Daddy did good!

Well, I had a whirlwind of a weekend.

My grandmother is sick, and I found a really cheap plane ticket Saturday night. So I took an unexpected last minute trip to Iowa this weekend. It was so good to see my grandma, even though it was in the hospital.

Phillip did SO good with the girls. They had a weekend of ill-fitting clothes and really messy hair, but they also had lots of fun.

Fun and some drama too.... They dropped me off at the airport Saturday evening and stopped at McDonald's for supper on the way home. As Phillip was carrying the food to the table, Emily puked all over the table. He got her all cleaned up just in time for Mara to spill her chocolate milk all in her lap. I think that would have been enough to send me over the edge, but my easy-going husband was not phased.

He did so good, and I'm so very thankful that my girls have such an awesome Daddy! It was good to be missed and is even better to be home. Now to tackle the mess of my house.....
