Jumping Ben~!

Ben loves jumping on anything, whether it's tractor tires or these rocks.. He leaped from rock to rock and then started all over again.. It was so much fun to watch him...
        Today was a busy day of buying groceries at WalMart and then Aldi's.  Met Tracie at Walmart and we shopped together.. Then we went to the Golden Palace , Chinese restaurant and had lunch.. We had a great time talking about her interview she had with Dr. Johnson who is a chiropractor.. Tracie graduated from Massage Therapy School in August.. Dr. Johnson wants her to come to his office and do massages for his patients.. She was really excited about this offer.. She will start soon doing this.. She has a place where she gives massages already and this will give her a different place to do what she does best. She is really good at massaging and I feel so good when I get one..  So proud of her ~!  When I got home from town there was a truck here with two men.. They were putting gutters onto our house.. It only took them just a little bit to get this done.  They were quick~!   Maybe it will help when it rains now to take the water away from the house.. We have been needing this for quite some time..   Tomorrow the workers will be here to put the new windows on the porch and the new door.. Oh I can hardly wait.. It's going to look so nice out there.  Then the new flooring and ta da I can have this porch for a sitting room.  YEAH~! I'll have to take pictures...
    Taking care of Ben this evening.. Ben and Dave are in the living room having a tractor pull with the toy John Deere Tractors.. Lots of noise going on in the other room.  They are having fun~!  At supper time Ben has decided that the boys eat in the living room and the girls eat in the kitchen.. So I set up their trays and they had supper while watching Thomas the Train Video.. I actually loved it,,I had a nice quiet time eating my supper..
     It's almost time to take him home and get his bath and ready for bed..  We are going to play a game of Parcheesi before he finally goes to bed.  Tracie is giving a massage this evening and she will be home later to put him to bed.. It's picture day for him at school tomorrow so guess Tracie will have to pick out something for him to wear. He will probably want to wear his new Mario/Luigi shirt.   She bought new PJ's for him the other day.. He was so excited.  Of course they were Mario P.J.'s..
    The junco (birds) have arrived.. They are considered to be the first sign that winter is arriving when they come to the yard.. I was disappointed that the red wing Black birds showed up the other day.. A whole flock of them.. Yikes~! I thought I was rid of them and they went south.. Where did they come from.?  It's 43 degrees this evening and chilly outside.. We are suppose  to get a hard freeze tonight so everything in the morning will be shriveled up.  It's that time of year...
     Time to take Ben home,, Have a great evening and ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Don't you love hearing the "boys" playing with their tractors! My boys spend all day in the field with the real McCoy and then come home and play with the grandkids' toy tractors! Fun for all!

Sounds like a lot of fun in the living room. Glad Bennie is spending quality time with Papa Dee Dee. No Juncos here yet but I'm sure they will show up this week.

Makes me miss having little kids around the house. Thomas the Tank Engine was a favorite around here.

I absolutely love the picture...I have a little boy that would love to be out there with him jumping on all those rocks...or anything else they could find!
