Lisa took advantage of a chance to do an overnight visit her friend who lives in Augusta. Daddy kept Brooks, but to make things easier on everyone, Ashby is spending the night with Grandma and Grandpa. There were no complaints on our end!
She dropped Ashby off around 11 or so. She was so excited! At lunchtime, she wanted mac and cheese, which we fixed together. She entertained herself all afternoon with all sorts of things. She had brought her shopping cart, which happened to be in the trunk after their last trip to the grocery store. The large pantry was the perfect place for doing her shopping and her cart is full of boxes and plastic jars of things. She also played with the matchbox cars, the tea set, the magic set, books, and I don't know what all. I was able to do some things while she was entertaining herself.
When Bill got home, he took her with him to go clean up the church. She played in the nursery the whole time and had so much fun. Then it was time to start winding down towards bedtime. She had her bedtime snack - a bowl of cereal, some yogurt and some fruit. Then she served hot cocoa to grandpa using her tea set, which took quite a long time. Finally we got jammies on and teeth brushed and she picked out two books to read. When I finally got her into bed, she wanted me to lie down with her. I think it took all of two minutes for her to be fast asleep!
There is nothing like spending the day with Ashby to make any day a sunny day!
