Monday, Grandkids!


 It is a little or a lot crazy here depending on how you see it.

Saturday morning Hubs and I got up and went over to Lil sis's sig other to help him clear off his deck. We also called our missionaries to help as there were very heavy cabinets that Lil sis and SO (Significant other) had pulled out of kitchen as he is doing a full remodel.  She said it almost killed them getting them out to deck and they needed to go downstairs and out to his shop.  So, missionaries came and in 20 minutes had those things in garage where he wanted them, and several other large heavy things moved.  It would have taken us forever. Plus, I don't know if could have done it.  We were very grateful.

Then Hubs and I drove about an hour away to Mosse creek where Hubs surveyed and lined out the roads about 25 years ago.  There is a nice campground there and we wanted to check it out. We are going to take our grandkids camping on Wed-Thur.  We wanted to check out availability.  Then we drove home as hubs had to play in the pit.

I was going to get the ironing done this weekend, but my right shoulder has really been bothering me especially at night.  I had three ball room wedding dresses to steam and press last week and those are so heavy.  I think I stressed the muscles around the shoulder doing those and my arthritis flared. So as to not aggravate it more I did not iron.

Sunday, we had missionaries over for BBG steak and just as we sat down the kids showed up, coming in from a Wedding they had attended in Nampa. They brought James and Danny with them.  Of course, all were hungry, but I had made extra potatoes, squash, and roast carrots, homemade biscuits. I also cut up a small roast and put it on skewers and BBQ'd them.  There was plenty of food for all.  Also had plenty of dishes to do. We took all swimming at Lil sis's after dinner to tire them out.

Nate and Signe were tired from traveling with 4 kids and WIlliam wanted to stay with James.  Sig was bringing Kelsa back down here this morning at 6:30 as she had a to be at the surgery at 7:00.  I told her to just leave her with us. So, we have all 4 kids. They were tired after swimming, and no one argued about going to bed.  Kelsa fell asleep on the way home and went right to bed.

Up at 7 and on dead run, empty dishwasher, make blueberry pancakes, clean house, make beds.  The house was a wreck.  You forget how fast 4 kids can poop up a house.  Our oldest grandson Danny is going on 12 and such a big help with the little kids and he is great with Kelsa. James and Schmills are only 6 weeks a part, so they are attached at the hip.  

I need to get Kelsa asleep after lunch, and Hubs will take the boys to Lil sis's to swim. Then I will get some sewing done. Signe will pick kids up this evening and take them to her house, and I will have some time maybe?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. What is BBG steak? Outdoor activity is my favorite thing to make children eat and sleep.

  2. I love that the older boy is such a help. My twin 11 year old niece and nephew play with the littles at the lake and give a much needed break to parents.

    1. It really helps. The babies quit fussing as soon as the big kids sit down to play with them. So nice!
