First Double Sleepover

This past weekend, the kids went on their first double-sleepover at B's house. My mom has kept both kids while I've gone out of town before but this is the first time I've been ALL by myself without them. (Jonathan was away on a guys' weekend.)

I LOVE the look Lillies is giving Ace! It is just a matter of TIME before she gives him the "what for." She is jabbering up a storm and I swear yesterday she said "quit it Ace."

It is VERY hard for me to let BOTH of my kids out of my arms. I am SUCH a worrier and I lay in bed thinking up elaborate plans of how to get us out of situations if someone carjacks us or burgles the house, or if there is a fire or if our car gets submerged in water...and those are the realistic scenarios!!! It's paralyzing sometimes and only the grace of God digs me out of my imagination. So letting both my kids out of armslength just makes my worries run wild.

They had such a great time. They always come home from B's smelling like clean, Johnson's nighttime lotion and happiness.

I, on the other hand, spent a night alone with Hula, working on the kids yearbooks. If I couldn't be with them, I at least wanted to be going through pictures of them. =) Is it possible to have empty nest just in a night? Oh the prayers I need to pray!!!!!
