The girls spent the night with Grandma and Grandpa at Uncle Scott and Aunt Jen's house Friday night.
My husband and I were blessed with date night. A celebratory birthday dinner out. All through dinner we talked about the girls. We watched the videos of them ice skating. We laughed about the funny little things they do and say.
A video text goodnight. We started to miss them.
Fast forward to Saturday. The day was all ours too. We played racquetball, had breakfast out, did a little browsing and shopping. We continued to talk about the girls. Another video text was sent with a "happy birthday" message.
We then cleaned the screened-in-porch to encourage spring to arrive. I enjoyed the clean porch for a half an hour before we headed to my brother's house for my family birthday dinner. We thought about the girls all day.
Fast forward to Saturday afternoon. We walked in the door to see two happy girls with hugs for us both. Oh, it was so good to see them. The missing them now gone.
We spent the evening talking, laughing, eating a delicious meal. We shared, smiled, celebrated with a triple chocolate cake with sprinkles.
It was a perfect evening with my family and my girls.
Fast forward to late Saturday night. We brushed teeth, said prayers, and tucked the girls into bed. All was quiet as I plopped down on the couch with my laptop in hand thinking about my slice. I opened up my laptop and started to type when I heard a little voice over the monitor.
"Mommy. Mommeeee. I have poopy."
"And I have two boogers."
I know one day I will miss this too ...
On a side note ... I traveled to Google to find this yesterday! What a fun little gift!
