Had to put up a pic of the Bootiful little lady who played at our house today. This may be the only Halloween picture we see. Olivia wants nothing to do with her costume. Mommy and daddy have been trying hard to convince her that it is fun to wear a costume, but so far she is standing firm in her decision. When her dear daddy was young he was absolutely terrified of anything in a costume, so maybe it is genetic ;o)
Olivia loves reading books with Grandpa Andy (or anybody that will read) but this particular time was a classic stall for nap time. I told her we would read two stories then naptime. She insisted on getting out every friend she could find (one at a time) and lining them all up for story time. Even "Horsey names Zebra" got to sit on Grandpa's shoulder.
Edited to add: I just noticed the "tell-tale" oreo cookie crumbs around her mouth... ooops! Maybe chocolate cookies for lunch gave her too much energy to need a nap :o)
We didn't get to keep Olivia on Monday, so we are anxiously waiting for Friday. This week seems to be dragging on FOREVER!!! Grammy is very exhausted happy when the house has toys strewn all around and a noisy girlie running, and singing and giggling! I thought I might have to pull up the Snuggle Puppy video or Five Little Monkeys Jumpin' on the Bed tonight just to make it through...but decided to post a picture instead. Better rest up, Friday is just around the corner ;o)
About me--hummmmmm... I have been married for 35 years to the most wonderful, godly man. It is truly my joy to be his wife. We have two awesome kids--both grown and married to pretty terrific spouses. I am the secretary at our church and handle the Women's ministry. The most exciting part of my life is being grandma to our beautiful, spunky grand kiddos Olivia Grace, Ella Faith, Jacob Thomas, and Harrison Andrew. It is so much fun to have little ones in our house from time to time--and a blessing to savor the quiet again when they go home! Being grammy continues to bring a special kind of joy to my life that I can't quite explain and wouldn't trade for anything in the world!
