We've got lots of projects going on around the house, but we put them on hold for visitors last week. I have to take pictures with my cell phone camera because I can't find my real camera. I put my camera someplace for safe-keeping when this little 4-year-old ruffian was visiting, and now I can't remember where I put it.
Little Livvie is pretty good with electronics as you can see. Too bad I didn't show her where I was putting my camera...she remembers EVERYTHING.
We have six grandchildren in all. These two were here with their parents while on Spring break. The weather was a little iffy most of the time so, when we needed a break, we spent time at the inside play areas of two McDonald's in town. One play area has tunnels that go up three levels and the other has a variety of slides and bars to climb. We tried the play area at Chick-Fil-A, but the kids vetoed it after that one time.
We tried keeping them busy with activities. I found myself wishing we had picked a small bead set instead of this huge one. I was sure there would be beads everywhere, but thankfully that didn't happen.
Here's Ben with his first necklace masterpiece...
SuperGirl couldn't be bothered to model her necklace. She was too busy with snacks.
The carnival was in town while they were here. That took up two afternoons! Mom and Dad took them up in the Ferris wheel many times while Wild Bill (AKA Grampy) and I "guarded" the ground below. I do not do rides of any kind, especially ones that go up high up like this.
As you can imagine, it took us a few days to get back to normal after they left, then I started getting things done.
I've been re-painting and waxing some furniture, a clock and a lampshade, plus packing up lots of knick-knacks and books to get them out of the way while a cabinet is being built that will separate our entrance hallway from the dining room and give us some much needed storage.
The cabinet will be built into this archway between the dining room and hallway.
I had to darken my pictures a little to show detail due to the sun shining in the door. The walls are actually a pale yellowish beige, but I really like how the walls look brown here so it appears more paint samples are in my future! I'll be back soon with some better pictures just as soon as I find my camera.
Thanks for dropping by!
