Texas--With Nana's Girls

If you haven't noticed I have been missing in action....

Saturday the girls and I flew out to Texas to take care of Nana's girls while Mom and Dad (Kristy and Chris) are at work for 6 weeks! This Nana is getting used to the routine of chasing after two little ones--a two year-old and a 9 month old now mobile little girls. Becca is earning credit for her child care class and is a pro at this toddler watching game. Detamara had no idea what to do and was afraid of the little ones. She has moved to retreiving a moving toddler and has even managed to handle a bottle!

Detamara is doing a great job dog sitting for Jesse and Leto and Becca's Morgan. She only got lost once walking the dogs and managed to make it back home all on her own.

Chris is taking up the role of playing Culinary Arts Teacher with Becca for her credit. Detamara joined in and they made Sweet Potatoes with rosemary and olive oil on the grill, with both Teriyaki and Barbeque Boneless Chicken on the Grill, with Steamed Fresh Brussell Sprouts brushed with Blue Cheese and an amazing Fresh Blackberry-Strawberry Fruit Cup with Whipped Cream Topping sprinkled with Brown Sugar. Chris had the girls cooking and totally engrossed with his lessons and Dinner was amazing!

Today I had the greatest birthday as I listened to little Kasja singing "Haapy Haappy Nana, Haappy Haappy Nana" several times today. This is a gift of a lifetime being able to spend this much time with Nana's girls.
