Little monkey at the top of the ladder (Daddy was at the bottom). He has been wanting to climb on Uncle Wyatt's banister so bad! If not that... the couch? Uncle Wyatt doesn't have a tree worth climbing, and Clayton's been suggesting a climbing wall "like Uncle Charlie's", but in the mean-time I hope to make some friends that have some good out door playing!
We got to church this week, and once again really enjoyed ourselves! My head is spinning with the accumulation of so many new names and faces - I'm just glad that people have been generous enough to come say hello! There's Gina-who-has-four-girls, and a-new-baby-boy (her husband makes rocket parts for NASA?), then there's Lori and Scott -who-have-the-family-of-eight-children-and-take-up-a -whole-row! Amber and Mark, Scott and Kimberly, Mike and Trish, Len and Holly, Carrie and Scott (there's a lot of Scott's at this church, huh?!) Anyway, you get the idea.
Here at the house, a Contractor was working away at the garage door today. We are having it extended upwards so we can park the van inside. Apparently the neighborhood is likely to complain if there is a honkin' oversized van parked in front of Wyatt's house all the time. I suggested we just tint the windows darker, and get the Mercedes emblem kit, then we could look a little more posh in keeping with the Jones's! Unfortunately my idea fell on two sets of deaf ears. There goes my final attempt at those fancy rims... O'well =o)
Please take note of my little Olie brushing her teeth, and Susie helping me make pancakes this morning. Also, the last picture is of my number one son voluntarily washing all the dishes in the sink after breakfast! What a guy!
Well, on to the next thing! Duty and honor calls (not to mention a very stinky diaper that has insisted on residing next to my desk chair these past ten minutes!!)
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
