Reece and Aubrey were here last night, until around 2:30 this afternoon. I took them with me to Mom's, but we didn't stay long. I told them we would have lunch at my house, then they could play outside for awhile before they went home.
It's beautiful today, and they enjoyed playing outside. The sunshine feels so warm and good. They were going to play in their backyard with Camryn when I took them home. She was looking pretty sleepy when we got there, but her mommy was getting her dressed for outdoors when I left.
We made a valentine for their mommy this morning. They each made a handprint using red fingerpaint, but the prints were crisscrossed, Aubrey's on top of Reece's, so they made a heart shape. They thought it was great fun for me to put the paint on their hands.
They brought out some of Reece's old cars last night, that play music, dance, go back and forth, etc. I put new batteries in them, and they played and played with them. Then they found a bucket of miscellaneous toys in one of the spare bedrooms-- play food that probably belongs to Lily, a few fast food toys, that kind of thing. You would have thought they had found a whole stash of new toys, they were so excited. They played with them last night, and then again today when we went outside.
When I was driving them home, Reece said to me, "Gramma, I just love you. Thank you for spending the night." He means "thank you for letting me spend the night," and he says it every time he stays with us. Then he said, "I'm gonna miss you!" He says such sweet things to me, it melts my heart.
So far it's been a great weekend!
