Thank you, Granddad Owen!

We are very thankful for Granddad Owen coming over to help out with Nicholas during this week. In honor of Nicholas calling his sister "Purple Leaf" for many months, Granddad Owen wanted to celebrate the weekend before her birth as a "purple weekend". He brought Nicholas a purple shirt and purple blanket (that just so happened to say, "LSU Tigers"!).



Granddad Owen got to celebrate his birthday with us. It just happened to work out that Rachel's delivery was scheduled on Granddad's birthday so that made the day extra special. Nicholas made Granddad a birthday card and he told Granddad that he could take the card home with him so he can look at it and smile later.





I know he must have been exhausted by the end of the week but he never showed it. Nicholas would bound into Granddad's room early in the morning ready to play and amazingly Granddad is ready to play too. This week, Granddad has fixed school lunches, taken Nicholas to school and picked him up, driven out to the hospital twice a day, done laundry and dishes, picked up take out food, and most importantly just had fun spending time with his grandson. Here are some pictures of their activities this week.
