WE'RE BABYSITTING AND THEY'RE IN PARADISE
Oh it was a success!
The darling and I had been scheduled to
babysit Luke the Duke and Miss Piper
over in Atlanta, so that
The Divine Miss M and her sweet husband
took a well deserved vacay in Punta Mita!
We both said......
"OK! Wish us luck.....we're goin' in!"
As luck would have it,
both the darling and I came down with horrible colds.
I thought a big pot of chicken soup would be just
what the doctor ordered along with
some warm chocolate pudding for Luke
our fist night!
Miss M had her home all dressed up for fall....
Their gorgeous Tuscan style kitchen was festive for the fall!
I thought she did an amazing job on this~
Fall decor in every nook and cranny!
The darling and I made a good team...
we divided our duties between both Luke and Piper
and amazingly, we kept on schedule
for dog walking, dog hugs, breakfasts and dinners....
We had Luke to the bus stop every morning by 6:40 AM
arrived to greet him off the bus at 2:40 PM.
A homework session with Papa.
You do realize there are no textbooks anymore...
it's all on their I-Pads!
We made quite a few trips to Kroger
and the weather was gorgeous!
Their mums were calling my name......
We enjoyed every afternoon out on the deck
reading and letting Piper enjoy the fall weather.
I was over the moon happy with this....
I introduced Luke to our tradition of Spiced Tea in the fall.
He LOVED IT!
I mixed up a big batch for Miss M to have on hand
when she returned home.
Every afternoon he would ask me...
"Grandma, may I have some of your delicious Spiced Tea
in my new owl mug....I really love that!"
Saturday afternoon was a time for baseball!
While I sat with the peanut crowd,
Papa handled all the baseball equipment!
Then of course, there were several
afternoon play dates with Caden.
"Can y'all please be serious for a moment
and allow me to take a sweet picture?"
Saturday night was reserved for October movie night....
I was SO excited to show him this Disney classic
from our childhood!
I always try to do a craft project with our youngest grandson,
so this time around, we chose to carve a Jack O' Lantern!
I love this shot....
a little boys hand removing all the gooey pumpkin and seeds...
HIS favorite part!
We had a ball doing this......
and would you believe, it was our very FIRST time to carve a "jack" with him?
Papa carves the BEST Jack O' Lanterns, I think.....
He looks pretty happy with it.....
we did good Papa.....we did very good!
This kid sure makes us laugh!
while we were holding down the fort in Atlanta....
the "parents" were enjoying paradise
at The Four Seasons......
Now tell me....
did you have a "cheeseburger" in paradise?
Thanks y'all for giving us a memorable week!
