An entire day FILLED with rain brought sooo many good things to
me my family.
First, let's start by saying the kids didn't even wake up this morning until 8am, and they were both still in their own beds (sleep training last week worked wonders).
Then, Loudoun woke us up with breakfast in bed (triscuit sandwiches with cheese and ham slices) and a beautiful drawing:
Next, the kids let us go back to sleep until 10am, while they played in their room. And nothing was destroyed! After a normal eggs breakfast for everyone, and a couple of hours of watching the rain outside, the rain broke and Avalon and I took a walk in the stroller. She passed out within 5 minutes (she stayed up until 11pm the night before with Grandma babysitting), we walked for an hour, and cruised home because it started to rain again.
When we got home, she woke up in the stroller, cruised over to me on the couch, climbed on my lap, and fell asleep for another 2 hours.
I got a nap too, while Rick watched tivo'ed UFC. When we woke up, Loudoun requested watching Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer, so we all vegged out and watched together.
After the movie, Loudoun, Daddy and I played Go Fish, and then the boys vegged out.
See a theme for today?? Now we just had bath time, Dad is cooking dinner, the kids and I are vegging out in the living room, and I am pretty darn content. After this last week of planning for my company Christmas party, I soooo needed a day of relaxing. Thank you, rain. You couldn't have come at a better time.
