Gammpottsie Day

Payton came to town, so it was the perfect time for our first annual Gammpottsie Day.  That's Collier talk for grandparent's day -- a rip-roaring celebration with our "older" grandchildren! Prerequisite:  must be potty trained.

This year we invited Payton and Lily.

First, we changed into pajamas.  Lily would NOT step foot into her zip up footie PJs.  She insisted on wearing two-piece just like her cousin, Payton.  Luckily he had an extra pair to share.

We built a fort.

Popped Popcorn

And watched a movie.

Lily and Payton were more than a little bit excited about going swimming.

But first it was time to jump on the beds,
Say Prayers
And give good-night kisses.

Before we knew it, we were up again with the early birds. 

Waffles for Breakfast

Time for a morning swim.
We topped off our Gammpottsie Day with Lunch and Fun at Chick-fil-A.
I don't know about Potts, but Gammie had to take a nap after all was said and done.  Where did I ever get the energy to raise five children!  But Payton, Lily, Potts, and I had such a great time. We can't wait for Evylee to join us next year.  


  1. Yesterday we had Payton over so Jenni could go to her Dr. appointment and he couldn't stop talking about his fun day with Gammie and Potts.

  2. FUN-FUN-FUN. Kathryn is the perfect Gammie! Always thinking of fun ways to build memories. I just wish I were able to remember them all.

  3. Mom - I didn't write that comment. Not sure who wrote it - or how they posted it as me. Cute post - fun pictures, you should email those to me when you get a chance.

  4. I want a Gammpottsie day! I'm potty trained, shouldn't I get a day? It looks like it was a lot fun.

  5. Emily (your real daughter-- as much as I might pretend I am) said exactly what I was going to say: I want a Gammpottsie Day, too!! Priceless pictures, btw. OH! And the flowery sheets on the bed? I had those exact same ones my whole life growing up!! Now I know I belong in your family!
