Brandon had his birthday on the 20th, and we took him out for supper at his favorite restaurant where his god parents and their kids met us as well. He had some presents to open and we all had cake. Later next week he will have some friends over for a bit of a birthday party for him. He had a great night.
|Brandon's favorite TV show is "The Big Bang Theory"|
|A Big Bang Snuggie for his movie nights|
|Besides the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" book series, Brandon's fav reads are Goosebumps books.|
|Harry Potter mug and a Harry Potter cookbook|
We then also said goodbye to George, as we went to Outlook on the weekend for an early Christmas and couldn't take him with us. He went back to the north pole with Santa on Christmas Eve and won't return until next December. He had a few more tricks up his sleeve before he left though:
|The kids were pumped to see some gifts from George; however, they only contained things the kids owned. Brandon got his iPod, Jacelyn got her doll, and Charlie got her dress shoes. Imagine their surprise that morning!|
|The morning we left we awoke to a snowball mess between The Gunman and George.|
Our Christmas in Outlook was alot of fun, with a scavenger hunt and other Christmas activities to keep the 5 grandkids busy indoors on such a bitterly cold weekend. Lots of laughs, lots of good food, and the kids all got spoiled.
|The kids all wanted to decorate grandpa up like a Christmas tree again like last year, so who were we to say no?|
|The coveted X Box was the only thing Brandon asked Santa for.|
|An iPod for Charlie|
|And a Snowboard, helmet and boots for Jacelyn|
|Tiny bunkbeds for her Calico Critters collection.|
|All Chuck wanted was a double baby stroller out of the Sears catalog. She must have circled that picture 20 times.|
