You didn't just come for the beef, did you??

LOL...let me explain the post title!  A few days ago when visiting the grandkids (actually we were bringing Hannah her cleaned betta tank so she could put a new fish in that we bought to replace the one that wasn't "feeling well") our little guy Cade came running down the stairs saying "mama, mama...." and went on so quickly that all I got was, sleepover, Hannah, Sam, Saturday....hehehe!

Turns out that big sister Hailee was going to a friend's last night for a sleepover, Hannah was having a friend over for a sleepover last night and Cade decided that he was going to come to grandma and grandpa's house for a sleepover last night :) This decision by the way made Hannah very happy. She did not want her little brother around while her friend was there for a sleepover LOL!

Grandma thought she'd make roast beef for supper because Cade absolutely LOVES my roast beef with mashed potatoes, gravy and carrots. When I say he loves it, I mean he loves it. I've never seen a 4 year old get so excited about eating roast beef. McD's? Spaghetti? perhaps, but not roast beef LOL!

They all had swimming lessons yesterday morning at 9:00, so we told mom that we would just take Cade with us for the day too. Our DIL had a sinus lift on Thursday and needed some rest. Her face is swollen and she can't eat much but liquids.

So home we came with Cade in tow. He kept us going ALL day long. Wow that kid is busy...hehehe! I don't think I sat down once until it was time to eat that famous roast beef LOL! He went outside to help grandpa shovel the fresh snow we got, but not before giving me instructions for hot chocolate when they were done :)  He had to make sure it wasn't candy cane flavor he was happy.

When he and grandpa were done outside they came in and he helped me make their hot chocolate. He asked for marshmallows but this was one of the few times that I didn't have any in the cupboard. So instead, I looked in the fridge and surprised him with canned whipped yummy and so "good" for you....hehehe!

Then it was time to play, so it was on to "bears"...had to be in a dark room, or the sauna, and pretend bears were coming to get us LOL....Alphabet Bingo, cars, puzzles....then it was time for supper. He was so hungry that we were eating at 4:00 LOL!  Two helpings later, plus extra carrots on the side, he decided it was bath time...then he would have his ice cream that he and grandpa went to the store to buy. Cade had it all figured out :)

All was going well then he piped up...he wanted to go home to sleep.  We didn't push him and said he didn't have to go right away, but could decide later.  So we continued to play Alphabet Bingo and then cuddled on the couch to watch The Smurfs :)  He flip flopped about 3-4 times while watching the movie...I go home, I stay here, I go home, I stay get the picture LOL! 

Grandma called mom to let her know that our company had decided to go home for the night so she said they would come pick him up.  By the time they arrived Cade was in "I go home" mode, so that's what he did.

So, now you may understand the post title....were grandpa and grandma just being used today for our roast beef dinner?? LOL!

Grandma loves you
