Winding the Clock

This was a common occurence at Grandma and Grandpa's on Sunday nights.  The Grandfather clock needed to be wound, and it was always the little kids that got to do it.  They looked forward to this moment all night.  There were 3 weights to wind, so 3 kids got to do it.  Grandpa would announce that it was time to wind the clock, and everyone would gather around for the exciting event.

In this picture, we are not sure who everyone is.  We think the little guy holding the door is Jake (who is now in 8th grade), and the one winding the clock is definitely Kim.  The other two kids are up for debate.  Any ideas?

Another perk of being a little kid on Sunday nights at Grandma and Grandpa's house was that Grandpa always had a bag of M&M's for them to take as they were leaving.

It was so fun to be a kid having Grandpa for a grandpa.  He loved to make his grandkids smile.
