After dinner we went back upstairs to paint. Soph called out this name and I just had to start another. But our time was winding down and the kiddos had to start getting ready for bed, as they had gymnastics early the next morning. The house had recently filled up with additional grandparents so the girls were sleeping in the playroom. I listened to Kristie read their bedtime story as I quickly finished the last strokes before kissing them goodnight.
