Crafting it Forward!

Here's a fun little contest! I was the first to spot it on Courtney's blog this morning and I want to play!

Here are the rules:
The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! This offer does have some limitations:

1. You will not know what it's going to be, and there are no guarantees that you will like what I make! It may be something simple and small or I may go crazy and do something amazing.

2. It’ll be done this year. Translation: you may be waiting a little while. ( My goal is the next 6 weeks)

3. Most importantly, you must offer the same deal on your blog - the first 5 people to comment on your blog (or Facebook or whatever, if you don't have a blog) get something made by YOU!

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.

Hmmm... What to post?

Here is a cute "show and tell".  This is my youngest grandbaby, Kylie Mae.  She belongs to my son, David and his sweetheart, Katie.  She is seven months old now and as adorable as can be.
