Little Sprout got quite a few amazing gifts. There were lots of books (we are a reading family), adorable beaded socks, movies, a couple toys (thankfully not too many), and her favorite: a flashlight looking thing that has little colored lights inside. When you push the button, the lights spin at high speed, creating really cool patterns. Little Sprout loves that one best so far.
After everyone left (well, Dad was still hanging around) the neighbor boys came over and played in our leaf pile with the Sprouts. Oh! It was so funny to watch them. The boys would bury themselves, and Little Sprout would yell "Oh, No!" and quickly uncover their faces.
She even helped rake up some more leaves. Everyone wanted that pile as big as they could get it.
Big Sprout had a blast hiding in the leaves. It is a family tradition every year for my Mom and the Sprouts to get together and play in the leaves. This year the Sprouts got TWO days of leaf fun! They went to the folks' place yesterday to play with Grandma, and then today they got to play at our house.
Really, it was the most amazing of all days. The sun was out, it was warm, and there were loved ones all around. Too bad Little Sprout is too young to remember it...
