Well hello again! It has been an eventful week filled with snowstorms, horrible roads, some frugal fails, etc.. However, not all is gloom and doom. Remember my saying that I am always looking for those Silver Linings? The best one of the week was being able to have our grandson Steven spend the night midweek since his daycare is still shut down and his parents needed to be able to get back to work. Oh that was so much fun for me! He is simply a wonderful little guy and we both enjoyed each other's company. Now onto the frugal doings in no particular order since I again failed to keep track of them as they happened.
~Steven spent the night with us on Tuesday. G-pa brought him home after getting off work. We had cuddle time, stories were read and he fell asleep very quickly that night. He did wake up at 4 a.m., but went right back to sleep when I told him it was still nighttime and that it was not time to get up yet. He then slept until 8:30 a.m.! Wednesday morning found Steven and I here alone without Jeff who had to go to work. It was way too cold with the windchill to go outside so we found some fun things to do inside. We made cookies and we decorated them with sprinkles...so many sprinkles! LOL! He took some home with him to share with his parents later when they came to pick him up. We played a bible character memory game, which he was amazing at (it is a matching game that I had here and had found at a thrift store for .49 years ago), played with toys and he actually caught the elusive Midgy cat and was quite proud of himself for doing so. We cuddled up in Grammie's bed and he watched a construction vehicles video while Grammie got some much needed rest and then we played construction site later. Here are a few snippets of our conversations and my observations that I posted on Facebook, gosh I love this kid and he keeps me on my toes!:
Oh yes, life with a 4 year old...tells me he wants fruit gummies for dinner and that is what his parents let him have. LOL! Good try kiddo but Grammie knows better. He didn't want the chicken strips and French fries, so cereal it was! Breakfast was fruit cereal bars and cheese. He was really hungry. I think we will skip making a snowman because the winds are cold. Onto cookie making it is!
