Other than a family lunch at Waffle House, everyone stayed close to home today - no frantic errands, no Kyle work time. I did have to do the usual weekly HyVee trip, and I picked up a salad for our dinner at Dean & Deluca, but otherwise I did some laundry, made a grocery list, and all sorts of dull household tasks.
Our exciting part of the day came when Papa joined us for dinner, which got all three kids in uber-hyper mode. Everyone was showing off and trying to get his attention - the twins as much as Claire. Papa did a good job of juggling the kids and making each of them feel loved. Always a cute sight to behold.
Posting a couple photos ... one of Molly wearing Kyle's boots, and one of the (mostly naked) twins "reading" books together on the couch, which is the new nightly routine after dinner. Usually one of them decides the other one's book is more interesting, and glances longingly at that book (in this photo, it's Lily coveting Molly's book). We've only had a few instances of outright book snatching and I hope it stays that way.
