Bath time fun

I took some of them IN the tub, but it turned out those weren't all that G-rated. So, here are some cute pics hangin' out in their hoodie towels. (made with love by their Aunt Sarah!)

This picture is from almost a month ago. I was just going through some files that I haven't had a chance to edit or blog yet and I couldn't resist this one. I need to be in bed now. But, she's just so sweet. I need to do another post all about her, but for tonight, I'll just post this.

Movie Night

Aunt Sarah, Gracie and Max came to spend a few days with us last week and we decided to do a movie night. We talked it up all day, with plans to watch Cinderella or The Little Mermaid. We couldn't find either of those movies and ended up with Monsters, Inc.
We popped some popcorn and cuddled up together on the couch. Aidric and Grace sat through the whole thing...I wouldn't say they loved it, but they were definitely interested. Juliet watched about 45 minutes and was half asleep when I called it a night for her.

Max was chillin' in the swing and Aunt Sarah and Jules started the movie with a cuddle.

Until I got jealous and had to steal her. I looooved just having one kid on either side so peacefully.

and the milestone Chris has been waiting for

Aidric spent most of the weekend helping us with various projects around the house. He loved doing it and in a few cases, he really was helpful! (to read ALL about what we did, check out the house blog here.)

He is actually using his own hammer to hammer an old screw out of a cabinet. (cabinet was in the old laundry room- hung it in the garage for more storage out there)

he switched into his tennis shoes for the hard work..helping daddy make me a raised flower bed

I've really been looking forward to this milestone..

Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE to play games. Aidric received this CandyLand Castle game for Christmas and we hadn't opened it yet. Honestly, just waiting for a time when Jules was asleep and we could concentrate on playing it together. I am sad now that I waited so long. He LOVES it and absolutely understands the rules. He even "taught" Chris how to play later!

(For the record, he beat me 3x in a row, fair and square. He wasn't thrilled when I won the 4th game, but we're working on congratulating the winner and moving on...)

I've said it before....but I really love them

I'm going to go ahead and admit that I bribed him with candy to let me record this. He loves to read to Juliet and he was doing it (sans bribe), but as soon as I got my phone out to record it, he wanted nothing to do with it. I offered him a piece of candy, and he couldn't be happier to oblige =)

I think this is my all time fave video of them though. It just makes my heart happy. (only slightly disappointed that Jules refused to chime in with her usual shriek of "hoppppppeeeeee" on the happy page)
