Sunday at Camp Grammy's...

The rain came down...Mt. Cheam was lost in the clouds and the puddles were getting bigger by the hour. Emme & Spencer came for the day and stayed for a sleepover. Outside activities were out of the question, but we found lots to do inside.

The girls wanted to show off their newly learned skipping skills. By they time they were done skipping, it was hot in the house...or so they thought!

And Emme had something exciting to show us...she lost her first tooth. Spencer has already had two visits from the tooth fairy, and Emme was pretty sure she had been passed by. It happened at last!

And for supper...

...wiener weenie dogs from the Spatulatta Cookbook (recipes for kids). It's a recipe book I picked up at Costco awhile back and the girls had been begging to try something, so today was the day. (I just noticed that there is also a web site called which features fun cooking ideas for kids.)

Delicious....nutricious?...and lots of fun!

After supper we watched Max Lucado's 'Hermie...the Common Caterpillar'...very cute and reinforces that each of us is 'wonderfully made'!  Psalm 199:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

The afternoon ended far too quickly, because it's a school night. Oh yes, and did I tell you how fun it is to be a grammy?


  1. I can see that you love being a grammy. How fun it is to have that help in the kitchen. I love those weinie dogs, what a great and cute idea.
    YOur fire in the fireplace looks so cozy, how perfect for yesterday.

  2. I didn't realize it was so long since I had visited you here! I'm looking forward to the day that you can transmit the smells along with the fotos!

  3. Looks like these girls had a wonderful time at Camp Grammy's.

    My 4 year old grandson loves to help me in the kitchen.
