Monday night and Tuesday

Marcus always has to make his "famous" chili when grandma and grandpa come to visit!

On Tuesday morning grandpa held Sedric for a little, and he fell right asleep:

Then grandpa got to play with Ding Dong!

I spent the afternoon in the barn, cleaning the hay/straw on the floor and rearranging the layout so we could fit the tractor in for the winter. Dad and I found an old trike and he had the kids paint it up to be something really special! ;o)

Dad told the kids the story of when we lived in Albion and Joe wanted a bike to ride around with his friends, but the only bikes we had were pink Huffys. So dad told him that he could paint a bike any color he wanted. Joe did, and when his his friends all saw his "new" bike, they were so jealous! They all wanted a cool bike like Joe! And now ~we~ have a cool bike just like Uncle Joe.

  1. awwwww what a sweet story! The version I remember included lots of teasing that Joe was riding around in a GIRL BIKE! hahahha

    ps have I told you lately how much I LOVE your dining room table?

    1. thank you! We love our table too! We commissioned a friend (finish carpenter) to make it when we moved in 3 years ago. Seats 10 with no leaves, just what I wanted. :o)

  2. Love the pics with grandpa (grandma too) and the kids. I treasure the pictures I have of grandpa C and the boys.
