We're Staying Over~ Right??

The Trio has come
to spend the
We have cleaned out the playhouse
and now it is time to
help Papa
tidy up the lawn.
Hmmmm...Are you sure that
meets all child safety
They're fine- You worry too much..
Unh-huh--It's all fun
and games
til somebody gets their
eye poked out with a stick...
or worse....
falls off the tractor and
gets run over by the wagon.
Just Be Careful!
They soon discover it is too cold to play outside.
They troop into the house
and decide to watch a movie.
And, here it comes..
The question of the day~
We're staying over, right?
The sucker light on my forehead starts
We'll see!
(and y'all know what THAT means-doncha?
Yes! That's a yes..of course it is)
It takes 26 argumentative minutes to pick
a movie.
Because SOMEONE wants to watch
The Whizard of Hoz for the
575th time.
And SOMEONE ELSE wants to
Shirley Temple (can you believe that)
Shirley Temple as Heidi and Lulu
still loves it?
That kid has good taste.
Finally, finally, we decide to watch
for the 5,362 time....We know all the words by heart.
Beautiful Ria must put on her best gown
to watch this movie..
and spinning is part of the
fun.SweetCheeks is looking a little woe-be-gone.
Whatever is the matter, SweetCheeks?Sadly, the words fall from her lips..
My shoes doan't mhatch my dwress!
That's okay, SweetCheeks..
No one will notice.
Yes! Yess! They will!
Ih'll notice, Nana.~
And 'sides that..loook...
Cinduhrulla's face falled off and
now my shoes is whrecked.
Oh My! I'll fix them later.
Yep! I promise!
Blasted stinking shoes that cost as much as
a regular pair and fall apart on a whim!
The movie is playing loud
and clear..
They just HAD to watch a movie.
Here's what the girls are doing..
whilst the movie is playing..
SweetCheeks is reading her
Rainbow Book...Ria has changed into her pjs.
and is eating her hand...and Lulu has changed into her pjs
is engrossed in computerland.The movie is over..
I make them take their baths...
(which they were supposed to do
BEFORE they put their pjs on)
and off they go...
each to their own bed.
This is CuddlyThis is Drooly..
And this is Messy MilkHead...
The morning finds them like magic...
all in one big bed..
in the upstairs guest room...
waking up while Nana
makes her coffee.
(Look how BIG Messy Milkhead looks)
Must be a camera trick The coffee is brewing

and the Three Bears Cereal is cooking

and soon they will come down the steps

with sleepy smiles and good morning kisses.

Do you suppose that someday
they will remember
waking up in a big bed at Nana's house,
smelling coffee brewing...
and oatmeal cooking..
and know how
much they are loved?
I hope so!

Oh yes, they will remember waking up at Grandma's house, the smells the sights, and the sounds are forever ingrained in their memories.
I can remember well, the special times I spent with my paternal grandparents, I have no such memories of my maternal grandparents.
