make time for family

Amanda tagged me in this photo on facebook, and I love it!  (Even though I have spanked my grandchildren when necessary, just not as often as I spanked my children. lol)  Owen got to spend the day with us yesterday, and we had a blast.  Ever since Amanda became a full time stay-at-home mom, we don't get to see him as much, which now makes our time together even more fun.  Yesterday we played Mario Kart, which is his newest favorite game.
By the time Brandon and Amanda came to get him, we were cuddled on the couch watching "Polar Express".  Amanda made the statement about watching it only being November 1st, but little did she know that this was our second viewing of the "Polar Express" this fall.  hahaha.
Well, no Owen today, so I guess I need to get some work done.  I have ornaments to make, photographs to take, items to list, dishes to wash, walls to paint, 
just another day at Yankee Burrow Creations.
Be blessed,


  1. He looks awesome in his costume! We had quite a few Luigis here, but no Marios.

  2. He makes a GREAT Mario!!! And I love that photo up at the top. =0)
    I play Mario Kart with the kiddos sometimes too. Although, I'm not very good at using those wheels.

  3. Great pics and a great looking kid. Aren't grandchildren the greatest. I love the photo about the spanking. So funny and so very true.
