  • Last night I had sent the girls upstairs to find their church clothes and Reagan met me on the stairs wearing one of Campbell's dresses (which perfectly fit her but she has said that she doesn't like and let her sister have).  She asked if it was too short and I told her that it was perfectly cute.  Wow, her wearing a dress-I couldn't believe it.  But this morning when it was time to get ready, I looked around and that dress that she had laid out was no longer on the floor of my room nor was it on Reagan.  She instead had her church jeans and a cute top which was fine but just not the dress that I had been hoping for.
  • Church was uneventful this morning and soon we were on our way to Nonna's house for lunch-or should I have said breakfast.  Nonna and Pops had a huge breakfast-pancakes, waffles, strawberries, fruit, bacon, sausage and eggs.  This was a hit and the kids gobbled it up and even went back for seconds.
  • This afternoon Robby and I laid down for our weekly hour nap and even though last week's nap was perfect, today's nap was not perfect at all.  The kids' movie was loud, Whitman messed his pants, Keaton had a zillion questions about snack, Reagan wanted to go outside, Graham sat on Campbell, Whitman found a Hulk mask and proceeded to put it on and growl/scream at us until we finally gave up and got up. 
  • Even though my nap didn't go as expected, tonight still turned out to be fun.  This was the Upward soccer celebration and the kids were very excited.  The entertainer was the same one as last year (and possibly the year before).  He was entertaining-though Keaton did lean over to Robby half way through and say "he just keeps doing the same thing over and over" which was very true.  Robby and I stayed happy as long as we didn't have to go up on the stage and thankfully we were not called on.
  • Afterwards, the kids were given their soccer balls and everyone had a snow cone.  When they had finished their snow cones, we took our 6 blue and red lipped kiddos to go and eat at Dickeys.  Sundays are kids eat free so how could we pass that up? 
  • As Reagan was eating her ice cream tonight, she looked around and said, "Snow cones and ice cream all in one night, where are my parents?"  It was a pretty good night for my crew!
