Having Toby's mom here for the last couple of days has been a real treat. We have spent some fun time with the GGs. We spent some time shopping. We have spent too much time at Wal-Mart with me forgetting items for the Thanksgiving meal coming up. Last night the GGs came over for supper with Great-Gran and had a big time entertaining us. I had planned a "treasure hunt" since GBN1 has been interested in treasure maps lately. She has a map of the USA that she calls her treasure map. I thought it would be fun to make a map of places around here to keep her busy. I drew out clues and placed them around the house and out in the yard leading her from one place to the next to find "the treasure." It took her a minute to catch on, but once she did, she was so excited. The last clue was out in the tractor, and it was a picture of the mail box. GBN1 squealed, "The mailbox! We need the four-wheeler! Only three people can go." We managed to get four on the four-wheeler. At the mailbox, GBN1 found two Smarties candies. You would have thought she had found gold. I can't wait until we do the next treasure hunt! Grandbabies are such a treasure. (Jesse took photos, but I don't know if she will post them soon or not.)
I am headed to Mom's today to help cook pies and such. Have a blessed Thanksgiving with lots of good food and fellowship.
