We had to go buy a bunk bed with the futon bed on the bottom for Katie and Brittany to share. They are almost exactly 10 years a part. Katie was born October 19th and Brittany on October 27th. We are doing our best to make her feel welcomed and loved and for the most part I think she feels good about being with us.
Jeff is real happy that Brittany is here. He actually has someone close in age to talk to. Poor Katie though, she is really going to have a hard time with the fact that Britt will need some privacy every now and then. Actually mostly now than then! haha... So I am sure it will take some time for everyone to get used to an addition to the family. We normally would see her once a year. Even though Chris has visitation, we were never "allowed" to get her on weekends or holidays. Thanks to her mother. That's a whole different issue all together.
Not sure what we are doing tomorrow for the 4th but I am sure we will do something that doesn't involve being in a crowd of people. I hate crowds.
Hope everyone enjoys their holiday.
