My secret obsession!

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!

Our little Punzel!

Annie's favorite princess is Rapunzel, by far!  She was so cute cause we had a girl's night when the boys went to the movies and she begged for some princess hair.  Princess hair?!  I literally had to google it and watch some Youtube videos to figure it out. And what I figured out was that with the 28 hairs on little girl's head it was gonna be pretty hard!  She's so, so sweet, though, and just loved what I came up with.  So thankful she's not too demanding yet!  She even had me fix her Rapunzel doll's hair the same way with a ribbon and all.    She really was so tickled!

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!

Wy's birthday!

My little boy is officially 7!  Hard to believe we thought he would our baby boy forever and now we're having another one!  And this big guy is gonna be a great big brother!

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!

Valentine's Day boxes!

We were happy to go to our annual Valentine's Day party with our homeschool group again this year.  They kids had been planning their boxes for months now and we were super pleased with how they turned out. 

Rosie of course requested a "Punzel tower."  She helped do all of it and was the most thrilled with the little pic of her from Halloween that we put in the tower window. 

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!

Valentine's Day!

Look at these little cuties all waiting for their Valentine's Day surprises!!  Well, I guess two of them waited patiently and the other couldn't stand it any longer!  This year each of the kiddos got a stuffed animal as usual, a candy, and this time a movie.  They were thrilled!

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!
