Sleeping Angels

Last week,  when Matt and I went in to check on Hudson and Hunter before heading to bed ourselves,  we found this....

They'd been asking to have a campout for weeks...and the next morning, they told me that since we wouldn't let them sleep in the family room, they were pretending to have a campout on their floor! 

Hunter is sleeping like an angel!

And so is Hudson...this picture, in particular, I love because Hudson's sleep was so restless for so long...and now we can count on him the most out of any of our kids to sleep soundly all night long!  (It only took 4 years...but now he's awesome!)

I love these pictures of them sleeping -- especially how they are facing each other in their sleep.  They are such good buddies, and they really look out for each other.  I know that our moments to catch them in these peaceful, little boy moments will quickly pass, so we are trying like crazy to enjoy the most out of them!

Wordless Wednesday

*These pictures are from December....when I came in to get Easton up from his nap one afternoon, this is what I found...

I know it's Worldess Wednesday, but when I took my memory card out of my camera to find the perfect pictures, I came across these instead...

My boys thought it would be fun to take pictures of THEIR pictures.  (These are from a camping trip with Nana and Grandpa Steve.)  These are just two ... of the 25 I was surprised with! 

They're developing a new genre of photography...Photographs Imitating Photographs Imitating Life.  Or something like that!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A toilet box...or a clown car?

On Sunday, Nana and Grandpa Steve (Matt's parents) came for a visit!  (Truth is Steve came to help Matt in a new toilet -- YAY! -- and Nana came to teach piano lessons -- another YAY!)

The toilet proved to be more fun for the entire family than we could ever imagine!  Not only do Matt and I have a working, water-saving toilet (that the kids ask regularly to use!), but the kids got a great "box house" out of the big toilet box.  The trick was to see how many...or WHO...we could fit in their house.

We had the three older kids in the box with no problem, and Easton was certainly checking it out -- he wasn't entirely sure he wanted to be in there.  But that quickly changed...and soon he was in the box with the other 3!

It was like a clown car!  When they left ... they just kept coming and coming and coming...and coming out of that box! 

But they decided that wasn't enough.  The kids thought it would be great fun to see if we could fit Grandpa Steve in, too!  (The funny thing about kids is this... the four of those kids put together weighs more than I do, and if you added up their height, they're easily a foot taller than me.  But there is no way I was going to fit in that box!  I wish I could still bend the way those little bodies do!!) 

So Grandpa Steve was a good sport and tried it out, too...

At least Easton thought it was fun...

He had a built-in jungle gym!

Our kids always have so much fun playing with their grandparents, and we are SO blessed to live close to both sets that they can visit frequently.  I hope that no matter where we live, our kids will continue to foster loving and fun relationships with their grandparents! 

Happy Tuesday!

Wordless Wednesday

(So not entirely wordless...I'm trying to decide if I like color or black and white better in these pictures, and since I can't decide, you get to see both.!)
