Thanks again for babysitting Dad!

Tonight we had a Christmas party for my Mom's YW. We worked all day on cleaning house and making treats so everything would be perfect {okay, you caught me, we squeezed some 'crafting' in there too}.
Anyway, Pop Pop was volunteered to take the kids off our hands during the party. I guess a trip to the 99 cent store got tacked on to the original itinerary that had only consisted of happy meals and McDonald's play land.
Yeah, so Dad pretty much thought it would be pretty hilarious to give Laine a Dora 'tramp stamp' {okay, I give up, it was hilarious} with the Dora tats courtesy of said 99 cent store.


Here's Laine with her 'reading glasses' {like Grandma?} picking out some Dora tats for everyone else to share in the fun. She later remarked of the evening:

'I'm not super Laine, I'm just Laine, only, I'm not Laine, I'm Dora'

Sounds kinda like her typical logic...

And that's Gabey showing me his 'gockit' -chocolate.

It was a pretty exciting night had by all if you were wondering.

you all know how I feel about TATS, but even I, had to laugh at this one. My my little Laine wanted rid of it once we all saw it so grandma did feel better after all!! Grandpa is the best!!

Ben, dont worry about a thing, I am on the job. If anyone who even looks like a Giacomo looks at Natalie I will kick his butt sideways. I will be like OJ looking for the real killer on this one, I will not rest until I find this Giacomo. Poppop.

What a cute grandpa! That is hilarious! Are you guys coming to Utah at all? We would love to see you.

Nicole said...

I'm so sad I missed you while you were in Utah! I took 2 weeks off and we went to New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. When will you come back?:)

Hi, I know this is a little weird. And sorry to do this over your blog. But hopefully you remember me from the ward and from Salon Bliss. But our lease is up and we are looking for a home in the ward to rent and I remembered that you guys are renting your home while you are away. And was wondering if it may be available. Bishop Wheeler has been great to let us stay in the ward. Just thought is can't hurt to ask, Thanks Nikki
