Yesterday I asked Louis Dean about our Monday plans.
Amber had scheduled a play date with the D. Triplets! Since we are working on several projects here at home I wanted to make sure he would be good if I was gone for part of the day.
He said, "Those babies won't be BABIES long!!"
I sent Amber a text message and it was a GO!
I was at Amber's by 8:30 and we were playing with the triplets before 10:00 am!
It has been a long time since I held this little one!!!
They have grown!!!
We had a good day and I was happy Amber had invited me to tag along!
I've known Mary (the Trip mom) since she was a BABY herself!
Here's how you feed 7 babies!
Seven babies! TWO guys!!
Kailey made herself right at home!
Logan is a little shy when she visits a new place but she enjoyed herself!
Jacob was a good playmate!
LOVE the climbing pieces! Kailey has no fear and up she went!
QUEEN of the cube!!
And right underneath is LOGAN!!
Babies! Babies!! Babies!!! Babies!!!! Babies!!!!! Babies!!!!!! Babies!!!!!!!
Sweet! Seeing these babies play together!
It was worth all the work the moms went through to make this happen!
No favorites here but I must say this little one is a Mini - Mary!!!
Now shift to HOME!
Remember when I said Louis Dean was SO supportive of me being GONE today?
I know he was sincere. However, he saw an OPPORTUNITY!!!
When I returned from the zoo Sunday I THOUGHT this pond would be finished!
Instead he had torn down the brick wall and decided to start over with stronger mortar.
So today - instead of doing the brick work and call in DONE! - he decided to add a water hydrant!
Not looking good but this IS outside!!!
I was tired so I took a nap and decided to investigate the interior later!
When I woke up and surveyed the damage -
it took me 2 1/2 hours of damage control to get the house back together!
Shift to the INSIDE!!!
The kitchen showed signs of cooking. I should say FRYING!!!
I cleaned that up and then noticed the rug in front of the sink was wet.
LD admitted he had overflowed the sink! We have BOTH done that from time to time!
All along the counter you see above was sitting IN water!!
Now I won't go into detail about the apricot preserves that were dropped on the floor!
That took awhile to clean up!!
Not to mention that the A/C was OFF when I got home with the attic fan ON!
The temps were in the 90's inside the house!
Well, all is clean and cool tonight as I write.
We have been glued to the TV this evening following the coverage of the damage in Oklahoma.
We are praying for the ones affected by these tornadoes.
My friend, Louise, lives in Madill, OK.
She is the mom of our triplet mom and our friendship spans 35 years and more.
So - in light of what matters in eternity - it is a small thing to come home to 'Damage Control!'
