On Tuesday, Ted and I picked up Emma, Savannah and Skylar. Took them to lunch.
They chose the Dan The Man's Taco Stand. A little café in Rossville. Serves Mexican food and ice cream. What more would kids want? It was an enjoyable morning with all of them. Skylar will be driving soon and he talked rides with Papaw. The girls talked about Savannah's cat's new kittens. We all went to the barn and looked at them. There were four of them. Little gray and white balls of fur...so cute.
Emma brought over her modeling clay, made by Crayola. This is all she has made with it. Emma and Savannah are going to be very good artists. They are my crafters too.
Emma stayed the night and will be again tonight. Here she is helping papaw eat his snacks. Some pretzels and peanuts. :):) When she first starting sharing papaw's chair she only reach above his elbow...now it's all that chair can do to hold them both.
On the way home with Emma , we stopped at the lumber yard for some project lumber. I like the office sign. It's a big saw blade.
Have to show a picture of Sam coming to greet me. Do not get near that tail, he can really whack you with it...cause he is always excited to have company.
Here is the queen's Anne lace that turned red in the food coloring. You can see the other bouquet in the background and it is still white. So the food coloring really did work.
Going to do a bit of clothing shopping with Emma...school clothes. I'll give Savannah and Skylar money to do their own shopping. Well with their mother that is.
Wishing all a good day. XO
Looks like a great bunch of kids, enjoy.ReplyDelete
Thank you Janet, They are good kids. They are the only ones we have left in school now. Except for Jake taking some classes here and there. I have always tried to help with clothes or school books. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
beautiful kids, that queens ann lace is beautiful, never heard of doing that!!!!ReplyDelete
clothes shopping is not something I like to do!! But kids do,, well girls do, my son hated shopping!
Laurie, When My own were small...I shopped thru the J.C.Penney catalog...easy. The teen years were the tough ones. Now Sky and Savannah are teens ..just barely and Emma is eleven going on teen. LOL. I try to tell all kids...pick your basics and then accessorize. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love what she's made with the clay. I have a new package and wish you could help me with it! lol You have such sweet grands! Hugs!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Diane. I love each and everyone of them. Savannah is the shiest kid ever...hope she can come out of it for 7th grade. Emma is not as shy. Skylar is a motor head..love repairing things. I had never seen that clay before and it's not oily at all...although I made Emma roll it on a sheet of white paper. LOL.Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Your young clay artist is talented! Keep promoting that. Love the items she made! Have a wonderful day, Suzie.ReplyDelete
Thank you Judy. I hope the girls will stick with art. Savannah signed up for choir again...that pleases me because she's so shy...I think it will help her. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Your Emma with her Papa in the chair makes me think of our Kate with Grandpa in his chair. Jack and I are beginning to squish each other, too. That's cool about the food color and flowers.ReplyDelete
Kate and I are going shopping together tomorrow, too. Fun, fun. I think I will see about getting her some modeling clay.
Your kids are all growing up!
Nonnie, I could and have cried about how quickly my grandkids are growing. Skylar's driving just makes me feel super old. LOL. I like shopping with Emma , till she just thinks I want to spend hundreds on her...LOL. Wishing you and your Kate a fun time tomorrow. xoxo,SusieDelete
Great photos and a fun day! The kids are sure growing up! Love the tinted queen anne's lace. I will have to try that with different colors! Blue and purple! I wish we had a taco/ ice cream place. That sounds like a good thing.ReplyDelete
Tete, I feel sad when I think of my grands all growing up. I know it has to happen...but does it have to be so fast. LOL. I think Emma wants to do some lace too...she wants purple. Hope you can keep cool today. It is very humid out here. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Nice to spend time with the grandchildren..Good for all of you..We had Lads once..Those tails are deadly..They can clean off a coffee table with one swipe..Stay cool Susie..ReplyDelete
Missy, I did truly enjoy our time with the children. You truly get it about Sam's big long tail...he can hurt almost knock you off your feet. Hope you had a good day. I am enjoying Emma , being here for a couple days. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie, always happy to hear of good times with the grands. They grow so quickly and we have to treasure all the time we can now..Happy Wednesday..JudyReplyDelete
Thank you Judy. I am so glad to hear from you today. I thought of you last night and said a prayer for all of you there. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie, I was real curious about the Queen Anne's Lace and the food coloring. wow, it really does work! School shopping, oh how fun for the kids. I remember love going school shopping, although my mom made most of my clothes. This is such a good picture of Ted and Emma. You should frame this one, Susie.ReplyDelete
Sheri, That granddaughter makes us laugh... she had put her big sleep shirt on and wrapped a fluffy throw around herself and came into the living room and said , "Oh snacks, papaw !" Then she jumped into the chair with him . I try to get the grands to understand that they need some basic clothing items and them just add a few pop pieces to that wardrobe. I love knowing my girls had some nice things to start school in. It was not always easy...but we did it. Blessings, Love you, SusieDelete
Hi Susie, Your grands are great! What a joy to spend time with them and thanks for sharing them with us! Those clay projects turned out so cute! I appreciate you sharing the colored Queen Anne's lace. Very pretty! Wishing you guys a restful evening!ReplyDelete
Thank you Mildred. Emma did a couple clay sculpture and then did some drawings. She truly is becoming very good in art. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
I was glad to see another pic of the Queen Anne's lace. It turned out very pretty! Looks like the grand kids had fun. They are all such cute kids, and talented with clay, too!ReplyDelete
Cheryl, Thank you, I do enjoy being with the grands when I can. They are getting older and would rather be with friends most often. That's the sad part. I had fun try that food coloring trick.Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Love the Queen Anne's lace and your other flowers.ReplyDelete
Sorry, I posted too soon. What a fun day you must have had with the Grands!! They grow way too fast don't they? I have to agree with you they are really artist!ReplyDelete
Thank you Gert. I enjoy the kids. I wish I could keep them little longer. :) I had fun with the food coloring and lace. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
