We had a great time with Vander at the 13th Annual Pumpkin Carving Festival at Oakwood last night. Vander was the sweetest looking pirate ever! He meet many of Grammy's friends (he wanted to know all their names and if they had "nicknames!") and was thrilled to go to the Scholastic Book Fair. Vander ate some hotdog and a cookie plus drank lots of water! He listened to the book, The Woman Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, read by Mrs. Helvey, and participated in the activities (stomping of the feet, clapping of the hands, etc) the book prompted with all the other pre school through Kindergarten Oakwood students. Vander also played Pumpkin Bowling and Grammy painted a pumpkin on his face. A very nice friend of Grammy's gave Vander a certificate for a free book at the book fair, so Vander, with the help of his Pops, picked out a fun looking book called Duck at the Door. We hope he likes it!
It was a great, fun time for Pops and Grammy, and Vander, too, who stayed up way past his bed time, but was a happy, friendly pirate the entire evening!
