GIFTS & MORE GIFTS!

My sister in-law wasn't able to see Isaiah for his birthday, so she planned to take the kids out to lunch and the movies this past Saturday. Since it's Danny's birthday coming up (on Wednesday), she decided to give him his gift now also.

It was a nice quiet break for me because she took them out for a few hours, and my husband went to shoot some hoops with his friend. They wanted to practice for the 3 on 3 basketball tournament that our church's outreach is having this Saturday.

Anyway, here is my sis in-law with the kids before the boys opened their gifts. Danny already knew what he was getting. He was excited to open it up!

Yay...a Nintendo DSi! He already had a DS, but unfortunately it got stolen! I felt so bad for him, but assured him we would get him a new one for his birthday. Well, in the meantime, he already asked my sister in-law for one, so she ended up getting it for him! Doesn't he look so happy? We're happy for him too!!

And she bought him so games to go along with it!

Look at Isaiah's cheesy grin! He still looks half asleep! Well, I don't know how he could be. She gave him $100 for his birthday!

She took them to lunch at Casa Azteca, and then they went to see Ice Age 3! They had a great time with her!!

What a beautiful relationship between your children and their Aunt. My son is like that with my sister, Candy. You just have to be so thankful for it.

I've missed you my sweet friend. Thank you for bearing with me as I don't post too often right now and get to comments days later. I am trying....

Much love to you, my sweet friend.
