Two Weeks Are Up ! What Fun It Has Been...

 I was there when they said their morning "Good-by's"
to Daddy from the window.

We read Books, Books and more Books.
(notice the laundry basket,
I put it to use in between books and other activities)

Baking quiche, muffins, cookies and Grammie Goo's
famous banana bread.

Washing Dishes,
soooo much fun!

 Lots of bonding time with Ila!

Making "toys"
Rice with little treasures, that each of them
 placed inside a clear container.

They need to shake it to find the treasures.


Making creations with Play Dough  

Here we are making Peanut Butter Cookies
 Click here for the recipe
The "official taste tester"
(check out the little hand on my arm - love it!)

Good old outdoor fun.
Who's that in the woods?


Cuddle Time!

Gave them a big bag of rice to play with

Daily Walks
find some"treasures".

Making a Sand Box
and pretending we are at the beach.

More morning walks!                              My favorite part of the day.

I will miss our
                                       snack time talks,
                                                                             kisses, and
 all the LOVE that was given out!

Love you Lulu, Levi and Ila!

  1. Precious, beautiful times! You are well blessed with such treasures to love and pamper!

  2. Oh, SO much fun. I can tell you love being the gran. They are growing up, too! Wow. to read the birth story!...

  3. Oh these pictures are just wonderful...and they tell it all...precious, fun and memory making time for all. I can't wait until it is my turn to do this!

  4. I don't even know where to begin I love this post so much!! :)
    It looks like you had the best couple of weeks ever!! :) :) :)

  5. You're such a good grandma! How blessed!

  6. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Now you need another two weeks off to recover!

  7. What a great way to spend your time; having tons of fun with the grandkids. Many memories to cherish! Jude

  8. What precious memories you are making Christine, beautiful photos.

  9. Christine, you are the grandmother I someday want to be. Such creativity and simplicity (passing on to them the joy we find in a walk, a sand box, all the things that we grew up appreciating since we had no digital distractions). These will be memories that the kids take with them all their lives.


  10. I don't know, Christine. Maybe it's because it's late and I'm tired, but these photos made me cry. I was thinking, what a rich life, and the doll baby washing dishes ... I was remembering the fleeting season of childhood.

    Great post, my friend. Enjoy every minute.

  11. Christine, I just love all of your pics, but the one of Levi holding your arm, well, as a grandma myself, that one just takes the cake! Thanks for sharing your
    precious memories. I'm off to read Kimmy's story...

  12. I came over from Viola's blog...I so enjoyed your time with your grands...they are adoreable and you look like you do the same things I do with mine...taking walks, baking, playing, etc. I love being a grandma too! I also enjoyed your posts about the signs...was that Woodinville, WA. My sister lived there for a few years.

    Looking forward to getting to know you more!


  13. I am enjoying my "two weeks" now... I know how much you miss those sweet times, but I know you will have some more soon!! blessings ~ tanna
