Day 61 — Had a great day with Hailey and Ethan. First, took them to their gymnastics class — Ethan is cute and we were amazed at Hailey’s growing ability and confidence. I hope she sticks with it. Afterwards, it was McDonald’s for lunch (not our pick, believe me) then swimming. Back home, we made pizza for supper and Hailey invited her little friend from across the street to join us. She stayed for a sleepover. Just let me say — I was not prepared for two eight year old girls and the drama! But, we had fun, and that’s what’s important.
Day 60 — A nice round sounding number. Hailey and Ethan come for a weekend sleepover tonight. Their brother, Timmy, has his first away tournament in Cold Lake. Excitement for everyone!
Day 54 — The kiddos came for a sleepover last night. Yay! we had fajita’s for supper — Ethan blowing dramatically, hot, hot, hot (they really weren’t) — was priceless. Hailey and I made Whoopie Pies — she kept calling them ‘whoopie cushions’ — in her Easy Bake oven. Red Velvet and Devil’s Food. Real baking isn’t nearly as time consuming as that was, but we had fun and those little mini-cakes were delicious! Oh, and Tim and I were bad grandparents — we let Timmy and Hailey stay up until 11 o’clock watching a movie with us. Shh. Don’t tell their parents.
Day 33 — Saturday. It snowed, but not too much. Ran a few errands in town then headed home to get supper ready for my grandsons Timothy and Ethan. They were coming for a sleepover. We had fun playing UNO and watched The Lorax. I don’t think Dr. Seuss would have approved of this adaptation of his book.
