Gramps & Gran

My parents arrived from Manitoba on Saturday night for their annual October visit. Micah only sees them a couple of times a year and it usually takes him a little while to warm up to them. Grandpa always has some smarties up his sleeve which seem to do the trick! And Granny brought Micah a new play-doh set and some books and that worked pretty well too.



We've had a lot of rain the last few days so we've been kind of cooped up inside the house. My parents brought their laptop and right now my mom and I are both sitting at our screens. I got her signed up on Facebook yesterday and now she's addicted :) We're also anxiously waiting for the birth of the newest Harder grandchild. My brother and his wife are almost 2 weeks overdue with my little nephew! If he holds out until Sunday, he'll share a birthday with me! (Just kidding Laura, I don't want you to be pregnant that long!)

Granny kept Micah busy yesterday baking pies...


I guess we should've put an apron on Micah first.


Making a special "apple pie pizza pop" just for Micah:


Poking holes in it before it goes into the oven:

We are headed into the States for the weekend - to do some shopping while the dollar is so good and to celebrate my birthday. I hope that not everyone else in the lower mainland has the same idea - border line-ups aren't my ideal way to spend a Friday morning...

Have a great time with your parents and enjoy the shopping! Happy Birthday a few days early too! Good luck with the border line ups - you can always check on-line to see where the shortest line up is ;-)

Enjoy the states. I hope you find lots of deals! Happy Birthday too!
Grandparents are the best. When I see Isaiah's grandparents play with him it makes me wonder what type of Grandparent I will be one day.
