Best day EVER!

I picked my grandson up early in the morning...we hung out all day together! We did art together, and he was enthralled with all of my different scissors that have decorative cuts! I got out my construction paper, and stickers, glue stick...and he was having a blast for at least an hour straight (and even went back for more later in the day)! A side of him I had not seen yet! I think he has a large bit of artist in him!


After he finished his first creation, I made a little magnet for his Mommy to put on their refrigerator...ain't he a doll???

After that he, and his Mom and little Em Em's and my hubby and I went out to lunch! I had a delicious dolphin rueben...yum! The kids were delightful, and well behaved and just plain sweet!
Around 4pm, his Mommy, he and I went to see a double feature of 3-D Toy Story I and II. He really loved the first movie, but couldn't quite bring himself to sit through the second one, so we went outside and enjoyed a beautiful area across the street next to a lake, for a while in the evening breeze!

I worked on the beginnings of this paper flower for an ATC. It is held together with a pink rhinestone brad, and I think I will sort of touch the edges of the petals with a darker shade to see what happens! I cut the petals out of one of the decorative scissors...just playing around.

BTW...I "fed" my sourdough starter today and it is bubbling away real well. I am waiting to smell the real strong odor and I will be ready to bake! Can hardly wait!

Your grandson and his creative works look nice. Spending our time with the children is joyful. They make us younger in our mind. Creative activities like these improves the children's ability to appreciate the beautiful things.
