Do both boys live nearby sweetgurl? coffenut...I'm glad you got some time with Christopher. I got to see the boys yesterday and some today too. Austin is getting so excited about Christmas. He's the 10 year old. He wants New Orleans Saints stuff to decorate his room. I got him two posters and a pennant and one that looks like a football helmet today to decorate his walls. I'm making him Saints valances for his room too. Plus going to see about ordering him a Saints fleece blanket or make him one. For the other grandson Davy..I am making him curtains too. He's into the movie Cars..and any kind of car actually..so we are gonna go with that theme in his room. I'm buying bedroom stuff this Christmas for them.

Yeah we always make sure he gets what he wishes forLol. we spoil him a bit .Lol he is so crazy about blue. We have blue dishes here for him. He won't drink out of anything but a blue cup.His play balls are blue. That's not all he also had to make sure we all have dishes and cups in our favorite color. So when he is here he sets the dinnertable and makes sure everyone gets their favorite color. I tell you it makes for a colorful dinner table.Lol
