Pictures of the madness are here
. At least the madness captured on my camera LOL. The girls spent most of the day hyper, but overall, a good day. Weather was nice enough for them to play outside for awhile in the afternoon (and Papa & Mama were nice enough to take turns being out there with them, so they could be outside). As you can see from the last few pictures, the men were an energetic bunch LOL.
Lexie proved to be very much her father's daughter by immediately figuring out that Jr Monopoly is all about collecting money, Daddy was so proud . . . Ashlyn was thrilled to find that her new coat has a zipper (starting a zipper is a recently acquired skill), and that Grandmom got her purple crocs (Mommy's too cheap for "real" crocs, and the fake ones we got for last summer didn't come in purple, so Ashlyn had to make do with blue).
When I was throwing crumpled tissue paper at my brother for a smart remark he made, Lexie told me not to throw paper, when I said "but he was mean to me!" she looked at me & said "Mommy, don't you remember the Golden Rule!" ROFL.
And I think today I'm going to scrap my initial ambitious ideas of starting to declutter in our bedroom, and just veg with the girls for the day :)
