If you ask grady what he wants for Christmas, he will immediately tell you..."a kitchen!" I hope Santa will bring him one! He wants to "help" me in the kitchen. How much easier would it be for him to have his own and me to have my own!??

Here's a few pictures of the little "helper" assisting with creating rice krispie trees for his class Christmas party. Well, he actually did more "sampling" than "helping" I guess. But we had fun anyway.

Aunt Susan, do you need an assistant???

Thanks to Fisher Price... porcelain manger will be intact for the next few years... It's in its box in the attic. I found this great one made by Fisher Price all for Grady to explore! We set it up on a little side table in the living room so he can play with it and we can attempt to teach him the real meaning of Christmas. I was such a proud mama on Sunday when we picked him up from the nursery at church. The teacher told me that they had been talking about the Christmas story and that Grady was the only one in the class that knew who all of the "people" in the story were... Yayhoo for the Fisher Price Nativity set! :)

Jenny's Visit

Sad that these are the only pictures I took in a whole week of Jenny being here to visit! Even more sad that she won't be here for Christmas!!!

Grady misses you!!! He wants you to go to the movies with him. Tried to explain that Idaho is a bit too far for you to come to go to the movies! :)
