One thing the farmer and I like to do is have the grandchildren visit. In the past two weekends we have had the little stinkers over. We had some crafting going on and ended up with glitter everywhere. Hair, eyes, hands, arms, face, floor. I'm still finding glitter.
Emma is our little budding artist. She always has something crafty going on and is the lover of the glitter, glue and mess. But her creations end up on my refrigerator and in many a gift under the tree so it is worth her efforts.
Lucy usually just makes a swipe or two with the markers or crayons but this time she and Emma found many lovely ways to sparkle. The glitter in their hair was the biggest challenge to get out. I'm sure they are still sparkling for their dad.
Byron has a fascination for all things with motors. Cars, trucks, trains, planes, flushing toilets and now he knows the sewing machine works. His mama was sewing and he jumped in to work for his dinner.
Of course we had a giant mess and I do believe that Lucy's favorite part was the clean up. Seriously folks, I don't make her do these chores. She begs to cook, wash dishes and vacuum.
