This past Saturday - the 14th, Grant and Dylan were able to go to the 3-5 year olds Christmas party at church. Pretty safe to say they both had a great time as they heard stories, munched on pizza, played games in the Gym at church, made wreathes out of hand cutouts, and decorated cookies. I'll be the first one to admit that I was a little surprised that some of the frosting, licorice strips, sprinkles and M&M's actually made it ON the cookies and not directly into the little mouths.
Proud Papa moment - when Grant was in the Gym playing games, they played a game where they had a "grinch" in the middle who would call groups that had to run cross court without being touched by "the grinch". I was plenty nervous that when Grant's turn to be the Grinch came around, he'd revert back to his naturally shy nature - man was I wrong, not only was he not shy, he was chasing people with serious VIGOR. The only problem I had was that when he got close, he was diving for his targets...... on the hard basketball floor. I love the hustle and everything but when Torii Hunter was diving for balls on the Metrodome floor, even that had a little bit of cushion, this kid was laying out on a Gym floor - big props to the kid... .and his bruised elbows!
