News from Camp Gigi

What a fun week it's been (for me at least ;)!  I haven't had my littles here for a whole week in . . . . well, ever I think.  It seems there are always jobs and responsibilities to rush home to, but we finally had an entire week to do what we wanted -- swim, and swim some more. . . and then swim some more, lots watching of favorite old movies (this {thank you Gumbo Lily}, this, & this {among others}), going to see a funny new movie ("Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" {but enough already with the barfing and poop -- again please Hollywood moguls?}) driving of the golf cart all over the place, visiting with friends, drinking of tea, crocheting & knitting (for Mom & Granny),  & creating and drawing. . . .
.

. . such as this cutest ever kitty drawn by the famous artiste, Jordan. . . . 
(I love this kitty so much, I want to embroider it on t-shirts!)



. . . who is also now an accomplished pitter of cherries (and will soon be featured on Jimmy Fallon's late show).



One of us has developed the unusual habit of wearing a tea cosy on one's head while eating breakfast (I won't say who).


And one amazing daughter has delighted us all with her fabulous cooking!  Just look at this incredible Pavlova she made for us -- it's utterly over the top delicious!  It was supposed to have raspberries on top, but we couldn't find any here in Little Rabbit ;(.  Oh well, it was soooooo good anyway. 


Granny tried to do fairy toes (inspired by these), but it didn't work out very well -- maybe b/c Granny can hardly see her toes anymore, you think?  And my right big toe is still fat and weird(er) looking from being broken a couple of months ago -- oh well.  I wanted to do mermaid nails on someone (I won't say who, but she wears a tea cosy on her head), but she wanted plain polish -- no glitter -- what is that all about?!
Oh, and that's the new bathroom floor -- finally -- yay!



And we couldn't have made it without the always good natured help from Big Sister!  She's my late night movie watching buddy and go to girl.  She had to drink lots of coffee (mostly hot milk) to keep up her energy ;).

I'll be back later with more pics and updates from Camp Gigi.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Fun! Your fairy toes are lovely! I've been looking at tea cozies on Rav. For the tea pot not a hat! Ha ha ha!
We went to the pool today and enjoyed being mermaids and a merman! Off to the movies tonight! I'm sleeping like the dead. I'm pooped already and we have a big day tomorrow. When Sunday comes around, this granny is going to take a looooooooong nap! That Pavlova looks divine!

Camp Gigi looks like such fun! Delicious food, painted sparkle toes, swimming, good movies, and togetherness.

I'm looking forward to further updates. Enjoy those sweet grands.

Hi Girls! Gigi Camp was so much fun, and I loved having my peeps here for a whole week. However, Gigi is pooped and I do not know how my darling daughter keeps up with these very energetic little folks on a daily basis!
And K, my little girl is a bit camera shy -- I tried to catch her but she's too fast for me ;).
Hearts,
GG
