Lovely day

Our family's favorite past time...
The family who shucks together...
Stays together...

Couldn't believe how long they were on the trampoline.

Like I said we LOVE our corn.

Handsome finally got his birthday presents...
but I think his favorites are pictured here.

What is better than hugs and kisses.

Especially juicy ones.

You can't get a kiss out of this one often...
He likes to give you his forehead.

She loves her grandpa...
Even if his moustache smells like corn and butter.

He got them all except one on the cupcakes.

What a blessing this group of minions are.
Our quiver is full.
Thank you Jesus.

My Biggest Little Baby

This little guy was lost yesterday...His big sister and brother started school. I should have done something special with him but we have been together since he was born and I just thought he would go with the flow.

He was very good. "You play me Gaama?"  Of course...we played Ninja Turtles, he grew bored. "Me watch mobie (movie) Gaama". He requested Ninja turtles on the tv.

Then it happened...HE STARTED PLAYING WITHOUT ME!  AND to top it all off, he didn't WANT ME TO PLAY.  Say what? This has never happened in my 9 years of grandmothering. Now I was discombobbled! "Me play by self".  THEN he gathered all his toys in a bag and went UPSTAIRS. "You want me to come too?" "No" he said.  I checked on him shortly and brought a magazine. I was going to watch him play from the couch.  The little STINKER gathered up all his toys and went DOWNTAIRS. Grandma's heart was breaking. I called downstairs..."Call me if you need me."

A while later I hear, "Gaama, Me need you. Me pooped." I must say I was glad to change that poopy diaper. I was allowed in his presence at last. "Me need Middle Rose and my Wild Blonde Boy". He was missing his peeps.  We had lunch and watched a bit of Ninja Turtles...then we sang songs and he took a nap. I had to awaken a very sleepy boy and we rockied for a while and went to get the Big kids. He chirped and ran around the house after we came home with the goods. He was a very happy boy. Grandma was very happy too.

Next week he goes off to preschool WHAT WILL I DO?

Pingle Bank

So we went to visit these two.
Our minions.
So cute.
So fun.

But on to the pingle bank (piggy bank) in the littlest rose's speak.
She was so excited about her Hello Kitty bank.
We started putting her money in.
It made a satisfying sound as it dropped to the bottom of the container.
Then two coins got stuck in the slot.
Grandma used a knife to dislodge them and lo and behold
the back of Hello Kitty's head broke off!
Needless to say I was dumbfounded and wanted to cry.
Little rose said "It's okay Gaaama...its accident.

Well, got home. Went directly to Walmart.
Picked up new Pingle Bank.
I hope she likes it.
I like it. I love her.
Love you...Gaaama
PS...I can't have anything nice, right mama?

Happy Birthday Handsome

Happy birthday Mr. President!

Ravinia, what a nice venue.

What a sea of humanity...although I didn't get claustrophobia.

#1 had the great idea to get tickets!

Wenna Woo made wonderful strawberry shortcakes in a jar.

#2 wrangled the wagon, and that was a job and I'm not talking about the Dolly.
See the deadly red wagon...
Say what? Are we going to Florida?

An excellent spread of fresh melon, hummus, meats and cheeses, bread, garden
vegetable and various desserts. We didn't get a photo of the cookies Dolly made.
But you would have wanted a cupful of them!
And the piece de resistance...
Josh Groban.
What a lovely voice.
What a wonderful day.
What a wonderful evening.
Happy Birthday!
