Here is a small smattering of what we have been doing.
Hannah has been perfecting the art of blowing kisses. She only does it at bedtime when we say goodnight. Last night I could tell she was tired. When I picked her up she started blowing kisses. No one was around to blow them too. I am pretty sure she was trying to tell me she wanted to go to bed. Funny, clever girl.
My absence in blogging for a week or two; the flu hit our home.
Olivia handled it the best. She pretty much slept for two days and made a full recovery.
Hannah and I did NOT do so well. She had a hard time sleeping through the night, so I had a hard time sleeping through the night. Ryan got home one morning after working a call shift and took one look at me and said I looked terrible and then snapped this picture. Lovely husband.
Still working on getting better. Ryan is so great at sitting down with our kids and snuggling with them while enduring some kid show.
The highlight for the month for the Kaitlynn and Jack was the Harlem Globetrotters. Ryan got tickets for the three of them and they had a fun night out. Originally I thought about going and getting a sitter for the younger kids but decided against in the end. I am glad I did since Hannah still wasn't feeling well.
Ryan took some funny videos of the kids laughing. Well mostly it was of Jack laughing. They thought it was the ultimate! Jack didn't realize it was a fixed game so he was quite concerned about the score the whole time.
One morning Ryan was really frustrated because he couldn't find his face wash. He may have ranted a little bit about needing a bigger house with a bathroom with a drawer just for his stuff. Currently his things are in a travel bag under the sink. Things get a little tight when you have six people and two small drawers. Anyway I digress, later that morning I found his face wash in Hannah's toy elephant. It made me smile. I can see how it was a perfectly logical place for a toddler to put it.
Happy little girl.
The last remains of the box Ryan's fancy saw came in. His box was the kids favorite christmas present. They loved that thing to pieces, literally.
Olivia was being daddy's little helper.
He added another light in back half of our basement.
I LOVE our Little People playhouse. Nanny got this for Kaitlynn years ago and all of the kids have had their turn to play with it. Hannah is at the age where she is discovering how fun it can be. It may be one of those toys I wont be able to get rid of just because of the hours my children have loved it.
Sometimes I like to take pictures of things I cook that actually work out. Pizza Poppers are a favorite in our home.
A family in our ward owns a gymnastic gym. For a primary activity they let the kids come play one evening.
Ryan showing off his skills. I tried to do this and ended up with a massive headache!
This girl loves to hang. Its kind of impressive how long she can hold on. At least we think it is impressive, though we may be a little biased!
