Some time last week, Mrs. Nurse Boy posted about having hot chocolate with her family (one of my favorite blogs!) and it started a craving in me, sooooo I gave in and made some for me and Ed and what better time than on a cold winter's night, hm? It was delish! And I made it with REAL cocoa and cooked it on the stove and all! :-)
Is it just me or were there ALOT of participants in the Random Dozen this week? Not that I'm complainin'! :-) It's just that I had alot of new visitors to my blog and I've met some new friends and all and I love their blogs!
And let me just give a shout out to Linda who is so faithful to do this meme every week! I've done other memes but kind of faded out on them after awhile but not this one, for some reason, and I am so proud of myself AND glad that I haven't for the reason that I put at the beginning this paragraph! :-)
One of the bloggers I've met is Kara at Kara with a K. Her writing is so refreshing and honest and she has such a sincere love for the Lord!
ANDDDD.....remember I told you HERE about Jaylon mastering climbing over his rocking toy to gain access to ME in the bathroom?
Wellll.....here is a picture of him clinging to the gate that we now put up in the bedroom doorway.
He looks so pitiful! :-(
BUT, I didn't give in! I finished what I had to do and returned to the kitchen and scooped him up and loved and kissed on him! :-) That's what grandmas do best!
AND here are a couple of pictures of Jaylon all buckled in ready to go to the library yesterday! :-)
I've read to him since he was only about 4 or 5 months old and he loves his "bookies". :-) He has a little Winnie the Pooh bookbag that our pastor's wife gave him. We keep his "little bookies" in there and each day, after lunch, we get them out to read and he gets sooo excited!!! :-)
Then we sing songs and do hand movements to them, too, like Itsy Bitsy Spider, Deep and Wide, Ten Little Indian Boys...just to name a few.
Oh, and one last thing about the grandson....well, for THIS blogpost, that is, 'cause you will definitely be seeing more pictures and reading more stories about him! :-)
Anywayyyyy.....I found him in the bathroom, bouncing up and down with his hands on the scales! He thinks it is so neat that the numbers move and bounce! :-)
Wish I found stepping on those things as entertaining as he does. *sigh* LOL
Ellie,the cat of the house, has had a very exciting winter. Yes, she has. This is her favorite activity:
Soaking up heat in front of the woodburner! :-)
AND while I'm at it, I might as well show you what Ed has been doing this winter, so he won't feel left out! :-)
Good night, everyone!! :-)
