Jake wanted to read Austin the book - actually read to him. Austin just giggled along with the funny story. Then "Word World" came on and both boys were mesmerized in their pillow fort.
Then there was Ellie. She was so happy to just be walking around the ottoman...and around...and around. And then when I pulled out the camera, I kid you not - that girl started to light up even more - and I think she almost was posing at some points.
But poor Ellie - it was getting late and she was getting so tired. At one point while sitting on my lap I started to notice her whole body droop, then prop up very quickly. Then droop, bolt up. I told Jake to watch her and we realized she was falling asleep sitting up. We were thoroughly entertained watching her battle her sleepiness!
Right before Tracy got there Austin told me, "It's been nice that you invited me to your house." This kid is always welcome with manners like that!
