Runs for Cookies: (Belated) Friday Night time Pictures
The previous couple of days have been so loopy! I most likely will not get this finished in time to submit by 10:00 like I often do, nevertheless it’s been a enjoyable couple of days. Jeanie and Shawn determined to take a last-minute journey out right here (from Illinois) and I have never seen them in a while–it was enjoyable to get along with them.
Yesterday, my dad and mom, Jeanie, Shawn, Nathan, Jerry, Noah, Eli, and I went to Brian and Becky’s home for dinner. It is turn out to be uncommon to see all three of my siblings on the identical time, so I used to be trying ahead to it. Once we bought there, I let Riley pick a attraction for her necklace.
[Earlier this year, I went to a garage sale and found a bag with a ton of charms. It was only $1, and its had Riley’s name written all over it. I gave her one of the chains and told her that every time I see her, I’ll let her pick out a charm.]
I requested if I might take her image with the attraction necklace, and that is how she posed–hahaha! (Clearly, she clearly had been taking part in together with her make-up package.)
She had already finished Jeanie’s make-up (Jeanie made positive to let me know that her face seemed so fairly as a result of Riley utilized the make-up!) and she or he needed to do my make-up, too. In fact she might.
Apparently, she wasn’t as cautious making use of my lipstick as she was with Jeanie’s. As for the remainder of my face, Jerry stated it simply seemed like I bought stung by a bee, haha.
Riley additionally requested Jerry and Nathan if she might do their make-up as properly. Nothing says “I am sport” like permitting your four-year previous niece to place make-up in your face! (And paint your nails.)

Naturally, my mother had the concept for a household picture solely AFTER we had our make-up finished! (Brian took the picture along with his digital camera, so I haven’t got it.)
Noah and Eli have been hanging out fairly a bit lately, and I really like that. They do not have a lot (if something) in frequent, so I prefer it once I see them speaking and laughing collectively. I requested if I might take their image; I really like my boys <3
Noah at all times surprises me with how good he’s with youngsters. He says he would not need youngsters, however he likes Luke and Riley as a result of “they speak like adults”. Brian and Becky by no means used “child speak” with them, in order that they actually do have conversations like little adults! That they had a lot enjoyable chasing Noah all around the home.
I walked into the lounge to speak to Jeanie and I did a double-take once I noticed what seemed to be the decrease half of a physique mendacity there. I burst out laughing as a result of, properly, who expects to see that? Jeanie is an occupational therapist and she or he had this amputee torso in her automobile as a result of she teaches individuals wrap their residual limbs after surgical procedure. Riley needs to be “a nurse like her mother”, so Jeanie thought it may be enjoyable for Riley to discover ways to wrap, too. (Jeanie stated she shops the bandages within the underwear–she wasn’t attempting to stuff them, haha)
Earlier than leaving, Riley had yet another makeover to do–on Jeanie’s hair.
Jeanie and I made plans to run collectively this morning, nevertheless it was SO WINDY that it woke me up–I might hear branches hitting the edges and roof of the home, after which it appeared like a freight prepare was exterior. So, we did not find yourself working.
I went over to my dad and mom home to see them once more at this time (they’re leaving tomorrow morning). I used to be keen to speak to Shawn and listen to about his rehab expertise (Jeanie really did a visitor submit about what it is like while you’re husband is in rehab–you can discover that on this submit). We sat down to speak, and the subsequent factor I knew, it was three hours later and everybody was going to mattress! So I did not get likelihood to meet up with Jeanie. Nonetheless, she talked about that we must always exit and go to them soon–I have been eager to go for months, however issues have been loopy right here for some time. I feel we will attempt to go later this month.
I solely have a number of different images from this previous week and they’re completely misplaced right here, so I am going to simply save them for Friday. Have a terrific weekend! xo
