I assumed today that I would be coming home to a child-free house as my parents were supposed to return my nephew to his parents today. He, however, had other plans. My mom told me that he called his mom on his play phone while they were driving to the store and said, "Grandma and I are going out, but we aren't going home! We are going to just go back to Grandma's house afterward." Naturally, no one around here can refuse that, so he is here with us another night. He has been having a blast. My dad just bought a new truck for his business, so he has been having lots of fun "helping" Grandpa get it ready to send up north. My mom defrosted the freezer today, so when I got home from work the two of us spent some time playing in the "snow." Don't make fun! This is Florida, and we take what we can get. He thought it was the best thing ever.
I couldn't seem to get any pictures of him where he didn't have red eyes. In this one he had just thrown a "snowball."
After he went to bed, I got some much needed work done on some top secret Christmas projects. I still have a long way to go before I'm ready for Christmas, but I am hopeful that I will get it all done. I'm going out with a friend tomorrow, so perhaps I'll be able to get a bit more of my shopping completed.
