Our Grandson is staying with us for a few days. One of the perks of having the summer off is being able to babysit while his family is waiting to move into a new house.
His cute 7 year old smile.
The first morning we made pancakes. He asked if I remember how to make Mickey Mouse pancakes like I used to. I don't remember ever making them for him but I didn't mention that to him.

At the convenience store:
Clerk to boy....you are such a cutie.
Boy....everyone ALWAYS says that
After watching a commerical telling about a contest with a $10,000 prize, the boy stated his desire to enter and win such contest. I asked him what he planned to do with his winnings. His reply: I would give it to you grandma!
Every trip to Grandma's must involve cookies. I let him help. His and Grandpa's favorite cookies are No Bake Cookies (recipe below)
We removed a tick from his head, played Wii and computer games, watched lots of Disney channel, rode the 4 wheeler around the yard and lots of other fun things. It is great to have him here.
