Going to Grandma’s House

Thanks for the guest post by Alphonso Cooley

Every Thanksgiving, my brothers and sisters and I will gather our families and make the annual Thanksgiving trek to our grandmother’s house. After the kids are bundled up in the car, I gather up the half dozen pies I’ve made and get settled in myself while my husband sets the ADT home alarm. The trip only takes an hour for us. We play road trip games and sing along with the radio, so it doesn’t even seem like an hour by the time we’re pulling into her crowded driveway.

The kids will rush in to get their usual hugs and kisses before running off to play with their cousins. Once the pies are safely stored in the pantry, I join my sisters and sisters-in-law in the kitchen. Grandma runs a tight kitchen and gives each of us at least one task in the preparation of our mouthwatering meal. This is such a special time for us. The chores are easy and the bonding and joy is irreplaceable. The men usually avoid the kitchen because of our loud laughing and occasional crying jags. Hey, we’re an emotional family who loves each other very deeply and we’re not afraid to show it.

Once we are seated for our meal, our grandfather will lead us all in a prayer of thanks for this very special time together. By the time he’s done, every single one of us knows why we are gathered together. I feel very blessed and thankful for my family and this special time every year.

CLOSED Star Wars R/C Millennium Falcon Giveaway & Review

What a great gift idea for all those Star Wars fans out there! I know that growing up I watched Star Wars frequently and enjoyed it back then. Today I get to show a little bit about Star Wars to my children by using the Star Wars R/C Millennium Falcon sent to me from Hasbro Toys for review.

About Star Wars R/C Millennium Falcon

Han Solo once bragged that the Millennium Falcon “made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs”…and now fans can give it their best shot with Hasbro’s all-new STAR WARS R/C MILLENNIUM FALCON! For the first time ever, the MILLENNIUM FALCON – the most beloved and iconic STAR WARS ship of all-time – is available as an indoor flying remote control vehicle. Measuring an impressive 11 inches long and 8 inches wide, the largest flying STAR WARS remote control vehicle to date is highly detailed, easy to fly and includes a charging controller and vehicle battery for up to five minutes of flying time.

Recommended for ages 8 and up {although my 4 year old uses this with supervision} Approximate retail value is $49.99

Product Details

  • Controller charges vehicle – no wall socket needed!
  • 3 different channel selections so you can battle with other ships {sold separately}
  • Vehicle comes with non-replaceable rechargeable LiPo battery.
  • Controller requires 4 “AA” batteries {not included}.

What the Happily Blended Family Thinks

We think this would be a great addition to any household, wrapped up under the Christmas tree this year. We have had the Star Wars R/C Millennium Falcon for a while now and have found no cons, maybe the fact that it only holds a charge for about 30 minutes, which ends up seeming more like 15 minutes can stink. Since it seemed like the charged time was not accurate I literally timed use and it does indeed have 30 minutes of flying power at a time. The kids enjoy this toy very much, my hair doesn’t enjoy it, but the kids enjoy it and that is what matters most!

Whether it’s a big kid, young kid or kid at heart I can recommend this as a great gift idea this year!

An Exploring We Will Go

The other weekend we thought we would travel out into the woods and check it out! At first I started walking off into the woods by myself with my orange hat on for protection from them hunters and then Ki slowly started to follow, next was J and the boys.

Spending about an hour in the woods we found old metal tins, old hoses, a river looking thing at the bottom of a long, steep hill, and then we started to walk along the stone wall border of the boundary line for our property and neighbors property. That is when exploring went a little further than what we had ever experienced before.

your hip bones connected to your??

Yes we found bones, assuming these are animal bones, looks like what a hip bone? There is also some pieces of bone here and there in the pics. We took another pic of the longer bone shown in above picture …

And last but certainly not least we found one other bone out on the other side of a stone wall just buried lightly with pine needles and dirt … please tell me someone that these really are animal bones … right? Please!

I did send the pics to my Dad who assures me they are some animals bones and I have to listen to him because it’s really the only thing that makes sense living away up here in the hilly landscaping with animals everywhere, coyotes howling at night … but part of me wonders … what if … they … are … not … animal … bones ….
