I woke up before anyone else. I tried to be quiet so the kids wouldn't hear me. Bethy is sleeping on the couch and because I am a mom and just can't help myself I put another blanket over her so she would be warm, warm, warm then I went into the den. I shut the door slowly thinking slow is less noisy but I am mistaken, I almost said wrong but we know that just can't be ... I am woman! Anyway back to our sleep over. I made a lot of noise trying to be quiet and within 5 minutes I heard the 1st soft tapping on the den door. Hugs and kisses, then another tapping, in comes a sleepy one. there is only 1 more child to go, JJ hasn't tapped on the den door yet. There he is. "Good morning and how did you sleep". All I get is a smile from him and then a question. Is PaPa up yet? Can I go wake him? I said not yet and now our day has started. Bethy has the coffee on. I found later that she kinda missed the trash when dumping the old grounds. I will get to that mess eventually.
I have some pictures of breakfast. I didn't cook. Sara came over with Molly and Miles. Shortly after she arrived she started on the eggs and Bethy brought her waffle maker so she got going on making waffles. Those 2 girls are something. It is nice to know, and I can tell, anyone and everyone that is near them when they are together can tell that those 2 grew close and became friends as adults. Each of them tells me that she is my favorite but actually I wouldn't know what to do without either one of them. I do wish Missy would come over more so she could get into the mix. She's fun too.
Well here are the pictures I mentioned.
First is the picture of what I saw when I left the den. Cartoons are on of course, it is saturday.
Now for the making of breakfast
Bethy is waiting on her waffle maker to give us waffles.
The kids liked it and here is proof.
Not all fun and games though. there is a big ole tear in that eye. He wanted to play with the cat but the cat wanted to show him how fast she can move. Very fast. He barely knew what happened just that his face now hurt by his ear. Oh... the noise involved when JJ gets hurt. Poor baby. He did recover quickly after some tender care from his mommy.
I loaded the dishwasher 3 times just today. Cecil loaded it the 4th time. They wore me out. I'm going to bed right after this blog is posted. Let's see what tomorrow brings us.
