On top of all of that there was bedtime stories. We loved reading 'The Cookie Thief' by Francis Gilbert and Ben Quesel after singing Who Took the Cookies from the Cookie Jar. The kiddos all loved singing along. Then we launched into our night time story. Thomas notices that the cookies are missing from cookie jars all over the neighborhood. When everyone is doing all they can to have them watched. Finally Kristina decides to set up a trap to catch the cookie thief. Thomas wants to help but is reluctant to hide behind the couch where it is dark and small. With much prodding Kristina finally gets Thomas to move the couch....and wow, there are the cookies. But who is the Cookie Thief?
We have also been fighting all kinds of sinus problems. Tissues are running very low here. So we also enjoyed Cougar Cub Tales "The Sneezy Wheezy Day" by Sharon Cramer. What a great way to learn that helping each other it makes being under the weather a lil easier to handle. Reading how brother cub isn’t feeling well and his sister and brother cub seek help for his cold. They encounter many silly home remedies. One friend even tells brother cub, “Tickle your nose with the tail of a goose and do it before the next blue moon rise!” they appreciate all of the recommendations help but the final remedy is his sister's love. I know the kiddos were more than willing to help get tissues for Princess Emma after reading our book. The Sneezy Wheezy Day e-book is available as a free download on Amazon through Saturday. What a great deal...go download your copy.
Add in the fun of singing along to the Veggie Tales and you can see we had a full weekend. This time we had "If I Sang a Silly Song" and "God Loves You Very Much". Of course College Girl jumped right on in. She loved Veggie Tales as a teen and is having a blast sharing it with her lil sister Princess Emma and her niece and nephew.

I loved my weekend. I loved my grandbabes. I loved Princess Emma. And more so I loved the memories we make every time we spend time together. Thanks so much to all the ones who send me books and videos to share with them.
