What Will She Paint?

So many friends I met here...!

My Christmas email I sent with the pics below attached.
For Thanksgiving all five grand children came to see
Nana and Opa's new house.
Their first question was, "When can we stay?"
Then they saw some things had not changed.
The dress up box with clothes and toys was still there.
So they dressed up and put on a performance for the adults.
Fun, fun, fun!

I am like you, Princess Ilany,
hats are a real asset to one's personality!

Super mom, "You don't know what these are,
but they're called suspenders..."

Disney farm boy, Spiffy or what?

I love pearls! Don't you?

The adults were so enthralled with their imagination,
that not everyone got into a pic.
Oh well, see you next time!

Little kids tell the story better than us, especially that of Chrsitmas.

Very charming, a few old clothes and the imagination of children are a recipe for delight.

it seems that when children become adults they shut off the possibilities they have seen there before.

No lack of imagination with children -it depends on if their parents allow them to "roam" in their enchanted world:)

Hope you had enjoyable days with your family!

jeannette stgermain said...

Adorable!! I wanted to pop in and tell you I'd be honored if you grabbed the photo of my shed in the back yard for a painting. Definitely :)

jeannette stgermain said...

Thank you, friend! Have no idea when I'll do it, but when it's finished I'll alert you - thanks again:)

How fun to have a dress up box! That's a great spark for imagination.

I can see the creative apples have not fallen far from the tree.

And yes, pearls make the outfit every time!

Looks like fun! Lovely pictures.

Whitemist said...

Looks like fun!
You have a lot of that don't you?

jeannette stgermain said...

Thank you Jane:) They sometimes say that you enjoy your kids' children more than your own -I tend to believe it!

jeannette stgermain said...

Yes, it certainly does develop imagination!

jeannette stgermain said...

Thanks for that obeservation, Rudee. Do they do "Life story" at your hospice for the patients?

jeannette stgermain said...

thank you -it was fun!

When you are a therapist, one needs to recharge regularly, otherwise one might snap one day (I've seen it happen to some of my colleagues) - my family really helps with that!

Angie Muresan said...

Precious!! Especially love the darling with the pearls.

jeannette stgermain said...

She is our miracle grand child -she was born with her intestines outside her body and was operated on, on the 3rd day of her life, but she's a feisty one:)
