Whew! I’m worn out from all of this fun, but since I am fortunate enough to have all four of my grandchildren living nearby, I’m not going to complain. 

I don’t know if it is a valid linkup or not, but I’m linking to Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.  I know Marty is much too sweet to kick me out of the linkup!  Thank you for being such a sweet hostess Marty.


Thank you for coming by to visit our back to school fun!  (I just know you want one of those cupcakes!  I think I’ll be vacuuming up sprinkles for another week or two!)  laurie

Can I come live with you? Everything you do is so magical! You grandchildren are very lucky to have you! I hope I can do half as well with mine;)!


Jacqueline said...

What a fun party and fun post. I loved your old school books. The cupcakes are too cute, especially with feet. The kiddies are just adorable and you make it so exciting to be going back to school. You are great!

Patty said...

When I grow up I wanna be a cool grandma like you. :)

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Cute as can be Laurie!
You are the most creative one!
What cute grandkids too, I just love the old fashioned school stuff!
Boy, those are lucky kids!
I am starting to think you are really the energizer bunny incognito!
You have so much energy!
Hugs friend,

You just made some wonderful memories for your grands. Yes - sprinkles can go a long way like glitter does. :D

This is so much fun, Laurie and the grands are having a ball. They are just so cute!....Christine

Paula said...

Hey Laurie. Your Back To School pictures are great and your grands are all adorable. I agree with other posts, can I come live with you????? LOL!!! See you soon.

Just Breathe said...

Really cute pictures. You are very blessed, your grandchildren are adorable.

Kathleen said...

They are so cute! 3 more weeks of freedom here! I don't see mine very often once school starts, so I will enjoy these last few weeks when they can be out here.
I give your tabletop an A! Very creative, and lots of textures.
And that is the only chalk I could use! All the others made my skin peel! really!

They are too sweet and too cute! olive♥

Joy said...

Great post, I am counting the days until the kids around here head back to school! Happy Monday!

Shelia said...

Hi Laurie! OH, what fun. Look at all those cute little grands! I see some of the books I had in school! I love the chalk board! Can I just come over and play at your house? :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Laurie next to me you have to be the best Granny girl ever ha ha!! I loved seeing the grand babies again...I know they have great times at your house...Hope you have a GREAT week girl friend...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh fun! I would love to be baking cupcakes too -- what do your grands think of your old school books? I know we used to read my parents old books and think they were a hoot! Now I wish I still had them.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Laurie, I really want to be one of your grandchildren. You do the most fun things in the whole world. I am always so impressed. I know they must think you are the best grandma in the universe, at least they should. Love it all. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Sarah said...

Laurie, first let me say that those grands look a lot like you. They are so cute! I wish I could have been there to join in the fun.
Secondly, that table is perfect from the chalkboard mats to the cafeteria trays to all the school supplies. And thirdly, these mosaics are really cool. You've done it again. Great tablescape! ~ Sarah

Christie said...

Oh, Laurie! This looks like too much fun! I am so sad that school is starting! I contemplated homeschooling my three kids just to keep them home and do all these fun things with them...but, alas, they do need an education! I know you are enjoying having those sweet babies so close by! Enjoy!

Looks like everyone had a great time! I love the cupcake holders, just saw some with chicken feet this weekend-might have to go check them out again:@)

Sue said...

Holy Cow! It is fun time w/grandma at your house. Love the inventiveness and the originality of this table. Adorable, Laurie!
hugs, Sue

P.S. How DO you create your magical mosaics? More than one program? They are so GOOD!!

Kathleen Ellis said...

What a FUN grandma you are!!! How wonderful that they all live close can have sooo much fun!
Have a beautiful day, Laurie!
;-D Kathleen

susan said...

I can't decide if I'd rather have your grandchildren or have you be MY grandmother :) Oh how lucky and blessed you all are...making memories for a lifetime! I did not paint in the 100 plus heat. I was afraid it would bubble up :)

Tardevil said...

The kiddos and their cupcakes are too cute! Love how you did the photos...So when do you have time to ever sleep?
