Fun with Granny and Granddad

This past weekend, Jeff's parents came down for a whirlwind visit. They were bringing Christmas presents for their favorite baby grandson (and a few for his parents, too!). They arrived late Friday night, and returned home on Sunday, so really we had only one full day with them.

Jeff and I cooked them a delicious breakfast that morning (I had to get those pancakes in there somehow). There were various activities throughout the day. We had them open their Christmas presents from us. They were thrilled by the fleece blanket with a picture of Vinny on it (for Granny) and the tie with one-inch pictures of Vinny on it (for Granddad). Jeff and his dad went to pick out a Christmas tree for us. They brought home a very nice Frasier fir. Meanwhile, Vinny and his Granny played a lot together. Granny also fed Vinny his lunch.

That evening, we went out to dinner at a restaurant by the river. The view was great, the food was delicious, and the company was fantastic. It was a good ending to a great day.

When Granny and Granddad left the next day, Vinny was distraught. He cried for about ten minutes because he was so sad that they had left. This is a new development for him. He cries when Jeff or I leave the room, but he's never cried for anyone other than us. But I can definitely understand why he did, because his grandparents are just crazy about him and showed him a lot of attention while they were here.
