Mallie and Dallie flew in for a week to celebrate Presley's birthday a little early and just spend some time with us. We had a great week with them!
David loves shoes, I just bought him new ones today and he refused to take them off! Cameron always asks him as a joke where are his shoes cause he will stop whatever he's doing to bend over and look at them. He loves putting on all our shoes, especially slippers.
We then got to play outside while the weather was nice.
Presley and Dallie enjoyed their ice cream treats together at night.
Dallie probably played this airplane game with David for 30 minutes one day.
David loves cars and planes.
And Dallie got to play dress up a few times... he's a good sport! Presley still just adores him. They are best friends, as she would say. He puts her to bed every night, tells her stories, brushes her teeth, the works! They are two peas in a pod! They watched a few movies together with their popcorn bucket and after naptime every day, she would request Dallie come to her room. I heard them up there as she was going through each of her 100 Care Bears and telling Dallie all of their names and which were her favorites. He is so patient and gives her so much attention, it makes me happy to see these two reunited!
Then, she got her big gift... a Barbie Jeep! Here she is walking out in the garage after Dada and Dallie had put it together.
Of course, David wanted to go for a spin!
We caught the meerkats sunbathing and she thought it was hilarious they slept like Phil.
We went through Presley's closet to pull out the clothes she's outgrown and unload some of our awesome new clothes from Olivia. Presley started picking up Olivia's clothes and just putting them on. Here's what she ended up with... I did have to tell her this is a Christmas skirt and she is now counting down till Christmas to wear it again. Silly girl!
My parents were supposed to leave Tuesday morning, but extended their tickets when Cameron's change of command got scheduled that afternoon. I am so grateful they were there, not only to help with the kids, but it was nice for them to get to be a part of one of our many Army ceremonies and get to meet some people from our new unit. I don't know how we could have managed without them, since we also hosted a reception afterward. It was so nice to have all the extra hands with the kids. We had a really great visit and can't wait to see them again. We had a bit of a tear-filled trip to the airport, but Presley knows they will be back to visit soon. David really bonded with Dallie this trip and said Dal the whole trip home. I think he really missed his buddy playing with him while we were in the car. This is just the beginning of the company we have coming... can't wait for our next visitors, Amelia and Daniel, then G and Grandmom!
And, I will leave you with this pic of my little man... he cracks us up and loves being the clown!
