It's been a long day for me. I pulled my back out while making a birthday dinner for my grandson. But I am sitting here with the heating pad blogging for you guys because when I promise to blog every day, I plan to keep that promise even if it is a short blog post. I will go to bed and lay down when I am done.
My grandson will be 6 years old in a couple of days. He has had a great birthday weekend. I gave my son and DIL an 8 person tent for Christmas. They set it up in their living room and my grandson had his friends over last night for dinner, a sleepover, and breakfast. They slept in the tent last night and finally went to sleep before midnight. Dinner was make your own personal pizza. The boys loved it. Then they did some fishing for prizes with gummy worms. This morning they all had Lucky Charms for breakfast- my grandsons choice. My son and DIL do not let him have sugar unless he is at my house but if he is given a choice on a special occasion, he will pick the sugary cereal.
After his friends left, they drove out here to have a birthday dinner. I was happy they could make it since it has been snowing here all day. I cooked a spiral sliced ham, sliced pineapple, sweet potatoes, corn, broccoli, and macaroni and cheese. Actually Hubby made the mac and cheese in the pressure cooker last night. I just heated it. And I made the birthday cake you see pictured. They are all of his favorite foods so he ate well. He loved our gifts. He was given 3 games and the beginning book of two different chapter books. I told him when he is done, I will give him two more. But his favorite gift was the Matchbox Elite Rescue Strike Hawk Chopper which he never put down except to play one game. I would say he had a very nice day.
I was also up at the crack of dawn this morning because I couldn't sleep. So I was at Rite Aid when the doors opened this morning getting the 4 bags of Pamper Swaddlers that were on the deal I saw
I have a baby shower to go to that has an optional diaper raffle. Since this was such a great deal, I decided to participate in it. We were asked to get any size except newborn.
This morning I decided to try the coffee in the upper right hand corner. It was so good. I hope the others are too. This was a free sample from Walmart.
I am off to bed with the heating pad and a cup of coffee. Enjoy your evening. Don't forget to watch Downton Abbey.
