Sleep overs

I am still here.  This is a busy summer.  The above are cakes for the new baby due in August.  The toppers were mine and you have seen them before.  I thought and thought about what would work for cake toppers.  Since this was the only thing I could do, I chose these.  I thought they looked really cute.
We have had sleep overs all week long.  Not pictured were Laken and her brothers.  They are on my phone.  I got an smart phone at last.  Not the latest expensive type but just perfect for me.  But, I still don't know how to post from my phone or I pad.  The girls above are sitting in my new chair and a half.  I love it.  I can sit with the grands or both dogs or have two sweet girls sit in it together.
These are our overnighters for tonight.  My K-Bug on the right.  Her parents are out of town with Goose so we get her, yippee.  So funny that her two best friends are our best friends daughters.  You ask, "What are they doing?"  One of my Shirley Temple Facebook groups are doing a Flat Shirley.  Have you heard of Flat Stanley?  Well, it is where the Shirley travels to different states.  Whoever is the hostess takes pictures of taking Shirley places or what she does in your home.  Yes, I feel like I am in the first grade.  My grands think it is funny.
We just returned from Tumbleweeds and to see "Finding Dorie".  We went to the game room for a few minutes but left rather quickly.  The girls were getting looks from boys.  A girl came up and asked how old our granddaughters were.  When we said 12 she took off to tell her friends.  K. Bug's friend is only 12 and about 5'8".  Goodness, I am not ready for this stage at all.
So what else have I not told you.....hmmmmmm  I had a big day at the dentist.  Glad that is over.  I went to my rheumatologist for the follow up on the third blood test that was positive for a marker. But nothing came out positive and I am released.  That's a relief.  I haven't had any of the other issues.  My side and hip pain has left.  I am really thinking I had kidney stones even though the scan was negative.  It may have been too late for anything to show up.    So I am back to my old self. 
We finally got the boxes unloaded from the spare bedroom.  Good thing because of the sleepovers.  I was gifted beautiful quilts for the beds.  Hopefully I will be able to share those someday when I figure the posting pictures thing soon.
This coming week is my husband's last week and then he retires.  Well, he did say he would work a couple days a week.  I am so excited for him to for the first time ever not to be working 10 hour days.  I think wants he gets the great feeling of waking up when you want and not having to have your day dictated to you.  Well the dogs do dictate our days but that is different.
S0, I hope you are all enjoying your summer.  The heat is not my friend but I have plenty of things to do to avoid as much as possible. 
Be back sooner than this last time.

You are the best kind of Grammy in the world! I love the adventures you go on. Your new chair seems super comfortable. I love that you get so many snuggles in. The girls will have these memories forever.

I love the "finding Shirley" idea. When we downsized last year I sold my childhood Shirley Temple paper dolls on ebay. Now I may regret that decision.
