Saturday started off great- The kids woke up and let Mommy sort of sleep in- They were busy creating an "army" out of Lego's. It's so sweet how they play together now- I'm so lucky that Chris and Addie really are best friends...that is until they get great ideas together that can prove disastrous- like getting out sharpie markers and "customizing" the Lego men. Ya know- adding extra features to make them original. Luckily- this time it didn't involve getting permanent marker anywhere...
We had our fancy breakfast using Addie's strawberries and it was a hit!
After the games, we went to visit Pappy- and of course Addie was Pap's darlin'. He then looked at Chris and said, "Tell me something... Why are your ears so big?" Chris was hilarious- he looked right back at Pappy and sweetly said, "Because I hear really well."
We came home and had half the neighborhood over to play- and I was making Addie and her friend play separate from the boys... Addie was pouting and fussing to be in with the boys and I said, "Addie- Don't be such a party pooper." Addie's friend quickly said, "Miss Shelley, you just said a potty word." Oops- I guess I need to not say pooper.:)
The day wrapped up in my most favorite of ways- We went to Chuck and Jackie's for a family cookout. We got to play with Callan and the kids were tired out and went to bed easy!
And that my dear friends- was a perfect fun-filled day when Daddy is away hard at work!
