Surprise Grady!

Yesterday we took a day trip to the Children's Museum at Indianapolis. It was well worth the trip. We were there looking at dinosaurs alone for 2 and a half hours before we ever looked at the clock. I would reccommend a visit to anyone with curious kids.

I held out one little piece of info from Grady about the museum. They recently put the Bumblebee Transformer in the Welcome area. As soon as you came in, you not only saw two giant dinosaurs peeking in the roof, you saw one of the 'stars' of the Transformer movies on a rotating platform. It's size was something else! Of course, my little man was left open-mouth stunned!

I would add more pictures, but for some reason I cannot get pictures to upload on Blogger very quickly. If you have a free day and a kid that would love to see all that this place has to offer, I would say GO!! Maybe a weekday though, the place was packed on Sunday!

Holy Icicles!!

What a storm we have rode out in the last 24+ hours!!!

We lost electricity about 7 pm on Tuesday and didn't get it back until 430 am today, Wednesday. Grady got his wish to be able to camp out in the garage. Not so pleasant for Momma, but Thank GOD for our wood stove out there. Otherwise, we would have frozen in our house. The thermometer in the house read a crisp 57 degrees when we came back inside. Brrr!

Chris had bought some cots for he and Grady to take camping, so that was my luxury bed last night. Isaiah got to try out his playpen for the first time too. He did pretty well for his first camp out. I have to say that this is not how I had envisioned letting him go camping.

I hope and pray that anyone affected by this storm is safe and warm by now. This winter has been brutal. I am not going to say I am ready for spring, but I am ready for this winter weather to go somewhere else!

Going out on a Limb

I am trying something I have never done before. I signed up online for a quilt swap. The quilt is called an I-Spy. You've heard of the I-Spy books and game.....'I spy with my little eye....' This quilt is along the same lines. Printed fabrics sewn in any pattern you want. I chose some really fun fabrics to send and can't wait to see what ones I get in return!! To see some sample I-Spy quilts, click here.

  • Learned to ride his bike without training wheels
  • 'Graduated' Preschool
  • Started Kindergarten
  • Rode the big yellow school bus
  • Made new friends at school

  • Lost his first tooth
  • Learned to spell, read and write lots of words
  • Played Soccer

Grady, your mommy, daddy and baby brother love you to pieces!! I sure hope your next year is as exciting as the last one has been!!
