For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

In the Boat

Sam and Luke were so cute before church this morning. They played for the longest time.  Sam even crashed his train into Luke, and after a little comfort from momma, Luke was right back at it.  They took long naps, which was wonderful. Then, when Sam woke up, he wanted Luke "in the boat."  Sam calls any bed a boat.  He pretends all kinds of things while he's in his boat, and he usually wants everyone in there with him.  They had so much fun in the boat today.

Fun in the Sun

We absolutely loved the snow while it lasted, but we sure enjoyed the sunshine and warmer weather today.  Poor Luke was in his pajamas outside, but he didn't care, and I didn't either.  Sam and Luke slept until 6:45 this morning, which is the latest they've slept in forever.  It was such a gift.  (I'm still praying for a full night's sleep, but at least we weren't up before the sun.  Luke is sleeping like a champ now that he is well, but Sam is struggling.  He's been having bad dreams and crying out at night.  I've been having to get in bed with him until he goes back to sleep.)  Sean made pancakes and bacon for breakfast, and then the boys were playing so well together that we were able to clean the whole house.  Sean and Sam played outside until lunch, and then we were all back outside after naps.  At one point, Bobby took off with Luke in the red car, and then Sam joined him.  I'm not sure who had more fun...Sam and Luke, or Bobby.  It was a wonderful day!  

Sam thought this was hilarious.

Snow, Part 2

This has been the best snow day ever.  Snow is so much fun with a two-year old!  Sam was so excited when he saw the snow still there this morning.  He was ready to get out and play as soon as he got up.  Let me just say that he woke up at 5:15, so we had to wait a while.  We were out in it by 8:00, and he had a blast!

I made the most pitiful snowman ever, but in my defense, Luke needed to get back in the house.


What a week! We have snow!  It's been a crazy week in our house with Luke being sick, but he is finally back to his happy self.  And he is finally sleeping again!  I was home with the boys Monday and Tuesday, and I was so glad for the snow day Wednesday, because Luke really needed another day at home.  When I put Sam down for his nap yesterday, it was just raining, and I wasn't expecting to get any snow like they'd predicted.  I got Luke to sleep, and I crawled under the covers myself.  I woke up to a text from Genise asking me if I knew it was snowing.  Sean got home a few minutes later, and I pulled out the snowsuit for Sam.  He woke up not longer after that, and we got out in it.  It took a while for it to stick, but the snowflakes were huge.  Sam loved every minute of it. And so did we!

Here are a few pictures of Sam and Luke in the sink the other day.  Luke's fever was gone, but he was fussy.  As soon as I put him in the sink, Sam had to join him.  They had a big time.
