Valentine's Evening with the Grands

There was a special comedy night at church for couples last evening. Two of our children attended with their spouses....we kept the kiddos :)

I made the traditional jello hearts....the Grands don't seem to be as fond of them as our kids were! 

I also bought candy and let them have some too ;-)
Ellen helps herself!

The kids do like these hearts!

We made pizza for dinner...that's something they all enjoy.



They threw a ball in the house :)

Games....hand held and Sorry!

This game was taking too long so we quit when Brinley got one game piece Home....the first one to accomplish that! 

Next, it was ice cream and a movie. 
We chose Charlotte's Web. (I kinda pushed for this one....been a long time since we watched it and I'm not fond of Action Heroes or dinosaurs!) They enjoyed it. 

We tried to take some selfies :)
These girls :)

Got it...sorta!

PopPop was in charge of the baby. He has a cold and needed to be held. He took a nap on PopPop...woke up like this...
Such a cutie! I sent a pic to Mommy so she wouldn't worry about him. 

After the movie, Paityn was tired and went to sleep on the sofa. She has a cold too. Brinley and Zoe went to the loft to play with Barbies and Aidan played with the Leapster. Noah was ready for his mommy when, actually he was ready a bit before, they got home. He loves his mommy!

We had a great time. We don't do this enough. I would have liked to bake something or do a craft but I just didn't feel up to it. Besides the weather we've been having has not been the kindest to the roads. I've not driven anywhere all week.....except to pick up Zoe at school on Friday. I'm a fair weather driver!

Till the next time, our sweet Grands....Nana promises to be more prepared :)

P.S. I just remembered something from last night. After the movie I encouraged Brinley and Paityn to put on their pj's. Zoe said in a very surprised tone....Look, Brinley stayed in her clothes the whole time!! Brinley loves to change clothes...dress up clothes or put on Zoe's :) But last evening she didn't. We could even find her socks and boots when time to leave!

Looks like fun to me:) My Hubby loves jello! I buy the 10 calorie cups and he has one almost every evening! Hope the roads clear up so you can get out and get back in the groove. Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

I am sure they had a great time. It is fun to have them around, but at the same time, it is work too.

What a sweet time, and I know the parents enjoyed their evening out! I never remember having pizza as a child, but the kids today sure love it :)
