Tuesday Part II

If you read the last post you know how the morning started out.  After waking up the girls were still very upset, crying and just being overall pains in the butts.  Of course it could be that mommy and daddy got very little sleep so we were less tolerant of things…

Late morning they both went down for a nap and so did mommy.  Daddy got some work done (which I was supposed to be away from, but I did bring my cell phone and email.)    Some of that work involved a phone call to some clients who live close by and their teen age daughter is going to come by a couple of times later this week and help babysit!  Too cool.  

When the girls woke up we went for a short ride down to the local resort town mall.  There was no one there and we got to go in a few shops and look around.  Rebekah really liked the ones that had toys in them and was having a good time.  Sarah and Rebekah both walked a little bit and rode together in the double stroller that our hosts have here at the house.  We went into a candy store and spent a gift certificate that was also given to us and tried to find the softest piece of chocolate that might melt in Rebekah’s mouth.  She didn’t like it at all which was confusing to us – a girl that doesn’t like chocolate?????

We came back to the house and girls played together, took naps, pooped regularly (which for Rebekah is spectacular!), and over all had a good time.  It was so close to being “normal” again and we are so greatful.

Daddy made spaghetti for dinner and both girls actually ate some of the noodles.  Rebekah sat at the table with us and ate.  Again, wonderful!!!!  

Finally the girls went to bed and mommy and daddy even got 20 minutes of peach and quite out in the hot tub.  It is a full moon outside and a crystal clear night.  The 28 degree temperature was just perfect as we sat in the 103 degree hot tub and looked up through the trees at the moon.

We don’t know what lies ahead of us tonight, tomorrow or … but right now things are pretty good.  Thank you for your prayers so far.  Please pray for a continuing good time.
