Wednesday was an 'early out' day from school.
I picked up the Grandlittles and headed to my parents to visit for a bit.
Apparently the visit went on for too long...
...because...all three girls disappeared into the bathroom, giggling.
The oldest popped out once to rummage in a little cabinet that my Mom keeps stationary supplies in.
"Don't come into the bathroom!" she cautioned all of us.
"Julia? Are you getting into trouble in there?"
"No, Grandma, we're just doing something."
And finally Julia returned to the living room to announce, "Close your eyes everyone. I have a surprise for you!"
Moments later we could hear some crazy laughter going on.
All three of them cautioned, "Don't peek! Don't peek!"
Finally Julia told us to open our eyes...
...we saw this...
"Ladies and gentlemen," Julia announced, "I give you...Cotton Ball Girl AND The Tissue Queen."
My parents and I looked at each other in astonishment.
"Julia? How did you stick that to their faces?"
"I got a glue stick out of a Great-Grandmas drawer! Isn't it funny?"
It was funny...
After my Mom leaped up to be sure they hadn't used the permanent glue stick!
What silly girls.
We laughed and admired Cotton Ball Girl and The Tissue Queen and then headed home.
I kept telling Morgan (aka The Tissue Queen) that I needed to blow my nose. I think she rolled her eyes at me, but I'm not totally sure.
And every time I looked at Riley (aka Cotton Ball Girl) I just had to crack up.
Before the garage door had even come down, the two younger girls made a bee-line for Grandpa, who hunted me down immediately. "Is that going to come off? What are they doing?"
"Geez, Grandpa. Keep up! Don't you recognize Cotton Ball Girl and The Tissue Queen when you see them?"
He laughed and took a bunch of pictures of the big transformation.
The Tissue Queen was a bit easier to dismantle then Cotton Ball Girl.
Fortunately we all went swimming after that and all the little bits of glue were dissolved.
While we were swimming I asked Julia, "Well, why didn't you get 'decorated' too?"
"Are you crazy, Grandma! Do you think I would let those two stick things on my face with a glue stick?"
Okay, I've missed them.
Just a teensy bit.
And I'm still laughing over their silly antics.
