With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Weekend with the Boys

Weekend with the Boys

They jumped in the leaves on Friday
They played football with Aunt Abbey in the afternoon
They snuggled Friday night
They helped blow and rake all those leaves Saturday morning
They hauled leaves to the curb
They dumped leaves and someone noticed a tree to climb
And climb he did
They ate the whole batch of Peanut Butter Spritz made from my friend, Lynn @Happier Than a Pig in Mud's recipe
They watched The Wizard of Oz Saturday evening
Noah and Pop-Pop poured casts of sharks
Noah painted and glazed his sharks
 They watched church service on-line Sunday morning because Pop-Pop's bones were aching from all the raking on Saturday as well as standing two hours watching soccer as FBC Mt. Laurel Campus beat FBC Haddonfield Campus in the Champion Tournament   :)
They tried on the spectacles worn by their Great-Pop-Pop when he was just their age about 85 years ago
And then they all went home.
The End!

I'm about to write a post about our youngest grandson's visit to help Papa with the leaves. Loved seeing your 'guys' and all the fun they had. Aren't they fun?

Church service online? That would be fantastic for nasty weather Sundays. Will have to suggest that for mine.
