What Goes On at Grandma's House?

Had a sleepover with my darling little granddaughters and thought I would share some of the fun with you. I have been volunteered to do face painting, or paint facing as Ashleigh says, at a church event this Sunday. I needed some volunteers to practice on so I twisted the girls arms to get them to comply. :)





Olivia made ears to go with her puppy face.


Paw prints.


After paint facing we went to the grocery so the girls could show off their new look to the public and because we wanted ice cream. Olivia and I got our favorite, Mocha Almond Fudge, and the little ones opted for ice cream sandwiches.

We came home, ate chicken quesadillas and ice cream for desert, took baths, played on the computer, read a story and about midnight they were wiped out. I let them stay up late since it was Friday and we had no real need for a schedule. :)

Did I wear 'em out good or what?






Saturday activities included fire cracker poppers. See how the decorated my rose bush?


More paint facing.





Thanks for joining us!

You know, they glow anyway--those granddaughters of yours--but their paint jobs are gorgeous! The pastel glow is surreal and yet really stunning. Such fun for girls to wear. I agree with CK about that butterfly!

What a fabulous weekend you all had. I still need to get some ice cream out sometime....
