Thankfully, I was at Robin's when all this activity began...so, I could get to them before anyone else. Maddux is fine. They were able to put him back together again just like Humpty Dumpty with a little glue and a lollipop!
But while they were gone, I got to play Barbies again for the first time in YEARS! The last time I played was with my girls.
Isn't she precious?!
Then this past Saturday we had a last minute overnight guest when Meagan and Derrick decided to take us up on the offer to keep Davin so that they could go out for Meagan's birthday (which was Friday).
As the evening wore on and the energy levels began to plummet, I looked over to find Davin and Pappaw snuggled up in the Lazy Boy watching The Zookeeper!
Jim does looking dashing in zebra, does he not? The next morning, as I was making pancakes, I overheard the following conversation:
Davin: "Pappaw, why do you always sit in this chair?"
Jim: "Because it is my chair. It's my Lazy Boy."
Davin: "I need a Lazy Boy too!"
Boys! They do start early with that whole recliner thing, don't they?
Even though neither event was planned in advance, I was thankful for the one on one time with each of them. And it fits right in with my desire to do that more often in 2012. Next up? Maddux and I are going to see Elmo next Sunday for his birthday -- just the two of us!
