Christmas Traditions Continued:

What a fun evening we all had! We turned off the TV and played games. If you haven’t done that in awhile treat yourself. Even the simplest games are fun when kids are involved! This one’s great fun and called “Don’t Fuggetabout the Candy Game”

You can get it at They have some of the best games for kids ever!
And of course coloring is always a favorite!

And, then there’s Old Maid, also from
Turns out Grandpa was the old maid! (:

Pretty fancy room for two little girls! Michaela, the 7 year old told me it was “fabulous”! I made the drapes and bed canopy myself. The cream fabric is that wonderful Lakehouse frosted dot I keep talking about! Gives a bit of a shimmer when the light catches it.

Getting two little girls to go to sleep in this room was another story. Take two grand-daughters who each have their own room, and put them in one room and you had a recipe for an interesting evening.

Grandma, how do I know there aren’t bugs in here?

Grandma, I can’t sleep with the light on in the hall.

Grandma, I can’t sleep without a night light.

Grandma, I can feel the bed through the mattress.

Grandma, why do you have these drapes on the wall?

Grandma, if I pull these drapes around me Alyssa can’t see me.

Grandma, I can’t go to sleep.

Grandma, my head is starting to hurt.

Grandma, I can’t go to sleep.

Grandma, can you close the closet doors?

45 minutes minutes later they were finally asleep, our home was quiet and I was smiling (:

  • Suzan - What a beautiful room for your granddaughters! I have two DGDs also(one from each of my sons) and we do “Grammy Camp” for a week in the summer as the children live far away from me. I love bedtime and the crazy antics. They turn off the light, close the door and then start talking like a couple of old ladies! (They are 6 & 9). Sounds like you have lots of fun!
    Best! ~ SuzanReplyCancel

  • gloria g. - Yes, they have a lovely room. Where are those adorable bunny beds? I know the girls must think this is a palace! My little one said that because our bed is high. Oh what they think! Glad you had a wonderful evening.

  • Elizabeth - I’m with Pam on that one–hey there are 2 beds! Seriously–that room could not be more beautiful. And even if you had bugs I’m sure they’d be cute and pink and would wear little flowered caps.ReplyCancel
