The Boys

This is how I found Carver the other night. He fell asleep with his book on his face--just like his mama! He loves to read and we usually have to force him to put his book down and turn off his light. On this night, his exhaustion won out.


And not to be outdone by his older brother, Zinabu went to bed with his Spiderman costume and wore his mask. I had to gently remove the elastic string from his curls and get the mask off so he could sleep better. Too cute.

I don't know how it is in your house, but my kids have NOT adjusted to daylight savings. They are up at 5:00 am, wide awake. They are also having a hard time falling asleep, just from being a little overtired, I think. Not to mention it gets dark at 4:30 in the afternoon, and I look at the clock and wonder what we'll do for another 3 hours each evening. Last night we went to the YMCA and they played on the climbing wall and the huge inflatable pirate ship while I exercised, then we all went swimming together. Did you know they have treadmills now with TV screens on them? This was something new to me and it begs the question: are you really exercising if you're watching Jon and Kate Plus 8 at the same time?

We love the time change! The boys have been concking out more easily and freely and bed time comes earlier once again. Before we always had to wait until dark and now the boys don't know that these days dark means earlier, haha.

Hey, your CD is on its way. Remember to listen closely to the darling song on track #7. :)

i used to pretend to be asleep with my book in my hand if my mom came in, because if she caught me still up i'd be in a ton of trouble. when she left, i would pull out the flashlight and keep reading. makes me wonder if carver was really asleep. :)

Oh My...those pics are seriously the most amazing pics I have ever seen.

Boys, oye sweet sweet boys.

I have an entire book of pics of Mr. B in costumes his entire childhood. There was one superhero costume he wore almost every day for a year. It melts your heart.
