Fun With the Fam

The last two days at my parents house have been a blast. The highlights: Maddy decided she was TERRIFIED of my brother Jeff for some reason. The first time she saw him she ran away crying saying “He gonna hurt you!” The best part is that the next time she saw him she said “It’s Uncle Jeff!” and ran to sit on his lap. Silly girl. Benny decided that it was a good idea to crawl back behind the TV and then got stuck. I really wanted to get a picture but he was sooooo upset I decided that would be evil. Instead here is a picture of the results after I pulled him out.

Yesterday my sister Jen came over to mom’s with her two little girls (7&4) and 1 little boy (10 mos). Our friend Ruthanna also came over with her 6 girls ages 18 months to 12 years. We made tutu’s for the girls and painted fingernails. This was Maddy’s first time getting her nails painted. I was AMAZED at how well she sat still to get her pink nail polish applied. The result was very cute.

The pretty result

Maddy was thoroughly enjoying having a ton of people around, Benny on the other hand, was completely overwhelmed. Poor guy was so worked up and upset from all the commotion that he screamed for 45 minutes before we could calm him down enough to go to sleep. After a very late nap he decided it was a good idea to stay up until 12:30 before letting mommy go to sleep.

This morning I gave Benny a box of Kleenex, just for fun. Boy was it fun! He smiled while pulling one sheet out right after another. When the next kleenex failed to follow and they were stuck in the box he started growling and banging on it then quickly lost interest in favor of eating a peanut butter sandwich.


Maddy decided she needed a sandwich too and wanted to eat outside. Me and her enjoyed a nice PJ together on the porch swing. Tonight we are driving to Vegas to pick Corey up at the airport so there is a lot more fun on the way! The only way this day could be any better is if my hubby was here to share it with me.
