It would have been fun to give him a tutu...get it?
We sent him this photo as a teaser and made him wait until the afternoon of the 2nd, after he had arrived at the airport, after church was over, and after Brittany had a chance to join us. He was such a baby! He wanted to open his big present so badly!
My husband loves hot cocoa. He wants to marry hot cocoa he loves it so much! He had a "Cocoa Motion" cocoa maker that sadly broke this fall. He was so sad. We went deluxe this time!
Here he is checking out the spout and scheming the making of his first batch!
Valentine's Day was............
Lucas sent us a darling valentine with his thumbprints. It said "Thumb-body loves you!
As usual Roxie was eager to eat-- umm, help with the decorations.
Don't give me that "sorry" face young lady!
OK, it was really late when they were done but I did it!
Does Roxie lok a bit blurry here? It's because she was! She had her annual dental cleaning and was coming out of general anesthesia. She was very loopy and could hardly hold herself up! Notice her cute little hospital collar? Yeah, she wanted that thing off ASAP!
For the second year in a row I have been blessed to be able to travel with Dee and the BYU Swim & Dive Team to Los Angeles for the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships. Last year I wrote about my train journey and my four day visit to Diana and her family here.
This year I stayed in LA with Dee and My grandson came to me!
Later at the hotel he wanted to try on Pa's swim goggles.
Soon enough my kids arrived and we went on jolly adventures with the boy. He loves fireplaces, calling them "hhh-ot". There were two "Hots" in the hotel so he was busy going back and forth between them!
Outside "Hot". Inside "Hot".
We waited for the team to return from prelims around noon, then we spent the day together until Dee had to go back to the pool in the late afternoon for finals. Nick and Diana had a proposition for me. They had been given gift cards to have dinner at the Blue Bayou restaurant inside Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland. Since they hold resident passes they can go in at any time but didn't want to have their restless, squirmy son along. I don't blame them! It's kind of romantic in there! So...
I got to babysit my grandson! We had dinner together in the hotel room and played with anything and everything he could find! It was a busy, busy time. Did I mention that this kid has no hips? His pants are always coming down!
He had to try on the goggles again.
Next he helped Gramma crochet while we watched some cartoons.
It was getting to be Sleepy Time but the boy would not slow down, so we put on our shoes, and our pants of course, and took a walk.We explored every nook and cranny, every spotlight and flower,
Pretty soon Pa came "home" from the night's swims and the boys watched some Dumbo together. Lucas is really into elephants right now.
Next time I post I'll share all about the conference meet with you! We had some great swims!
