Thursday was a happy day for the quads and their granddad!
They have been celebrating Dr. Seuss month and Amber, being the awesome mom she is, made them these great t shirts in the wee hours of Thursday morning to wear to school that day!
Guess who was the Mystery Reader???
Granddad!!! It really WAS a surprise and I appreciate the teacher taking these great photos!
They all closed their eyes as the reader came in and took his place.
This was when they opened their eyes!
And all four headed straight for their granddad!!
I love this photo sequence!
They got to him!!
And this is one happy Granddad!!!
Now Louis Dean is reading to them.
And since Louis Dean is such an amazing man - he WROTE the book he is reading just a few weeks ago. He titled it, 'The Search for the Greatest Thing in the World.'
It was a success!!!!
Amber thinks it is worthy of being published and, since she is a professional writer, this is high praise indeed!
As Louis Dean was driving home from Dallas, I was on my way over there!
Amber was in need of my Rainbow vacuum cleaner and carpet shampooer.
I was all too happy to take it to her since I haven't seen the kids since last Saturday.
Harrison was the star of the afternoon!
He was showing off his hula hoop skills!
Not only can he keep that hula hoop spinning - he can add an additional one on his arm!!
(Sorry my video wouldn't upload! Maybe tomorrow!)
While his mama was cooking dinner - to which I had been invited - Harrison and I entertained ourselves with my iPhone and my PIP app.
I think the quads have advanced palates for their young age!
Salmon is one of their favorite meals! This whole platter was full of salmon!
By the end of the meal - it was ALL gone!!
After reading the comments on my last blog post, I stopped at Aldi to pick up some organic apple cider vinegar to make a 'cocktail' using ACV, honey and some cold water.
Thank you to the dear reader who recommended this to improve Louis Dean's kidney functions.
Back in the 80's, I drank this every morning. My friend, Gram, advised us to take this 3 times a day and that's just exactly what we are doing!
While Louis Dean is not a big fan, he IS doing it!!
Update on Summer - Home Health Care came today for an assessment and she is hanging in there. Off the super strong pain meds - which were making her jittery and shaky - and on to milder ones trying to find the right combination that will work for her. She is recovering well from the back surgery but still dealing with the extremely painful piriformis which is in BOTH sides of her hips. She is the best patient in the world but my mother's heart continues to ache as I to watch her deal with all this pain.Thank you, everyone, for all the prayers for her!
Our Friday Night Movie was The Hunt for Red October!
I read the book in 1984.....
and saw the movie in 1990.
It was good then and it was just as exciting tonight!
