Grandchildren are Tiggeriffic~!

I don't know why I can't get my pictures in the right order.. But I have no time to change them.. Kelly was so good at getting Ben to go to bed at night.. His mom has puzzles downloaded on her phone and he is putting puzzles together.. He loves puzzles.. Kelly was so good with Ben and she played with him and kept him busy while we got the pies made ~ turkey cooked ~ and all the other thanksgiving food that is traditional for the day.

Jodie, my daughter was washing all the dishes and Ben was right in there helping dry the dishes. Jodie is like me,,I usually try to have all the dishes I used cooking a meal washed and put away before we eat the meal. Emily helped me make the pumpkin pie... She loves to cook and get her hands in the dough.. She is 9 years old. She is such a sweetheart..
Kelly gave Ben a bubble bath.. He loved it.. This tub has a dial you push and it jets out the water ~ first time Ben wasn't sure what was happening and he jumped out of the tub.. After he found out how much fun it was , he climbed back in and played and played. He loves his bath..

While we were cooking dinner, Kelly had Ben in the basement where all the Halloween costumes are and he came up with this hat on his head.. Our little jester... He was laughing and was dancing all over the kitchen.. Silly boy~!

Here is Emily and Sophia age 5.. Emily was showing off the pumpkin pie she helped me make... The girls actually mixed up the pumpkin and had it ready to put in the crust. We had a lot of fun getting the meal ready and on the table at 5..p.m. We used the electric roasting pan to cook the turkey.. It is so wonderful using this because it frees up the oven for baking the other things for the meal.
This evening which is Tuesday~ I picked up Ben at daycare. He was so happy to see me, he ran into my arms.. I love it when he does this... I drove him to his Mom's house ... We played Super Nintendo for awhile and then we had supper.. Tracie didn't have to go to school tonight. She has a sinus infection and had gone to the Dr. today.. He gave her some medicine ~ hopefully this will make her feel better. We had supper and she layed down for awhile. Ben and I played with his Thomas the Trains... I found some dinosaurs in one of his bins and I set them on the track.. We had fun running them over.. I love it when he belly laughs... Of course Gordon fell over when he hit one of the dinosaurs and Thomas had to come to the rescue and get Gordon back on the track.. We also traced around shapes on paper and cut them out with scissors. Then we pasted them onto construction paper. He loves using paste.. I bought some glue dots...Has anyone tried these ? He loves them and it sure skips all the mess from the glue stick.. We had a busy evening and at 8 p.m. he took his bath ,,I read him 3 books and off to bed he went.. Didn't take long and he was breathing hard.. I slipped Nibbles out of his arms and got a needle and thread and sewed up his neck.. I noticed earlier in the evening that Nibbles had a big tear on top of his neck.. Got that all done and slipped Nibbles back into his arms under the covers.. You have to make sure Nibbles is covered..Ben said he gets cold . Nightly Noodles my sweet boy...
Ta Ta For Now...time for GranAnnie to go to bed..

Annie, I'm going to have to remember the glue dots for next year when the kids come down. Those glue sticks were yucky!...:)JP

Cutie pies and you are teaching some life skills that will follow them. You were talking about getting pictures in order, somehow I lost my blog background today when I was changing the header picture. It's all magic anyway!!!

Your family sounds wonderful.
