September's Eve......

I spent this September's Eve with both of my daughters!
It was such a good day!

All three of us love a good movie and we jumped at the chance to see one all together!
The Meg was pretty exciting!
We were at the 10:55 showing so it was just 1:00 when we got out.
Where to go now? 
Target, of course!!

I needed a few items to take on our trip and Amber was picking up pizzas for tonight and Summer is always up for a Target run! We were in two cars so while we waited for Summer, Amber went off and found a motorized cart for her!

Summer has had a string of rough days lately but nothing was going to stop her from being a part of this day - not even the fact that she didn't get to sleep until 4:00 this morning!

Amber timed it perfectly to ride right up to her as she walked in the door!
We shopped her and then Summer and I went on to Michael's - I found my fall candles and they were 3 for $10!- and to Sprouts for some fresh fruit and Raspberry Zinger Tea - Kailey's favorite - while Amber picked the kids up from school.
I found so much comfort for my soul spending all these hours with my daughters.
And the day was not done!
Granddad came over shortly after we all got back to Quadville.
They all love him but one little girl was especially glad to see him!

I heard Kailey ask him, "Have you hurt yourself??" 
And he said, "No! Have you?"

The kids were all so excited to have MeeMaw, Granddad and Aunt Summer all there!
Summer had to go to bed for awhile and the kids were watching a TV program about Legos.
They have moved on in their programs but Granddad's favorite is still Paw Patrol.

So they all decided to watch what Granddad liked!
I love this photo.
Even Amber is watching it with them.

Afterwards, the kids and I played Crazy Eight card game while Amber put the pizzas on.
And guess what Kailey accidently called me?? Grandma!!! I got all excited but she said she was confused and had started to say Grandmommy and stopped at Grandma-.
She said, "I like you better as MeeMaw! Not Grandma!"

Friday Night means Pizza, Popcorn, Coke and Movie!

And that's what we did!!

It was a great day and evening!
Granddad thought we were going to watch the original Cheaper by the Dozen but he really enjoyed this one. We all laughed and had fun.

Aunt Summer stayed the night but Louis Dean and I came home after the movie.
I had things to do to prepare for September First!
It may be a little silly but I am savoring these last hours of August in delicious anticipation of the very first September Morn of 2018.

I assured the quads I would be back over to spend the night tomorrow - but I wanted to be home on September First!!!

I just love how you celebrate September every year. Since it is my favorite month of the year I celebrate with you, but not nearly as elaborately. Such a good way to finish out August with your two girls. Glad to see pictures of the quads too. Looking at them I just thought back to when they were all babies. Time flies and they are so big and independent now.

Happy September 1st, Linda!!! This looks like the most wonderful day ever! I love both Target and Michaels, and we have both right her only five minutes away. I always have to use the scooters, thak goodness for them! My favorite picture is Kailey and Louis Dean. You can actually see such love, they both look totally peaceful. It is a beautiful picture. These pizzas look so good! A perfect excuse for me to go back to Target!! Say Hi to Neil Diamond for me!

Ginny Hartzler said...

Oh my, I totally forget to tell you, because I got so involved reading about your day. Your new Fall background is GORGEOUS!!!! Your prettiest EVER!

Estelle's said...

Oh what a marvelous day...nothing better than a shopping day with daughters.....thinking of you today....let's savor every minute!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

How great to have a day with your daughters and then visit with the quads too. Most of my grands call me grand'ma' but I do have one that calls me Mema. As he's getting older he has called me grandma a time or two. He's going into 1st grade this year. He asked me once while he was visiting how come I had no kids . It was fun to explain that his mommy was my daughter and like her all my kids have grown up. Happy September ! Hope you have a wonderful day !

Sandra said...

I just saw Ginny commented twice so read the 2nd one and I am laughing, I did not even SEEE the background, I was caught up in the photos and the story of the fun day you had... kind of scary I could miss all the fall color. I know you are either up or about to get up and lighting fall candles. enjoy Sept 1st. I really really like the photo of Amber on the sofa with the kids. super family photo

bj said...

...and here it is, Sept;. 2nd one without Bill.
I am so glad you had the day with your girls. There's nothing i love more than spending an entire day with my kids.
Your Autumn blog dress looks so's still just too hot for me to think of pumpkins and fall wreaths....I am looking forward to decorating for Christmas. LOL

I know it was a perfect September Eve-- spending it with the girls, quads and Louis! (And the movie.) What a balm for your soul after your busy Thursday.
Ed and Kristi came and left David and Kat here for the night. I felt so blessed to have them, chattering away, (while you were with your girls and the quads!)
David had to take his Methotrexate yesterday, so he went to sleep before 10:30. Kat was asleep on the sofa before 10:30. We had a really nice night. Ed and Kristi were going to the N.C. State game today, so they had a little date night together, eating at Ruth's Chris and staying at a nice hotel. Ed went to NCSU and I'm sure they're already tailgating by now! Game starts at noon. David is supposed to go with Ed and his friend dovehunting today. Hope he is up to it---there have been few dove for the last few years, so it's more a "drive around and see" guy thing!
Hope you're celebrating September in a big way today! xoxos! 🙏 The kids have cheered me up. 💗💗😊
