What Happens At Grandmas












Last weekend three out of our five grandchildren stayed with us for a sleepover. Although my picture taking was limited I did manage to grab a few photos in between making happy memories.

While the girls were upstairs Noah spent some time with his Grandpa. I missed the shot of them both holding up the newspaper. Noah reading the funnies right next to Grandpa reading the sports. It was priceless.

We all had a nice dinner of yummy tacos. Everyone helped to prepare it.


Then it was time to snuggle up and enjoy a movie. It sounds simple, but we thought it was Fab-u-lous!

It the morning it was bath time and Noah brought his goggles for under water adventures in the jetted tub.

We all enjoyed  a nice breakfast, of cereal fruit, and a variety of drinks. Including strawberry milk! I bet you didn’t know you could get milk from a strawberry, giggle.


Instead of making a craft this time we decided to bake cookies. Soy nut butter cookies ( the recipes is HERE)  and snickerdoodles.

We all had a wonderful time. We did have one accident. Other than that it was perfect!

Now it’s time for the weekend again, where did the week go?

This weekend I’ll be making happy memories with my sweet hubby. What will you be doing?

  1. The bathtub picture is so cute! We use to have a grandma in town when my kids were young and we slept over a lot! Made me remember good times…thanks!

  2. You snapped some terrific shots of your lovely grandchildren, Katie, and it appears that a great time was had by all! Have a wonderful weekend!

    This is a fabulous post! It is awesome that your grandkids had such a great time and only one accident occurred! Have a great weekend sweet Kat!

  4. Too cute! I love the little title of this one, and you took some great pictures!

  5. You take great photos. I lost both grandmothers years ago so now all I have are memories.

  6. Great pictures! How great that you got to have them all spend the night. My mom would do anything to have a night like this with her grandkids!

  7. I miss the grandkids’ sleepovers! Ours have moved away and most are too old now. It was the most fun!
    Hugs, GraceinAZ

  8. Except for the one oopsie, that looks to have been a pretty wonderful weekend! You sure entertain them in the best ways.

  9. Looks like a lot of fun at Grandma’s. Cookies look yummy. Sorry about the Jim Shore Angel. Hopefully it glued together for you.

  10. This weekend it will be me doing the babysitting, again. I have my doubts there will be any picture-taking moments, since the baby keeps me hoppin’, and I can pretty much guarantee that capturing the moments would make a lousy photo… unless it was for a copy of a horror magazine… or, entered into the evidence file, when they burn me at the stake!

  11. Hi Katherine, following you on the new Linky tool! I cannot figure out where you find the direct link to Linky at so I have been having to give my blog address and let everyone follow from the widget that is there underneath GFC. Thanks!

  12. I’m craving tacos now!! Just stopping by from the Linky Party Hop. I hope you will visit http://www.laughterandgrace.com and follow back.

  16. I was drawn to your “what happens at grandma’s stays at grandma’s” My daughter is two and I think this will be her motto once she gets old enough. I found you through sassy sites link party. I’m your newest follower. Stop by http://www.thenymelrosefamily.blogspot.com and check me out.

    You are NOT old enough to have grandkids! (Course … neither am I but I still have 6 of the little buggers!)

  18. What wonderful pictures! It sounds like fun at Grandma’s house. And making cookies to boot. Happy to share you fun.

  19. What a lovely time you had with the grandchildren, and super photos for us to look at . Aren’t grandchildren the best thing in the world ?! Such blessings. Loved the “what happens …. ” quote at the beginning! Hugs my friend .

  20. This was so much fun, I know your grandkids had such a good time. We do enjoy our grands don’t we? Saw this on Heidi’s Country Homemaker Blog that she is allowing me to co host.
    Have a great weekend!

  21. Sweet grandma’s post. But as I was going through it, I wondered who wrote it. You are NOT old enough to have all those grandchildren 😉

  22. I found you via the Linky hop and have become your newest follower. Hope you have a chance to visit my blog and perhaps follow me back.

  23. There is no doubt about it. Staying at Grandma’s house is a wonderful thing! Looks like everyone had a good time and lots of fun!

    Happy weekend Katherine!

  24. Fun, fun, fun! I love the goggles for underwater adventure. I can see the newspaper pic even though you missed it.l We had one granddaughter sleep over last night. We played a game called fast track and then watched a Robin Hood BBC series (2 episodes) and played Solitare on the Ipad. I stitched on a bit of embroidery between Solitaire turns. Grnadies are the best! I grew up on Strawberry milk. Mom always bought it because we were not chocolate milk lovers. Sure hope the little lady can get put back together.

  25. oh my gosh, I ask how it went, it was a wonderful time. thanks for sharing hugs and kisses to you my dear friend.

  30. PRECIOUS post!! The number of my grandchildren will soon DOUBLE when my daughter gives birth to quadruplets in late spring (hopefully!) I am so looking forward to meeting them. YOUR grandchildren are adorable!

  31. Katherine!! Thank you for all the support you give with your 1+ my googles!!! your awesome!!

  32. What a great post Katharine!
    I am sorry that your lil’ heartwood creek angel had to take one for the team, but it was certainly worth her sacrifice. The kids are adorable. It looks like they had the time of their lives, and Grandma and Grandpa did too. You should consider linking up to A Rural Journal’s Your Sunday Best photo hop here- http://www.aruraljournal.com/2012/02/your-sunday-best-and-giveaway-winner.html. You are a really good photographer and the shot of Noah in the bubbles and goggles is out of this world cute.

  33. Aw, she can be glued. Just think of the memories when you spy that crack in her dress. 😉 Looks like it was a blast–for all!

  34. what a fun weekend. Lots of smiles and good food! visiting from the weekend blog hop! love your blog!

  35. How fun!!!! Love the bath picture! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

    weekend with grandchildren, I’ve got to get my daughter and SIL to get with the
    program though! How nice for all of you. Hey, we had tacos last night!
    I see you have Toki’s photo on your blog roll, isn’t he big? You should see the
    puppy picture of him, he’s knocking people down now if he likes you he wants to jump on top of you!!
