only four more days til the weekend!!

home sweet home...
wow,, what a busy weekend!  Lets see, Friday night I went to see The Great Gatsby, saturday I spent the day shopping with Bethany and the two Torrys.
We went to Sarahs garden center in Brockport.  Oh my goodness, I love going there.  I get my plants for my fairy Garden there because they always have the sweetest little tiny plants ! They also have a large water feature area and lots of goldfish for ponds.. Torry really loved the water and goldfish!
 Sunday I painted that silly fence in the pic above, worked on bears, and then I planted my  fairy garden.
I cant remember who did a mini dinosaur garden, but I think Im going to make one of those next weekend for Torry pie.. a fairy garden for princess Marla pie and a dinosaur garden for Torry!
Not quite done yet, I need to make a grapevine arch and add some mushrooms and stones.
marla pie
so then sunday night I went and picked up marla and kept her over night.  she is sooo freaken sweet!  She is so much more quiet then Torry.  Torry talks non stop and plays hard.... marlas quiet and gentle.. they are so different, but of course each absolutely freaken perfectly precious in their own ways!!  torry doesnt like to eat, unless its sweet... marla.. LOVEs all food.  they crack me up!  So marla stayed overnight on sunday and kept me busy sunday til everyone came over for our memorial day picnic.

happy memorial day
Everyone came, which was awesome.  I love having all my family at one time. We had about 4 extras here as well.. The more the merrier.  I invited one of the boys I work with over because he would have been stuck at his foster home, so he came and hung out with us for the afternoon.  He probably thinks we're all crazy.  (we are) !  I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!  I'm pooped from mine.
anyways.. it was a crazy fun filled busy weekend and now its time to jump in the shower, iron some clothes and get off to work!  only 4 days til the weekend again!!
Have a great week everyone!

Your fairy garden is adorable. I love how hands-on you are with your grandbabies. Your kids are so lucky. Enjoy the shorter work week. Josie's party is this weekend. I need to put the finishing touches on her western party decor. A good kind of stress. Hugs!!

Viv I remember my parents taking us to the garden center and how going to the goldfish pond was the highlight of the trip! There must be something about BOYS - mine is the same way with food and his energy. I always joke that girls think things through and observe whereas boys just go full throttle and jump in - they don't think about consequences or outcomes ;) I love the idea of the dinosaur garden - because we have a TON of those...you may see one pop up on my blog soon! Glad you had a great weekend!

I hope your eye is all healed now girlfriend. Your fairy garden is adorable, I wish I could do something like that here, but it's already over 100 degrees and those kinds of plants would just burn up within hours. Your grand babies are just too freakin' adorable.......I want some so badly!!!!
