Sunday Funnies

No, this is not a Halloween post. It all started when the whole family was over for Sunday dinner last night. Miss C. showed me her new shoes, which resembled gold egyptian sandals, then proceeded to ask, "Nana, will you get your dress-up boxes down so I can dress like Cleopatra?"

Of course, Thing One and Thing Two (hee-hee) wanted to get in on the action too. : )
Notice silly Mr. S. with his Doctor's Bag AND one Mickey Mouse glove!!!

Little Miss G decided to try her hand as chief Chef.

It was Aunt Sara who suggested I get the dough hook from my mixer when Mr. S decided to play Pirate. So cute! : )
What would this world be like without children? I never want to find out. :
Excuse This House
"Some houses try to hide the fact
that children shelter there.
Ours boasts of it quite openly,
the signs are everywhere.
For smears are on the windows,
little smudges on the door,
I should apologize I guess
for the toys strewn on the floor.
But I sat down with the children
and we laughed and played and read.
And if the doorbell doesn't shine,
their eyes will shine instead.
For when at times I'm forced to
choose the one job or the other,
I want to be a housekeeper,
but first I'll be a Mother."
Author Unknown
Offered to all the young mommies out there from this little "Nana". : )

Thank you for visiting my blog. I love the pictures of the littles playing dress up. I keep jewelry and old clothes too for them. But I only have 2 left to play. They grow up too soon. We will soon have our first grandchild wedding. We will get to dress up as grandparents of the bride. I would like to return for a visit.
Blessings to you and family

Don't you wish you knew then what you know now? I should've enjoyed my kids a little more. We were always so busy and the time goes by so fast and then they're gone! What happened? Love that poem. I'll save it for a future lesson or something. Your grandkids are almost as cute as mine! Mimi

What fun pictures of all your grandchildren. Love the poem too. They grow up so quickly.

Joy said...

It's such a blessing to have grandchildren! It gives us a second chance to enjoy what we were too busy to enjoy with our own kids.
That poem is such great advice. I loved it as a momma, but truly appreciate it as a nonnie.

I apologize for missing your 100th post. Congratulations!!! And here's to 100 more!!!

Chiki Cottage said...

Oh My! This poem is for me. Thanks so much. My house it exactly as described. So many little finger prints everywhere and Im never done cleaning but I wouldnt change all those little finger prints. I will miss them dearly when they are gone. But I hope they are replaced by my grandchildrens finger prints..... :)

They are so cute. You are blessed. Children can bring us great joy and great heartache.

If I had to do it all over again I would have had more children, but don't tell my hubby. HA! HA!

Thanks for visiting from Paula's blog. What a cute post today. Dress up was always so much fun (not nearly as much for me these days!!!) I hate to wear "real" clothes! Your grandkids are precious and very creative. These memories are priceless.
