GranAnnie your squishing me~!

Ben came over yesterday evening. We played the WII for a little while and then he had supper.. His mom, Tracie came  after she was done working and she had  supper with us and he was so excited to see her.. I just love it when he runs to her and gives kisses/hugs and says "Mom I missed you"..
After supper Ben put a puzzle together. It was a 2 sided USA puzzle.. He loves puzzles.. Then we played Parcheesi game.. Oh he loves it when he lands on a space where our playing piece is and he sends you home.  He just laughs and laughs.. We had to play a short game this evening because he needed to get home and get ready for school for today... So the rules were whoever got one player piece to the home space you win... He was so excited~!  He loves winning.
       Before he left I read him a story on my bed and he was laying across my bed.. So I put my legs over him.. He squirmed and squirmed and we had a good time laughing.. He finally got out and then it was time for him to go home.. He said "GranAnnie ?"  Do you know who my favorite person is?  I said "No, Ben I don't".. He said "It's YOU GranAnnie,,,You are my favorite person ~!~! He gave me a big hug and kiss and off he went.. So sweet.. I love it when he comes here and we can play...
       My knee this morning is very stiff and hurts a lot~! Took a pain pill and got on my stationary bike and worked on the bend for 10 minutes.. Now it feels better and I have ice on top of the knee and bottom..  Now I need to work on getting the tendons and muscles behind the knee to stretch out so I can get my leg straight. So much work to do when one has total knee surgery.  TIme and Patience and I'll get it done and then everything will be fine.. No pain No gain.. So I'll keep at it just knowing at the end of the road I'll have a new knee and pain will be in the past...
    Nice and sunny this morning and just calm and beautiful~!  Saw 12 pheasants walk across the neighbors driveway to go into the field . 2 cock birds and the rest hens.. Very beautiful to watch them strutting in front of the girls..    Earlier this morning there was a big buck with a huge rack walked up our driveway stopped and smelled the air.. He was so magnificent to watch and then in a flash he was running with his white tail lifted and running through the field that we have next to our property.   IT's an amazing view from my window this morning.  God is so good..
Have a Tiggeriffic Day ~ ta ta for now from Iowa:)

He does sound cute. It's such a shame he and Pierce can't get together. Pierce is VERY into Mario right now, so I know they'd get along!

Sounds like you're doing things exactly right on your knee. Frustrating now, but you know it'll only get better when you face the hard stuff head on.

We finally have sun too. It has been raining here for days!

Wouldn't it be fun if we could have all our guys play together.

GO Ben!! Great fun that you all play board games together. Sweet moments you share with him. I can hear him growling, trying to wiggle loose from under you legs!~ hope that knee starts a fast recovery and you can spring into Spring! Love You MBFS!

Great pictures of Bennie. I'm glad he was able to spend some time with you and had fun playing board games. He will get you back on your feet in no time running after him. I can hear him laughing now......
