Jaxson Comes for Another Visit

I’ve got some good news and some bad news.  The bad news is that our DIL Suzanne fell in her kindergarten classroom and broke her small finger.  That made it had to take care of William Jaxson, so we offered to help her by taking him back to the Village with us for a few days.  That’s the good news! We had a ball.








We took him for a long walk along the creek, played with him with his new toy, the alphabet train, and oh, we did take him to Disneyland so see all of the Holiday decorations!

His favorite TV show is Mickey Mouse’s Clubhouse.  Well, in California Adventure they have a live show with puppets that brings the clubhouse to life.

IMG_0762IMG_0764We were a little concerned that he might not feel comfortable inside the theater.  When the doors opened there were no chairs or benches.   The floor was carpeted and everybody sat on the floor.  Kind of tough for an old man like me.  Then it got real dark and few kids started crying.  But as the show started Jaxson was fascinated.

IMG_0774After the show we went over to Disneyland to see the lights.  Our timing was not great because everyone was lining up for a parade.  We fought our way down Main Street, and then onto It’s a Small World.

They have a huge Christmas Tree (not a Holiday Tree) where the giant pumpkin was last month.  So we had to have a picture!

The MOHO Moves, and So Does Matt & Suzanne

Matt & Suzanne are moving to a new house.  It’s closer to both of their work, and the house is almost as large as their previous house.  For those of you who don’t know, they short sale their house, which was a very good move.  We took the MoHo to Wilderness Lakes, which is not one of favorite campgrounds.  They have some canals there that attract ducks & geese.  Very pretty animals, but they poop anywhere they want, usually by the campers.

Of course there were a few problems.  The moving company was supposed to be there between 8 & 10.  They showed up about 1:00pm.  Linda & I got up at 6:00am (I know, hard to believe) to pick up Jaxson and go to the new house to meet the cable & internet installer.  He was supposed to be there between 8 & 5.  A long time to not be late, but Matt wanted to make sure he had internet access.  He showed up about 3:00 pm.  Oh well.

Of course the movers brought to small of a truck.  They really packed it in tight, but there was still stuff left over.  Matt & I spent Sunday, in the rain, loading our cars and ferrying it over to the new house.  The good news is we got everything moved by late Sunday afternoon.  And we got to spend some fun time with Jaxson.  He’s growing up so fast.  He doesn’t walk much, he runs everywhere now!

On Monday we headed back to the Village, tired but happy that we could help Matt & Suzanne, and spend time with our Grandson.
