Then, that night, Chris went to the movies with his cousin. She is one of my best friends, but I obviously can't go to the movies right now, so he went with her. While they were gone, Grace and I did some halloween crafts while Brentley was sleeping. We did ghost footprints, and I drew a pumpkin and let her paint it orange. She LOVES to paint!
The next day we went to Sami's birthday party. It was at a park, and Grace had a blast! I figured she would be trying to run off to play while Sami was opening presents and eating cake, but she waited patiently, and she was soooo excited when she finally got to go play.
***Editted to add: I just decided that I am doing gift baskets for the grandparents. Each grandparent will get a gift basket with a framed family Christmas picture of us, a dough ornament, a bead ornament, the marble magnets, and a hot chocolate mix cone (another neat idea I found). As I complete the crafts I will try to post directions and outcomes. And once I get the gift baskets together I will do a post about those as well. I know that this stuff may sound pricey, but it's really not. Especially compared to what we spent on each grandparent last year.
