WARNING...Shameless grandparent post

 My son and his wife wanted to paint this weekend, it was a big job so we offered our help. We were told the best way we could help was to take some of the children. My oldest granddaughter wanted to stay and help paint and the baby is too little to be away from mama too long so it was decided the two middle children would come over to our house. To make things even easier for everyone, we would make it a sleepover and exchange at church the next morning.

No real plans, we just hung out at the house. Kids played with their toys, then we watched a movie, they helped Pop Pop with some chores and to make the evening a little special we did smores My husband said his favorite part of the weekend was when he took "Big Guy" to the grocery store. I had sent them out to buy the ingredients needed for smores, husband said grandson helped him buy just the right brand of what was needed and talked nonstop the entire trip.

A great way to spend a fall weekend. We know we are blessed and do not take it for granted for a second.

Hi there, I see that we share so many things-firstly our Lord but also life with grandkids. They bring such joy to life and I cherish each minute spent with ours. I am delighted you stopped by my place and I'm going to read on. Blessings to you this week.

Your grandchildren are just
beautiful. If I had any I
would probably be making
everyone tired of all the
pictures I would be showing
on a daily basis. Can't wait
for my turn. You share those
pictures and stories any time
you want. There are plenty of
us out here who want to see

How WONDERFUL Maryann!! What special memories you made with your precious grandchildren!! I'm not sure who has more fun at those *sleepovers*...the *big* people or the *little* people. ;-)

Blessings to you!

Ah, clearly a win/win/win situation. Mom and Dad got to pain uninterrupted, Grandparents got to spoil and enjoy the little ones all weekend.

And the third win? Why that's the kids, of course. My favorite memories are of days spent with my grandma!

Super sweet and there's NO shame in a grandma bragging on her grandbabies.
