Cashing In

Tom and I gave out Gift Certificates for
Christmas Presents, to our four older 

It was for an overnight;
Dinner of their choice;
Movie of their choice;
Breakfast of their choice;
Plus lots of FUN!

First one to cash in on his certificate was,
 7yr. old Silas
The first thing he asked to do was to have,
Cinnamon Toast.

Silas loves Banjo!
He spent a lot of time with our dog.
Here he is with Papa, taking Banjo for a walk.

When it was lunch time, 
it was a hard decision to make.
[Do I eat in the restaurant, or back at home in the RV?]

Panda Express
was Silas' choice for lunch.

Silas choose to eat in the RV!
But the battery was dead. 
So we came inside.

But that didn't bother him.
This is one very happy boy!

After lunch Silas wanted to go to a park.
But it's not fun by yourself, so he
invited his older brother, Levi.

Then they came back for a few rounds of games.

After a fun afternoon,
we settled down for pizza and a movie.

When it was bedtime,
Silas choose the couch, along with Banjo.

Good morning!
Breakfast time!

Here is Silas making his breakfast.
Cinnamon Toast!

Some of the biggest grapes I've ever seen.
They looked like small watermelons.

This is one very happy boy!

He wanted to eat on the counter.
And of course we said yes.

The things you didn't see were all the hugs and kisses
that were handed out, back and forth.
Fun and cute conversations.
Facetime with mom, 
making sure she didn't miss him to much.

Our mission accomplished!
It was a great time for all of us.
 I don't know who had more fun, 
Tom & I or Silas. 

Love You Silas!

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."
