I learned earlier today that Bethy and the kids are coming over for the weekend. Sleep over ... woohoo! They usually arrive around dinner time, that's around 5pm but today Bethy was running late so they didn't get here until almost 7. Cecil and I had already eaten. Sara and Molly and Miles were here already. And we sat around and waited for either Lilly or Ireland or JJ to come busting through the door yelling NaNa or in JJ's case PaPa. JJ came in first followed by Ireland. I got my hugs and kisses from them and they went looking for PaPa. A few minutes later Lilly came in and close behind her was her Mommy, my Bethy both of them loaded down with bags clothes and bags of snacks and just more bags, I really don't know what's in all of those bags but she brings them everytime she comes for a weekend. I don't ask ... I know she'll tell me she has 3 kids and that takes a lot of stuff for a sleep over. I had 3 kids and at 1 time all 3 of them were young. When we went somewhere for vacation I packed. It still didn't take as much as she brings. I think it's all her stuff, hair products and boots!! She likes both of those things way to much.
Ok they have been here for almost 2 hours now. Take a look at the picture I took of how everyone is relaxing.
Ireland has PaPa rubbing her back. Lilly is lounging. JJ is in the next picture. PaPa fashioned a steering wheel for him to attach to the fireplace damper handle. He can use it anytime the fireplace is not in use ... of course. Here's JJ .. Usually he has on his superhero outfit but he is saving that for tomorrow. I will get a picture this time and post it tomorrow.
Sara took Molly and Miles home instead of joining us tonight. Sometimes she stays, sometimes she doesn't. This time Molly didn't stay either and she usually does. So it's still a house full and although Bethy kids are extremely good at every other moment of the day ... at bedtime when they stay here they do give her some trouble. Cecil and I stay out of it unless she needs back up. After all is done and the kiddo's drift off or just quiet down I will tuck Bethy in on the couch so she can play with her computer or watch TV with us or snack or just relax. She admits she's here to be tucked in by her every love'n Momma. It's my job and I like it fine!
Tell you more about our sleep over tomorrow
