the first evening without Annie :)
We arrived in CA, yesterday evening. The boys were excited to see us. And everyone seems to be fine with having to put up with Baba and Papa- they just don't know exactly how long Momma will be gone :)
This morning while I was drying my hair, Owen came to see what I was doing.
The conversation went something like this:
Owen, "What are you doing?"
Me, "I am drying my hair."
Owen, "Did you bring that hair dryer with you?"
Owen, "Does Papa use that hair dryer?"
Owen, "Did he take off his hair?" :)
This morning I cleaned off the back yard dirt on Weston. Then later, we cleaned off chocolate frosting on Weston. ( Today is his first birthday- so he had birthday cake) Then later, I cleaned off beach sand on Weston. Then later, I cleaned off lasagna on Weston. Finally, I cleaned off ice cream cone on Weston and put him to bed. He never made a peep. Of course it was two hours past his bedtime.(we only lost one shoe today- I will need to get him another pair :)
Annie's flight left at 5:45 today. She was brave enough (or crazy enough) ...
to leave us here alone with the boys :)
This morning at breakfast, Nathan asked, "What are we going to do after Momma leaves?" Ron said, "PARRRTY !". I said something more realistic, like "Try to figure out dinner and sort out shirts, pants, socks, and underwear from the clean clothes pile."
At least Annie left us with a GPS in the van- his name is Nathan. (How does it feel to have a 7 year old telling you where to go ? :)
