Saturday, December 15, 2012
Its been a busy week!  Time to check the goals--

  1. 1 yoyo block--YES
  2. 4 Flannel Sheets for grandkids--YES
  3. 1 pillowcase--YES--2 pillowcases

The new flannel sheets for Asher and Mason are done, and Mason has two new pillowcases to match his sheets.  

Mason is spending the week with us--we've been very busy!

Mason is learning to sew!
Mason is old enough to have a needle and thread.  He's practicing making yoyos like Grandma.  We use LOTS of thread.

We went to see my sister Kathy the librarian.  Mason and Kathy picked out books to bring home, and did the story "Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly".

The weather was very warm and Mason and Ruby played in the snow while Grandma fixed a few outside Christmas lights.

Mason and I baked three double batches of cookies.  He unwrapped a whole package of chocolate kisses and only ate two!

We made Peanut Butter Blossoms, Chocolate Chip Pecan, and Cherry Nut Slice cookies.

You can find the recipe for Cherry Nut Slice cookies at Judy's blog.  They are now part of our holiday baking--thanks Judy!!

Saturday's forecast is rain, snow, and ice.  We're staying inside but hope the roads clear on Sunday so we can drive Mason home to Mankato.  His parents MISS him!!

You got a lot done this week.
Mason is looking so grown-up. His week with you has probably gone all too fast.

You got so much done and Mason is having a ball. You can tell from the smile on his face.

Mason has the biggest smile. Looks like he's having a great time with grandma. I can't wait until Lucas is old enough to start doing these kind of things. Lots of fun!
