Special Visitors

One day, we opened our chain link in the morning to discover that we were to, "Expect a special visitor after naptime!" Somehow the boys managed to get to sleep, and when they woke up, Aunt Mer Mer and Major were here. They were so excited! She stayed with us for two days and then went to Gigi and Papack's for a few days. The next week, she and Uncle Roger came back to spend the night. Here are some pictures of our adventures.

She spends her life baking, but she still had fun helping the boys make sandies one afternoon. They loved it, and there wasn't too much flour on the floor when they finished! Good job Mer Mer!

She also brought a special craft to do with them another afternoon. They made cool snowglobes!

On Thursday we went to the pharmacy for lunch. This was a big treat for the boys, and Jon Jon really enjoyed his grilled cheese sandwich! I forgot the camera for that outing, but that night, our chain link said to enjoy a peppermint milkshake from Chick-fil-A! Yummy!
On Friday, we went to Monkey Joe's. It was so much fun and we hadn't been since September. We almost had the place to ourselves since the schools weren't out for Christmas yet. Jonathan went down the big slide with me, and then was very glad to get back in his stroller.

She headed back to Gigi and Papack's that afternoon, and then returned with Uncle Roger the next Tuesday. They spent the night with us, which the boys loved. There was much playing of the Wii, and general silliness. They treated us to Chick-fil-A at lunch that day, where Uncle Roger felt a little out of place. He noticed he was the lone male in a restaurant full of mommies and children. We all laughed at his observation and told him that CFA is a huge social event for families with wee ones! Here is the one photo we made with my camera of all five of them together.

More celebrating to come. . .
