A Little Late

I am running a little late in posting today! I guess I forget how much work a three year old boy can be!! Kendall and Landon are pretty self sufficient these days!

I have been sleeping with Elliott as he is still a little frightened to be in a strange bed all alone. So I have been going to bed at about nine pm and we both fall asleep pretty quickly!

Yesterday I had to run to Hobby Lobby for some DMC floss. I told Elliott if he was very good we would go to Target for a treat. Yes, Nana's are allowed to bribe the grands.

He was fascinated with that Santa Claus...if I were a very naughty Nana I could have used the Santa bribery. My mother always told us that Santa looked in the windows of the house around Christmas time to see if we were good. Let me tell you, that scared me to death. I would not look out any window in the house, sure that I would see Santa. And while I liked the toys he left I was not interested in one on one time with the jolly old elf.

As you can see, Elliott was a good boy at Hobby Lobby so he got some treats.

And finally...Landon arrived to play with Elliott.

I think Elliott even wore Landon out!!

Fun times come to an end and this afternoon we will take Elliott home to Mommy and Daddy, Margaret and Baylor.  And Nana can stay up until ten and sleep in her own bed with no little feet in the small of her back. ( and she will miss it just a bit!).

His treat looks very tasty! I know it will seem quiet around your home when he leaves! Have safe travel.

I had to giggle at the sleeping with Elliott. I remember my mother had to sleep with Paul Allen anytime he went to her house. Fun Fun Fun!
I would definitely be bribing.

What a cutie he is! But I'm sure you won't mind peace, quiet, and a later bedtime one bit. Have a safe trip as you return Elliott to his family!

He seems to be enjoying his treat. You are a good Nana!!

Looks like you are having fun!
I often have Alaina or Ruby in bed with me too, and while I never get good sleep, I wouldn't miss it!

Yikes, Arlene, I wouldn't want to think about Santa spying on me either. Super cute pictures of Elliot and Landon too. Sleep tight!

That is some cute sweetness! I loved going shopping with my boys when they were little. They are so interested in everything at that age! What a fun time you had!

Yes, the gk's can wear me out after a few hours, but it is a "good kind of tired"! Your boys are adorable. It's good they could entertain each other.

Aah sounds like so much fun to me. You are a wonderful Grandma and he will remember that when he gets older. I can still remember all the wonderful things my Grandma did with me. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Aww--such cuties! That photo of Elliott with his treats sure took me back as my boys always got popcorn and an icee if they were good while I shopped, too :)
