KID STUFF


I have been laughing at my funny grandchildren and just have to share a couple of stories. This is the part where you can zone out if you only want to see quilt stuff. But if you want a laugh, read on!

Remember the little Plumpkin, as I have so often called her? She is two years old and lives in Minnesota. She decided to walk to her other Grandmother's house who only lives about ten miles away. My daughter was chasing her down the sidewalk when she turned around and said, "Mom, I'm not a kid anymore!" Apparently this is a quote from one of the Lion King movies. Here she is all decked out for Halloween. Don't mess with her!
The other funny story comes from Arizona. My son and granddaughter (the flyer -age 11) decided to make a pillow case. He bought some fabric and prepared to cut it. Darling granddaughter gets out the supplies. First she finds my cutting mat under the bed. Then she goes into the garage and gets her dad's right angle tool from his woodshop. Next, she pulls out the drawer in the kitchen and removes the pizza cutter! She was overheard saying, "this isn't turning out as good as when Grama does it." Hmmm, should I tell her?

From a fellow grammie, I loved both stories - and yes I can believe both of them! Kids!

Both stories are so cute- and pumpkin looks every inch as
ferociously independent as her story suggests.LOL

Sounds like you definitely have a quilter in the making there! She obviously watches you very closely! LOL! Love the "Plumpkin" picture too--what a hoot!

Cute stories! The Plumpkin and my Chunka Hunka (Eli - 3) would be cute terrorizing the world. We could spend hours laughing at and sharing stories of our grandchildren.

What would we ever do without those little angels. It is so different being a Grandma than a Mom. The photo is adorable she looks just like her grandma.

Hi Marcie, great stories...love the one from the Plumpkin! Right...not a kid anymore...LOL
The tree table topper is just great! Of course being 'away' I've missed the original post but have gone and read it now. I do plan to go and see the directions and hopefully between now and snow fall, I will make one up for myself. Thank you my special friend for sharing with us!!! Hugs, Finn
