It's not everyday the fourth child gets the spotlight :)

While Daddy was away...

My brother and his wife (aka Unka Bwian and Aunt Wawen) came to play!!
Unfortunately, they forgot their camera, and I didn't think to take many pictures.

Eli and Titus stomping in the muddy puddles
(sorry, Uncle Brian...this is the only picture you made it in! See yourself??)

Aunt Lauren holding Josiah

Justus on his roller skates that he bought with money from Aunt Lauren and Uncle Brian

Muddy boy...this child is all boy!

Superheroes, Unite!!

Aunt Lauren did an amazing Optimus Prime impersonation...

...maybe a little too good! Eli would just stare at her with a straight face when she would talk like O.P.

Thanks for coming to play and help out! We love you guys :)

A Day in the Life

8:30 Come lazily out of the bedroom when Derek comes to kiss me goodbye. I love that I get the mornings off :) Lay on the couch while the boys finish their TV time. (Yes, I was still tired.)
9:00 Take Eli upstairs to change his diaper. Start today's load of laundry. Today is diapers.
9:30 Sort sea shells on the couch with the boys into small, medium, and biggest and decide which ones are our favorite. Read the same book 3 times in a row. (Feed Josiah during all of this.)

10:00 Clean up sea shells and head upstairs to build with blocks. Break up a few fights over toys along the way and declare that I am going to start putting those toys away in an effort to stop the fighting all together (yeah, I know...probably hopeless as they will find new things to fight over.)
10:30 Change Josiah's diaper and clean out his nose (he seems to be snotty this morning.) Put him in the wrap for his morning nap.
10:45 Make Justus, Titus, and Eli a snack of Pistacchios, Cashews, a Peanut Butter Cookie,…

Enjoying the 80 Degree Evening

Our visit with Mimi and Grandbob

Image was acting up today, but I only have so much time to do this blog thing anymore!!! The pics that came up sideways were deleted, so there are a lot missing. And for some reason, it made me separate these pictures into two different slide shows...*Sigh*

A a LOT of rain can't keep us inside!!
