First of all, I'm sitting here listening to my husband play guitar (which I love), while my baby girl sits and 'sings' along. The perfect ending to a perfect day.
We had a rather large group of friends and family at our house today for a cookout and to watch the airshow. 24 burgers, 23 hot dogs, a double batch of homemade baked beans, a whole crock pot of rotel dip, 2 lbs of chocolate covered strawberries later, I'd deem the day a success. That wasn't all the food- just the stuff I prepared. There was lots of cornhole and ladder ball playing, cabin playing by the kiddos, squirtguns, ping pong and airplanes. And eating. And nursing. Lots of nursing babies. And a newborn and two babies in the making! I think everyone enjoyed, and I just love having a house full. Not too mention that it was full of people that I love. Family, friends, old and new, even some strangers! I loved it though... I love opening our home, seeing people in every room. Absolutely love it.
My brother and his wife were in for the weekend too- they just moved from PA to Cleveland, and went from 7 hrs away to 4.5!
It was just a really awesome day.
My life seems so full... bursting at the seams... of love and goodness and fun and friends and fellowship. I am so blessed. So so blessed. I love days like this.
And now, just sitting here listening... Cate was crying until Jordan started playing his guitar. Right away she quieted down, just listening and watching her Daddy. But when he sings- she gets really excited, kicks her feet, laughs, and coos along. I'm pretty sure she just wrapped him around that little tiny pinky finger of hers. As if she wasn't already. But now... he's a goner for sure.
Anyway, that's all for now. Just documenting, really. :)
