Then, on Monday, the Council clan came over for some of Fred's BBQ... Nan is a vegetarian, so we made sure to have alternative stuff. But Landon liked the food.
As always, James was entertaining (is that what we should call it??) And it was fun to see him and Andy having a 'spar' with words (we wouldn't call it cut-downs, would we?)
Example: Tuesday morning, Jael walks into my bedroom a little disoriented and starts to go into our bathroom (where Fred was just getting ready) I hopped out of bed and re-directed her to where her mommy was...
about 15 min. later, Mady & Jael show up again in my bathroom. (it's ok, everyone was fully dressed by now). I am finishing up with my hair and the girls have a million and one things to 'share' with me. Now, I usually don't say a word to Fred until after my coffee and we are on our way out the door for work, but here at 6:45am, I have 2 delightful girls asking me all kinds of questions.
Then, when Fred & I got home from work on Monday, we found a 'sippy' cup in our bedroom floor. We got a chuckle at the fact we couldn't remember the last time that occured to us!
What a hoot!
Tuesday evening, Landon decided to warm up to me. Either that, or he loves to get his picture taken. He kept posing and saying "cheese!"
It was great to meet Nan. She was very nice. She got to sleep in our 'office' room, where Freddy's 60in TV is, so I don't think she had it too bad. :)
It was so great to see them again! I miss them, but I am grateful that we have stayed in touch. Thank goodness for blogs and text messaging!!
