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

Playing with a Box

We are tired of rain around here.  I taught Sam "Rain, rain, go away," and it's rained so much that he learned the song quickly.  There were a few hours yesterday where it wasn't raining, so we all hung out in the carport.  It was still too wet to do much else, but they had a blast.  They had the most fun with the Amazon box, though.  We ordered some garlic oil to keep the mosquitoes away, and it came in a huge box.  Sam and Luke played with the box and the bubble wrap for over an hour.  Luke decided to taste the sidewalk chalk, too.  He was not a fan.

The Perfect Ending to a Great Spring Break

The weather was terrible for most of the week, but today was perfect.  Yesterday was cloudy, but we were still able to get outside, too.  We enjoyed every minute of the last days of Spring Break.  My washing machine is the only thing that has worked hard.  All three of my boys have dirtied up some clothes, but I'm not complaining one bit.

Sam loaded up the backhoe with coins.  What the picture doesn't show is Sam having a fit because Luke wanted to play with the backhoe.  Thank goodness we have two.

You can tell Sam wasn't wanting Luke to play, but he was being a good sport this time.

Luke pushed the button on this tractor at least 20 times...and he just grinned every time.

Those things go on the scope of Sean's gun.  I'm not sure what Sam thought they were, but he enjoyed wearing them.

Luke just couldn't resist the puddle.

Spring Break

We've had a great Spring Break, even though it's been busier than I anticipated.  I got a lot done that I usually don't have time for, and the boys were so good.  Tuesday morning, they both woke up with pink eye.  I have no idea where they got it, but I was relieved we didn't have to go to the doctor. They called in drops for both of them.  Putting drops in their eyes has been HORRIBLE!!  Luke isn't too bad, but it takes both me and Sean to get them in Sam's eyes.  Wednesday, we went to Tupelo with Beverly, and it was a lot of fun.  Sam calls it "Tukelo," and he loves to shop with his Nana.  He heard Luke stirring that morning, and he ran into his room and said, "Luke, we're going shopping with Nana!"  We got Easter outfits and new shoes for both of them.  I was changing Luke's diaper in the restroom at Chick-Fil-A, and Sam heard someone going to the restroom.  He said, "Momma, her pee pee is coming out."  I was so embarrassed.  Yesterday was "Potty Day," and it didn't go well.  The plan was for Sam to wear underwear and use the potty all day.  He went once, and then he peed on the floor several times after that.  We'll try again soon.  We've played outside every chance we could get, but it's been rainy all week.  We've made the best of it, though.  It's been so nice having lazy mornings with my babies.  Now we count down to summer!

Luke loves toothbrushes.

Sam wanted to lay beside Luke,  You can see in the next picture that he woke him up.

Sam made a pallet in the hall, and Luke loved it.
