So I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with me. I don't know why I do this. I don't know why it makes me happier than almost anything. But it does! It is very rare for a kid to get to sleep in our bed. If you are sick and Josh is at work then it is allowed. OR if you catch me in a super sleepy state in the middle of the night when Josh is at work I might tell you to climb on in. BUT there is a catch. They have to let me photograph them!! You can see that I started with just Wyatt cause I knew he wouldn't freak out about the flash, but I've gotten braver about angering the others! Ha! Feast your eyes on these little nuggets of hilarity from the past year!

The boys came home and we all went out to Chick-fi-A for dinner, which really is a treat to them cause we never eat inside there. I guess the Disney trip was still heavy on their minds cause Wyatt was so sweet and told Annie he wanted to bring his Disney World autograph book to the restaurant to make this a "character meal." Now you know my first response is NO cause those books are just for that trip but it was such a sweet gesture and made her feel so important I kept my mouth zipped! He brought her a Sharpie and she was in hog heaven. See that precious little smile? Love that my boys know how to make this girly feel important!

We started off the morning with a decorated kitchen, name pancakes and orange julius, per our b-day tradition. But of course we had to start off with presents! In the past couple of years we have cut down to just 3 gifts for each kid. One from us, and the other two from their siblings. It is nice cause the kids know exactly what to expect and it is easier on me! This year Noah got him this nerf ball he has been wanting. You know Wyatt has been a fan of balls since he was a wee one so this was perfect for him.
From us he got the Nerf gun he has been wanting and was super excited. So much of what we have for the boys are shared toys so he was pumped to have one just for himself.
Rosie got him a Turbo game for his 3ds which was a huge hit. It was really sweet cause she honestly picked it out all by herself and knew this is something he would love.
We finished up the morning with finally getting around to breakfast and then heading out to meet family for a special lunch. Both the boys bdays fell right around our Disney trip this year so we didn't have big parties. I personally loved this, although I'm sure the boys would tell you differently! Ha! Love this little guy!

Wyatt requested a Minecraft creeper box and spent FOREVER glueing all the pieces on all by himself. Made me a bit nervous to hand over the glue gun but he did a great job!
Noah stuck with his love of Harry Potter and made this Monster Book of Monsters. It was actually the easiest to make! And the super exciting part was that he won for his age group and came home with a gift card to Hobby Lobby!
I'm thinking next year I'll actually let Annie skate! This year, though, she was happy to hang out eating snacks with her friends!
Annie got the movie Brave, which she immediately fell in love with. She doesn't call the main character Merida, she calls her "Brave Annie." It is pretty adorable and has been quite convenient cause we are able to remind her that she is Brave Annie whenever she gets scared!
The boys of course got bears along with the next two Harry Potter movies! They both love them some HP so they were thrilled to now be the owners of 4 of the movies. And of course the day was completed with a batch of Valentine's Day heart cookies!
