Finish It Up Friday- Five From RIDING WITH NANA

Last weekend I had all three girls sleep over.
On Saturday morning, Ria had to go to dance.
That meant I was left with 
Thing One & Thing Two.
Thing One 
CANNOT KEEP HER HANDS OFF MY CAMERA!

We are riding along and she is taking selfies
and giving her sister
DIRECTIONS.

SweetCheeks!  Smile for the Camera
OK
Sweet Cheeks- Make a FISH FACE.
OK
SweetCheeks-Do it again-Another smile.
NO!
Come on, SweetCheeks-
I'm taking your picture anyway!
I SAID NO- Lulu!
I'm not going to even look at you!
Okay- SweetCheeks.  Just one more 
and I'll leave you alone!
Show us what you feel like 
when you have to ride 
in the car when PAPA is driving!
And now you know why
I DO NOT RIDE WITH PAPA!
That is EXACTLY how I feel!

And while they were doing this:
Our dancer was doing this-
praying before performing-
Happy Friday!
Hope you have a great weekend!

Love these. That is how I feel when I ride with my 90-year-old mother. It's actually more a look of sheer terror. Lol

Love these selfies, they remind me so much of my daughters! Not to mention my oldest takes my phone and leaves me a ton of her selfies with goofy faces, always makes me laugh! Have a wonderful day!

Diana, is that last picture of Ria, I love that? The way her eyes are closed and praying, her diamond earrings, her hairdo, and the way the light is peeking through the window..........it's such a special picture. Oh, and those girls in the car are silly. :~) Love it all, Diana.

Diana girl ... I do hope your friend finds comfort and peace with her journey home.
I do so appreciate this funny post with your grand-girls ... it made me laugh so much .. and to know why so many of you do NOT want to drive with a certain grandfather ? too funny ! .. love that face.
The beautiful dancer is one thoughtful gorgeous girl .. I am sure she must have done so well !
This weather is driving me close to the edge ... explains the "slip" on the dove threesome ? haha
Fingers crossed we will all see some better temperatures and be able to play in our gardens SOON ? !!!!
Take care girl !
