Since I haven't really blogged much about what we've been doing the last few months, I thought I'd try to catch up in the next few days. (Probably weeks, really...) Anyway, with Sarah and Markus here (and of COURSE my niece and nephew, Levi and Emma) we've been basically running from one thing to the next - desperately trying to cram in 3+ years of time/conversations/things to do into this short 6 month period. And we are doing a FABULOUS job of it, if I do say so myself!
One of the super fun things we did just after they'd arrived was a "Pajama Run." We put the kids to bed at our own homes, let them JUST start to get relaxed and then SURPRISE, woke them up with Grampy Tim and Grandma Esther - Oh also Auntie Joanna and Lydia too! - and and then took them all to get ice cream at McDonalds in their pajamas. They were so surprised to see us all rushing in their bedrooms - shouting "Pajama Run!!" and carrying them out the door. :) Micah and Ella had a friend spending the night - Emily - and she got to join us in the fun. Fortunately, Emily totally knows how crazy her Auntie Elisabeth is and is good with it!
Here's some pictures from our pajama run....definately something we'll do again, after they've forgotten all about it and it's a surprise again!
