Nana Day with the grandbabies

I had all four of my grands Friday and we had a Valentine craft day, made heart shaped brownies and had ice cream and well, done a little bit of everything! The great thing was that we were not on a time schedule, if we felt like brushing our hair we did and if we didn't...oh well! If we got dirty playing and chocolate on us from the brownies we didn't care! All that will wash out but the memories will be there forever! Grands are 7, 5, 4, & 8 months old. Needless to say...this NANA fell asleep on the couch after everyone went home!!!!
Let the crafts begin!

These two cousins are 20 months apart. One minute they loved each other and the next minute...well, lets just say they would have disagreements! 

 The oldest grandchild is 7 and such a little mama to the others. 

 Yeah, we had glue everywhere! But nothing that GoGone want take off! Love that stuff!

I think I have swept up enough of beads and etc. to have another day of crafts!

While some of the crafts are drying it is time for a break! A pillar fight breaks out with two of grands....YEP, my pillars off my couch!

The baby is so excited just watching them play!

This little craft was dry so we had to get a picture! Even the baby had her own craft!

It is time to make the brownies!!!!

Everybody had to have a part in the brownie making. One cracked the eggs, one added oil and water and one had to do the mixing!
And then the fun part began!!!!! LICKING THE BEATER...AND THE SPOON! 

All I know is THANK the Lord for Spray and Wash!

Time for a little outside play!
 And the 4 year old granddaughter has managed to have a stray dog come to her house so she too found her way to Nana's! 
Her name is Rapunzel by the way! 
Of course Mom and Dad are hoping Rapunzel's owners will claim her soon!
This little one doesn't care what any of them of them are doing. She is just before going to sleep! And she does and sleeps for one hour "just a swinging".  
 Time for more crafts!

Time for a picnic on the porch!

Time to show off some crafts and have brownies and ice cream.

I hope you have enjoyed our Valentine Craft day with us. We sure had lots of fun! 
It is the little things in life that bring the greatest pleasure!
Hugs and blessings,

    Hugs, Beth

  10. Looks like so much fun! Thank you for sharing. Love you bunches! Stephanie Crawford

  11. Your grands are adorable! Looks like so much fun. Hopefully one day I will have grands!

  12. That really looked like so much fun. I'll be glad when my Macey is a little older and we can cook and garden together. Rapunzel looks a little thin. Her owners may not ever come get her. Animal Control will come get her and if she is adoptable (and she certainly seems to be) they will get her healthy and find her a home. Unless you are just going to adopt her. I would. I have four and three were strays that adopted me!!!!

  13. What beautiful grandchildren! Loved seeing your fun day with them. And I understood your nap after they went home! Been there - done that myself!


So glad you stopped by to visit.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
