This year my cousin Courtney and her two girls picked Grandma up, at my mom's, and brought her up to our house for a sleepover. Courtney and her two dollies left after lunch on Monday and Grandma stayed at our house for the night. My mom came to get Grandma after lunch on Tuesday to spend the remainder of her visit back down in Hudson. Did you follow any of that? Basically my Grandma spent the night at our house Monday. This has NEVER happened before so I'm pretty excited we got Grandma all to ourselves.
I see how fortunate my two children are to have a set of grandparents (my folks) that live so close. I never had grandparents who were able to spend an occasional weekend together or attend school functions. I so appreciate my parent's, and sister's, attempts at creating such a relationship with Isaiah and Anna. Needless to say, I miss Grandma a lot and she's lots of fun to hang out with. We all had a blast with our sleepover.
We kept Grandma busy while she was here too. She fed the little bottle lamb Monday evening. Grandma played Old Maid with Matthew, Isaiah and Anna while I cleaned up after supper. Grandma taught Matthew how to play a dice game she plays with her friends for fun at her apartment building back home. Tuesday Grandma worked on play-dough with Anna and she taught me the pattern she uses for crocheting the little scrubbies she makes for doing dishes. It was a treat on Monday to just sit and chat uninterrupted while Anna snoozed in the afternoon. It was a great sleep-over and I just had to get it on the blog so it would be recorded. Enjoy the pictures.
