...and then there's this guy. This look also sums up his present opening experience. GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY GIFTS. We're working on the whole sharing thing and he's slowly learning! He opened one gift, two tractors from my Grandma M.E and was done for the day. He didn't want to open any more. Geeze kid, if we knew that before we got you all of this stuff! We convinced him to finish opening his gifts which included a Mr. Potato head, a Spiderman fishing pole (which can double as a sword) and some Matchbox airplanes. He carried his fishing pole into the kitchen twice proclaiming, "I'm going to grandpa's...see you later!" It was priceless.
Lonnie just got each other stocking stuffers and the t.v that was purchased with some art money a few months ago. I'm going to get to peruse through Lonnie's running catalog for new shoes and outdoor running gear. We were also VERY blessed to have some friends that had a brand new stainless steel dishwasher sitting in their basement....not being used. They generously gave it to us for free. I could hardly wait to get it home yesterday only to my dismay when we realized it was such a new model there would be some hiring of a handy man to help us. The wiring needs to be hooked up somehow and a new tube for the hot water. In our haste...okay, in my rushing Lonnie to put it in, I had him unhook the hot water (which was a very bad idea!) and that only ended in lots of water under the sink and no hot water until the dishwasher goes in. My bad. Needless to say, we are thrilled and thankful for such a blessing! Hopefully we can pay it forward to someone else!
