To add to the goodness, the girls also got a visit from some of their AZ cousins - silly Connor, Ashley, and Ethan. I unfortunately did not get any pics of the chaos, but let me tell you that the girls were on cloud 9 as they got to run around, wrestle, explore, and just plain be silly with their dearly beloved cousins.
It was so fun seeing how happy they were...ALL day. We definitely need many more days just like this.

Doug and the girls and I went down to Fallbrook on Saturday to pick up my good ol' friend Clyde (a.k.a. the very first car I ever bought - a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo - that Doug's parents have had for the past few years and are kindly letting us use now that Doug sold his Tacoma). While Doug and the girls stayed the night, I drove back home to have some uninterrupted time to paint. It was a long, lonely night (to be quite honest) but well worth it. The girls were too sleepy Sunday night to notice (they didn't get back until close to 10pm), but when they woke up Monday morning they were ecstatic to see their PINK room. Roo actually came running up to me later that morning, threw her arms around my legs, and emphatically said "Thank you for my pink room, mama...thank you SO much! I love it!!" Needless to say, it was really cute to see how something as small as a free can of paint could bring so much happiness and joy to the two little girls I love. (By the way - thank you mom for the paint. I know I said it before, but I really, REALLY appreciate you thinking of us when you picked it up).
Anyway, enough of my rambling. Here are some pictures from my fun weekend of painting...(coloring isn't the greatest since they were taken in poor light at 2am in the morning, but it's gives you an idea of the before and after)

One thing this little family of ours loves is PANCAKES. Yumm. What a wonderful way to start of the day. While flipping these tasty lil' flap jacks this morning, I couldn't help but snap a photo and share one of the small things that makes our day just a little happier...

Fingers crossed...waiting anxiously.
**Status Update: According to the MRI results, Doug has a "partial tear of the fibular collateral ligament and distal biceps femoris with edema in the adjacent soft tissue, posterolateral corner injury is suspected. Additionally strain of the popliteus muscle is also seen."**
So - some partial tears, tissue swelling, and muscle strain...that puts him out of jiu jitsu for a minimum of six weeks. Needless to say, he's not a happy camper right now.
