Grant and the Beantstalk :)

Last night Grant had his second play of the year, Jack and the Beanstalk. He did great as the giant and had a wonderful stage presence! I was so proud, as usual. I didn't cry this time. We had lots of family support. Wes and Imo, Janie and Lauren and Sam, Paul, Christy and Nigel all came. While I missed Mom tremendously (she loved his last performance), it was a true blessing to have such supportive family and friends for G. (PS- Stephen had to work and Aidan was with his Mom. They were sad to miss it and sent good luck wishes).

Last night Grant was in his room for awhile being quiet (odd), so I checked in on him. He was listening to Imagine Dragons "Radioactive" and writing down every word to the song so he could sing it. He would stop the song every few seconds and write down the words. I was impressed. So here is his preliminary work:

Grant being Grant

Here's Grant doing what he does best. Entertaining.

Thornhill Game Day

Back in the swing of things, we went to Pearl's for brunch and I came up with a rather ridiculous idea. I suggested we all pretend to have a different name for the entire day and if you called someone by their real name, you had to put your thumb on your forehead for 5 seconds.

I had a long night. I wasn't all there on Sunday morning. Hence, the ridiculous game.

The boys loved it. Here are names:

Grant was Tubuscus (some guy on the internet he follows that I nothing of)
Aidan was Pootie Pie (some character from some show I know nothing of)
Stephen was Rod Tidwell (from Jerry Maguire*)
I was Phoebe (from Friend's)

*I somehow or another in my "still not over the night before mindset" sent Stephen the link for Jerry Maguire when Rod asks Jerry to SHOW HIM THE MONEY. This clip went played over and over again all day Sunday while Tubuscus and Pootie Pie chased a rabbit at my Mom's house while I was attempting to clean out things, to no avail again.

He doens't like the sun in his eyes, so I gave him my shades.

Not sure on this one... They both were in a very silly mood.

This has nothing to do with Sunday Fun Day. This was Saturday
night go to a charity event and make Ashley nervous all day about it.
We had fun. I was worried for nothing. As usual.

Recent Photos


I went through my phone this morning avoiding work and probate requirements. I am not a procrastinator, usually. Just today. And likely will get back to things after this post.

I realized I had several pictures in my phone I meant to make blog posts of. I decided against the Christmas ones. Too sad for me and it's Valentine's Day anyway.

So in no particular order, here you go:

Not going to watch after he heard the sound of the saw.
I don't blame him.

Changed his mind. He wanted to make
sure she did it correctly and did not saw his
arm in half.

This is how Grant signs his name into the aftercare
program at school.

And here's my favorite boys cooking dinner
for me.

Mini Post

I have been overloaded with too much stuff but thought I would try and get back to somewhat of a normal life and get back to my blog, which has been neglected. I kind of lost the will to do anything, really.

Given that, here are a few random photos.

Grant and I were hanging out on the couch and somehow or another, he ended up with underwear on his head. He thought it was hysterical.

Stephen started his new job as Vice President of Consulting for TEEMCO this week. He wears a suit like nobody's business. Just the most handsome man in the world.

We got the cat a new toy that makes him go bananas. Uncle Dave recommended it. I highly suggest you get one for your Kitty.

And then there is G with Mitty. He loves that cat. Almost wears him like a shirt half the time.

I haven't had much to say lately. I lost my sweet Mom and blogging is the last thing I feel like doing. So for now, here is her obituary. That's so weird to write. We lost a great soul too soon. I miss you, Mom.

Sept 4, 1952 - Dec 30, 2013 OKLAHOMA CITY Nancy Lou Lewis, Oklahoma City, died suddenly Monday, December 30 in the comfort of her home. She was born September 4, 1952, to Cecil and Lucy Lewis in Ardmore, Oklahoma, where she attended Ardmore High School. She later attended the University of Texas. She is survived by her only daughter, Ashley Thornhill, of Oklahoma City; son-in-law, Stephen Thornhill; grandson, Grant Ehret; sister, Dixie Galloway; brother-in-law, Richard Galloway; brother, James Lewis; sister-in-law, Linda Eicher; all of Elizabeth, New Jersey; along with many loving nieces and nephews and their wonderful children, whom she adored immensely. She was active in business, her true passion and talent. She became an entrepreneur first with Shoe Biz company in Oklahoma City in the 1970s and later owned and operated a business in southwest Oklahoma City with her former husband, Don Monroe. She moved forward in her career, working in real estate and business management for Galloway and Lewis Exploration. She attended the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Oklahoma City for many years and enjoyed working in the church garden in her free time. Nancy will be remembered for many wonderful things. She had a tremendous sense of style and class. She was lively and had a way of lighting up any room she entered. She was a wonderful daughter to her parents throughout their lives, devoting the latter part of her years to their care, which she did impeccably. She was a sweet and full-of-life mother and grandmother to her daughter and grandsons. Her love of travel, life and family will always be cherished and never forgotten. Her memory will be honored on Monday, January 6 at the Hahn Cook funeral home at 2 p.m.
