Grandpa is Coming for a Visit........

It is Alan's Dad and he will pick him up later today.  He is flying in from Georgia.  We are getting all ready for his arrival.  LOOK.....Lexi has been helping away.  We have........
mowed the grass
vacuumed
dusted
steam cleaned the high traffic areas
cleaned the spare bedroom
made up the bed with clean bedding
mopped
and cleaned the windows
We even hit a garage sale early this morning and I'll show you what we got later this week.
Now it is time for some of this........
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.♥

Oh, how fun! A visit from Grandpa! Now I've decided - I need a little Lexie to help me out! This young lady is truly amazing and I know you're so proud of her, Darlene! She's a doll!

I wish I had a helper like Lexi! It sure looks like she does a great job!

Have fun with your company. We're having company for dinner on Monday night and then out of town company on Tuesday. I guess I'd better get busy cleaning. Can I borrow Lexi for a few days!!

Kerin said...

Hope you have a great visit and a wonderful weekend!!!
It's fantastic that Lexi pitched in to get the cleaning done!!!
Can't wait to see what you got at the yard sales!

Libby said...

Look at poor Cinderella doing all that housework!! Thank goodness she has the pool to cool off her aching muscles!!

Joanna said...

Hope you have a wonderful visit!! Y'all did a lot of work and laying by the pool was the perfect ending!

Manuela@TPOH said...

I would have been happy to hang out in the pool today! It's so hot here already - more like August than June!

You guys have been really busy getting ready for your special guest. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time with Grandpa!

Hello Darlene, I love your clean up post. It makes me laugh. There is no better motivation for cleaning than company coming. I haven't had any company lately. Don't you want to come so I get the inclination to clean? HA!

How nice to have Lexi's grandpa come for a visit. She deserves a break after cleaning so hard. The pool looks so inviting. A lovely way to cool off.

Have a wonderful weekend with your FIL.
Love ya, Jeanne

Hi Darlene
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend with Grandpa. I imagine that you and Lexi were ready for a rest by the pool after all that preparation. Have a graet time.

Being married to a Grandpa, I can sy "Grandpa's are the best!"
Send that Lexi my way. I could use a helper like that! We don't have a pool but there is one in town with a big slide and I have a 15 year old granddaughter she could hang with! LOL ( My granddaughter isn't so big on chores here--too many at home.)
Enjoy your time with Grandpa!

Sounds like you all did what I did and just a little bit of hard labor for my little Lexi...she is getting where she says she is so tired of house cleaning...lol she has a lot to learn! We did enjoy our pool and can't wait to jump in tonight after work...it is a nice way to end the day!

Wow did not know you have relatives in Georgia...this is where I live. Middle Ga that is...60 miles south of Macon.

Farm Chick Paula said...

Sounds like you all are going to have a wonderful time! And looks like Lexi still had the chance to get some pool time in, too!

Lexi looks like such a great little helper.

Hi Darlene, you would think I have nothing to do today. I just dropped by to say hello and have a wonderful day. Now I must do laundry and clean. Grand kids week is June 19th.
Love ya, Jeanne

Grandpa visits are great. Looks like he is flying in from our neck of the woods.

Lots of cleaning topped off with relaxing. Sounds like what we need to do around here today.
