In order to be a Campbell, you must like Tacos and if you are really a Campbell, there is no place like Taco Johns. . . The perfect place to meet up with Grandpa Bob and have dinner on the way home. Bears, Tacos, and Grandpa. What could be better?
Every year we go to Conrad, Montana to work in Mike’s cousin’s restaurant on Thanksgiving. All of the money paid for the Thanksgiving meal goes to the local food bank and Joe’s employees get a day off. It really is one of our favorite things we like to do. We run like crazy and when it is all over we get an amazing Thanksgiving meal.
And slippery. Hey, how did you know I needed boots?
So now, Santa is coming?
Nora is teaching him all about snow. When to eat it. How to build a snowman. That you should wear gloves when you are playing in it or your hands will burn. Hot water does not make cold hands feel any better.
They spent hours playing in the small amount that we had. As much as this little brother can be a little brother, they have been good playmates.
With 5 pumpkins to carve, we convinced some to paint them. I’m one of the main scoopers – not my favorite. This was Naso’s first time. He was so anxious to get his hand on that knife. Sorry buddy – you have to be much older for that! Nonetheless, it was a fun evening. We’ve got some real beauties.
One day about 3 months ago, Naso was seen doing cartwheels and flips into Primary on a Sunday. At the end of his acrobatic display, he raised his hands in the air and said, “I’m gettin’ baptized.” It wasn’t very reverent, but you gotta give the kid points for enthusiasm. The big day came. He glowed – bounced out of the water and gave his dad a big hug. Big weekend for this little kid.
This boy has been waiting for this birthday his whole life . . . . .well maybe since he has been here. Not a day has passed that he hasn’t added something to his birthday list. It was a little discouraging when I told him that he would not be getting everything on that list. But, he woke up happy and excited to be 8.
So glad it was a nice day. Lots of running and fighting villains and a few games put on by some pretty amazing sisters.
Happy Birthday, Super Naso! So glad you are part of our family!
My mom came to school with Naso one day. There was a program all about Grandmas and Grandpas walking slow. They got a picture together in a rocking chair. A lot of stereotypes about grandparents. Nonetheless, Naso was able to show her his classroom and read to her and introduce her to his teacher. He loved it.
As you can see, Naso’s grandma is quite young. In fact, you’d have a tough time keeping up with her when walking in the mall!
