1. Grandparents. God bless these wonderful people. This year Eva spent one night at my parent's and one night at Ryan's parents. For us, this was perfect. It left her get out to be spoiled. It gave me some snuggle one-on-one time with little man.
7. Be thankful for technology! Face time. Texting. Phones with cameras that make it so easy to send photos and videos back and forth. This helps so much!
10. Occasionally bride with ice cream. Or snow cones. Once in a while a little "encouragement" to make it a great day is okay and helps keep the calm for everybody.
