What the girls did while Mom and Dad were in St Lucia

The girls had so much fun while we were soaking up the sun. They laughed and played harder than they do on a normal week. Fortunately, Ivy avoided a fever episode until after we got home. Here are some pictures of their activities while we were gone.

Jade and the 'puter and My little cows.

Ivy sleeping and Jade playing Ratatoulli.

Crashed for the night and showing off her handmade Valentine for Mom.

Triumphantly climbing up the slide and making a sign to welcome home Mom and Dad. Jade did all of the lettering all by herself. She also painted herself without any help!

It's so good to be home, and we are really lucky that Grandma and Grandpa were able and willing to watch the girls. We are really lucky to have such a great family.

There was only one thing that went wrong while we were gone. Grandma E suffered a heart attack on Tuesday. Fortunately, she was able to get to the hospital on time and she had an angiogram that cleared it all up. She's still really tired and suffering from a couple of other ailments. She is such a strong woman who keeps on winning the battles.
