Welcome to my Week!

Well, this might be a continuing post.  By that I mean – I may be adding to it over the next few days with storytimes, teatimes, play-dates, and more!

Welcome to my week when my grand-baby 
Mackenzie comes to visit!!

Braving the snow in New England, my son, Andrew, and wife Andrea, packed up toddler Kenzie and all her Veggi-Tales, and headed south to New Jersey for a few days with Nana.  PopPop taught her how to beat daddy with Rock’em Sock’em Robots . . .

Aunt Bethany and mom Andrea posed with our baby-doll before beddy-bye . . .

“Guncle” Dan and Aunt Bethany always take a great picture . . .

And, Nana?  You guessed it – not one photo with me yet.  Stay tuned . . . there is still hope . . .

A rainy day here in South Jersey – but that did not keep Nana, Mommy, and Kenzie from Toddler Time at the local library in the morning!  Such a busy girl – storytime with the library lady. . .

And, computer time with Nana in the shot!

Home for naptime!  Nana set up a little surprise to share with Kenzie while she slept . . .

 Teatime, of course!  I chose this sweet full size cup and saucer for Nana with a matching demitasse size for Kenzie.  A plate of cakes and scones (don’t you always have plenty of this on hand when company comes to visit) and one of my favorite little teapots – all pink and white!

She loved the pouring out and wanted to help . . .

Then, bravely sipped handling the china so very carefully!

“More, please!”

A little spoon action, before getting into some of the fascinating things in Nana’s office.  Would kitty like some tea?

How do I look in my giant pearl necklace?

How about another round of tea – decidedly!

And, since I was on baby-sitting duty while all the other adults were enjoying a baby free afternoon – yet again, no pictures of Nana.  However, that evening at daughter, Bethany’s apartment, we were treated to one of her gourmet dishes – with after dinner entertainment from Pixar on the big screen – and Nana cuddles . . .

More adventures of the week to come!!
