Family Day

I've been going to my daughter's to help with the children, cooking, and anything else she needs for several weeks now.  She's sleep deprived and since she had a C-section, she's not to lift the older children for another two weeks so her in-laws and I have been taking turns helping out.  Trying to think up activities for a toddler and a pre-schooler can be challenging!  I decided it's time my granddaughter learns to sew so I made a trip to JoAnn's and got some plastic canvas and plastic needles.  Be warned if you decide to do this that the blue plastic needles are just a smidge bigger than the holes in the plastic canvas and need a good tug to get them through.  Luckily, she has a good grip!  She said this will be a blanket for one of her dolls.

Sewing is serious work!

Her brother wanted to show me his Elmo socks but wouldn't pull his pants up enough to see the picture.

Aren't these great stripes?

And of course here's Abigail - one month today!

Baby sleeping - rarely seen!


  1. Sounds like my place, DD just had baby number three by c-section last week and also has a 19 month and 4 1/2 so lots to do and help
    Your grand children are lovely

  2. Oh, just so sweet - treasured moments.

  3. Glorious pictures. What a lot of work with 3 littlies.

  4. What beautiful grandchildren!!! It's wonderful that you and the 'in-laws' are in a position to help out. Keeping up with little folks is a lot of work, but I sure miss having a baby in our family. I'm just going to have to be patient and wait for the 'great-grands' to arrive.

  5. Such sweet grandchildren. You will need a retreat whenyou get home!

  6. such little blessings and the one sewing is going to be a quilter I believe!!
