I "let" JD go out of town for a men's retreat; my job at home wasn't too tough since Aunt Deb came and helped me the whole time. Good old Aunt Deb has filled in a gap that I have ignored for years - board games! She taught the kids how to play Yahtzee and Sorry. It can be a bit challenging with little "helpers."
I wish I had thought to have someone video the excitement when I got out Selah and Bella's new church outfits. They squealed, clapped and jumped up and down. They are always super eager to get dressed and like to admire themselves in the mirror.
Check out the girl's heights. Tori is almost 8, Julia is 6.5, Selah is supposedly 5 or 5.5 and Bella is 2.5. I'm anxious to get a bone scan done on Selah to determine her age range.
When the camera comes out, Bella starts posing. Selah didn't want to be left out, so she gave it a go also.
You got to wonder where they learned this!
We made our first trip to a store with the girls - Costco after church. They did great, but wouldn't touch the pizza.
When the 12 of us rolled up to the food court, there was only one table. Two different people offered us parts of their tables, which was so nice. Only one little girl asked if we were just one family.
You really can't miss us rolling through the store!
The good news is that we wore them out and the ride home was quieter than usual.
While the shopping went well, I'm not taking all of them without JD for a while!
