A Little Bit of Everything
We had a great weekend with the grandchildren. We kept 2 of the grandchildren on Friday night so my "sweet daughter and SIL" could have a date night. I thought it was so sweet for my SIL to plan this. On Saturday, we went to my grandaughter, Alyssa's basketball game. She did so good. We were so proud of her. Then we went to one of our favorite restaurants -Pappasitos- the best Mexican food you will ever eat. It is in Atlanta, Ga. which is about an hour & a half away. My SIL Bryan says he would'nt drive that far for a burrito.......the funny thing is that he is the biggest eater in our family. But I do understand - they have 3 children so I probably wouldn't like driving in a car that long with 3 bored children either. Triston, my oldest grandaughter begged to go with us and she usually gets her way with me so she ended up spending the night and staying most of the day today. She put a few pictures on her blog about our trip to Atlanta. After church she wanted to sew...... she made a pillow and a small siggy block. I was actually trying to tweak my siggy block and the next thing I knew Triston was on her sewing machine making one. She really does do good at sewing. She catches on really fast. Alyssa gets to stay overnight with us next time and then little Brett. I have to space them out because Gran gets very tired!!!! I do like getting one at a time though. It is a lot easier than all of them together. Its funny - I raised 4 children and never thought that I wouldn't be able to keep 3 children all at one time but it really wears me out. I love them so much though. I love spending quality time with them. Did you notice how my newest grandson has grown? He is over 10 lbs now! Wonder when he will get to stay overnight?? I bet not too soon! His Mommy & Daddy are pretty attached. My SIL, Dusty (Baby Davis's daddy) told us that he never imagined you could love this deep but since this baby has been born that he is amazed. It was a great, but very busy weekend. Grandchildren are blessings from the Lord.
