Full House

We invited Catch’s youngest cousin to come stay with us for a couple of days, and last night, our little home was transformed into something fit for a sleepover.

We baked Rolo a birthday cake—he turned 7 yesterday.


And since we couldn’t let Rolo be the only one with the treats, we made some cake batter rice krispie treats for ourselves.


We watched movies, ate (turkey) pepperoni pizza and dyed Easter eggs.  It was a good night.

As I stood at the kitchen sink washing dishes, and Catch emptied the dye from plastic cups and wiped dye from the plastic table cloth, our guest busied herself with singing in the living room.  Her voice made me smile.  It’s nice to have a kid in the house.  Even if it’s only for a few days.
