Granddaughter Days

Our Granddaughters came for a visit this past week. Pookie got all ready! I always say that I don't know who they are more excited to or Pookie!! He managed to get these bows out before they got here. The groomer thought they would stay in for a few days. Huh!

I can not show up empty handed. We stopped on the way and bought these stuffed animals. I put them in the seat belts and when the girls went to get in the car, they got a surprise!

We have several "rituals". One of them is TEA. They love to go to tea. We get all dressed up and have a wonderful time.

When they get here, I let them use my camera and take pictures the whole trip. It's pretty interesting to see what they photograph! Then the last day, I help them make memory books with a colored paper cover and plain paper inside bound with ribbons. Then we bring markers, scissors, glue and stickers on the ride to take them home. I let them choose a certain number of the pics that they each took and get them printed. The ride home goes so fast for them as they work to finish their books. Then just before I hand them over, they show their books to me (I love to video tape this!). This year's highlights were: Aunties Birthday party, going to tea and watching Avatar. We also painted tote bags. I think both of them have more pictures of our dogs and cats in their books than anything else!!

I was so tired that I was ready for the trip to be over and get back to my quiet life. Then...just as soon as they drove off (we meet halfway), I felt sad and was missing them!! Boo Hoo. Until next time.



  1. oh what a special time!! I love this.
    We have 6 granddaughters from 1 yr to 8 yrs and two live in alaska, one in hawaii and three near seattle 5 hours from us.
    It makes us so very sad they are all far away.
    We try to visit as often as possible but alaska and hawaii are a little far away.
    we do have one grandson 1 yr as well...we are oma and opa

  2. Stephanie, you look waaaaay too young to be a grandma, especially to grandchildren this old!

    I loved seeing the pictures of you and the girls at tea and the scrapbook idea is sheer genius!
