These three woke up in a silly mood on Monday morning.
However, that is nothing new.
They could hardly wait to pick up their cousins Diana and Gloria and go to A.C. Moore for crafts.
We were hungry by the time we finished shopping, so stopped at McDonald’s for lunch.
When we finished eating, we went to the grocery store to get food items we needed for the week.
They each choose a breakfast and supper menu.
After getting the groceries and crafts unpacked, and taking Diana to her job at G & G Feed & Supply, the other four started to work on their first craft.
Gloria and Ian were “digging” for jewels.
Jared was on a dinosaur dig.
Jesse was assembling an Angry Birds kit. The directions were easy enough for a six-year-old to understand. I just had to show him what steps 1, 2, and 3 meant.

Jesse playing with his assembled kit.
The object of the game is to “sling shot” the bird into the pig and knock him off of his tower of blocks.
Or if you want the game to be more challenging, you can place the pig tower on top of the cardboard box.
Gloria and Ian eventually uncovered their hidden treasures.
Then they needed something in which to hold their treasures. I had purchased a pack of white gift bags, so for this craft we cut the top off of four, and they proceeded to decorate them with duct tape.
Ian was in charge of supper so asked Grandpa to help him grill hamburgers.
After supper they made a “critter” mix to see what we could attract to the patio – in sight of the field camera. If you are thinking that Jesse has a new hairdo, it’s because the girls were styling his hair.
The critter mix: peanuts, marshmallows, bird seed, chocolate chips, and peanut butter.
This is how they get bedtime showers at grandpa and grandma’s house. 🙂
After they put their wet clothing in the washing machine and got into dry clothing, they watched a video – while grandma RESTED.
