Gingerbread House

I'm sitting here waiting for the kiddos to fall asleep so "Santa" can come so I thought I'd share or fun project we did today! Last night, I had to run to Target to pick up a few things and I saw a gingerbread house kit. "Cool!" I though, this will be something fun to do with the kids!! So today, we all got up and started in on it. It was really easy and really fun. I put the house together, Jason took pics, and the boys decorated with all the candy it came with. Even Sawyer sat up on the table and helped decorate! It turned out pretty cute our first try at a gingerbread house. Later in the day, I was showering and Jason was watching the boys. He noticed that Sawyer had slipped out of the bedroom and he found him in the kitchen.... on the table... eating the gingerbread house!! The candy was all GONE, the side of the house was caved in, and the poor little gingerbread man had no legs. SO funny!!! I'm glad I took pics before hand. It is just a funny thing that happened that will turn into a funny family story we can talk about for years to come! I think the gingerbread house will surely be a new Christmas tradition in our house.

Snow Day!!

What a fun day we've had! We woke up this morning to school being canceled. We have been in our jammies all day watching movies. Matter of fact, it's after 2 and we are STILL in our jammies! We had some soup for lunch and I'm going to make chicken and noodles for dinner. My house is a wreck since we have been home all day and the boys have been playing, but I don't even care! We've had such a fun day!

The Great Bed Switcheroo!

This past weekend we had a big time bed switcheroo. We are just trying to prepare for the baby which will be here in about 12 weeks and also make the most efficient use of our small space. So, we moved Sawyer from his crib/pack 'n play into a toddler bed. He is doing pretty well! That first night I had to pick him up and put him back in bed about 10-15 times before he got the hint that ti was bedtime and this is where he was sleeping. Once he went down though, he stayed down for the night and looked like such a big boy! Tonight is night #3 in the toddler bed and he is snoozing away in there! Some friends of ours are letting us use one of their bunk beds as well. So we tore down Brodie's twin bed and the other toddler bed and moved the bunks in. It has a twin on top and a full on bottom. So, Brodie is sleeping on top and Deacon and Truman are sleeping on bottom. They LOVE it! Right now it's a toy and a bed for them! Overall the bed switcheroo went very well and all the boys are happy!
