Who stole my cookie?
Highlights from today: (Click here for today's pictures) 
  • Keaton coughed so much at midnight that we picked her up out of bed to lay with us.  She eventually needed a bottle but then was as happy and cough free as one could be.  She ate again at 5 all cuddled up with me and then I put her back in her bed and she decided that she didn't like her bed at all!
  • The plan was to pick strawberries this morning but the weather looked so threatening that we decided to postpone and of course the rain didn't come and didn't come.  I was just afraid that we would get out there and it would start pouring.  The plan is to now go on Tuesday.
  • Reagan was ready to start her school work and managed to get phonics and math done early, early this morning before breakfast.  We didn't do anything else since we had lots of company but I did manage to sneak in a few school books at lunch!
  • The sheet rock people were here early again and so were the brick guys.  We thought they were going to cut out our window and doorway to the bathroom but all that was done today was knocking out the step.  Supposedly they will come tomorrow to do those things-not holding my breath!  Ha!  Though the cabinet man did come as expected to take a few more measurements.
  • Kennedy came over and played all day long.  The kids started playing outside and the morning seemed to fly by.  At one point I lost Campbell only to find her walking out of the house holding a handful of popsicles.  As I took them away from her she kept saying "me pass out"-she wanted to pass out the popsicles to everyone.
  • Nonna and Pops came over for a few minutes to check on the progress of the house and to see the kiddos.  Keaton was tired and Nonna and Pops both bounced her a bit before finally putting her in bed.  
  • We had lunch inside and the kids started playing inside.  Kennedy and Reagan played well together but the boys were in a mood and just made things crazy for awhile.  Soon I had to put Campbell and Graham down for a nap or I was going to quickly need one!  Campbell must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed because she had been fussy all day long.  She went to bed easily and Graham fell asleep on the couch and Keaton was snoring in my room (really snoring-so cute).
  • Keaton eventually woke up and I fed her in my comfy green chair and then Graham joined us.  We then all slept for a few minutes until Keaton started grabbing at Graham's face.  It was so sweet-she was just touching all over his face.  Before too long, everyone was up and I made all of the kids pick up the school room and the toy room.  Seriously, they had trashed those two rooms but quickly picked them up when I asked (and asked again and possibly asked again).  
  • Grannymom and Grandpa came over tonight and ate supper with us.  The kids ate and then played more before I passed out dessert.  Soon it was time for Grannymom and Grandpa to leave and they asked Campbell if she wanted to go with them and she certainly did.  That little thing was so proud-she grabbed her bag, put on her shoes and coat and started hugging everyone good bye.  My little girl is growing up.  If I was betting, I would bet that Campbell fell asleep on the way Grannymom's house.
  • Reagan, Anderson, Graham and Kennedy had a "pajama party" before bed.  They planned this out and they played with a balloon, played with a parachute, had a snack and a movie.  Big times!  They are still watching their movie and then all are going to bed (hopefully quickly and quietly!)
