drawing chalk murals on the driveway (those won't wash away for a long time), hiking in the desert, playing with the balls hijacked from the neighbor kids when they kicked them over the wall, and sledding sled-less on tummies down the dunes at White Sands.
Huntah Baby (as Annie calls him) wasn't able to fully participate, as his running legs are still in training, but I can tell he was entertained and possibly a little overwhelmed at all the action. He slept very soundly after they left. And he still is sleeping, at least during daylight hours.
I'm going to miss waking up to have at least one sister and at least one toddler downstairs eating breakfast and making me coffee, holding the sweet bundle while I shower more than once in a 24 hour period, and having company and lots of entertainment all day. It's pretty boring and quiet here now when the daddy is at work. We hope they come back really soon! And soon Hunter can come outside and play with Annie, like she kept asking. Sadly, we forgot to get a picture of all 6 of us!
We come bearing gifts... of crackers.
