I Had a Fun Weekend!

started my weekend by going to the eye doctor after work and picking up my new glasses and contacts. After 54 years, I finally found contacts that I can wear. I've been wearing a trial pair for a week and I really like them. I came home and my daughter dropped off my granddaughter to spend the night. We had a great time. We read all the new books I got for her. She loves to read. She takes after her gramma. She learned how to sew with a set of lacing cards I bought.
We played with poppa, watched Disney movies and planned our Saturday.

Saturday morning we got up and made pancakes. We got dressed and walked up the the Wizard of Oz festival parade. By adult standards, I thought it was pretty lame, but she seemed to enjoy it, except the sirens. That was as far as our involvement went with the Oz fest. I really don't like the Oz fest. I could give you 100 reasons why not, but why bother.

We walked back home, got in the car and headed for the apple orchard. We all had a great time. She loved the animals, the play yard, the food, the gift shop and riding the Moo Choo train with her godmommy/aunt. It was so much fun to watch her. She has such a joy about her and a hilarous sense of humor for a three year old. It was a wonderful day.

Today, not so wonderful. It's been a day full of laundry, floor scrubbing, bathroom cleaning etc, etc, etc. All the fun things I usually do on Saturday. It's okay though. I'll take a day with my granddaughter over cleaning any day of the week. I hope you all had a great weekend too.

I almost forgot a very important part of my weekend. Notre Dame won!!!!!


  1. She's so stinkin' cute! I took her some chocolate chip cookies today and she told me all about her fun time at the orchard. Glad you had a fun weekend!

  2. How exciting... what a busy weekend!! Your daughter, the godmommy is beautiful!! What a fun day for gramma, poppa and auntie! Your granddaughter is precious and I am sure she loves spending time with you too!

  3. What a great weekend. I would rather spend the day with my granddaughter than anything else I can think of! Yours is precious.

    Tell me about your contacts.

  4. Thanks for including me in your fun-filled day! I had so much fun and I think I'll always remember it!

    love you, ma!

  5. The Bears had a killer win, too! She had so much fun :) That's all Husband and I have heard about the last two days. Thanks, again, for taking her overnight. I missed her like crazy, but it was a much needed break :) and I got some great one-on-one with Lizard. Love you!

  6. Looks like you had a great weekend....thanks for sharing fun pics! I do think I needed the rest, but I do also think some sunshine would help! I don't think we are supposed to have any until Wednesday.....don't know if I can stand these clouds and rain until then. Sure makes me not want to do anything. I should be dressed and working by now, but nope, still in the process! Hope you have a good week!


  7. OMG...Nancy, I loved this post. The pictures are awesome! The love I see in your family is so heartwarming. Your grand-daughter looks exactly like you! I know I've said that before, but it's so true. I agree with you and those dern loud sirens at parades. Why do they have to do that? I live about 1 mile from the orchard. It's a fun place. I can't wait to go again with the grandkids soon. Oh, since they didn't have the market cause of the fest, we didn't go. There's always next Sat. I know what you mean about cleaning the house, but it sounds like you girls had a blast. The cleaning can always wait! That's my rule now after becoming a mimi.


I love comments. It makes me feel like I know you better. Even if you just say hi, please leave me one!
