Last night we babysat Marisa and Megan while Tiff and Gary went to see the Lakers kill the Jazz. John told them they had to bring him back a picture of Kobe Bryant. We are from Southern California so I think I will always be a Lakers fan, regardless of the celebrity lifestyle of some of the players.
|How can you resist this cuteness? I can't.|
|Or this little face? Happy go lucky Megan 2 1/2|
|Marisa Belle with Great Grandma Merlene...Marisa is curious about everything!|
|Snow Days....we had a lot of them!!!|
|Josie Erin 9 months has been crawling and just got 2 new teeth!|
|Marisa helping grandma decorate for Easter....Bruce....not helping.....|
|Let's eat! |
|My little Easter Chicky...Josie age 9 months...|
|Marisa liked the chickie craft|
|My bulletin board....we'll add some pretty eggs to it next week....|
Tiff crochets really well, but I want a tight, cabled look to it, most likely knitting. She bought some giant needles and a cream wool with specks in it. That would looks so pretty draped over a leather couch. I told her she should knit me one just like it for the Bear Lake cabin. We've got brown leather couches there.
|I set up the puppet theatre and John taught the girls how to use the puppets|
|It was totally Marisa's thing....she loves drama!|
Then we went home and Tiff left for the Jazz game. Marisa wanted to watch Felix the Cat. That was always my favorite cartoon when I was a kid. But John was remarking how they portrayed different Asian cultures in the cartoon wouldn't fly at all in today's politically correct climate! I had to agree. Then Marisa started playing this game with us. She noticed that the ottoman has a top that comes off to store stuff inside. She went and found something to hide. Then she said, "Grandpa guess what is inside". Kids all love their dads and grandpa's best. Why is that? So she gives these cute clues. "It is something you wear on your foot before you put your shoes on!" So cute! John guessed "a frog!" and Marisa would giggle. Then we'd go on to guess about 10 ridiculous things before one of us finally got it right. She loved it. We love her. What a doll! Grandkids are the best.
|Megan liked watching the puppeting more than doing it...|
|Grandpa and the oldest of his girls....Marisa Belle|
|Two cute girls in Easter dresses. Love those little polka dots!|
I love them all to pieces. Who knew it would be THIS much fun?
