Bloggy Fix

I haven't been able to comment on blogs lately, so I did a little look up.  I found an explanation here and it seems to have fixed the problem.  If you've had a problem signing in to comment, try unclicking "remember me" or "stay signed in" and that might help. 

Now, I can go back to commenting on all the excitement of other people's lives...

Kissy Face

Chalk Paint

I'm trying desperately to keep these boys entertained.  Cheaply.  I don't know how I never came up with this idea myself, but it was a hit!

Eli was way more interested in crushing the chalk than actually painting.  Come to think of it, I don't know that he ever really painted.
 Does Luke look hot?  Trust me, I looked much hotter.  And not the good kind of hot.

 Just a few of our creations.

We had to clean up right after this picture since Judah woke up from his nap. Upon seeing all the excitement, he immediately started wreaking havoc.  It was fun while it lasted.

Angry Birds!

Luke and Eli L-O-V-E to play Angry Birds on their grandma's phone (or anyone else's phone that they can manage to get their hands on).  When we saw this craft, they were all in.  Even though by the end of the craft I was growling, (not that it was so hard, but just because I'm always growling by the end of any craft that involves my children and more than one step) they were thrilled with the results, and I was proud that at the end of it all it still somewhat resembled the original.  An easy, cheap craft that was fun.

I remember looking at the blog of a friend with three boys a while back and seeing the pictures of her boys sitting sweetly in a chair together, looking for all the world like they were the best of friends and thinking, "I'm not sure if that will ever happen in our house."  But it did. And it does.  And I love it.
