Sleepovers are grand!
Two long time compadres who love God, inspire each other in their walks with Him, and always, always make each other laugh. You can't help but laugh just listening in on their laughter, reminiscing, and "proverbial wisdom".
I think my favorite memory of this visit was on Friday night. Although Tom had to go teach, Jamey and Cara had driven back with us to the hotel, the kids got to go swimming, and we ordered in pizza so we could eat dinner easily all together. Well, long story short our room had only one double bed...so we had 8 kiddos (yep, count that out loud), 3 adults and one rousing game of WVU college football game on. Jamey and Cara don't have T.V. and there kids are major sports enthusiasts so you can picture the scene. But that's not the funny part...Maddie and Kelcie, our two girlie-girls, were prancing all over the room the entire evening talking up a storm and for the most part entertaining each other so well that no one gave them a lick of attention. Well, as everybody was getting ready to leave I happened to walk over behind a large overstuffed chair (where Jamey had been sitting) and noticed there were Ritz cracker crumbs EVERYWHERE. When I pointed it out, Jamey said, ah, yes, the girls were I believe making "baby cakes." This just cracked Cara and I up to no end. I know it was late and maybe you just had to be there but those two are just too funny with their imaginations. Cracker crumbs clean up easily, but memories last a long time these days in our children's minds. What a joy to watch a 2nd generation friendship blooming!
