SIL and neice came for dinner today. Neice recently turned 15 so we had cake. DS’s were all so excited to see her. (Well, and auntie D. And LL, the dog. 🙂 ) Neice has turned into a really lovely teenager, surprisingly enough.
DS1 wanted to do a treasure hunt for her to find her cake. He took his notepad and wrote out all these elaborate clues. Neice did a great job of playing along and making it fun. In the end, she found her birthday cake in the lazy susan cupboard.
DS3 played Sequence with us (and won. With a little direction from Mommy). He was so tickled with himself. That boy just can’t wait to be big.
