Opening some gifts
Kayden had a birthday last week and turned five.Cmon, how in the world did that happen? Seriously. He was a tiny babe at the hospital just yesterday, Cuhrazy!. And now he doesn't want to hold my hand in public anymore because "grandma, I'm big." He has soaked up so much knowledge in these five short years...he's been like a little sponge. He started preschool this fall and goes two full days a week. He told his teacher at orientation that he only wants to learn about dinosaurs and trains. He loves school...he's been known to get up at 5:30 and he'll get his backpack and announce to his sleeping parents that he's ready for preschool...of which, they are less than thrilled! He was excited because his birthday fell on a preschool day and he took cupcakes along for everyone. His friends at school are Paris, Maylee and Jakobi. He loves dinosaurs, trains, pirates, the Cat in the Hat, listening to books and grandmas smoothies. He really doesn't like to take naps or just sleep in general...he would rather be awake and living life...he loves to wrestle with his little brother and daddy. He reminds me in so many ways of his daddy when he was little. I love being his grandma and watching him grow into his own person!
Happy Birthday big guy!

Gail did end up flushing my port then. She did a very good job except pushed the needle a little bit slow. I had forgotten to put numbing cream on, so it hurt. But didn't last long. The whole thing went well. I'm so glad she's willing to do this for me. They will deliver the flush kit every month. I go back in a couple of weeks and hopefully I will feel better by then and lungs sound better!

So at 5:30, they had cooking demonstrations by Lee Ann Miller (a Taste of Home field editor) and Betty, another lady who works at the store. The did a really good job together. We learned how to make a pretty apple stomboli, as well as a meat one, a chocolate toffee "Christian crack(le)"(you had to be there), a very cool upside down pecan apple pie...all using products in the store and Butter Churn.
Afterwards, we could sample all the foods that that they had shown recipes for or done demonstrations of and others samples throughout the store, as well as a discount to shop. The meatballs and the smoked turkey were awesome! And that's what I'm having for Thanksgiving! I loved the tables decorated for Christmas too...I got some good ideas!.
