What Makes Me Smile Monday - Grandparents Day

I love Grandparents Day's.  I know some people hate those things but I love it. John and I and Bob (Baron's Day) went to Gigi's.   We watched a play, then went back to her classroom where they sang three songs then presented us with the sweetest handprint.  Then we did a craft.  It was so much fun to have Gigi tell me who all her classmates were.  Then we got to watch them do their calendar.  Count to 30 and tell us what month it was.

A table remade

 These pictures are of the finished product.  I had a little trouble getting the pictures in the order I wanted so you get to see the finished product and then the work I put in to it. 

As some of you might have read, my daughters and I spent some time this summer garage sale-ing and antiquing.   At a antique shop in McCordsville I bought this little table.  I loved it but wanted it to pop.  I saw a great table/vanity on an etsy site that was red.  I loved it and decided to do this to my little table.  I think it turned out really cute.  So I wanted to share.

A little Halloween fun

I love Halloween and being a little "elementary" in my creativity.   Here are a few pumpkins I painted.   And I love the little stands I got at Target last year when they were 90% off.    Have a "ghoulishly" fun week.

What Makes Me Smile Monday - Gigi's last soccer game

Sweet Addi had to get in the picture!   I love it.

Saturday we went to Gigi's last soccer game for the fall.  It has been fun watching her and Coach Baron.  It is also fun to meet and cheer with the other parents and grandparents.  This was a special day because they got their trophies and Gigi has been saying for about a year that she really wants a trophy.  It was a really cute trophy.  She said she was never going to break it.  :)   This makes me smile on this Monday!

What makes you smile today?  Link up with us and let us share and spread the joy!

The Simple Things - little feet

 Miss Delainey spent the night with Mimi and Papa while Mommy and Daddy celebrated their 6th anniversary.  I love these little feet.  So excited to eat!

My Trip to Florida

My first day we ate lunch at the Beach House Restaurant for lunch.

The weather was a little gloomy but we didn't let it stop us.  This is the view of the Sandbar Restaurant where we ate lunch one day.

 We ate at Tommy Bahama Restuarant...
 Yummy appetizers from Sandstone!

This past week I was lucky enough to travel to Floriday and spend almost a week with my sister-in-law and my nephew.  We had such a great time.  We ate at some amazing restaurants, did a lot of shopping, went to see the new Footloose move (which I loved) and see Evan play basketball.  He is attending IMG Academy.  His day starts at around 6:00 a.m. with practice and then they break for breakfast.  He has four hours of classes and then back to practice, weight lifting, and work outs till 6:30 in the evening.  He loves it and is really growing.  It was so much fun to see him play and see some of his routine.  I had a great visit and hope to visit again soon.

Sunday was Gigi's 4th Birthday party.  Andrea and Baron had her party at the California Pizza Kitchen.  The kids got to have a tour of the kitchen and then make their own pizza's.  They got a coloring book and then make a felt pizza while waiting for their "real" pizza's to cook.  The Pizza Kitchen and their management did a great job with the kids.  Andrea, as always did a great job.  She made apron's for each party goer and each one got a rolling pin and chef's hat.    All the kids had so much fun.  Gigi loved her party and had a great time opening her gifts.  They all loved eating the red and white polka dot cupcakes.  It was an amazing party.  I'm so impressed with the party and what a great job every did.  I'm so happy for my grandbabies and the wonderful parties they get to have each year.  I know that as they get older and see pictures and hear all the wonderful stories that these parties will mean even more.  Happy Birthday you make me smile everyday!
