Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

Our fun continues....

We all went up to Happy Trails in the morning and walked around on the trails.  The kids and us too had fun in the snow.  Ken took the tractor out and while David and I walked up the hill,  Ken helped Scout drive the tractor up the hill to the Wood Shop.  Japhy helped too by working the front loader up and down as needed.
When it was lunch time we went back to the house.  Then it was time to go to the library and the kids picked out a video to watch and Japhy got a book to read.  A trip to the candy store was next where each kid got a bag to fill with their choice of candy. 

Our next fun time was playing a couple games of Clue.  Before we knew it, it was supper time.  We promised them a trip to Brenda's for pizza so went back out for that.  We had told them how about the HUGE pizza you could get there and we ordered one.  Half pineapple for them and half cheese which we like.  Almost every time someone orders this pizza they take a picture of it.  I was no exception.
This evening we are working on a 200 piece jigsaw puzzle. 

It's been another great day.  How blessed we are to be able to be spending all this time with our grandchildren.  They are such great kids and have made this holiday a very special one.  And we still have another whole day with them. : )

A happy day to you my friends.

Our grandchildren accept us for ourselves,
without rebuke or effort to change us,
as no one in our entire lives has ever done,
not our parents, siblings, spouses, friends -
and hardly ever our grown children.

What a bargain grandchildren are!
I give them my loose change,
and they give me a million dollars' 
worth of pleasure.
~Gene Perret

Do not take anything for granted,
not one smile or one person
or one rainbow, or one breath,
or one night in your cozy bed.
