Grammy and a movie
















This is the 3rd year in a row that Grammy has invited us to see a movie early on a chilly saturday morning in Dec. and every year we've had such a great time. The first year we saw Alvin and the Chipmunks, last year we saw Bolt and this year we saw Planet 51. They have donuts and juice or coffee for us and then we sing some Christmas carols and then the movie starts. After the movie Grammy takes the "Fab 5" to eat and to make gingerbread houses and they also make some type of Christmas gift for the parents (that means me). The homemade presents are AWESOME, I love all things made by my children! One year they made us treasure boxes, one year a "let it snow watch us grow" measuring chart, and I think last year was a water bottle with pictures and artwork by our children! I wonder what this year will be???
While the kids are at Grammys house it gives Kevin and I some time to go out to eat and finish up any shopping that we need to get done without the kids around. Let me tell you we really need that time too, it's hard being a homeschool parent because you can't shop without your kids...they are basically with you 24/7!!

***fab 5 is the nickname for the Oklahoma grandkids***
