Happy Grandparents Day 2008

We normally celebrate Grandparents Day at the beach-- but with the hurricanes off the coast, Nana still healing from knee surgery, and both boys now in school.....we are spending the weekend at home. Tonight, I attempted to cook. I made Spicy Shrimp with salad and French bread. I got the recipe from Pioneer Woman (which is a fun website if you haven't checked it out.) It turned out pretty good! In addition to what I cooked, Mom threw some ribs on the grill, had some butterpeas cooked up and Dad roasted some potatoes. Oh, and I also made oatmeal raisin cookies since they are Nana's favorites. Celebration dinners are always the most fun!
After dinner, the boys gave Nana and Boppa their Grandparents Day presents. Boppa got a wooden box for his desk with a picture of him and his two grandsons on the top and Nana got photo coasters for her living room with pictures of the grandsons in each coaster. Nothing big--just a little something to remind them how much they mean to us and the boys!
