Guess who is spending the night?

We have a couple of visitors....can you guess who they are?
And can you guess what we did this evening?


As always, my photos enlarge.
I was going to show several photos, but then just settled for this quick sequence of three.
I really think you will like them better if you enlarge them....
she was not the only one with a smile on her face. On the way home, her papaw looked at me and said he had not stopped smiling since they got here. And neither had I....and my mouth was almost hurting from smiling and laughing so hard at some of her actions and words.

The first thing, when I looked out and saw their car, I went out the back door to meet them and here she came being a dragon. Then Sarah told us she had asked her before they left if she wanted to go see Mamaw and Papaw and she just said 'No' in this real calm voice....and in a minute or two she again ask her if she wanted to come see us...that time she wanted to come see Mamaw and Papaw's toys! and come see Mamaw's chair and Papaw's chair!

I cannot remember all she has said and done....we came to this stop sign on the way home. Her Papaw stopped at it of course...and she says "GO! Go, Papaw!"...so he really stepped on the gas and she said, "Papaw, you're like my daddy!"

I try to keep Klondike bars here when she is going to be coming, and always when we are trying to get her settled for the night, I go get a Klondike bar and we share it. I unwrap it and put it in a bowl and walk in. She was sitting back in this little rocker thing. I sat down and did not say anything...she was watching TV...all she had to do was turn her head to see me with the bowl.

I rattled the spoon two or three times and she did not turn around....I was debating just getting up and walking across the room and Papaw walked in and bent down and said something to her. She turned to say something back to him and saw me with the bowl. I don't think I have ever seen her move as quick to get up out of the rocker! Her mom and I cracked up...

She is so precious. The video is darling. Someone should put a line and hook on that fishing rod for her so she doesn't have to beat the fish to death! ;)))

You know what I did? I created an email address and I sent short messages with the smallest things that I would forget in the future. Things like always having Klondike bars for her, little things she said, what her smile looked like. I'd write to them and say that they came over for supper before church and got into a fight about pickles...just little things like that. That way, it is easy to jot down or sit and just type out one or two sentences and they're just for her in the future. Give her mom the email address and password of course.

I love the video!!! Just a simple big stick emitting such squeals of joy!!! Too funny when she loses her balance and plops down! The first picture is my favorite! Quality time with our grandkids is just the BEST!!!

Lorelei has the cutesy laugh. I like the picture sequence you've shared. I think you have even more fun than Lorelei has.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

What fun she is! This is such a wonderful age. Enjoyed this post, Rose. :)

Since I was visiting I just had to come over here and check on Lorelei Rose. She is precious, that giggle is so cute, but the 3 photos are even better. That smile!

Mine are also growing. Mason is 3 1/2, Noah 2 and Audrey 1 1/2. Boy, they are a handful when they are all here at the same time.

Love the video and photos :-) She is just the very picture of "summer" and all the joy that can be found in it. I'd be smiling, too.
