Why Caite is the Best-est Babysitter Ever!

Saturday night Brian and I got to go on a date night! Love date nights. And with three little ones at home they are usually few and far between. (The cost of dinner and a movie is hard to justify when you are buying formula and diapers.) My cousin Sarah had invited anyone who wanted to, to go see the new Harry Potter and we jumped on it. It was so much fun! I really enjoyed the movie and then we had a great time visiting with Kyle and Sarah at dinner. I am really lucky to have 3 great cousins that are my same age and live close enough that we can get together on a pretty regular basis.

Caite was kind enough to come hang out with the kiddos and give us the night off. My kids love it when Aunt Caite comes to play with them, and who could blame them....

We came home to find a very large blanket tent had taken over the living room and they were all snuggled up watching cartoons. Jake was sound asleep, but Evie couldn't wait to give me a tour of their "fort"!

Caitlin had also not only made dinner, but done all the dishes as well! Best babysitter ever! And the price for almost 7 hours of her time? A skein of soy silk yarn in a beautiful teal color... I love it when I can pay people in yarn! I wonder where else that could work for me, hmmmm.
