Sunday Grateful: December 8, 2013… Salt Dough Ornaments and Grandkids

My Granddaughter opted to go Ice Skating with a friend instead of coming over last night…

I admit I was a little disappointed, but so understood…

She will be 12 in April… and growing up so fast…420895_159860900825330_1322778887_n

Friends are so important… at any age… so… when you get the opportunity… on a snowy day… to go ice skating…x12160352

That was a no brainer! k12118130

Fun was calling her name…

Carson… my Grandson… did come… which was great!

We are pretty good buddies …OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We like the same things… and have fun…

Off to Deal’s ( His favorite $1.00 store )…

He had brought along his saving’s bank with a couple of dollar bills and lots of quarters…k3604389

He had plans… and knew just how much he had to spend…

After leaving there… he said, “I’m really hungry!”… k13045020

I told him Chicken Nuggets… Fries or Pizza were in the freezer…

He would have chicken first… since it could be microwaved

He wanted something to eat soon!… and by the time he finished… the pizza would be ready…

As I said, “He is a planner!”…

TV is always fun… Me watching whatever he wants… “Jinxed” I think it was… Kinda cute…

We then put together the salt dough and cut out some Christmas Ornaments… Fast and easy…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Since the ornaments take 2 hours to bake and then have to cool…

We painted them this morning…

But, not until pancakes, sausage and bacon were cooked…k1868560

He got two of the ornaments ( Star and Gingerbread Boy)… finished before I told him it was shower time…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

He was getting picked up by Mom and Dad… to go to an Awards Ceremony for a Football Trophyk1845737

He was looking forward to that!

I finished up the painting project… and hung them on my hodge podge Christmas TreeOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This year there is definitely a variety of ornaments on it… but, quite cute too!… Old-fashioned in appearance…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Snow had fallen again today  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and a quietness seeped in after my little boy left…

Grandkids sure do bring happiness and joy to a home…

and I’m Grateful for them and the easy craft project!

…it’s coming in…

Gift…

I’m sitting here drinking a cup of warm apple cider  … I know… not officially Autumn  … but, we’ve had a few cool evenings… and it just feels like “it’s coming in” as people say… It seems …

The air changes…

The wind blows…

Trees drop a few leaves…

Fire burns bright…

As I make the cider… the smells of cinnamonapples and other spices fill the air… I feel that urge for change… and it will be here before we know it…

Cooking soups…

Covering up…

Hot drinks simmering…

Staying inside more…

We begin to see the days getting shorter… and the mornings stay darker… We start preparing for the colder weather

Stacking cut wood…

Checking on heat…

Sealing up cracks…

Drawing the blinds…

We begin to do more… reading , watching TV , playing cards or board gamesBaking comes to mind… Outside fun put on holdWinter sports taking their place…

Ice Skating on ponds…

Sledding down hills…

Roasting marshmallows…

Gloves and scarves…

We are getting ready for those shorter, but… colder… days…

Winter is near!
