Thankful for helpful sons

Warning- the bragging in this post may be too sweet

Our son Bob is a very handy guy and he is also very generous sharing his talent and working hard.
We bought a new gas double oven range as our old electric range was not working right. 
Bob came to install it and he made it look easy, even with changing out the electric service and activating the gas service. 
His little Andie had fun "helping" Mostly she pointed at the spot where the oven goes and said "uh-oh" many times until the kitchen was normal again. 
Hooking up the oven was quick. 
So Bobby suggested they go to Lowes to get new light fixtures for our garage. The old lights were buzzing and flickering. He had those fixtures installed before lunch. 

We had lunch and his sister was here. Their hot water heater broke. A plumbing company had looked at it Friday and said they would replace it on Monday. With 2 little ones in their home, that is long time with no hot water. 
Bobby said hot water heaters were easy to install so after lunch, they all went to Lowes to buy a hot water heater. 

That just took a couple hours and saved his sister hundreds of dollars.
He was back at our home by midafternoon, still looking freaks has a daisy even though he had done 3 pretty big jobs.
He then showed his knife skills by carving an apple to look like a swan. 

Oh, he hung that tv on the wall for us last year.  

This family is thankful for our Bobby-

  4. Looks like Bobby and Andie may be a team someday....a handyman always needs a supervisor, LOL. How nice that he does all that and with a smile. Gosh, Andie has gotten big!!

    May you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  5. Wow! You have an impressive son. It really warms my heart to see grown children who help their parents and help others. I know a few friends who have children who do absolutely nothing for their parents who actually need their help. It is really so sad.

  6. How lucky you are that you have such a wonderful handyman son! We would've had to hire out for all those things that Bobby did! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
