Big Sister

She is ready for sleep with her new buddy Mr. Sock Monkey!
It was a little hard to get a picture of Maya alone. Jada sees the camera and manages to put herself in the picture whenever possible. All set for bed on the first night with Gramma. I confess that we tricked Jada so that Maya could sleep with me!

She was "helping" cousin Gavin with the big snow ball. This is how I like to help .......... watching, lounging and giving instructions.

Just hanging out and watching.

Holding baby sister. Maya is the quiet one....... or the quieter one. A little sneaky, too. She is a Daddy's girl and the only time we had a conversation we were in bed in the dark. Pillow talk? She rambled on and on about her friends and school and what she was going to do.
She wants a cheer leader costume. We went online and found a pattern and discussed colors. Finally she asked, "What does a cheerleader do?" I told her they lead the crowds in cheering for a particular team and sport. She just liked the costume and has no plans to actually cheer......... The last thing she told me before I left was to not forget that she needs that costume by October. I think I can handle that!

All of your grandchildren are beautiful. I'm glad to see that she liked her sock monkey. It sounds like she's a bit shy? She'll make a wonderful cheerleader. It sounds like you're going to be quite busy making things for the girls. They're fortunate to have such a crafty 'Gramma.'

You have absolutely beautiful grandchildren, Kathy. You must be so proud! (I love the sock monkey.) They are lucky to have such a creative grandmother. I can't wait to see the cheerleader costume.

I love her method of helping too! Seems to be the way it is here too...

those girls are so cute and you can tell they are full of "p**s and vinegar" (that's what my mom always called active, ornery kids - mine included - LOL!).

Glad the sock monkeys were a hit! Your grand daughters are adorable. I think you can get the cheerleading costume done by October! LOL!
