With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: A Sleep-over

A Sleep-over

Keri hadn't spent the night for a while so we asked if she would like to come Sunday evening.
Much to everyone's surprise, Caleb said in his sweet little voice...

"I go to Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop's too?"
Who could resist those pleading eyes as he gestures putting on his 'McQueen' jammies
so he could sleep over Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop's.
Into the car with clothes and toothbrushes packed and Pillow Pets in tow, wondering if he might be heading back home before the moon set.
Keri, fully prepared for an overnight stay.
This little guy was so excited the whole time he was here!
How delighted he was to get a bubble bath!
After a scrub-down, he poured cupful after cupful of water on his head and in his face.
Bedtime (when we thought he might say he wanted Mommy) went smoothly with just one reminder about being quiet. Caleb slept in the crib and big sister, Keri gave up a comfy bed to be close by for comfort and slept on a pile of quilts on the floor in his room.
 After a good nights sleep, blueberry pancakes, sausage, banana and strawberries filled those empty tummies.
sharing with Raider.

The cutest pictures! Not sure who had more fun, Caleb and Kerie or Pop-Pop and Mom-Mom.

These are the best kind of sleep overs..I remember them with my grand parents. I just love your sweet grands too! I was just telling my daughter this weekend how funny it is that I just love my blog friends grands too! ;D

Karen said...

Oh, I enjoyed this so much. Thanks for sharing the great pics. The kids are so cute! (My computer is down and I have been slow visiting my blog friends lately. God bless you)

Julie said...

I love your posts about your grandchildren. They always bring a smile to my face. Love the tub pictures!!!

Mildred said...

Keri and Caleb look like they had so much fun visiting. I know Raider liked the extra attention from them too!

All your photos are beautiful of the family. Wishing you a very good week.

Absolutely adorable, the faces of these precious grandchildren and Pop Pop says it all. How blessed to have them so nearby. Enjoy! Enjoy!

Olga said...

These little darlings look so happy. It must have been a lot of fun to stay overnight at "Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop's". Beautiful pictures!

Shelia said...

Oh, I could be jealous a little bit, being my only little grand daughter lives so very far away from us. What darling cuties you have and I can tell by those sweet faces what fun they had! Loved it.
Hope you'll come to my Heart of the Home Party - Show Us Your Favorite Cupboard next Tuesday! I'd love it.
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Maggie Ann said...

Oh your grandchildren are super sweet...I loved seeing the pictures! Especially the one of them together at breakfast. You are such a special family! I can't stop smiling!

Suzy said...

What a fun night for all! Thanks for sharing.

Donna Heber said...

Wonderful post and beautiful grandchildren! It sounds like everyone had fun.

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

How totally precious...I truly can't wait until it is my turn to have grand children spend the night and my youngest will also be so delighted to have them...maybe it won't be long.
What wonderful memories and blessings. What an inheritance from the Lord.

Keri On said...

So fun! I know my children remember their sleepovers w/ grandparents with such joy! Wonderful, lifelong memories!

Sandy said...

How I long for grandchildren! If only I had met my
precious husband earlier in life...oh well. With
our youngest son getting married in August maybe
we will have those little ones before too long.
Yours are so precious...true gifts from God.

What a treat for all of you! I can't wait until I have my sleep over at my son's in April - four whole nights, and a half a continent away.

Laurie said...

What a wonderful sleepover time and pictures! Caleb and Keri and just adorable and so are Silas and Cambrie - she is getting so big! I love having our grands for sleepovers, too ~ so blessed and thankful to God for them all.

Ann said...

What a brave little guy spending the whole night. You must have had so much fun with them there.

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

What a great sleepover :) You have a beautiful family! Looks like a fun time for all, such big smiles :)

Kristen said...

What a precious time you must have had! I remember how excited I always used to get when I stayed over at my grandmother's house all by myself. Those are great memories.

Kathleen said...

That is so sweet! We have never had our 4 sibling gkids at once...I don't know if I could handle it! :)

marie said...

What a wonderful bunch of photos ~ what precious memories of a very special evening. I can't wait to have "overnights at Gramma's house!
The pictures of Caleb in the tub are my very favorite. What a beautiful little boy he is!

How sweet of Keri to give up her comfy bed to sleep near her little brother, but I bet her Mom-Mom made sure her pile of quilts was so very soft & cozy!!
