Sunday Grateful: November 10, 2013… Grandkids Inspiration!

k11365675As I said in a previous blog… putting up the Christmas Tree had priority over leaf raking Saturday… k10972180

But, when the Grandkids came over… they decided they wanted to rake leaves… Actually use the leaf blowerbc_gardener_c

They did pretty good… for a beginning…

Of course playing with the soccer ball and jumping in the piles of leaves they created… became more fun than raking…k9765394

I started a fire in the fire pit… and had help placing small logs and twigs in it…

The fire felt good with the cooler day and evening…

We all were outside for quite a few hours…

and finally decided food, drink and a movie sounded good…

They had already watched Chevy Chase in “A Christmas Vacation”51qWq0xjLCL__SX215_ and a Scooby Doo Christmas Cartoon…51Y8l1t9QVL__SX215_

and as soon as “The Muppet‘s Christmas Carol” 61YxxoytAEL__SX215_ was started Kennedy with her blanket and pillow fell fast asleep…

Carson continued to watch the movie and laughed out loud at parts of the show…

What a wonderful sound Grandkids giggling… eating popcorn  027d8219and snuggling by the lit Christmas Tree…

Their parents had went Christmas shopping  k11703541… and seemed to have had some luck… when they returned…

Brian sat back and commented how cozy it was… with the lights shining… warm… and all of us just sitting… talking… laughing…

I’m sure there will be several more shopping days… and I love having the kids over…

They got our thoughts running to getting those leaves raked

So, the last two days we have been raking… blowing… dragging… those pretty leaves we all had admired on the trees… but, not so much now falling to the ground…

The piles kept growing…

Even after raking… the leaves continued to fall…

The sun shone brightly through the leaves that are still hanging on…

Not too many left…

They are all gone now…

I have to admit… I’m a little sorea twinge in my back nri0230… and “tired to the bone” k13556594 as they say…

Sleep will feel good…

I’m grateful for the Grandkids for inspiring us to get working on the leaf clean up…

and I wonder what they will inspire me to do next!Christmas-Cookies-Cutters
