We decorated the boys bedroom. It took us about a week and they were not allowed to come inside until it was all done. It’s a space/planet theme! Also has glow-in-the-dark planet and star stickers. When the light shines through the curtains it looks really cool! Click here watch video.

They were so excited. They love it!

Will only has 4 more days of school!

Car Racing and a Fireplace

We finally got around to putting new gas logs in our fireplace and cleaning it out. So now we can enjoy a cozy fire! The boys love it.

Last week the boys raced their cars in the Awana Grand Prix. Unfortunately, they did not go very fast. Will’s didn’t even make it all the way down the track! We will have to work on improvements for next year’s race. But they enjoyed working on the cars and had fun at the race.

We finished reading Little House on the Prairie and decided to “play” Little House with Lincoln Logs. We made a covered wagon and cabin.

Sweet Boys

We were very sick last weekend and the boys took care of us. They made us supper and get-well cards.

Rice Krispies with milk (Will poured it by himself), a pop tart, and cup of water. Isn’t that adorable? Sadly, I was too sick to eat it. Sad smile We appreciated it and were so touched that several days after, we wrote them a nice thank-you and surprised them with a toy.

DSC05420Will was a good brother to read to Evan. One afternoon they went to the neighbor’s house to play, which was fun for them and good for us!

Thankfully we are on the mend…although the coughs seem to linger. I suppose we might have them all winter long!
