I went over to Quadville to spend the night late Saturday.
Louis Dean has been so miserable with these terrible allergies that he encouraged me to go ahead and spend some extra time with Amber and the kids.
It's always an adventure waking up in Quadville!
This morning I was already up when I heard Trystan crying at the top of her shrill little voice!
Pretty soon everyone else was awake!!
The girls were all wide wake by this time so they went back downstairs with me for a few minutes
Everyone cheered up as you can see!
By now we were ALL in the guest room!!!
They were so adorable I snapped a LOT of pictures!!
Harrison was wearing the pajamas I made for him a few months ago from an old pair of Granddad's! The first picture is his 'Old Man Harrison' pose!!
The rest of them are because he is just so stinking cute!!
See what I mean?
And then there's Logan!!
She loves to write notes and even puts them in envelopes sometimes.
It started out as a letter or note and ended as a prayer which she gave her mother to keep.
We went to church and then out to Dickies BBQ for lunch!
Amber and I made a pretty good team.
She ordered and brought the food and I held court with the kids.
We do love those big yellow cups!!
From there Amber made a super quick run into Costco and I stayed in the car with the quads.
She just happened to park next to a field of wild sunflowers.
We now have a sweet bouquet of them on the table.
However, walking into a field of flowers and weeds was not the brightest thing I've done lately!
We all went home for naps and a relaxing afternoon. Right???
It doesn't always go as planned. It took twice as long for Amber and I to watch a movie as it should have taken what with all the times Amber had to go back upstairs for one child's drama or another's.
She is a trouper!!
Harrison was the only one to take a decent nap and I think Kailey got in a halfway decent one.
Not sure the others slept at all.
However, never one to be daunted, Amber gathered her squad up and we all piled in the car and headed to Target - every one's favorite store!
I love to hear the kids talking together. Children are totally fascinating and you just never know what they are going to say! Can you hear Harrison saying that MeeMaw is a twinkling star?
The kids were so happy and cheerful.
Do you wish you could laugh as easily as a child?
See that big old purse??
I had it hung on my arm and leaned over to get something and it swung around and could have knocked me unconscious if I had had just ONE MORE THING in it!!!
Shopping at Target on a Sunday evening with four 4 year olds and a tired MeeMaw?
Not so bad!!
In many ways it was a challenging day but we all still had a lot of fun!
Why does it work out that way?
SHE is why!!!
I am so proud of her and the way she rolls through the day dodging bullets and putting out fires!
She is pretty amazing!!!
