Exhaustified!!
We arrived home very late last night. It was such fun!! We had a great time with the grandkids and there were no mishaps!! Thank you for your prayers for safety. My spirit soared and my smile got bigger and bigger as I read all your sweet comments. You are the best - the absolute best.

I am totally out of "kid shape". It shouldn't be that hard to get five children (and one of them a teenager and a huge help) organized, but I found myself running to catch up with myself!! I felt a little better when my six year old grandson, who is just a non-stop ball of energy, fell asleep watching a video yesterday afternoon. I think we just try to cram too much fun into too little time. I really do love spending time with them.

The littlest one has just "mastered" potty training - so we spent a great deal of time in the bathroom. The poor little thing is going to think there is no other topic worth asking about other than, "Do you have to go potty?". She actually did very well - only a few little "mess-ups".

Our son and daughter-in-love had a great time. It was so good to see how rested and happy they looked when they returned home. We all sat around the kitchen table sharing news, and I looked at my son and my heart just filled with joy. He had the sweetest smile and just looked at each of the kids in turn with such love. I'm so glad they had this time together. Peace and quiet are a rare commodity in a house filled with five active children.

So Grandma and Papa were wicked and slept in today. I don't think either one of us even thought about getting up in time for church. I'm going to try to catch up with everyone over the next few days, but for now I think I see a nap in my near future.

I have a meme to write and awards to give out. I'll be working on all of that. Right now I feel a little fuzzy headed. Totally pathetic!!!

Have a blessed sunday everyone, and thank you again for your prayers. They mean the world to me.

Blessings,

I am so glad you're safely home and having a chance to rest. No rush on the meme!!

As for your sweet comment, I don't have 5 and I don't usually have them 24 hours a day! Thank the Lord! I know what you mean about the potty thing. Feisty just had a setback when she got an infection. This is her second backsliding, so I don't know if we'll ever get her totally trained!

Welcome home.

Sounds like you had a fantastic time! Now it's time for you to rest up!! :-)

So glad to hear that you're home safe and sound. Keeping up with 5 must be really tiring. I've never done that!
(I'm sure it 5x the fun, though!)
I think it does our children good to spend some one on one time with their spouse. Happy parents make for happy homes for our grandchildren!
Now rest, Grammy!!

I am so thrilled you had a great time :) - even when you are exhaustified!!!! Love that word.

I am glad you made it home safely, my dear friend.

Blessings on your up-coming week and always.

it's so wonderful that you were able to watch the grandkids so their parents could get away from some R&R and a bday celebration! Glad you survived :)

So glad you are home safely and that all went so well. You deserve a huge blessing for the gift of time that you gave your son and his wife, and for taking the time to make memories with your grandchildren. Go ahead and rest without feeling guilty. I know exactly how much energy it takes! :0)
