Making the list...
Do you remember the girls, E and L, who came to my house for daycare last fall? They came to spend the day with us today. Can you believe how big they are now? It took 2.6 seconds for me to tap back into their giggles, warmth and girly fun. How I have missed them.
Miss E just turned 4, and yes, that is lip gloss on her lips. While her mom was on the phone this morning, she applied the lip gloss a bit "liberally" to most of her face. I cracked up remembering all of those busy days when a turned back resulted in all kinds of shenanigans with little ones.
Miss L, who was just 8 month old when she first came, is now a full fledged toddler, and part time ham.
She walked right in and plunked herself down on my lap to get her coat and boots off. But lickety-split she was off and running when she saw the toys beckoning to her from the other room.
I was told my pb and j sandwiches are the best she has ever had, shhh, don't tell her they are from Smuckers and come in a box...

My favorite part is seeing what an amazing big brother my baby boy would be. Gets me every time.
But some things haven't changed at all. With all the dancing, riding on Colton's back, running and playing, she was tuckered out by 12:00.
All too quickly it was time for them to go. They were here just long enough to fill that girl sized space in my heart. As they got ready to leave, their mom shared with me that I made the list of things E was grateful for... it started with Grandpa's and Grandma's and ended with me. I made the list!
And this is where my gratitude lies this Thanksgiving. These little things... like two little girls. A whirlwind day filled with girly goodness. And making her list.
Whose on your list this Thanksgiving?
