For weeks, Jaiden has been telling his mom that he wants "skate-shoes"(heeleys), for Christmas. Well, they are kind of expensive, considering we weren't sure if he could even skate with them! We stopped at a garage sale Saturday and they had a like new pair for 75 cents, in his size! YAY! We took them home and he was so excited!

Until...he put them on and tried to skate on the tile in the kitchen! It was the funniest thing I think I have ever seen! LOL I laughed so hard, I almost peed my pants.

I would have sworn that this kid had 10 legs, they were moving so fast and in so many directions, all at the same time! I am laughing, now, just thinking about it! He told me that "it isn't very nice to laugh at your little grandson who is trying to skate"!! That made me even laugh harder.

I was so tickled by him, that Justin asked Heather if I was on some new "happy" meds! LOL Kylah recorded it on her phone and I have watched him over and over, Laughing each time.

Hi Denise,
Too cute about your Grandson and his "heeleys"..
I think the planter in the photo is a chipmonk...it almost looks like Chip N Dale from Disney...but no markings on the bottom.
Looks like you found some nice things when you were thrifting!
Have a good week.

Oh, Denise, you made me laughing just looking at the pictures and "imagining" it all! I could just see it! The arms always tickle me when they try to keep from falling! lol!

What a lucky (or blessed rather) day to find just his size for 75 cents!

Have a great day!
