Living With Grandma and Grandpa

For the past few weeks we have been living with my parents while we wait for our new house to be finished so we can close. It has taken a lot longer than we anticipated because of some major mistakes by the builder and his subcontractors (installing the wrong granite, not knowing that the front yard landscaping had to be put in before a certificate of occupancy could be issued, etc). So, needless to say when we do finally move in, we will be ready!

 However, we have been so blessed to be able to stay with my parents and have been having a great time.  Chloe and Abby love playing with their grandparents. Most mornings instead of coming and snuggling with us in bed, they go straight to Grandma and Grandpa. The kids hardly ask me to do anything for them anymore either, they just go straight to my parents!

So, we have just been spending our days playing with grandparents, sliding on the slides and driving the toy car all over the place. Chloe had become quite a good driver and can even park it in its correct spot in the garage. The kids will be sad when we finally move into our new house, but I think having all their toys back might make up for it. =) The best part of all of this though is how close Chloe and Abby have become. Since they don't have any friends to play with my parents neighborhood, they have been forced to only play with each other and have just become the best of friends. It is pretty dang sweet!

Oh how I love that last part. What? Liking your sisters? Being friends? I guess we all like each other...why didn't I know I didn't have other friends that forced that? ;) j/k
