Nanaw went to visit Chase on Sunday evening and to have a delicious dinner of ham and Mama's special rice dish. Chase had requested ham for dinner and Mama complied. She also fixed crescent rolls but surprisingly enough, Chase only ate one crescent roll. Mama and Nanaw asked Chase if he wanted to play a game after dinner, but he didn't seem interested. Nanaw suggested Yeti Spaghetti but Chase said no. Nanaw went into the living room to play with Chase. He was playing his own version of Clash of Clans, a game that Daddy told him about and that Daddy plays. Nanaw is going to see if she can download it to her phone. Nanaw then suggested to Mama that they go to Walgreen's to see if they could find peanut brittle for Uncle Mike for his birthday. They wanted Chase to go with them but he said no, he was going to stay and play with Daddy. Nanaw had a great time with Mama at Walgreen's. They didn't find any peanut brittle but Nanaw bought chocolate covered cherries for Uncle Mike, and Mama found Russell Stove candy and also a little swinging toy. She got peanut M&Ms for Chase and Daddy.

On Saturday morning, Mama, Chase and Nanaw went on a shopping adventure at Gravois Bluffs. First they went to Kohl's. Mama bought Chase a hoodie sweatshirt, two pairs of winter jammies and a robe. Nanaw bought him a nerf revolver that will be a birthday present, and Mama bought a Fortnite toy and a Roblox toy for Chase for his birthday. Nanaw added some things to Chase's Christmas list: laser tag, Fortnite battle bus, electronic Uno, crayon maker, and glow in the dark slime. After Kohl's, they went to 5 Below. Mama bought a Jack ornament and candy. Nanaw bought a phone charger and a Snickers with almonds. Mama had picked up a Jack ornament at Kohl's but set it down and left it when she looked at a PacMan game. She'll probably order it from Hallmark. In the evening, Mama, Daddy, Chase and Nanaw went to Chase's soccer game. The other team looked like third graders instead of second graders because they were all taller than Chase's team. The other team won, 8 to 4, but Chase's team did a good job of trying to keep up with them.

Chase wore his new green winter coat to school on Friday because the zipper came off his black coat, and he can't wear it anymore. After school, Chase and Nanaw went to the car wash. Chase announced to Nanaw that he was going to take a nap and so he did. He closed his eyes right away and slept until they got home from the car wash. Nanaw had set the kinetic sand up on the kitchen counter, and Chase played with the kinetic sand until it was time to go home. He had a great time -- he really loves that kinetic sand. Just before Nanaw took Chase home, he tried on his Jason mask and picked up his dagger. Nanaw took a picture of him, of course. When they got back to Chase's house, Mama said they were going to dinner at Tequila's. Nanaw asked if she could go along, and Mama said of course. When Daddy got home from work, they left for Tequila's. They got to sit in one of the cool booths. Everybody ate lots of chips and salsa and the cheese dip that Mama ordered. Chase got a cheese quesadilla, and Nanaw got a quesadilla with everything but chicken. It was delicious.

Mama brought Chase to Nanaw's house a little early on Thursday morning because once again her friend Becky was coming to Mama's house to ride together to work. Becky was the team member of the year, and they were doing a big celebration for her. Somehow Chase got Nanaw out of the house early, and they were really early at school. When Nanaw picked Chase up from school, she wanted to go to the car wash but Chase didn't want to go. He told her to go tomorrow while he was at school. When they got back to Nanaw's house, Nanaw showed Chase the Santa Jack she bought at Walmart as an early Christmas present for Mama. Chase played Roblox on his laptop while Nanaw worked on creating a Jason game on her computer. Mama was still at work when Nanaw took Chase home so Nanaw didn't get to see her. Somehow the zipper came off Chase's coat on the way home, and he was upset because he said he really likes that coat. Daddy was going to try to fix it for Chase.

Mama brought Chase to Nanaw's house a little early on Wednesday morning because her friend Becky was coming to Mama's house to ride together to work. Chase wore his cool ICS sweatshirt today and looked really cute in it. When Nanaw picked Chase up from school, he forgot his water bottle so Chase and Nanaw went back to his schoolroom to pick it up. Mrs. Meyer's son and daughter were there, and Nanaw waved to them. They've very cute and well-behaved. Chase asked Nanaw if Mama had signed him up for chess, and Nanaw said she didn’t think so but she wished she had because Mrs. Herrmann is the sponsor. Nanaw had wanted to be a volunteer in the chess group and learn how to play chess. But Chase says he doesn't want to do it. Uncle Mike came to visit in the afternoon. He fixed Nanaw's hall light and the downstairs lights. Chase was playing on the laptop, and Nanaw wanted him to rename the Roblox game she was working on but he didn't want to do it. So Nanaw will do it tonight.

To Nanaw's surprise, Chase had the day off Tuesday; his school was closed because of ice. Nanaw didn't think the ice was that bad but evidently it was. Also to Nanaw's surprise, her garage door was frozen shut. It's a good thing Chase didn't have school because Nanaw couldn't have opened her garage and driven him there. In the morning, Chase and Nanaw went outside to play in the snow. Unfortunately, Chase broke the snowball maker trying to bang it on the ice. Chase made snow angels, and then made snowballs to throw at Nanaw. He also rode his Big Wheel around in the snow. Later, Chase and Nanaw played with his toy fishing gear in the kitchen sink. He now has two fishing rods so he and Nanaw can fish together. Then Chase had the idea to cook the fish they caught in his little kitchen in his room so that's what they did. Chase and Nanaw also made games on Roblox. Chase made a Michael Meyer game named Surviving Halloween. Nanaw made a Friday the 13th Jason game. At the end of the day, Chase and Nanaw went to Dollar Tree to try to buy another Jason mask, a knife for Jason and replacement snowball makers but Dollar Tree didn’t have any of them. Instead they bought a gun that shoots plastic golf balls and an ax with pretend blood on it.

Monday was Veterans' Day: Thank you to all veterans who served their country. Mama was off from work and Chase was off from school. So they went on a shopping adventure. Nanaw made a list / agenda. Mama and Chase picked Nanaw up, and first they went to the bank for money for Mama and then to the gas station for gas for Mama's car. It started raining, then sleeting and then snowing. It kept getting colder and colder. Next, they went to Old Navy to buy another flannel shirt for Chase but they were all out of them. Mama bought herself a puffy red winter coat and a black and white scarf. After Old Navy, they went to the big Dollar Tree on Lemay Ferry. Mama bought poster board, etc. for the team member of the year celebration at work on Wednesday. Chase got another fishing kit and a Hot Wheels car. After Dollar Tree, they went to Shoe Carnival. Mama bought Chase a new pair of Adidas school shoes and a black pair of church shoes. Next, they went to Walmart. Mama had Chase try on the Sunday best outfit in the fitting room, and Chase didn't much like the fitting room or trying on the clothes but he did. Mama got him a size 10 instead of an 8. The outfit is very cute; it has a blue shirt, gray vest and pants and a tie. It's for the Christmas program and for wearing to church. On the way out of Walmart, Mama went to Subway and got lunch for Chase. Mama stopped at McDonald's to get lunch for herself and then she took Nanaw home. It was a wonderful, fun day with two of Nanaw's favorite people.
