And I forgot to post this this morning.........
Had a good day - after sleeping in and trying to get caught up on things, and doing 5 loads of laundry, Lisa called and she and the kids were heading out to lunch if we wanted to join them. Which, of course, we certainly did want to do! We met up at Chli's, had a great lunch, and then Bill went off on his errands. I went with Lisa to the dollar store for some big shopping. Why are dollar stores so fun? We spent $15 and had a cart full of stuff!
Then we came over to the house so Brooks could nap and Ashby play. While all that was happening, Lisa went out to run a few errands by herself. Ashby was into playing by herself for the most part and had a great time. Brooks slept until 5:00 and was happily playing when Lisa got back. We threw together some spaghetti for dinner and then Lisa and Brooks left. Ashby was spending the night!
We had a great evening with her. We spent a long time upstairs in the craft room, mostly playing with stamps. Later, she got ready for bed, had a snack, and watched a video. After a little more playing, she brushed her teeth, we read a couple of books, and she went right to sleep.
We had a great time. It has been a while since she spent the night with us and is getting big enough that we need to do it more often. And, she is so into making crafts that I really need to get me some kid craft stuff together.
