"We JUST went shopping, that's what GiJu told me to say"
"Don't come in here; I'm hiding your things under my bed, don't look under the bed"
"PaPa I'm supposed to keep you busy so you don't see we are baking you a cake"
So on and so forth, she just kept the running comments. Luckily PaPa played along didn't ask any questions and just thought we were eating cake for dinner. My aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents all came to celebrate and was a great way for them to get to see the kids as well. It sure was fun. The kids got to stay up late as they took very late naps after an adventure out with Gabriella to an indoor play place. We will all sleep well tonight.
