She hummed merrily as she whipped up some breakfast using an easy waffle mix. She really hadn't spent much time in the kitchen! Betty Crocker, she was not!
"Ah, Haley. I was just looking at them! I wanted to see what colors they were!"
"Ian! Stop going in my room!"
"I already said I was sorry!" Ian groused.
"Come to the table guys, the waffles are done!" Eva announced brightly.
"Ah, all she can paint are big blobs!" Ian grumbled quietly, shoveling waffle in his mouth.
"It's not a blob!" Haley said.
"No!" Haley and Ian said together quickly. "We'll be good!" Haley promised, prompting her brother, "Won't we?"
Eva sighed. "I don't know..."
"Okay, but I'm trusting the two of you to be on your best behavior!" Eva said sternly. "Ian, you listen to your older sister!"
The house was quiet after the kids went off to school and Eva went to work. Nathaniel checked the reviews and then tried to find things to fill the day...
...like playing video games...
...or playing around on the computer...
So far nothing he really had no clue what he wanted to do now that his acting contracts were over!
Rachel rolled her eyes. "Ew! I would've told him to get lost!"
"Aw, I didn't want to hurt his feelings!" Haley said.
"Maybe he likes you!" Rachel teased, then made a face, "EW!"
Haley glanced over at her brother playing nearby. "Let's go up to my room!" she said, grabbing Rachel by the hand and pulling her upstairs.
Haley sighed heavily. "I don't know! There's no one I really like," she complained.
"What about Ar-MAN-do, your lover-boy?" Rachel teased, laughing.
Haley rolled her eyes. "No way! He's friends with Johnny!"
"Yeah, that's definitely not a point in his favor! Why would anyone ever want to hang out with him?!"
Haley shrugged, "He used to be nice," she said softly.
"Psh! He's never been nice to me!"
Haley rested her head on her knees, listening to Rachel vent about her half-brother. It wasn't disloyal if she thought Johnny was cute, was it? It's not like she wanted him to ask her to the dance!
Eva smiled. "Wow, you clean up nice!" she teased.
"What do you know? I am a man of many talents!"
"Come on, let's get started!" Eva said as the guests began to trickle in.
The girls had changed into pajamas and were enjoying their little slumber party!
Rachel threw the blankets off. "Do you hear someone laughing?" she asked.
The girls ran to the window and looked down. "It's my idiot brother and his friend!" Rachel screeched. "And they're egging your house!"
Johnny hid the eggs behind his back. "Cute jammies!" he teased, surprised that the girls had run out the door in their jammies.
Rachel took a step forward and stamped her foot angrily, "Johnny, you little rat!"
