Sleepover!

We had Alaina and Ruby overnight on Friday night.  It had been about a month since they spent the night and it was so good to spend time with them again!
I hope you can put up with some pictures!



 Both of the girls like to arrange stuffed animals on the couch and cover them with blankets.



 Playing with Grandpa.  They tired him out!



 I've told you about Ruby climbing before.  She'll use anything to get her up a little higher. This is one of the little boxes that we store blocks in.  After I took the picture, I hid the box from her so she didn't break it.  :)


 Alaina sits with Grandpa, Ruby doesn't believe in sitting.


 "Helping" get a snack.






 Moving the stool again, so she can get up by the counter.


I was bringing things to the car before bringing them home.  Ruby didn't want to be left behind, so she sat in the doorway and watched.
We had a fun time, and I think the girls, and Grandpa and Grandma slept well on Saturday night.

Haaahaaha Ruby ... always seeking higher ground. I laughed out loud at "Ruby doesn't believe in sitting." She was shot out of a cannon and no mistake. I bet Laura and Aaron enjoyed a few hours of not having to worry that Ruby was going to fall off a stool and break her noggin. I'm glad she's happy to stay with you and Bob now, and isn't afraid anymore. Alaina is my kind of girl: much blanket-snuggling time in this winter weather. xoxo

Our Margaret was like that...and still is!!

It's a good thing the circus doesn't come to town anymore, or Ruby would be running off to be a trapeze performer!! I foresee a broken bone or two for that girl before she figures out she needs stop climbing! Both of your granddaughters are so adorable. I know you all had lots of fun and I never get tired of your photos!

Those moments in time are so precious. And, that Ruby! LOL She and Jase would make a team for sure. I can appreciate how much fun they had, and even the resting afterward. :)

Making memories with those little girls; love all your pictures...We babysat last week for our daughter to go out of town and I know what you mean about being tired. I have to say though it's the best tired...

Oh those Girls are so darn adorable!! You can tell how Ruby keeps you hopping, though!! Lol I love that twinkle in her when she smiled at the camera. I see a bit 'o the devil in her eye. ;) Such fun Grandma and Grandpa must have - but I bet you do take a nap the next day!!

Oh my goodness, they are simply the cutest. That little one is busy like my middle one. Aren't our babies just the most wonderful thing, bringing such joy to us?

Precious pictures of two precious little girls and I just bet they love both of you and enjoy being there with you. The picture of Ruby with the pacifier in her mouth is so cute.

Those two girls are so cute. They make me smile every time they come over to your house for a sleep over.

Oh so Ruby is happy to stay over night now? I'm sure the last time I read about her here she really cried and wasn't happy. She looks like she is now, ha!

Kari said...

they are so cute and growing up fast!

Jennifer said...

Ruby really is becoming a little climbing monkey! I'm glad you all had a nice time at your sleepover. I'm glad Ruby is willing to stay over with you now.

Laura said...

They tire you out, and you tire them out - they're always tired too! :) And yes, that is what Ruby does - always climbing on something! I'm thinking of just wrapping her up in packing foam every morning. :)
