Two of my granddaughters spent the weekend with me. Here is a little look at what we did.
Went to see this movie based on the American Girl doll and book series. The cast was great. Little girls brought their dolls with them. My daughter went with us. The both of us cried. (we're saps) The movie held my granddaughter's interest throughout. (and that isn't easy) Movie review in one word....delightful.
In line at the theater.
After the movie they had to get candy from the bank of .25 machines. Then they were ready to ham it up for the camera!
Then it was back home to try and finish our game of LIFE.
And play the pipe...until Gramma's nerves couldn't take it anymore!
Can you tell this one is a little mischievous? Well, both are actually.
After baths on Saturday night the girls had me roll their hair. I knew I should have taken pictures but I WAS SO TIRED by that time. We played Go Fishing, ate pizza and watched Night At The Museum. Sunday morning we made homemade blueberry muffins and read the funny papers.
Uncle TJ came over around 11:30. Whoopee, someone to fight with!
Don't tell but they almost took him down. Those are two tough girls!
They spent a lot of time doing this....surfing down the stairs on a baby bed mattress.
None of the grands would know about this old family tradition if this big stinker hadn't shown them how it should be done!
When we moved into this house this BIG kid was three years old. There were only 3 bedrooms here at the time (ex later built 2 more bedrooms downstairs) so baby boy didn't have a room of his own. He had used the baby bed up until the move. We got rid of the bed, but kept the baby mattress under a bed by day and at night he would pull it out and sleep in which ever room he chose. And that is the story of how his 2 older brothers devised this game......stair surfing.
Very cute smallish little boy grows into 6 foot 3 (or more) very BIG man who still loves to stair surf.
Ahhhhh, It drives me nuts!!!
While waiting for their other grandmother to come pick them up for a night at her house, we played one more game of cards.
Can I just say, I need a nap!
Happy Sunday afternoon!
