooking.  She has her list and I have mine.  But the college student (not to be outdone) has volunteered to bring a cake to the festivities…  I’m kinda excited about what she is bringing.  She stated it is a better than sex cake…..   Uhm…ok…BRING it girlfriend….hehehe…
