Trip to Mamaw's

A couple of weekends ago, we made a trip up to Nixa, Missouri (near Springfield) to visit Nick's Mamaw.   Nick had been working on a TV stand for her for a few weeks that he finished and we made the trip up to take it to its new home.

Caleb fell asleep a few minutes into the trip. 

Hanging out with Mamaw.  He thought it was so fun to sit on the fireplace ledge. 

Mamaw the Great with her mop-headed great grandson. :)  (this was obviously pre-haircut)

We took her on a Valentine's date to Cheddar's.  We'd never been there before, but the food was great and the prices were great and the peach tea was fantastic!!

Mamaw had this cool toy that shot monkeys out of a cannon. 

After Cheddar's Caleb got his haircut that you can read about here.

Mamaw with the TV stand that Nick made.  Didn't he do a great job?  He even got to use some of his Papaw's old tools that had been in the family for years and years and years.  That made it extra special.  The weekend we went, was the 4 year anniversary of Papaw's passing which happens to be the day before Valentine's.  We had so much fun reminiscing and telling Papaw stories.  I wish Caleb could have met him.  Yesterday was also the one year anniversary of when my Grandpa passed away.  Sure missing our grandparents.  We are so blessed to have had these incredible people (including my Grandma Willis).

Back to the TV cabinet.  Mamaw sat down with Nick over New Year's and was able to tell him what kinds of features she wanted, and Nick made it exactly to her specifications. 

Work it, Mamaw! 

We had a fantastic visit to Mamaw's and hope to be able to devote an entire day to each one of our grandparents in the near future.  Go hug or call your grandma or grandpa (or whatever endearing term you might use)!  :)
