Awfully Sweet and Silly Faces, Art and Arrows

It's Monday.

I'm not sure where the weekend went and if, indeed, there was really a weekend at all.

We had a Grandparents Day celebration with our middle Grandlittle on Friday, Grandlittles on Friday night, a big garage sale on Saturday, soccer and basketball games and an Anniversary celebration.

I need another weekend.

Today.

But instead, I just got a Monday...

...sigh...

I'm going to share a few pictures of my non-weekend weekend with you, though, just so I feel like I'm actually doing a 'real' post!

From Grandparents day...

Sweet faces...our middle Grandlittle is in the bright blue dress...



Silly faces...




This Grandlittle is also super artistic...


And then when she was at the house she came up with the idea of making a little barn for a tiny penguin to live in...and made it all by herself...





While the penguin housing project was going on, the oldest grandlittle helped me make signs for our neighbor's garage sale on Saturday.

The youngest, Mo, wanted to help, too.

I told her to practice writing the word 'sale' and then she could write on some of the arrows. The top one is her work of art...



...when her Grandpa told her he couldn't read the letters she said, "Does that really matter Grandpa? Look how pretty it is!"

I think I'm inclined to agree with her.

And now...

I'm off.

I'm going to pretend all day that it's not Monday...

...which is only fair because I have absolutely no idea where the weekend actually went.

As I read this, Monday is nearly over - where did the day go?
Seeing your little red heads makes me miss my one little red head and one little blondie SOOOOO much!

Looks like fun.

Same here, not sure where the weekend went. Had 1/2 of our grands this weekend for a visit. Made Hobo pies over a campfire, rootbeer floats, played Uno, played computer games, had two artist's drawing on their new pads of paper, watched movies and I could not even crochet last night after they went home I was so tired. Now it is 12:30 P.M and I am finishing canning some tomato sauce that I should have worked on this weekend. It was Monday all day long. Your little grands are adorable!

Gattina said...

How sweet ! I have to wait a little to be celebrated, my grandson is just 9 month old, lol !

I'm so glad you live close enough to be able to attend these 'events.'

Julia is artistic! That she did the barn project herself is fantastic.

And Mo' has innate ability to convey attitude to the camera like some of the super models do. She cracks me up!

None of Riley. Shame on you! :)

Theresa said...

Precious faces! I love those silly ones:) Creative little mind to make that tiny penguin house... future home designer!

Have a blessed day dear Jenny, HUGS!

Willoughby said...

You really did have a busy weekend!

The penguin house is adorable! She is quite a creative girl! I love the sale arrow, too (and I agree that it's so pretty you don't have to be able to read it)!

I wasn't nearly as busy and I still think the weekend went by far too quickly. I'm starting a petition for two day work weeks and five day weekends. Wanna sign it??

Melinda Cornish said...

pretty really does matter! forget the words.....they are dolls, you are so lucky.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You have the sweetest grand daughters, Jenny! I know you enjoy every second you share with them.

The weeks fly by too fast -- I can not believe that autumn is almost here!
