My bride and I were up at 04:30am and had our morning coffee. Then she was off to the truck company at 05:30am.
Not much happening today yet, the kid's are all gone and it is quiet around here.
Adam got his birdhouse project finished with his Dad, he painted it Black & Gold for the University of MO Tigers. Here is a pic.
Nice job Adam.
Donna & the kid's got the cookie baking finished, she had two great helper's in Adam & Nicole, but brother Chris said he was to old for baking cookies, and that he would be a taster.
Some of the finished goodies.
After all the cleanup was done we said good bye to Chris and Nicole and then Donna & I took Adam home to Warrenton MO. We had already decided to stop on the way home at the Olive Garden for a nice dinner. Donna found a gift card I had received from the bus company for getting compliments on my driving. It must have sat on her dresser for over a year, but they took it and we got 25 dollars off so we had a great and inexpensive dinner, even with the two Sam Adam's Lagers that I had.
Dinner with Donna.
It has really been a great weekend of family fun, the madhouse of energy with the three kid's playing all weekend and the dog's joining in. There was the sound's of kid's laughing and a din probably no apartment would tolerate. And best of all everyone got along, no fighting or whining, the parents and grandparents all marveled at the way the whole weekend went. Maybe the Christmas spirit was spread around our place. Rigg's enjoyed his attention of being the birthday boy, Even Sadie let me hold her once for a very short time till she realized who was holding her.
Donna has to stop on the way home for one of her normal doctor's checks, and then I will try to have a supper of some sort ready and waiting for her.
Hope everyone out there is enjoying the spirit of getting ready for the holiday's, the days seem to be flying by.
Please, be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
