Sunday coming down...

It's 6:05 Sunday evening and I am reminiscing about the weekend. Weston and Jenna came on Friday to spend the weekend and to finally see Trentin. I love having the kids home, even though it is a lot of work. It just seems like the time flies so quickly and boom...they are gone again. I spend a lot of time playing with babies and cooking. I love to treat the kids to some of their favorites - we always have biscuits and gravy for breakfast at least once. This morning I told Jenna I was thinking of making muffins - I told her I could make blueberry, banana nut and lemon poppyseed (all from a mix) and she asked about the chocolate ones I used to make...the ones that had the fudge in the middle. I dug out the recipe and also ran across the "Holy Cow" recipe. Jenna ran to Bashas and got the ice cream toppings we needed so today we had two old "favorites".

My grand babies are the joy of my life after my kids. Gunnar and Kamryn seem to be a little jealous of the time I spend with the other. On Saturday afternoon both babies needed naps so I went into the little bedroom and laid down with Kamryn and Trentin and Jenna had Bailey and Gunnar in her old room. Gunnar started crying and Jenna said he wanted "ma mo" so I told her I would be in as soon as Kamryn was asleep. I didn't want her waking Trentin up. I could still hear Gunnar crying and when I went in, Jenna told me that he was crying for "ma mo Sadie" - well, how could you NOT let him call you Grandma Sadie...(yes, Sadie is the dog)... I lay on the bed with him until he fell asleep - he kept touching my arm to make sure I wasn't pulling a fast one on him. Oh, I love these babies! I had Kamryn and Gunnar in the tub after Sunday dinner and when I pulled Kamryn's shirt off it hung up on her little ear lobe (she has pierced ears) and it must have pinched a little because she cried just a second. I hugged her and told her I was sorry and looked at both ears again. She felt her little ear and then checked her hands to make sure her ring was still on her finger. She is a "girly" girl...wears a little turquoise ring.

Jenna brought Kamryn a gift when she gave Trentin a gift. My hearing is going and when I was looking at baby Elmo, Jenna told me to "slap its hand" - so I did. Then she told me to "slap his hands together" which I did...guess what she told me to do? "Snap" not slap. Anyway the girls are sure I'm ready for a keeper and they are worried about leaving babies with me unattended. Poor baby Elmo! :(

I made both Bailey and Trentin "fringed" fleece blankets on Saturday. Now I have to finish Trentin's "camo" flannel blanket.

I am getting more organized - slowly but surely. Want to get my house painted before it's time to play outside - guess we'll see how it goes.
