Gotta Love Grandma

This past weekend MM and I went to Salt Lake City to see my brother graduate college. The school asked that we not bring our children if we could avoid it, so we asked MM's mom to stay with them. Both Grandma and the kids were excited to spend the weekend together. Grandma because she could spoil the kids and the kids because they knew they'd get spoiled.

Me? I don't get too worked up about it. I was a bit nervous about leaving them when I considered how much sugar they were sure to have (which was confirmed when my MIL showed up with a "funnel cake kit" and told me they were going to have great fun), not to mention what the state of our house would be when we got home, but overall I was just glad MM's mom was willing to stay with the kids.

Of course, that was before my brother-in-law started texting MM and I pictures. Pictures of the kids and dogs running a muck in the house. Pictures of the house, period. I about died when I got this one:

Yes, that is my house, people. Not that you can see it for all the crap every where. Apparently they decided to build forts and have a sleepover in the living room. Lucky for me (or maybe for them?) they cleaned everything up before we got home.

But yesterday I was searching for the tape and couldn't find any. I asked the kids where all the tape was and they laughed and said they used it all to build their fort. Yes, they used tape to hold it together. About 6 rolls of it, if memory serves. *eye roll*

I love how the dog is outside just itching to get back in with the kids ;) So I think the dog missed you.

It looks like the kids had a good time. I bet they can't wait until you and MM go out of town again :-)

omg hilarious! Well at least they cleaned it up. You'll be searching for things for months!
