J and I were able to attend a great fireside this past Saturday, put on by Mark Paredes. It focused on the similarities between the Jewish and the LDS people. However, it didn't end till 8:30, which meant we wouldn't have been able to get Ernie before 9:00, and that means putting her to bed around 10:00 by the time we get out of Grandma and Grandpa's house, drive home, and go through the long scripture-diaper-brush teeth- jammies-fill water cup- sing 4 songs-3 blankets-1 pig-1 dog night time ritual! Oh, and prayers, hugs, kisses (each cheek, chin, nose, forehead) and FINALLY shaking each of our hands good night. SO, sweet Grandpa kept Ernie over night and took her to church in the morning. However, she gets SO excited around her grandparents (and possibly their never-ending supply of fruit snacks and movies and US puzzles) that naps and sleeping can take a far second place to anything else.
But sometimes a girl's just gotta sleep! Love ya, munchkin.
