I'll be honest, I was worried about keeping them for that length of time. I was afraid they would just be miserable without Mommy and Daddy. They missed them a lot, but they handled it well. Only a few break downs. It was a joy to be around them in their everyday lives. They live about 3 hours away and when we visit back and forth it's usually for a short few days. I miss theses boys each and every day. They just change so much between visits. Jake read to us at night. He's in the second grade and can just read anything! He was definitely a big help. He patiently answered all my questions like - Where does your Mom keep her recipes? Do you know where this or that is? What do I do with this? The twins laughed at me because I couldn't keep their cups and lids straight - no Gramma not that lid - my water goes in that cup and so on. Finally, I gave up on matching cups and lids, left them on the counter and let them pick which one they wanted. Worked much better. I'll be blogging a few days about our adventures. But, first here's a few pictures of Patty's beautiful home.
Watching the sunrise from the front porch. Isn't it beautiful! If there had been more time I would have stayed on the front porch. But, these guys will keep you busy from daylight to dark. They have so much energy.
The next pictures are in her laundry room. It is such a bright and cheerful place, you really don't mind doing laundry. Well, you don't mind as much!!
Here's another bird in the laundry room. It's metal with these cute magnets to hold the pictures!
I love this little saying. I'm kind of that way. If my family is there, I feel like I'm home wherever I'm planted. I felt right at home at Patty's. The only thing I really missed was my bed! There's just nothing like your on bed!!
And, last I wanted to show you these beautiful stained glass front doors. Aren't they just wonderful! In the afternoon the sun shines through them and they are gorgeous.
Just a little highlight to show you how pretty her home is. I could post lots of pictures, antique fireplaces, converted gas lighting, antique doors and much more, but that would get to be very long, so I'll stop here.
Hope you're enjoying where you are today!!
