December 22, 2014-Happy Birthday Campbell (one more time!)

Keaton goes on  play date!

  • After staying up so late last night, my little people were tired, tired and they all slept until 8:30.  Of course, even though they slept late, they really didn't still catch up on all of their sleep.  This made for some pretty almost fussy, almost cranky little people.  We avoided complete meltdowns by anyone but I had to work hard to keep everyone happy.
  • After our breakfast, we had our last day of school and no one really had too much to do.  Both of my boys finished and then I went to check on Reagan.  She was in the floor playing with Whitman and Keaton-that is sweet and all but I really wanted for her to finish school.  It took her about 45 minutes longer than the boys to finish and this did not make Reagan happy at all.  
  • When Reagan did finish her school, we all did a bit of together work and then we did a quick clean of the house before Nonna and Pops arrived.  They brought lunch and cake for one last celebration of Campbell's birthday.
  • Campbell was again pretty pleased to blow out her candles-one more time.  And now, other than my own, we have no more birthdays in our little family until April.  Woohoo!  The kids pretty much devoured the pizza leaving Nonna, Pops and me with only one piece and they did pretty much the same thing to the huge chocolate cupcake that Nonna brought.  
  • When Nonna and Pops left, we had a bit of time at home before loading up to take Keaton to her friends house to play.  Keaton was so excited to go to her playdate and insisted on wearing her Minnie baseball hat and purple skirt.  That was fine with me but as hard as I tried, I couldn't get her to give up bringing a bottle of water, stickers and a tiny stuffed elephant with her.  She had a blast and wasn't too happy to see Robby arrive to bring her home.
  • Once at home, we had supper and then the kids had a few minutes to play before we caught up on all of our December Bible reading, Santa pulling and ornament talking about.  Then everyone had a tiny snack before we put the crew to bed-earliest bedtime lately at 8.  Keaton is already sleeping in our room-last night at midnight, Reagan walked downstairs wide awake and said that Keaton had been coughing and neither one of them had been to sleep.  We didn't want that to happen again so as soon as we heard Keaton cough, we quickly brought her down to our room.
