Favorite Gifts Part 1

Grant made us this gift for Grandparent's day at school. I absolutely love it. I love it because he took the time to make this and remembered many of the fun things we've done together. I love picturing the time that he spent with his mom putting it together. I love looking at it over and over again. Thanks Grant for such a treasured gift!

It's titled: "My ten favorite things about my grandparents. #1 Hiking.
#2 Making things with G-ma like Christmas stockings, cookies, and ginger bread houses. (Grant and Cole picked out some Christmas fabric from my stash. You know...the stuff that you don't like anymore that you don't mind using because you really just want it to leave your house in any way possible. The stockings were meant to be temporary because they forgot to bring their Christmas stockings with them. Much to Candice's dismay...those are the stockings the kids now want to use every year because they actually helped design and sew them. They sometimes call me G-ma because that is the name they assigned me when we play Nintendo or Wii games. They think it is hilarious when they call me that.)

#3 Building things with Grampa like a tree house and sand castles. (I loved how he spelled Grandpa phonetically.)
#4 Mini golfing and football...playing sports. We played a lot of boccie ball, flag football, whiffle ball, catch, soccer, croquet, tag, kickball, etc.

#5 Sledding. We usually sled in the park but decided to make a big ramp off our back deck. We had a blast playing in the snow and building snow forts and snowmen. So much fun! Here is Steph's post about it.
#6 Crawdad hunting, fishing, and swimming at my parent's cabin at Lake Tahoe. (We also hit the garage sales when we go there. You almost always find great treasures. It is a "must" on my list of things to do at Lake Tahoe. Last summer I found a snowboarder who was sponsored by a big name company and was selling his coats and pants. He had a ton of them and they were either brand new or hardly worn for great prices. He was the same size as Eli so Eli has new snow gear to wear this year.)
#7 Road trip vacations...Williamsburg, Disney World, Lake Tahoe. We've had some other road trips with them but these are the ones Grant listed.
#8 My grama makes good costumes. She made me a cloak and belt. Here Grant is as Luke Skywalker and me as Madame Hooch from Harry Potter. (I'm not sure why this picture wouldn't post in the right direction...I tried.)

#9 "We went letter boxing together. It was fun." Letter boxing really is pretty fun. It's taken us to places we've never been before. It's like going on a treasure hunt. You are never too old for that. Just google letter boxing and you'll probably find some in your area.
#10 "They love me very much." What's not to love? Grandchildren are the best!

I love having pictures to capture all the memories. Good thing all my daughters are good about taking pictures. A picture really is..."worth a thousand words."
Tomorrow I'll post some more favorites.
