Sundays



Ever since I became LDS, I learned the value of Sundays. We don't do the best Sabbath day activities ever, but in our own way, it is about our family and what is more Sabbath then that?. I try to stay away from work and try my hardest to focus on the boys. (except for that little nap)

Today our house was ruled by boys, I tried to snap a few pictures to just give you an idea of what you are missing. Here is the breakdown:

At church the two oldest boys chowed down Lifesavers. The whole pack; ate them like candy. We came home and they did the same. Monkey just told me somebody messed up and put nothing but red ones in one pack. Yes he can read, but obviously his perception still needs work.

Squawky came home and went through the fridge, like always. He eats everything. Last night he ate three man sized servings of "Misacetti" (spaghetti) in the same time I managed to eat one serving. When he becomes a teenager, I am sending him to live with Nana for the summers, she is used to feeding never ending boy bellies. It will give her time to reminisce.

Here are some pictures from the day:


Monkey as Superman with his head in the Cat in the Hat sorting hat.













Monkey's mommy told him if he says, "I hate Squawky" again she would wash his mouth out with soap. He said, we have pineapple flavored soap and it would taste good. I grabbed the camera and . . .













. . .the results.















Squawky comes out and shows off his Decepticon socks (evil Transformers)


5 Minutes later ...broken plate...


Coincidence?











I made this picture small on purpose. If you have a strong stomach you will notice definite boy hanging from the right nostril.



The next little Transformer. . .











Wifey wanted to take some sweet pictures of the boys by the Christmas tree and this is what she got. . .

those kiddos are a-dorable. nice going.
looks like a wild and crazy sunday afternoon. our new schedule this year is 1:30-4:30, which completely changes the sunday dynamic. (no naptime!)

Michal,

We have the same schedule. It also ruins my naps!

Stop making me miss those boys so much! I must say, the picture of the broken plate is a little disturbing. Something about the funky-faced naked doll lying next to it...

I had a fun time with your boys in Texas (by "boy" I am not making reference to hanging snot from a nostril). Thanks for sending your version of "Mini-me"--I thought cloning was illegal!

My best to the Sacramento Kin--I mean, take care.

Holy cow! i just noticed (in the last picture) that Monkey and Squawky have the exact same smile.
