At the big kid table!

Today when we got to daycare, all of the seats at the small table where Grace typically sits were taken.  Fortunately, she’s grown a lot lately and is now tall enough to sit at the bigger table without difficulty.  Here’s a taste of what’s to come, big girl!

Learning to give

Today at church, Grace selected a friend from the Angel tree, so that we can get presents and make Christmas for a child who may not have as many presents as our Gracie does.  We’re looking forward to picking out trucks and toy cars for a five-year-old boy, and Mama has already told Gracie that we have to buy him socks and underwear.  Gracie thinks this is a bad idea as she is quite opposed to both– taking both diapers and socks off at any opportunity.

Today was beautiful, so Grace and Mama went hiking with Mama’s friend Deb.  Grace pet a puppy, watched lots of ducks, ran up and down hills and had an all around great time. 🙂

NO! You can't go!

Grace has had several fun days with her cousin and Aunt and was disturbed to learn that today after 4:30 her playmates will be gone.  The Garner Robinsons all hope for safe travels and that Aunt Cathy & Cousin Mary Bedford come and visit again soon!

The girls!

Giving Thanks!

Here at the Robinson household we have so much to be thankful for!  Grace has enjoyed her day playing with Aunt Cathy & Cousin Mary Bedford!  She also enjoyed her sweet potato casserole and some turkey.  (She missed out on the butternut squash, dressing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, Waldorf salad, pumpkin cheesecake, cranberry stuff in a can and rolls).

After our lunch, Mary Bedford, Grace and Mama walked down the street to a little park like area in the neighborhood where they’ve recently put down some pebbles and Grace picked up the pebbles and dropped them and then sat down and spread them around and then threw a couple and had an all around great time with those pebbles.  She also walked across the street to try to visit a neighbor’s dog (with help, of course) and then said “Hi” and “Bye-bye” to our neighbor Roger & his wife.  All in all, it was a busy but good day.  Grace had so much fun that she turned in an hour early so that she could be well rested for tomorrow.

This past weekend, we were able to recruit Erin’s Dad to take some photos for our family Christmas card.  Emmy’s back yard is just lovely and we were able to take advantage of a splendid fall day!  While we won’t post the final choice, we can post the outtakes…

Who, me?

Daddy was playing hide-n-seek in this one…

Can I get down now?

Mama was  a bit distracted here…

Coloring with Sam

Gracie loves art time

This morning, Grace got to day care a little before breakfast and so had some time to color.  She loves coloring, but crayons tend to get broken because she’s very into drawing forceful little dots.  She does do some side to side artwork as well, but the dots are central.
