Watching the Father's Day video


What does it take to get two kids to sleep in on the weekend?? Don't ask me because it is not happening here. Sunday morning we woke up to our usual routine. I was hoping the kids would sleep until at least 8....yeah right, not in my little world.





First Will woke up around 7. This is the time he has to be up during the week, so I guess it really is good that he stays in his routine. No, really, help me feel better about having to get up at the crack of dawn! He came and got in our bed. I always make him go potty first, because I am just not convinced that he is completely potty trained. He has only had one accident in 8 months...but still that fear of being peepeed on is high on my list of "don't want to deal with".



We were almost ready to doze off and I feel this little poke-poke-poke of a little hand full of a not-so-fluffy bunny. Livi was right beside my side of the bed. I swear she should be some type of a person who needs sneaking up on people skills because I NEVER heard her come in the room, much less creep within inches of me.





So we all crawled into bed to do a quick snuggle. I have to admit, this is one of my favorite things on the weekend. Mostly because I can almost doze off and not feel guilty that I should be watching one or the other.





Anyhow, every Sunday we have pancakes and sausage. Way back when Mike and I were dating and before kids, we used to go to IHOP for breakfast. Well, two kids in within 16 months will cure you of wanting to get up early on the weekends. So we do it at home now.





While I was mixing up the pancakes, I flipped the laptop on. Mike has sent us a video of him opening his father's day box. The kids actually think he is really talking to him like when we do the Video Tele-Conferences. They sit and watch them over and over.




Will really didn't want me to take any pictures...so he said he would do a 'silly face'....apparently in a four year old's world that mean putting your tongue on the side of your cheek like you have a big wad of Skoal in it. I guess we have been in TX long enough for him to gain some skills.


Can you tell how tan he is getting?? We swim quite a bit. Every Friday they do water activities at his preschool as well. I slather both of them down with sunscreen, but they are really getting that golden color.



Happy Tuesday all....I am off to grill some chick chick chicken....

I so wish my kids would tan. But, sadly no. We go from transparent to red in 30 seconds flat.

Nothing is better than a morning snuggle. Your kiddos have very pretty tans right now. I so wish my kiddos could tan that way.

Obviously these were taken in the house. We have a tint on the windows to keep alot of the heat out. So, I think the indoor lighting is making them look a bit tanner than they really are. But they both do look golden.

I love lazy weekend mornings.

I never thought of how the internet affected people in this way. When my dad would go overseas we only had letters and really bad audio tapes to keep in contact with him. I think it's SO wonderful that you can teleconference with him and see videos. It's got to make it a *little* bit easier.

I love that expression on Livi's face...they are both so adorable...

Beautiful kids! Mine never sleep in when I want them to, either.

I played.

Arlene said...

Your kids are so gorgeous, and that fabulous golden skin is making me quite envious!!!!
I played too :-)

I love golden skin on kids. I know it's not healthy,but I love it anyway. Mine are lathered up every day in SPF30 or more, but they are starting to get golden too.

I played too, thanks for visiting my WCW.

LOL about the wad of Skoal!!

I think sleeping in until 7 is fabulous since a certain 2 year old I know starts yelling, "Mommmyyy! Come!!! Sleep!!! With!!! You!!!" somewhere around 6 am...

That's great that he could send you a video with him opening the gift...I'm sure that made the kids' day!
