Meet Grandpa Fred…our latest family member! My husband, and oldest son brought Fred, and Skully home last week to surprise me! I was sooooo excited. But, I had no idea how I was going to display him. So, for at least three days, he sat at dinner with us, the kids dressed him up in their costumes, and he watched movies with us by the fire. Fred popped up all around the house. He sat on the bench and waved goodbye to the kids in the morning. I put him on the front porch to welcome them home in the afternoons!
Then, one afternoon, my daughter – waiting patiently for me to help her with homework – went outside to work on Fred. She sat Skully, the cat, in his lap, and put his hand up to wave to people. He was just reclining back, and chilling on the porch. That’s when I thought about a chair for Fred. My first vision was a lawn chair that reclines. But, I don’t have one of those! I started to go through the porch furniture in my head, and my vision went from chilled Uncle Fred, to Grandpa Fred in a rocking chair!
