Here is Benny jumping on his trampoline. He loves jumping and it's so good for him.. Gets all that extra energy that is stored up and released.. I brought him a bar of soap from the hotel we stayed in couple weeks ago. He was smelling it and holding it out for me to smell.. When he took his bath later he kept saying "Mm this smells good".. Silly boy. He can really jump high on this thing..
Got my mittens all finished and Ben had them on with his play microphone. IT plays songs and he was dancing on his trampoline and singing.. HE wants me to make him a pair of slippers and mittens. So I have them finished to give to him later today. He has a red coat so I made them red. These mittens are not hard to make and are actually fun knitting them. The slippers are so easy.. Infact it was the first project I made when I was 9 years old.. Knitting these slippers helped me earn my sewing badge for Girl Scouts. They were quite a struggle when I was 9 and I needed help lots of times from my Mom..
My birthday was yesterday ~ I am now officially 67 yrs. old.. I always tell people that I'm 1/2 way to 134 ... makes them do the math.. Dave and I went out for breakfast and then we went to the movie "The Kings Speech".. Oh that is a good movie.. It's a true story which I like and it's about Queen Elizabeth's father.. There are lots of people that stuttered, Moses, Winston Churchill, Ed Vaughn, he went to school with me. At our last class reunion, I got to see Ed and he doesn't stutter anymore. My friend Phyllis's husband Richard ~ we called him Ole.. he stuttered badly but when he would tell you how much he loved God and he would talk about Jesus he would not stutter one time. I always thought that was amazing.. Stuttering would be so hard..
There for awhile Tracie and I thought Ben was going to be a stutter-er.. When he talked he kept repeating over and over and over the first word in his sentence.. I-I-I-I-....... We just let him do that and didn't hurry him to finish his sentence and now he has learned to put words together and he talks so much better. Ben didn't learn how to talk until he was almost 4..
It's snowing this morning and it looks so beautiful ~! I hate to say this because there are so many people anti-snow..but I do like the snow and winter. Makes one appreciate when it does warm up and you can see signs of Spring. The birds are grazing at the feeders this morning they must be very hungry or something's up.. The birds are a good sign that a storm must be coming or we are going to get lots of snow.. Either way I'll enjoy whatever the day brings..
Getting ready to go to church this morning and then this evening go to my friends house for the Super Bowl game.. Some of the people that come watch the game and the rest of us play games.. Apples to Apples is always a fun game to play.
Tracie and I made root beer floats.. He has never had one before and as you can see on his face he thought it was yummy. He has a frosty mustache , cute... He is quite a boy and such a joy in my heart to be with.
One grandchild out of 7 that live close to me that I can enjoy..
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! Ta Ta For Now ~ from Iowa... IT's 22 degrees and a lovely snowy day...
