Last week, Mike was overwhelmed with homework from his class leaving very little time for family. SO this weekend was all about reconnecting. Friday night was a blast! We grilled in the early evening and let the girls sit up at the table with us in their booster seats. Their little faces were all lit up with that "I'm such a big girl" glow...talk about mixed emotions for that excitement. *smile*
They had their first bites of steak and green bean casserole. Quite a success. I think Hope is officially a green bean monster. I couldn't get them to her fast enough. I was tempted to let them feed themselves, but I'm still struggling with the whole food mess thing. I know...I should get over it already but it's hard. For now, we'll keep the messes on the tile where a mop can easily swipe it away.
Anyhoo...we caught the movie Monsters Inc. right at the beginning and boy were they hooked. It's not very often that the girls are still enough to where they'll cuddle up in our laps, but they were all about this movie and sat all snuggly and warm in Moma and daddy's laps with their blankets. (I was eating it up!) However, that only lasted all but 10 minutes.
|Don't you just love those toothless smiles...I'll be sad the day when all of her teeth are there.|
Then they were all over the floor dancing and jumping, giggling and snorting at the movie. Savannah even managed to weasel her way into their book basket. Hmm...
It was such a fun night that we let them stay up til 9 only because they were so lively and in good moods. We had so much fun. When I layed in bed later on, I thought to myself....
"these are the moments that are only here for a short moment. Gone in a blink of an eye. I am so blessed to have such a silly and loving family. Thank you Lord."
On Saturday, we got up and went to breakfast at Cracker Barrell. The girls enjoyed their pancakes while Moma and Daddy enjoyed their coffee. Yum yum!!!
Happy Monday Everyone! What a great kick-off to a great week!
