Merry Christmas!

So excited!

Checking out his new telescope from Auntie Crystie and Uncle Sead. He LOVES the moon and was really excited to be able to see it through the telescope.

Christmas Eve

Gramma and Papa Prince sent Grant a cool pirate ship! We decided that he could open it as his special Christmas Eve gift.


It came with a few pirates to man the ship.

It was almost big enough to hold Grant. We brought in a step stool for him to reach the top.

Thanks, Gramma and Papa! I love it!

Today's project was making glittery pinecones out of our treasures we found outside. It was lots of fun. Now my house sparkles...just not for the right reasons.

We tried our hands at gingerbread structures this year. It was a lot of fun, but I learned that I shouldn't go into the food decorating business. I have no patience for it. It's so much harder than it looks!


He learned this particular trick from his father. Moms don't come up with things quite like Dads do.

Driving Lessons

Grant loves to "drive" my car in and out of the garage. Nate let him help once and now Grant thinks it's his job. Any time I mention that I'm going to move my car, he goes and finds his shoes and is ready to roll. It's quite tricky steering with his "help" but he couldn't be happier.

I finally found a play shaving set for Grant so now he can safely shave with his dad. The only glitch was the shaving cream brush that came with the set. Grant rubs it on his face and says "face powder."

This is what I found the other night...
