It was so nice to have Louis Dean spend the night with me in Quadville on Monday!
He had a rough night after starting out in the guest room together.
The allergy 'stuff' meeting the asthma 'stuff"is what is causing him such a problem!
Amber texted me around 3:00 this morning wanting to know if he was okay.
He was coughing and gagging and choking and hacking.
She was frustrated because she couldn't get downstairs to check on him and I was asleep and not answering the text! Louis Dean was being gracious and went in the living room where he would not disturb me ......not realizing Amber would be concerned!
While LD and Amber slept on.....Kailey was the first to wake up this morning and since I had slept a good 8 hours I went up up and brought her downstairs and tucked her into bed with me!
She dearly loves looking at 'pishers' on my iPad!!!'
We had a very nice day in Quadville!!
Louis Dean spent quality time with the quads and played his guitar in the guest room where they could hear him - and Kailey went in to sing with him for a few minutes!
Mid morning we had a Nail Salon event right there in the living room!!
Amber is so good at keeping things interesting with the quads!
She painted a total of 50 fingernails - which included her three daughters and herself and ME!!!
I was reluctant to get MY nails painted since I have ugly hands. I have been a life long nail biter and just recently stopped. BUT I relapsed and have bitten my right hand only - leaving my left hand in pretty decent condition. Amber was so gracious and gave me a very nice set of nails.
Isn't it amazing how daughters - my Amber and my Summer are proof in point - see only the best side of their mothers?? I am forever grateful!!!
Do you see that set of miniature manicured nails dipping into my lunch salad???
That would be Logan who is my Mini Me!!! She thinks what's mine is hers and she is so right!!!
Granddad just melts when Kailey tells him she loves him!!
Louis Dean went back home after lunch and the quads went down for their naps.
Amber and I dearly love watching a movie together and we try more times than we succeed!!!
We did it today!!! Both of us folded laundry and got Amber's closet all organized while watching this really cool movie! Granted - it was a chick flick but since we are a couple of chicks - we LOVED it!!!
Amber is recovering nicely after her foot surgery and her knee injections.
The whole purpose of us being in Quadville the last few days was to insure she didn't overdue it!
Telling a mother of four to stay off your feet for a few weeks is a hard pill to swallow!!
After naps Amber had printed out some papers for the quads to watercolor.
She always has some activity up her sleeve!!
She is teaching them to write their name in a multitude of clever ways!
Kailey is very much an individualist!!
She prefers pictures to letters!
Harrison has got it down!!!
I left Quadville this evening after Mike got home from work.
Louis Dean was glad to see me and, after I did a certain amount of Damage Control, we had a nice evening together! Apparently the storm on Saturday had tripped a breaker and and it wasn't until tonight that I could help him figure out which breaker it was!!
Now our coffee pots are all ready to come on in the morning!
And I am ready to go to bed!!!
I close with this picture from 3 years ago!
Here is Uncle Ben with Harrison and Kailey!
This seems like so long ago.....and yet like yesterday!!
Back in 2012 Louis Dean and I were living in our camper down in Katy and Summer and Benjamin came down to visit us right after Christmas.
What memories I have of this time!!!
I am so grateful for all four of my children!!!
I hope and pray I will ALWAYS be a part of their lives!!!
It seems fitting that today I helped Amber as she is is recovering from her foot surgery - which is a direct result of her quad pregnancy.
And here we all are are in 2012!
Families are all about history!
I do love that!!!
