Jimmy is my hero. He helped get an airline ticket to St George for Tralee's baptism. We were worried about the flights between Denver and St George because I only had 30 minutes to transfer. All worked out. It was great being in St George while Avon, Ohio had blizzard conditions. To make matters more difficult for my hubby, he was not feeling all that well and we were taking care of Lucy (neighbor's dog). Jim is better now and I am shouldering more of Miss Lucy's requirements.
I arrived about 1 pm Friday and Jim J was working in Las Vegas. Leslie picked up a fantastic Thai Soup and Entree for dinner that night. I got started organizing Leslie's Pantry, which was one of her requests. We also got her laundry caught up. She wanted help organizing Tralee's room, but I did not make much progress with that.
My Grandchildren are so adorable. We had a LOT of fun together. We read from the Friend, worked in their activity books, played on the computer, watched Maleficent. Leslie and I taught Tralee to play Monopoly and she beat our butts!!!! I learned something from her and her dad. Once he came home and the two of them played together, whatever they decided they needed to shake on the dice happened about 85% of the time. I learned that you have to set goals, know what you are reaching for ahead of time and you will have a much better chance of arriving at your destination.
Monday Leslie allowed the children to miss school so they could spend time with their Dad. It was his first whole day home after more than a week. They would also be able to see Grandma Charlene off at the airport. We went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Then we drove to Dixie Point and did a little scouting around. What beautiful country.
We did a little shopping on Saturday after Tralee's baptism. I hoped to find a couple cute outfits for the new baby and a maternity outfit for Leslie, but instead we found some cute things for Hunter and Tralee. They picked them out. Hunter was very sure about what he wanted and put it on as soon as we got home. He wore the nice warm fuzzy PJ's for two days straight.
