Back to bed, Maaaa-Maaa!

Before we left for Kentucky, Lily's Nana came over for lunch. She brought some corn-on-the-cob that she had made. This was Lily's first-ever taste of corn-on-the-cob. She loved it!
We got back last night from our family reunions. Lily had a great time playing with all boy cousins, and she learned how to stalk other people carrying a nerf gun. She had the best time. Of course, her cousins were so sweet to her. When she would pretend to shoot them, Wyatt would turn around and raise his hand claiming to "surrender in a peaceful way" for Lily. She talked about playing with Wyatt every day since, and today she told me she wanted the 2 Wyatts to come over and play. Of course, she was talking about Wyatt and his brother, Alex.
Saturday's reunion which was my Mom's side of the family had everyone in attendance- 21 people. Then, Sunday's reunion which was my Dad's side of the family had over 40 people. I lost count at 40. We had two big days of good food and great family times.
Then, this morning, we had to get up at 6:30 to be ready for the painters who are painting our walls inside "toasty". But, Lily calls them chocolate milk walls. I like her wording better. Since the painters are here- that meant no nap for Lily. So, we are both going to be ready to turn in about 7:30- and I am not joking. We are completely worn out! Hence the title of today's blog- this morning when I went to wake Lily up- she said, "Back to bed, Maaaa-Maaaaa!" over and over again.
So, hopefully at some point this week, I can blog more about videos, pictures of the reunions, and my gorgeous daughter. The painters will be here for at least 2 weeks- so we will see how much computer time I can get in!

Oh my gosh this is too funny - you have to visit my blog for the photo I just posted of Savannah eating her first ever ear of corn! She, too, loved it! In fact, ate one and then finished her brother's! It's so cute to see the little ones tackling it!
