The girls stayed over.
We camped out in the living room in a teepee, eating popcorn and watching Kung Fu Panda.
We piled up a million pillows and blankets and settled everyone in for the night.
Then the littlest cousins broke the cardinal no goofing off after 10pm rule.
After separating them, Little Jo wound up with one tiny blanket and no pillows – because as you can see, I had been stingy with the provisions:
Itty Bit claimed the couch with George
And May-May lay sweetly sleeping on the recliner surrounded by spilled toys.
Wait… what is that noise?
No kidding -the littlest punkin was responsible for the seismological event.
Holy Adenoids Batman, that girl can snore!
We woke up lounged around in our pajamas – refusing to attend to frivolities like brushing our hair. But seriously, have you ever seen such glorious bedhead? The sheen of the myriad colors that grown women pay good money for, all lit by the morning sun.
A bit of silliness with special party straws. Because if Saturday mornings aren’t something to celebrate…?
We chowed down on the Mr. Daddy Breakfast Special of pancakes, bacon, and eggs; and enjoyed a bit of swordplay
Then Itty Bit realized that he ought to take advantage of the extra hands. Any guesses what game he convinced the girls to play?
Ahh yes, you spin me, then I spin you. His favorite game.
Did I ever tell you that my mom used to put me to sleep by holding me and spinning me in a chair?
Sorry, random I know.
Then came some true redneck fun… Mr. Daddy talking my sister into taking the Rhino for a spin:
You gotta love May-May’s rockstar pose. Ju is pretending she is not terrified to drive that thing.
And then it was time for them to go.
Itty Bit was not pleased.
But Mommy, I don’t want them to go!
(For the love of Pete, would someone please tell me what color his eyes are?)
Don’t worry honey, you can see them again soon.
(and whoever “Pete” is, would you clean the window too?)
Daddy making faces turned that pout around…
It was a good day.
And how was yours?
