The Other Ones

Layne taking flight on Mona airlines.

The love bug. Mona and the girls worked hard on this one!

Mere getting some sweet love from Ralphie. See honey .... chihuahua's rock!

Mommy tracing Layne the dolphin fairy (don't ask).

A picture that Mona took of the pretty girl. Seriously, how stinking cute can one kid be?

Mona and Syd complete master- piece #1. A dinosaur with an orange bodysuit.

My angels hard at work.

Mona and Layne perfecting their art.

Time to make cookies!

Carole and the girls busy decorating cookies.

Are they done yet?

Uhmmmm...can't wait to eat some of that yummy dye.

Can I have some cookie with my icing? You know you want one!

Carole and the girls in the middle of a baking frenzy.

Carole and me chillin'

Sunday morning DS games. Don't they look so serious?

You know the other ones....the ones without kids. The people who have a house untouched by little hands. The place that you go when you are always a little edgy about what your kids are going to get into, what mess they will make, and trouble they will find. It is hard to totally exhale. But not at Carole and Mona's house. Carole and Mona are really close friends of ours (really more like family) who have 4 legged children but not 2 legged gooses like us. We decided to have a sleepover at their house on Valentine's day, kids and all. We had a blast! The girls got to decorate their driveway, bake cookies, and just have fun. It was so relaxing and great. The best part? No stress. The girls had free reign of the house without any worry about breaking things, etc. We are so lucky. Oh....and I got some great chihuahua lovin'

Nothing beats puppy love. Your cookies make me hungry and the pictures of the kids are priceless. I'm super glad you had a relaxing Valentines Day!

aaaah ! That makes more sense.
I must have pulled this up the 2nd you hit enter :)

Nice to have a comfortable place to hang out with the kids. Kid friendly places are hard to come by.

I am SO jealous of your wonderful time! Looks like you guys had a blast. If I ever finish this National Board crap, I want to go away too!! Maybe it'll be about time to return to The Cabin... Me? I had the flu for Valentine's. Niccce.

Your pictures are so stinkin' cute! Sounds like you had a ball. I love friends like that. "Family" without the (as you put it so well) two-legged kids around, but who aren't overwhelmed when you bring yours. They are few and far between.
