"BOYS are found everywhere-on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to . Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older brothers and sisters tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is TRUTH with dirt on its face, BEAUTY with a cut on its finger, WISDOM with bubble gum in its hair and the HOPE of the future with a frog in its pocket." -Alan Beck

Mess Makers

So a couple weeks ago I put the boys up at the counter and gave them dinner. while they were eating I went downstairs to switch the laundry and start a new load. I was gone for maybe 5 minutes. I herd them laughing histerically while I was downstairs. I thought they were just feedind our dog Rusty since they loved doing that lately and they think it is so funny for some reason. Well I was SOOOO wrong. I walked into the kitchen and they were covered in flour! I just stood there for a second in shock and I did'nt know how to react. Should I get mad, should I laugh? Well they looked so cute and funny I had to laugh at them and take some photos. They also got Rusty.

How did they get the flour you ask. Well on the counter where they eat I have a couple canisters. With sugar and flour. I have never seen them show interest in them so I don't know how that little idea popped up in their head..Crazy, Funny Boys =)
p.s. Clean up was not so bad with me fancy vacuume I bought a few months ago (refer to previous blog a few months ago) =)

So we had the most perfect weather this weekend and just in time for my kids to start feeling better. It was just about 70 degrees. My parents, brother and sister came over for a few hours and we had our first little barbecue of the year. It was so nice to play and eat outside with the family. I hope this weather is here to stay!

sick little boys

So for two weeks now I have had sick kids. 2 weeks ago Eli started getting really sick, after a few days of him getting worse and worse I took him to the doctors and just as I thought he had Croupe.Poor little guy was sooo miserable. I knew Noah would be getting sick also because that is the way it works. Well sure enough he also got very sick at the same time as Eli. It has been so sad just having them lay around and them hardly eating anything. We have been pretty isolated the past 2 weeks. Today they are both much better thank goodness because we had such a nice warm weekend so they got to go outside and play finally.
