More visitors!

Posted on January 7, 2011


According to Gus, visits from his grandparents (both sets live in Iowa) don’t happen often enough.

M’s parents are visiting, so I’ll keep this post short and sweet.  They’ve escaped the bitterly cold Iowa weather and are headed another 5 hours south of us to spend the rest of their winter.   To Gus’s delight, they spoiled him rotten once again.

Per usual, Gus’s favorite part was ripping the packaging to shreds.  It’s pure entertainment for him and for us.  He received a very cute holiday scarf and the movie Marmaduke.  Of course, he despised wearing the scarf, but it will definitely make an appearance on next year’s Christmas cards.  Gus gave his grandparents their very own Shutterfly photo book filled with…photos of Gus!  They loved it!

This is what the room looked like after Gus terrorized the presents.  He was very proud of himself.  I like to imagine he’s surveying the damage and thinking, “well done…presents. are. destroyed.”.

Hope you all have a terrific Friday!  I don’t know about you, but our week crept by at a snail’s pace.  We’re so glad the weekend is upon us.  We have long park walks, yard work, house cleaning, and trip planning in our future.  We’re pretty sure Gus only cares about the long park walks 😉

Do you have exciting plans this weekend?  We’d love to hear about it!
