A Fall Day with Two Little Pumpkins...

We headed north today, bright and early to babysit for Mike and Lori who had early morning commitments.  The girls weren't even up yet, but were soon after our arrival and we all had breakfast together.    That's an unusual event that we all enjoyed.  Mom and Dad headed out and we started our work of...play!
 Bailey decided she wanted to be the photographer for the day and took over the camera.  I have many headless shots on my camera but this one wasn't too bad...you just re-evaluate things from a new angle...and extra chins as well.  You have to wonder why grandchildren love you like they do when they see you from this angle.....ha!
 Paw-paw took over their dad's comfortable chair and the remote.  Actually Emma and he battled for it and I'm not sure who won?!
 Outdoor, it was a wonderful, crisp fall morning and we got this pic while we checked out the flowers.
 The many hats of Bailey....
 and Emma's beloved binky!!
 Lori (& Mike) came home and we headed out for another adventure....
dressed in their coats that reminded me of little pumpkins and hats that Lori's mother made that I think are amazing!!  That alone makes cooler weather worth it!!

The grandkids looked so cute in their jammies and those sweet orange autumn coats. BTW, I have the very same lavender blue sweater that you are wearing, Donna!

What cute little pumpkins indeed. They all look so cute and good for the little one for taking your picture. Having grandma around for breakfast is so special.

My granddaughter took a picture of me on the Twister game when I was baby sitting her and she was just a wee little thing then. I didn't looked great on that picture but I have it in my iphoto library.

The girls are always dressed so cute! I am thinking Lori needs an etsy shop for all her adorable pieces she makes!

The kidlets are just adorable and those outfits do make them look cuter than pumpkins.

Hi Donna Sweetie...
Oh my goodness gracious, what a gorgeous share today. I love seeing your smiling face, smiling back at me. That is a beautiful photo sweetie. Just beautiful.

Aren't the girls just precious. I loved the photo of them in their beautiful orange coats and those darling hats. Now those are so darn cute. That photo is worth framing. Now if we could just find a way to keep them that size and so lovable.

Thank you for stopping by sweetie. I finally got a new computer (an early Christmas gift from Sis Marydon) and so I am back again posting. I still have no Dashboard tho, it shows me following nobody, so I was thrilled you popped by, it gave me your address once again.

Hope you have a beautiful day sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

The kids are so darling! I loved the pictures of everyone, especially the ones of you with the little "pumpkins". It sounds like you had a lot of fun. It is so great to be with family.

Well, isn't that SOMEthing! :)

I sure enjoyed sharing the happy time you had with your grandchildren. (That was after I teared up over the story of your mother and father-in-law from the post ahead of this one.)
