Weekend at Grandma's

Anthony and Jayden spent the weekend here while their folks are on a cruise. In the past 48 hours we have:
Raked lots and lots of leaves in the backyard.
Lonn & Jayden raking leaves.
Jonathan's creative gingerbread house.
Made gingerbread houses with Amy, Brayden, Anthony and his friends Jonathan and Sam.

Went to the playground with Annalise, Jayden's friend from across the street.
Saw a display of about 500 Nativity scenes at the Kaysville Tabernacle.
Saw the 35-foot (real) Christmas tree and skating rink at the Station Park stores in Farmington. Tried to see Santa but Jayden got scared and began screaming.
Played Old Maid, War and Match Game.
Went to church.
Made refrigerator magnets from Perler beads.
Went on a walk.
Made pink Rice Krispies treats.
Sam's house caved in so he ate it. 
Anthony 's creation wasn't really a house.
Made Barbie a new skirt.
Did puzzles.
Made lots of mac & cheese and chocolate milk.
Told Jayden's story of the girl who "put on a little red outfit so the fox would chase her on the way to her grandma's house." And then, "The fox said I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down."
Watched Sponge Bob.
The idea was to keep t hem so busy they wouldn't miss Mom & Dad. What a weekend! I need the week to recuperate.

So what if it's not perfect? The kids had fun.
