James' New Blackout Curtain Project!

Gma is one of the most talented people I know.  When it comes to a needle and thread...she can do anything. Whenever anything needs to be fixed Darrell's first words are "I bet your mom can do it!" And basically he is right.  From sewing pant hems, holes in tree house roofs, to trampoline safety nets...she has fixed them all. Not to mention she makes the most beautiful blanket quilts among a ton of other things.
Well when she found out that her only grandson's room is the brightest and hottest because of the setting sun that shines through it everyday, she got the idea to make a blackout curtain.  This curtain turned out gorgeous, matching James' room decor with balls of every sport highlighted in stars. So last week, during Dad's meetings in Houston, they stopped by to set it up.  And wow! What a project that was!  Four hours and a dinner later, the black out curtain project was completed.
And did I mention that the next morning, James slept into the late morning hours for the first time in a long time. His room is cool, dark and sooooo comfortable now that the heat and light is blocked out.

Then it was time for good ol' snuggling with the grandkids. Ahhhh, this is what it's all about!

 Thanks so much, Gma and Papa!
