and it looks like she even made a special one for Tim...I think he'll have to stop by if he wants it though, since it stayed here!
Ryder was more interested in eating candies than decorating cookies...
...and waited (not too patiently) for the party to begin! He let out a whoop when cousin Ranen arrived, and ran to the door to welcome her.
Now the party could finally begin! Ryder kept wondering if this was all there was to it...sitting around tables wasn't quite his cup of tea. And why would Grammy not come play upstairs with him?
...and we sat down to enjoy a Valentine's pizza party with Grandpa!
Emme & Spencer are always performing their magic tricks...so they were quite impressed that Grandpa had a few tricks up his sleeve this time! What they don't know is that he's been perfecting his act for months...and finally was ready for a performance. I wasn't sure he would ever be brave enough to actually do his tricks, since Kathy and I laughed uproariously when he first tried them on us. The girls, however, were a much kinder audience, and were rather enthralled...offering that he could join them in their next magic show!
We finally got the required batteries to play Uno attack...a game Santa left us at Christmas. I'm not sure we got all the technicalities figured out, but there is no doubt that Spencer was the clear winner (with Grammy and Grandpa pulling up the rear).
