Hanging with the littles....

I don't have too much for you guys today because last night we were doing something way cooler than blogging...we were spending time with our niece and nephew. It was my sister-in-laws birthday so we offered to watch the kiddos while they went to dinner. AND Friday is our niece's birthday, so we took her some goodies for an early opening and treated her and our nephew to some fro-yo. Her favorite gift was these little bug-eyed TY stuffed animals. I guess they're all the rage for the 8 year olds. She adores them. It really does melt your heart when they love what you do for them. She carried all of them down to the basement with her when we went to watch our movie. She had each of them give me an eskimo kiss before the movie started. Then one by one she tucked them in when it was time for bed. She was also sure to tell me how much fun she had and to thank me for babysitting her. It doesn't get much better than that. Except for when the big loud thunder scares your nephew and wakes him and he needs you to put him back to sleep. Then you watch your husband hop in bed with him and rub his back until he falls asleep again. You hear that deep heavy breathing and you know he's asleep again and that one of these days your husband will be the best dad. My cup runneth over.
One last thing. You know what is really refreshing? Watching children's movies. We watched Rise of the Guardians and let me tell you, it was incredible. It was nice to be reminded of what it's like to "believe." I really miss being a kid sometimes. They're so hopeful and happy. It truly is refreshing. I needed that time with our littles. They're wonderful kids and I love them.
I have one pic from last night. How adorable is she with her little animals? Loves.
