One on One

Yesterday I had some one-on-one time with the Grandson (3 yrs). He is surrounded by all things girly all the time and sometimes just needs some time without girl stuff. (" Just you and me, Mimi? By ourselves? Not with the girls?!!!"... "That's right Buddy! Just you and me!")

We went to the library to check out books, all of HIS choosing (such power!).....

Then to Wal Mart for new Spiderman "Crocs"...
We sang silly songs in the car and stopped at McDonalds for french fries......

He was thrilled with our outing. You should have seen him strut back into the house with his McDonalds bag!

We got home in time for grandaughters #2 and #3 to come over for a sleepover with #4. (Mimi was the host of course...).

We made Jello Popcorn:

8 cups popped popcorn
1/4 cup butter
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 box (4 oz) JELLO any flavor

In small saucepan, melt butter and syrup together. Add sugar and jello. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Pour immediately over popcorn and toss to coat well. Spread popcorn onto 2 cookie sheets lined with foil or waxed paper. Bake at 300* for 10 minutes. Cool.

We played Wild Animal Bingo:

Then, once everyone was asleep, Mimi stayed up until 2:30 a.m. sewing APRONS!

It was a lovely, Mimi kind of day....but boy, do I need a nap today!!
