Making Happy Memories

We have had our beautiful grandchildren ( four of the five) staying with us for a few days while their parents have been out of town.I love being a Grandma!

The toughest part is getting them all ready for school in the morning (except the youngest he gets to sleep in). Our oldest ( she’s 13) was a breeze, she just gets up and gets in the shower, etc. But, sleepy children move very slowly, LOL :-)

Izzy ( our puppy) did so well with all of the squeals, giggles, running, jumping and energy. It was wonderful. ( blurry..sorry)


The house is quiet now. But we are so very happy we all had so much fun. Reading, homework, sharing meals, bubble baths, movies, laughter and lots and lots of love and cuddles.

I had every intention of taking tons of photos but….we were to busy making memories.:-)

I’m tired but smiling. I hope you had a great week too. What did you do this week? Remember you can still add your link to yesterday blog hop :-)

The giveaway ends in two days please get your entries in. If you don’t have an iphone the wristlet or wallet the prize would make great gift.

The book club is up and running and the new book The Inn at Rose Harbor is the book we are reading. Join us!

Hoping your weekend is a sweet one.

  1. Aww…sounds like a wonderful time. I am getting ready for my grand kids to come over this morning. It’s always so much fun. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Hi Katy. Wonderful times indeed my friend! Izzy is just so very cute! I’ve got Eli and Ruby coming to sleep this evening, and they will be with us tomorrow, so looking forward to making lots of memories as well. We have to make the most of these times, because they just grow up so quickly. Hugs.

  3. Girl, I hear you on that! Mornings come so early. (and I’m not a morning person, that’s when I’m heading TO bed) By the time you add kids and school, whoa, it can be overwhelming! Glad you made some great memories, even if you didn’t have time for photos. I totally understand!

    My girls do the mismatched socks, too!

  4. Hi, Katie! These are surely Norman Rockwell moments captured by your camera. It’s wonderful to see Izzy joining in the fun as the kids took a bubble bath. As for me it’s been a bittersweet week as we are saying “goodbye” to very good friends on my blog – a person and a place.

  5. Looks like fun! The kids must be excited too. I love the bathtub photo!

    Have a great weekend :)

  6. Great pictures of the “Grands”! I love my little grand daughter and have so much fun with her too; can’t wait to find out what the next one will be in a couple of months!

  7. what a wonderful post! those kids are too cute, along with your sweet dog. What great memories

  8. These are really special moments to savor. It looked like they had fun.


  9. Aw, what fun! So glad you were blessed with time with them! Precious!

  10. Soap bubble hair is so much fun, isn’t it? The last time I let the dog in the bathroom when I was soaking in the tub (with my eyes closed) he jumped in! Glad your dog didn’t do that because it’s a mighty surprise! :)

  11. MixedMolly says:

    Being grandparents like that is really a blessing to your children, and your grandchildren :)

  12. Sounds like you all had fun!

  13. Love that first shot of the feet :)

  14. I do love being a Grandma, too — it’s pretty darn near the *best*!! Sounds like y’all had a lovely time and made lots of those wonderful memories!! Hey — do you have any openings for co-host for Favorite Things Thursday? I’d love to help out one week, if you do. Have a marvelous day and weekend!! Hugs! :)

  15. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to spend time with your grandkids. They bring so much excitement and fun. I remember keeping mine after school, on weekends and during the summer what fun we had and oh how tired we were at the end of each day. HAH Great memories for sure!

    Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you get rested up!

  16. Oh, my…my! Katie, I just love the photos, so clever and creative! I’m with you about tired but still smiling, I too had all 4 of my grandchildren this week, but not over night. just during the day…ages; 6-11.
    Love all the photos, and your sweet pup really looks very comfortable, and having all the fun with the kids, as well!
    Thanks for sharing…will link up now, thinking I was too late!
    Have a wonderful weekend:) xoxo

  17. Awwwww, memories beat photos anyhow!

  18. Good for Izzy helping out at bath time! I know what you mean about trying to get grandkids out for the bus on time! I did it for a couple of weeks when my daughter was sick. Where are all the mitts!!! lol

  19. What great grandparents you are — I know that had to be alot of work too.

    Love Izzy — so cute. :)

  20. Absolutely wonderful memory making going on here…wishing you a beautiful weekend, xoxo, Hugs

  21. memories is what they are going to remember…are theirs to keep

  22. I bet Izzy likes having the little ones around as much as they like Izzy.

    The pics are great, all of them. :)

  23. You are truly blessed.

  24. Having grandchildren sound like so much fun. You love them, laugh with them, are worn out by them and send them home. If I ever survive having teenagers I hope to enjoy grandchildren some day far in the future.

  25. Awwww, I just love that picture of all their little feet! So precious. Sounds like a wonderful week, for sure.

    Katherine, I love your blog, and will be following along as a new Bloglovin’ follower. I’m so glad that you found “this little light” through Paula’s hop, and I’m thrilled that I found you right back!

    Enjoy your Sunday!

  26. Thanks for visiting my blog & following. I am happy to check out you blog & I am now following via GFC.


  27. aww, so fun! I have always had a hard time getting up, but if I was at my grandparents’ house I would make sure to get up and ready! :)

    Glad you had fun


  28. Glad you had so much fun with your grandkids. Ours are coming for the night in about 15 hours. We’ve got books to read and stories to tell. A little different from your gang, but it will be good.

    Thanks for visiting Bear at his Den.
