Quality Time

Had a great night with the fam. We've watched several movies over the past few days including Paranormal Activity (which creeped Zuly out big time), Drag Me to Hell (which really grossed me out) plus, I didn't like the ending, The Exorcism of Emily Rose (which hubby finds scary & I find  a bit boring), Bedtime Stories (which had the boys & us laughing)...I LOVED the Guinea Pig with the bug eyes in that movie, and lastly, The Notebook (which is one of my favorite love stories). Of course us girls were sniffling & teary-eyed while watching that last movie. I really enjoyed staying home & relaxing today (I think we all needed it too). The family leaves Tuesday evening & I really wish they didn't have to. Ian has been attached to the hip to Koko & Zuly is amazed at his patience & how sweet he has been for playing with Ian ALL day!! Poor Gio looked miserable because he was sick & he slept almost all day. He could barely eat his soup...bendito.  Luckily, I got his antibiotics so hopefully they will kick in soon. I also read books to the boys. Evan kept getting jealous & would not let Ian sit too close to me when I was reading to them. Too funny. lol We were also looking through my Richard Scary books (from when I was little) & I was surprised at how well Ian could name things in English. Very smart little boy!!  Evan was saying the words right along with him (he even said a few that I thought he didn't know...trying hard to impress his Titi).  We have had a great week & I'm sad that it's coming to an end. Poor Zuly has no clue how she's going to tear her little guy away from our boys because he has become so close to them. I'm hoping the next 2 days move go by very slowly so that we can enjoy having them here a little longer.
