Wednesday I took Jon, Cheryl, Erin and Evan out to dinner. We had Chinese at their favorite restaurant - Little City. I pulled into the parking lot; they were not there yet, so I just waited in the car. Less than 5 minutes later they arrived.
The car door flew open, Erin came running out yelling, "Nanny!" and ran into my arms, even before I had a chance to get out of the car. Hugs and kisses ensued, then we got out of the car.
Evan shuffled out of the car holding a kleenex and declared, "I'm sick, Nanny. I'm not going to kiss you." Imagine that! A 4 year old that was worried about sharing germs! But he did hug my leg - sort of.
Yesterday on my way home from work I was going to go to Evan's baseball game. Got a call from mommy to say he still wasn't feeling good and was not going to play. So I made a detour and went to their house.
Again, Erin came running over with hugs and kisses. Evan walked up behind and said, "I'm still sick." I said, "Can Nanny have kisses anyway?" He got a big grin on this face, nodded yes, and gave me the biggest hug and kisses ever! Sweet!
Cheryl made stuffed bell peppers for dinner. They were delicious. We visited for a while, sampled the macadamia nuts, and pretty soon it was bath time. Tell Nanny good-bye and give her kisses!
Nanny ended the night with boogers on her blouse. I am not complaining in the least!
