Cashing in - #4

This month has been full of  excitement.
Friday's have been busy with One-On-One, 
Full day of fun and
Overnights with our grandchildren.

The four oldest Grandchildren received 
Gift Certificates for Christmas, for an overnight and lots of fun.
They got to pick out what, where, and when, they wanted to do.
Who knew it would be such a HIT? !!!

This is Lulu!
She is 13 but soon to be 14 years old.
She is our first grandchild.

Lulu's request was to go shopping all day (๐Ÿ˜Š).

For lunch she choose Chic-fil-A.
It was a cold and rainy day and the restaurant was closed for dining in.

But that didn't stop US!
Tom surprised Lulu by meetings us there, with our RV!
We set it up with a table clothe and flowers.

We went inside and ordered our meals....

and took it back for some fine
dining, inside the RV.

We were so cozy inside,
 while watching everyone ordering their lunch from the drive thru.

Then it was back to shopping!
(til I dropped)

Lulu loves a good salad, so for dinner we went to
a fancy grocery store that has a magnificent salad bar.

The dining room was open!!
 We all enjoyed another great meal.
Afterwards we picked out dessert from the Bakery.

Took our goodies home to enjoy while watching a movie.
Lulu's pick for a movie was 
Meet Me In St. Louie (Louie), 
with Judy Garland.

And what would the evening be without a game of 
cards or two?

Saturday morning, Lulu cuddled up 
with Banjo on the couch.

Lulu is now learning guitar,
 on top of knowing how to play violin and piano.
Plus, she singing!

Lulu smiles all the time! What a happy girl!

I'm a bit sad that this month is over.
Having laughter, talking, and just more busyness,
 was such a blessing!

I know what our grandkids will get for Christmas next year!!!


"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called, according to his purpose." 

Romans 8:28



  1. Wonderful gift to your Grands. Wonderful.

  2. All of the grocery stores in my area have closed their salad bars. You were lucky.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful time! You came up with a great idea with those coupons. And I can't believe Lulu is 13 already. I remember when she was born!

  4. What a lovely!

    So nice to read about the fun and creative ways you celebrate with the grand-blessings! That sounds so cozy!

    Oh what a great movie choice and very fitting for a young lady too. : )

    God bless you and that great family. You really pour your heart out into that family I can see that. What a blessing!

  5. Hi Christine!
