Katie Mae

If your baby is "beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time," you're the grandma."    ~Theresa Bloomingdale

You are such a blessing to our family little Katie girl!
We are so glad you were sent to enrich our lives!

Gramma's Brag Book

One of the perks of being a Gramma is that you can boast and brag about your Grandkids and you don't have to worry about giving them an inflated opinion of themselves. They should feel good about themselves because they are all unbelievable! Of course they're the smartest, cutest and the fastest, they take after their Gramma Luvlee!
  Just a few of my brilliant Luvlees and their accomplishments this week.

Science fair

On the way to school to look at her science fair project, Korbi informed us that she wouldn't be sad if she didn't get an award. By the time we pulled into the parking lot she had revised that statement to she wouldn't be sad unless she got third place. By the time she entered the building she was a nervous wreck and didn't even want to look at her project because she knew she was a TOTAL failure. She wandered up and down the rows and rows of projects and we heard her squeal out loud. By the time we reached her expecting gloom and doom she had burst into tears, happy tears I might add, because she had a big fat Grand Champion Ribbon for the 4th grade. YEE-HAW!!!

Korbi swabbed four fast food hamburgers and grew bacteria cultures to show that it isn't just hamburger that you're eating. One hamburger grew ten different types of bacteria!
 Where's the beef Wendy's?
It's probably somewhere under all that bacteria!

Faster Than Greased Lightening
(Well, maybe not faster than greased lightening but they're sure cuter than greased lightening!)

Hollywood Premiere Party!

The girls were able to relax and get ready for their Red Carpet Premiere by spending a relaxing hour at the world famous "Moments with Mandy " Spa.  As they read and listened to soothing music, the starlets received facials, pedicures, manicures, complete makeup and new hair styles.

Welcome to Hollywood's Biggest Night! The Premiere of "Woody & Barbie's Love Boat Cruise" & "Karate Kid XXII - The Golden Years". Bring on the boas and bling and watch as the stars strut their stuff on the Red Carpet.We join some of Hollywoods biggest stars as they "Whine" and dine and dance the night away.
 The Stars Arrive

Wow! The girls were screaming as those Hollywood Heart Throbs Corbin Bleu
and Zac Efron of " High School Musical" made their appearance.

He's mean , he's green and ready to be seen!
Everyone stepped back in fright when The Incredible Hulk stepped out of the limo.

Big Mama and The Hee Haw Girl showed a little attitude when the paparazzi go too close.

Rumors of his death to the contrary, The King lives and he has arrived!!!

Our glammed up starlets make their apperance.

What would a Premiere be without handsome hunks!

Old Hollywood personified by Audrey Hepburn.

Party Girls Miley Cyrus and Ashley Tisdale

Miley & Billy Ray Cyrus

Sharpay & Ryan Evans of High School Musical

And finally that iconic "Old" Hollywood couple-Papa and Gramma Luvlee!

A Bug's Life

Help! Bug Attack!!
Our bug collector is in the wrong profession! She runs screaming every time she spies a little creepy crawly. She better get over it because today we're going to get down and dirty with the worms. We'll spread our wings and attend the Ugly Bug Ball. We'll even get all wound up in Miss Spider's Web. Today we'll creep, crawl and fly. After all "It's A Bug's Life!"

Our cute little Bug Collector!

Come into my parlor said the spiders to the flies!

The spider kids wove a very  large and intricate web with yarn and tent stakes. Then they invited their naive, unsuspecting mamas to lunch. Little did the mamas know, they were on the menu! Once they entered the web they were trapped by those sneaky little spiders!

Cocoon Relay

Each child turned into a cocoon by being encased in Toilet Paper. Once each cocoon was formed they had to hop down to the finish line, burst out of their casings and fly home.

After bustin' out of the joint they became...

...beautiful butterflies!

And Lady Bugs!

We each picked out a ceramic bug to paint. We were able to be as colorful and
creative as we could be and of course they all turned out just "Bee"- utifully!

Fly Swatter Relay

The teams had to race with a fly on their swatter and deposit the poor squished creature into a trash can, then race back. Oh, and they have to do it with fly glasses on so everything looks like it would to a fly.

The world had a kaleidoscope effect with these on.

Hey, you're buggin' me!

"Swats" the matter with you!

No Body Likes Me, I Think I'll Go And Eat Worms

Gramma brought out a big planter of flowers and dirt. She told us how worms live in the dirt and help to nourish it so that plants are healthier. Then all of a sudden she scooped up a handful of dirt and started eating it saying if it's good for plants it's probably good for people too! Well, if it's good enough for Gramma, it's good enough for us too!

I made the dirt with cheap Oreo's and have since then found some very cool realistic worms at OTC.

Each child was given a personalized bug box . They went out in search of
hidden plastic bugs, then they searched for the real deal!

Caterpillar Cafe

Dinner that night was served at The Caterpillar Cafe. The food is so good here you'll get butterflies in your stomach...


These simple ladybug snacks were made from Ritz Crackers spread with cream cheese and topped with half of a slit cherry tomato for the body and half of an olive for the head. The dots were black food coloring and the antaneas were green onion stem slivers.


..and snails too!

After we finished our dinner at the cafe, Gramma gave us each a special Ladybug cookie and told us how great Ladybugs are and what they do for the plants. She then took us to the side of the house were she...

..emptied out 5,000 Ladybugs into our waiting hands!

They crawled all over us and tickled...

..and then we gently placed them on the plants and trees so they could have a feast too!

I was able to order Ladybugs and have them delivered to me. You can keep them in the
refrigerator until just before releasing them. Very Cool Experience!
