I absolutely LOVE waking up to a house with CHILDREN in it!!
This morning it was MY house!!!
Everyone woke up happy!
Granddad had a hard time of it last night. He had a full blown asthma attack AND a severe case of heartburn. He didn't rest easy until 4:00 this morning. I was a little better off - it was around 3:00 for me. Louis Dean was asleep on the reclining sofa when we came in this morning. We all switched places with him and HE went back to bed in the guest room.
First order of business - morning COFFEE!!!
The girls actually just had one teaspoon of coffee to a partial coffee cup of milk.
We are learning to drink from BIGGER cups now!
I started breakfast while Kailey scoped out the pantry.
She told me, "I just LOOKING!!!"
While the bacon cooked in the microwave, the quads took turns helping me stir the oatmeal.
(It was already cooked and cooling - but THEY didn't know that!! They think they COOKED breakfast!)
The biscuits were a bit flatter than normal. Kailey put them on the baking sheet - and then POUNDED them before I could get them in the oven!!!
Split and buttered - they were good all the same!
As I was about to do the breakfast dishes - at 11:00 this morning - who should arrive on our doorstep???? Aunt Luann!!!!!
She came bearing all sorts of gifts and I was SO glad to see her!!!
LD was in bed and without Luann, I would have been solo today!
This is her arrival.......
and six hours later, her departure!
The quads LOVED her visit!!!
Thank you so much, Sister!!!!
You made all the difference in today!
I should have remembered that God always has a back up plan!!
The babies are still recovering from their illness but they played well today.
The Play Dough is always good for at least an hour!
Today we tried to get back on the schedule Amber uses and we were fairly successful!
By 8:00 everyone had been fed, bathed and were in bed waiting to hear me read another chapter in The Little House in the Big Woods.
I got everyone to bed, we said our prayers and then I shaded the light and read......
I will hold these days close to my heart forever!
Thank you, Sister, for being a part of these beautiful memories!
