WOW! What a night, but fun! Gannon and Ellie were spending the night while their parents had a night out and then Gan wanted Abbey to come over to go fishing with him. (Love the picture of both of them fishing.) Well, when it was time for Abbey to go home, he wanted her to spend the night too. I felt like I spent the night in musical beds. It started out with me and both girls in our bed and Dick and Gan in another. I went from our bed to laying down with Gan, then Ellie came and crawled in, then I moved her back back to our bed, there wasn't enough room so I went to the couch. At about 3 or 4 a.m., Abbey came out and laid with me on the couch, then Ellie was nervous so I went back to my bed. But, I wouldn't trade any of it for the world - just glad that all seven of them weren't here at the same time!
Ellie LOVES Peter Pan, so she thought it was really cool to watch "Hook" on the portable DVD player.
Mom came down this morning for awhile and the kids all look like little ragamuffins!
When Ashley came to pick up Abbey, Ellie was thrilled to see Lucy. She loves babies and wanted to set with her in the rocking chair for a little while.
THEN - after all the kids were gone, we went to pick up my dad at the nursing home. He has had a TERRIBLE week, trying to get out the doors and come home. We took him for a long ride, he wanted to see the shop, and then we all went out to dinner. It did him so much good to get out of there for awhile, but it was heartbreaking to take him back. When we were leaving, he got all choked up and had tears in his eyes. I so wish I could wave a magic wand and make everything better again - I just want my old dad back. I am thankful that we have these times together though and he had so much fun.
So I think I'm going to put on my jammies and get a pillow and blankie and hit the couch for awhile. It's been a LONG day!
Hope you spent your Sunday with the ones you love!
Until next time...
