Sairy (fairy) Garden
So our oldest granddaughter decided she would come and spend the night "all by myself, because I love you Grandma HooHoo". She was very excited and couldn't wait for her parents and brothers to leave.
We were going to make a sairy garden. Neither one of us is Martha Stewart, meaning we both got dirty, our clothes, our arms and legs. We scooped new dirt into the pots and then she picked out what plants to put in which pots and stuck them in the holes. Then came the funnest part...decorating them. She used sparkly stones, eggs, bird nests, a sairy house, moss and whirly gigs. We think they are wonderful...one of them even has a solar light which will help the sairies sind their way home. What do you think?
Then she said, "Grandma, I'm tired of being dirty, can I take a bath?" Of course, my darling...and she had the best time and turned into a prune. Then we did her piggy toes and fingers in four different shades of pink and red.
After dinner and watching part of Heidi with Shirley Temple (which tickled me to no end), we tried to go nigh night. We did end up looking at the moon and "Grandma, look at the stars, I never see those at home".
In the morning, I actually made pancakes and sausages and she set the table so pretty and folded the napkins under the silverware. "Who taught you that?" "I saw it on Oso." Then she disappeared...and came back with some sparkly fabric for the table and Grandpa HooHoo graciously moved everything and helped her place the cloth.
She was very proud of herself and we thought it was lovely.
