Random Thoughts and Updates...

Finally finding a minute to sit down and post a little.  I had a wonderful Valentine's weekend.  I know that is over a week ago, but where has the time gone.
My sweet hubby surprised me on Thursday the 12th with a bouquet of red roses.  They were beautiful.

Then on Friday evening my daughter and her kids came in for the weekend.  We had such a good time.  We ate supper then just chilled.  I had a bowl of plain M&M's on my coffee table and Silas James thought that was something because he could reach them.  We enjoyed the night just relaxing.

Saturday morning I fixed breakfast then the kids and I headed off to town. Eden Jade had never seen a big mall so we thought she needed to experience that.  With cold weather there is not a lot that you can do, needless to say the mall was wall to wall people.  Stan and I decided we needed to eat at Lambert's.  Stan and Rocky met us at the mall and we rode down together to Ozark.  It is only about 15 minutes from Springfield. Have any of you ever been to Lambert's?  There are only three that I know of Ozark & Sikeston MO and Foley, AL.  The home of the thrown rolls. Click here for their website.  We got there early right around 3:30 and we still had to wait 1 1/2 hours, but it was well worth it.  The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is great.  The kids had such a good time!
They watched for awhile but when they got a chance they enjoyed catching the rolls too.  Unfortunately I did not get any pics.

Silas James did not find anything he did not like.

He was watching them catching the rolls.  I did not get a picture of him with his hands in the air.
He sure did enjoy it when he got one tho!
I wish I could post the videos Janice took of Eden and Silas catching theirs, but they will not work. After eating a big meal we took a detour to Bass Pro Shop.  The kids enjoyed that.

Eden loves elevators, Cain not so much. But she did talk Bubba into riding it while at Bass Pro.
We ended the weekend attending church services. Eden Jade sang for our congregation.  She does a really good job.  Has a wonderful voice to be so young.

Then we took a few pictures, unfortunately the one with Stan in it did not turn out. 

We ended the weekend with lunch at McDonald's.  Then they headed home to beat the weather coming in.  We had a wonderful weekend.  It was a very special Valentine's Day!  My grandkids are growing by leaps and bounds.  Cain Alan towers over me now and he is only in 8th grade.  Eden is growing up too, and Silas is so much fun.  He had such a good time just running through the house.  He is such a mess!  It sure was quiet after they left.
Thank you Jesus for a perfect weekend! And for safe travel for my kids!

A few days later we received these pictures from our great grandson, Ryan. Stan's grandson's little boy.  He is as cute as he can be and look at those beautiful blue eyes!

Nothing better than Grandchildren!
