Smile, Laugh, Giggle

Hi again!
I've had all 3 grandchildren today. My DIL asked if I could have the 2 girls because she was going to lunch with a friend who she hadn't seen for a while and wanted to take the little one with her. We had a good day together and the girls watched a DVD and played with the toys. Little Isaac got dropped off about 5:30 p.m. because Mum and Dad were going out together for a meal with a workmate and his girlfriend. Lisel got back after 10 p.m. and Isaac was asleep and so were the girls. Layla and Amelia are having a sleepover! We've kicked Papa out of our bed because the girls like to sleep in there with me. We have a king size bed so there is room for 3 pillows which they really like arranging just right, LOL.
It's our youngest daughter's birthday today and she and her boyfriend decided to go to the drive-in theatre and found that they flattened the battery on the car. You have to have the radio on to hear the audio of the film. Hubby was going to have to go and help them out, but they found out the staff usually go around the grounds checking to see if any one has battery problems and they got the car started. Hubby suggested they come back here for a while and hook the battery up to the charger for a while, so hopefully it will start tomorrow!!!
I sat down quite late to try and make a card and was just not getting anywhere. I've persevered and come up with this. Not sure it is quite what I wanted to achieve but it's finished apart from the inside.
Thanks for stopping by,
I wish you a happy weekend,
