FABBY: What I've Been Doing.

How fast these three weeks with the girls are going by, even though it's been hard work, what with waking up early, (6am) so they can go to school, dressing them, combing and fixing their hair, preparing breakfast, trying to make Cayetana eat it, (a bad eater) etc and etc!! Pick them up at two different schedules, eating lunch at two different schedules too. In the afternoon, I would drive them to tennis classes, three times a week, two times a week to ballet, outings, ice cream, birthday parties and so ooonnn...Every night I bathe them, dry their long hair and put them to sleep with a little story..lol, lol....GOODNESS ME!! I always say: God is smart, He wants us to be young to have kids and do so much chores with them...but when we're grannies it's fun, not complaining, but VERY INTENSE!!!!!!

OK...so much for that. Here are some pics, no tablescape...DIDN'T HAVE TIME!!!

 Victoria last Saturday going to her School Olympics, where she was performing too.
 Victoria getting ready.

 There she is...with her hoola hoop!
 Going to a mass for the last day of Merry's Month with Cayetana's class.
 Perla, my Sil's grandma, at your left, with Cayetana and Victoria in the middle and Yolanda, Sofia, my daughter's grandma..(my mom). I love this pic as the kids are with their GREAT-GRANDMOTHERS. Priceless!!

 At the Park Zoo. I also took them there when mother was visiting me. I didn't want to show more animal pics as you've seen them all! The weather is HOT here...90 and humid! I'm not particularly happy in this kind of HOT WEATHER!
 Victoria was so proud wearing this pretty top she adores, caz her mom bought for her at the Disney Cruise store..lol..
 I also took them on a little train their school has and Cayetana loves it..hahahehe..
BYE, BYE....
Here are some pics of us lately . I am cleaning away so my daughter and Sil find their lovely nest in ship shape too!  Ok, I got a a lady to help me these last two days, so we can make banners and balloons to welcome their parents home.

Thank you for visiting us. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I will, my daughter is coming back Saturday with her hubby, which I can't wait to see how he is doing after the spine surgery.

You are the world's most glamourous grandmother! I love the photo with the two girls and their lovely great-grandmothers -- priceless.

All the best to your daughter and her husband.
Now go take a well-deserved rest!

Fabby - Those little girls are just adorable AND beautiful. They take right after their grandmother-You are a beautiful woman and so is your Mom...and mother-in-law, too.

You have done a great job with the girls and I know that your dd and sil are happy that you helped them out. God bless you, Fabby. I hope you can get caught up on your rest soon. xo Diana

Dan mucho trabajo y no estamos para este traqueteo, pero cuando nos dejan las extrañamos.
Beso y se feliz con lo que la vida te ha regalado

Cindy said...

Hi Fabby, You have beautiful grand daughters, and you are so right. Young people are meant to raise children, but it's so nice for us to be able to enjoy them and help out when we are needed. You sound like you are a wonderful grandma. How wonderful that the girls know their great grandmas too.
Hugs, Cindy

Kathleen said...

You must be exhausted! That is a lot of work, and 3 weeks is a long time! Good grandma!
It will be good to get home and relax, but I know you will miss them! They are lovely!

Jann Olson said...

Hi Fabby, I hear ya girl. I had a couple of grandies for a week and running them and picking them up from school was enough to wear me out. Sure did enjoy them, but yes God is so smart. The girls are so cute, look a bit like grandma. I bet they just loved having you there.

Laura said...

Sounds like a lot of work but fun. Your grands are beautiful. Their hair, so gorgeous. You look fabulous.It looks like they may not want you to leave because they were so well cared for. So glad your SIL is well enough to come home! Have a great (relaxing) weekend Fabby!

Lizabeth @ Infuse With Liz said...

Hello Fabby!
Looks like you've had your hands full! Your granddaughters will always remember this special time you've had together! I hope your son in-law has come through this with great success!

Diane said...

Fabby - you are one fabulous grandmother! I had my three grands for one week and it was brutal!! Love them, but "whew"!! So glad all is well with your son-in-law!!

lulumusing said...

I totally get it....when you have the kids there's little time for anything else. I've started letting the granddaughters create the table when they are around. Have fun.

Donna@Conghaile Cottage said...

Oh Fabby, WHAT WILL YOU DO when they go home??? It will be SO QUIET. This was a fun post. Your little ones are So BEAUTIFUL(they take after their Grandma)! "I LOVE their names". You have some GORGEOUS pictures that really need to be framed...
I'm praying for your SIL, hope everything moves along for them smoothly.
Big Squishy Hugs to you,

SavannahGranny said...

Fabby, you have been so busy. I know you had fun with your grandgirls. They are as beautiful as you. Victoria really looks like you.
The pic with the great grandmothers is truly priceless. What a blessing to have all of you in their lives.
I am glad your daughter and husband are coming home because that means he is doing well.
It also means you can get some rest.
Love to you, Ginger

Stacy Curran said...

I've been doing a lot of the same but not having time to write about it! Thank you so much for continuing to comment on my blog even though I haven't been around at all!! I hope you have a great weekend!

LV said...

Even tho it is tiring, still a great way to spend time with family.

Dolores said...

Oh Fabby, it made me tired just reading of all you've been doing.
You've made wonderful memories for you and the girls.

You, your mother and granddaughters are so beautiful!!

Home sweet home and sweet rest is going to feel so good for you...
Hugs my sweet friend!

Alycia Nichols said...

I feel totally tired just READING about everything you have had to do!!! I agree...leave the child rearing to the young people! It's fun to step in and help out, but God intended for us to take a break as we "mature." :-) Keeping my fingers crossed that Giancarlo is feeling much, much better. I hope you all have a good weekend!

Babs said...

Whew! I'll guess that you're pleasantly tired. How much fun...and work to be with your granddaughters. They are beautiful young ladies. Will the girls soon be out of school for the summer?
Thanks for sharing your photos.

Who needs tablescaping when you have those wonderful granddaughters to enjoy??? Looks as if they're enjoying your company, as well! Blessings to your son~in~law and his continued recovery!

Suzy said...

I'm so glad that you were able to spend this time with your beautiful granddaughters, Fabby. I can just imagine how much they must love their beautiful grandma! I know what you mean about God giving children to the young. I love every minute with my grandgirls, but you described it perfectly when you said "intense". ;) I'm really glad that your daughter and son-in-law are doing well and coming home. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

spooks said...

My dear Fabby, I can imagine how tired you are. That kind of work is not meant for grandmas like us anymore, lol, but we sure love it, don't we? God is wise for not letting grandmas get pregnant at our age cause I know we can;' do that kind of work week after week after week permanently. You are beautiful and your granddaughters are so pretty. Hope your SIL continues to get better...Christine

Mary said...

You've been busy, busy! What adorable girls~ I know they've had fun spending time with you :)

AshTreeCottage said...
