Little Mommy

DeLaynie's favorite game right now is "slumber party." This game, which I believe she made up on her own, involves dragging as many blankets, pillows, and stuffed friends into a very public place and arranging them into a bed-like configuration. After they're all arranged, she then tucks them in, gives them kisses, conveys her intense and un-dying love, and snuggles up next to them. Here are a few pictures from Sunday's game:

This was just the first of many games. It has grown to three dolls and a penguin in membership. She wants to play it all the time, but she was particularly fond of playing during church time.
FYI- We are now in the D.C. area, visiting Edwin's brother. I'm so happy to get to see my nieces and Edwin's wonderful brother and fantastic sister-in-law. Although it was intensely painful to leave so many close friends this morning as we departed from the training center, we know that God's plan is good. We look forward to seeing how God uses us for the expansion of His Kingdom.

I can't wait for you to play "slumber party" at Gigi and Big D's house!!! I bet Big D will give you a ride also!! Love you! and we can't wait to see Ella running around either!!! We went to see your "new" house today and it has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a fenced in back yard if we saw the right house!

Lola likes to play that game too! I hope we get down there soon. While y'all are still there. We'd love to see y'all.

PS DeLaynie's hair looks really cute!
