After a rather normal day, Lisa brought the kids over late in the afternoon. David is out of town on a camping/fishing trip with some friends and Lisa has to present a class at the stake leadership training in the morning, so she needed a place to put the kids. We decided to have them just spend the night.
What a fun evening with them here! They wanted mac-and-cheese for dinner, as well as plenty of other snacks. They played with the Barbies and with the trucks and dinosaurs. Oh, and of course, Brooks played with the train. They had a ball playing hide-and-seek with Grandpa. Then they watched some classic Disney cartoons on Grandpa's tablet. The three of them were laughing like crazy - and I was laughing at them.
We finally got ready for bed. The plan was for the two of them to sleep in the guest bed together. Brooks has graduated from the crib. They could hardly wait to get into bed together, but then they just giggled like crazy. After a few minutes, they got up, ate more snack, and then tried again. This time Brooks went into bed alone and was asleep almost as soon as had walked out of the room. Ashby snuggled in bed with me and was asleep be the time I got to the second verse in my scripture reading. I think Ashby will just sleep in our bed all night with us.
I then got up, did the things that needed to be done before bed, had a snack, and then climbed back in with my book. And with Ashby cuddling up close, too. Best thing ever!
