Grimmlin Fun

We surely did enjoy having the Hoover Grimmlins visit us on Saturday. They arrived just in time for lunch( Happy Meals at their request). We also had Krispy Kreme donuts as that is a favorite of Baylor Man. He always expects Grandpa to have some donuts for him.

After lunch, Grandpa, Uncle Ben, Margaret and Elliott went to see Landon play basketball. Landon must have been motivated by all the family cheering him on because he scored six points!  After the game, Grandpa got some pictures for me.

Go Priceville Bulldogs!!

These two have been buddies since they attended Nana School together as little ones. Every week I would have the two of them with me and we had a great time, playing and learning together.

Meanwhile I was at home with Baylor.

We hung out and made tents with blankets. Baylor loved hiding in the tent with his iPad.

When the siblings got home, they were fascinated by our creation as well.

Elliott was still enjoying his lollipop from the game.

Margaret spent the night with us and we took her to Katy after church and lunch. Katy's nephew is getting married next spring and the family was hosting an engagement party here in Decatur.

Making that tent gave me an idea for hiding out from Marvin on the days he is home.:) But I am afraid he would figure out it was me under the table because I do not fit as well as the young uns.
Seeing these three enjoying a simple pleasure was a fun thing for Nana.

I had to chuckle when I got to the end and you said that you might use the tent to hide from Marvin. You get this retirement thing all figured out and have me notes written so when my time comes I will be ready:)!!!

Arlene, it sounded like you had a wonderful weekend with your family. Enjoy your week!

Mrs.T said...

Yes, do that for me too, would you? On the days when my hubby is home due to weather or other things that affect his work, my day looks very different. Retirement looks like it will be more of the same, only every day.

What fun for the grandkids to enjoy that tent ... and so nice that Ben, Marvin and Margaret and Elliott could go and watch Landon's game. That must have been a great encouragement for him and great fun for them.

You always have fun with those grands! I love how the kids make traditions like the donuts! Memory pegs that will last their entire lives!

You are quite right...Marvin would definitely know it was you under the table in the tent! LOL Made me giggle!! Great photos and congrats to that little guy scoring six points!! Wow!

RJ said...

I bet you would decorate your tent very nicely too. Just make sure you have good lighting so you can still cross stitch! LOL!

You can tell Brandon scored six points ... look at that great smile on his face! All of your grandkids are just ADORABLE and sure love being with you and Marvin. Heck "happy meals" and "Krispy Kreme" sound good to me too.

Hiding out under the table might be fun, BUT could you get back up? That's my problem these days. I always manage it (or have so far) but sure hope nobody is taking a video of me getting up!

Precious little Grimmlins! Enjoyed the pictures.

Looks like you had a great weekend! As for hiding under the table, I am sure Marvin would find you, plus it could be pretty uncomfortable! :)

Such sweet little ones and you brought to mind memories of playing underneath mama's dining table when I was young.
