Adventures in Babysitting

We had Sophie's friends McKenna and Ella over while their parents went out on a date last Saturday night. The weather was kind of dumpy and we couldn't go to the park, so we had lots of indoor fun. The girls played dress-up, colored pictures, played with the tool set (the play one) and generally ran all over the place having a great time.

Owen even enjoyed playing dress-up. Have you ever seen such a cute sword-wielding bunny?

Owen, we do not gnaw on our sword!
Well, the dumpy weather took a more sinister turn, and became a thunderstorm/tornado warning, sirens wailing and all. Greg, of course, was unconcerned, but as we were in charge of other people's kids, I was more urgent about the need to go to the basement. So, we set the kids up in Greg's workshop with our portable DVD player to watch the "Bee Movie."
(Yeah, that's Michael Jordan watching over us in the background.) The girls thought it was a great adventure, never really asking or caring too much why we were down there. We didn't have to stay long. When we came upstairs again, the girls all got into their pjs to finish the movie. They snuggled on the couch, and eventually on a makeshift "bed" on the floor until McKenna and Ella's mom and dad came to pick them up.
