Spending the weekend with a Grandchild

I spent the weekend with my 4 and 1/2 (they learn about that half so young while we are trying to forget it) year old granddaughter Anna.
This sweet little girl in the picture reminds me of her. She has long brown hair and a beautiful smile. She also showed up with striped leggings a long sleeve top with a pretty pink dress. I know to a lot of you that is everyday. But not for me you see I raised 2 wonderful boys. And I mean all boys frogs, rocks, holes in the knees of their pants after a days play and stinky feet! Mind you I would not change a thing or ask for it to be any different. But now I am blessed with 2 sweet granddaughters. And what a blessing to get to buy dresses, ruffle socks, and anything pink. Thank you Lord!
Her Paw paw and I took her to the movies to see the Princes and the frog. We had a great time. As the movie got to be a little long for her she climbed into my lap to finish watching it. ( Oh yeah Heaven) She loves fruity candies so she had a box of Skittles and ate it all. Then we took her out for Mexican Food she loves cheese cascades, yes a Mexican cheese sandwich. And yes anything she wants. Then we went home and she ate two bowls of chocolate chip ice cream. Please don't tell her Mom.
She is so tiny. I do understand how they burn so much energy, never sitting still. Wouldn't it be nice to have the same blessing when we get older. Yes we burn it when we move but it takes so much more moving. It makes me tired just thinking about it.
Thank you for letting me share my weekend with my granddaughter with you. Until next time. Carol

  2. Hi, Carol,
    Thank you for sharing your lovely weekend with your sweet granddaughter!! I know she had the time of her life. I raised two sons, too, and I know what you mean about these girls who love frilly and pink. I have 4 granddaughters and 2 grandsons, and they light up my whole life. Thank you for coming by for a visit. Have a lovely week! Vicki
