We had a lovely holiday. My brother came down with his family and my sister came up from Florida. Everyone pitched in and we managed to get everything on the table. Five pies for 9 people, so we had a pretty solid pie to person ratio. My SIL wound together the red berries for a very pretty centerpiece. It'd be great for Christmas too.
One of my favorite parts of the weekend was visiting my mom's cousin Margaret. She has a small farm and the kids LOVED it. Grant is crazy about tractors. (I just love to hear him say excavator and mini-loader). So he was in heaven. In fact, he pretty much ignored the horse and dogs and just wanted to climb this bad boy the whole time.
Yes, he's got a bandit mask again. He did leave it home when he went to school this morning. But he did NOT leave his cape at home. Oh well. We can break him of that in Kindergarten.
Grant did leave the tractor for a quick snuggle with his sister on the hammock. But not for long.
