Grayson, our middle grandson, turned 9 on Wednesday. The family party was today. He's a giant Lego fan, a Wii gamer and a voracious reader - and, of course, he loves money, too! And he got a little bit of everything he likes.
We were informed about our confusing status right before he was about to open his gifts. So, we tried to make it a bit better for him. So, first, he opened the Eyewitness Book.
I just can't tell you how pleased we were that he loved everything from everyone - nothing is more fun than a happy boy on his birthday! But we revel in absolute delight at his enjoying that simple confusing gift - and especially how much fun and information came from that little smiling peanut charm!
In fact, I've started to memorize the names of the Presidents in order - something I've wanted to do since my college days. I knew the first 6 only this morning. Now, thanks to a plastic peanut and a great kid, I know 11 in a row tonight.
***Thanks to Sandy, one of our customers, for identifying the peanut for us! We just thought it was a silly peanut***
