Lily and her "sister"

This evening we went to my parent's house for dinner. It is becoming somewhat of a Monday tradition for us. Lily and I meet my sister and her 3 kiddos out there to hang out and have a nice, home cooked meal since our hubbies work late. Tonight Logan (my sister's oldest child and ONLY daughter) says to me: "Aunt Nikki, I want a sister. I wish Lily was my sister." I thought that was so sweet, and since I obviously know the incredible blessing it is to have a sister -- I told her that they PRACTICALLY ARE sisters. That seemed to make her pretty happy, but it started quite the debate round the dinner table between Logan and her 5 year old brother, Braden.
Logan: (to Lily) "You're my sister. Say sister."
Lily: "sista, sista, sista"
Braden: "No she's not your sister... she is your COUSIN!!!"
Repeat about 5 or 6 times.
This episode lasted until Payton (my sister's 17 month old son) nailed Braden in the head with his sippy cup. Laughter erupts. Never a dull moment when the whole gang is together. I love my family and as sad as I was to see the weekend come to a close, I realize that I really enjoy my Mondays.
Oh, and the night ended with Lily having "Booma" paint her toenails real quick before we left. They were ALREADY painted pink, but she wanted more. I painted them for the first time just the other day and she is a fan. She LOVES her little piggies, and she thinks she is just ALL THAT when her toes are painted. Actually, I agree.

We love to do that too but I never know what to do with her while they are drying - just what I need - polish all over the couch and the carpet - any great ideas over there?!?!?

I buy the quick-dry polish or the spray. Works in a jiffy.

I'll never forget the first time I painted Emmie's nails. She was so serious about it! It is a definate Mom and Daughter moment! I have yet to do it with Sophia. Probably this summer!

Chloe has to show ALL of her brothers a million times - it makes me laugh - but that's also a Sunday morning affair - we get that dress on and she must "show off"!!!

Monday night dinners do rock. Gotta love the happenings around the dinner table.

We'll definitly have to try the nail polish with Fia, I'm sure she would love it as well!
