Relaxing with our family

Yesterday, Maria came over with her kids.  Since we are renovating our home, she went through things in her former bedroom and walked away with luggage and notebooks.  She then borrowed our TurboTax disk and did preliminary work on her computer.

My grandkids played with my homemade puppets and ran around the living room, screaming with laughter.  They do know how to have fun.

Here are photos of their time with us:

We discussed our plans to rent out the master bedroom as a separate unit.  Maria advised us to have stepping stones installed in the yard so that there would be no residue from shoes on our new carpet.  What a great idea!

It’s nice to have family close by.

    Oh Gigi, the first photo is the pick of the bunch – so natural, full of love and happiness – and look at the cheeky (proud) smiles with their grandad.
    Enjoy them and the fun they have being with you.
    Take care

    There is nothing like the laughter of little kids having fun, no matter how much ruckus they make.

    Yes it’s great when kids are nearby. I miss my boys, they are so far away, and I don’t see them often!

    Winning photos all, but I especially love the one of them sitting with David. They all three look so pleased to be together for the moment. Bravo on progress toward your rental unit goal.

    Have you thought of having a realtor list it on the mls? They have the connections to run credit & criminal checks? Plus they show it so you aren’t alone with an unknown party.
