Day 205 - Midnight Train to Georgia...

Actually, it is a minivan and they are heading to Texas...but the midnight part is not far off! This afternoon, Ganny and Papa Texarkana called to invite Hillary Ashton and Sophie Le to their house to spend the night. Of course, the girls were super, duper excited. And of course, Mama was super, duper sad :o( Haha! I just miss my girls soooo much when they are away. However, I am a good mama and I put my wants aside and told my girls they could go :o) Unfortunately, one of my girls continued exhibiting some bad behavior that I am afraid is quickly becoming habits so her punishment was to stay at home with Mama (and no ice cream after supper). I would never divulge which child that was :o)

Papa Texarkana and Ganny didn't get to our house until around 8:00 p.m. so Hillary Ashton thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and put on her pjs :o) That child would live in her pjs if that was an option! Here is Hillary Ashton (and Little Hillary Ashton - she named her American doll after herself) ready to go in their matching pjs...

Since I used up all of my laminating sheets this morning (haha!), I decided to get started on another project I have had on my to-do list for awhile...Felt Busy Books for the Girls. I plan on letting the girls play with their books in big church and while traveling in the car for our vacation. I let the girls play with the dress up dolls (who have no facial features at this point which really bugged the girls...haha) this afternoon and they loved putting together different outfits and accessories :o) I still have a long ways to go, but here is what I have so far...

Don't you feel blessed that our children have such great grandparents and that they love to go stay with them! BTW...accountant??? You should have been a teacher!

OOOOOOO....A Laminator....I don't have one! Maybe I should! :) Cute folder games! I need to make some for Caleigh to keep her little mind busy during the boys' lessons.
