Reading Time, Friends And New Jammas

Will couldn't resist snapping a photo when me and the kiddos were all spending some quality time together- with a book.

My bestest friend, Britt came to town from Spokane and brought her two little ones.  Reese was coloring cards for Olivia for the next couple of days.  I hated to tell her that we wouldn't see Olivia again in the near future.

Wal-mart had their long-sleeve jammies on sale.  It's getting hot, but since the fabric is so thin, I figured the long sleeves won't be a problem.  

Plus it's fun to do something that completely makes their day.  Reese kept asking if it was getting dark, because she knows that's the cue to get jammas on.  Liam got Thomas the tank engine and Reese got Dora the explorer, current favorites in our household.

Photo Dump

Here are some photos of some things.

Reese and Liam.

We've been learning different ways to clean Reese's room.  Here she is practicing the method where we scoop all the toys into a pile to see how tall the pile is before putting the toys away.  Liam hasn't been much help.

The clean room.  One time, I put her down to bed in a messy room and later that night when I went to check on her the room was clean.  Maybe this teaching her to clean up isn't as futile as other moms would have me believe....

Reese playing (and posing) in the yard.

Liam helps clean up

He loves sweeping.

Liam graduates from the crib to the toddler bed.  Then quickly from the toddler bed to the bottom bunk.

We have tons of ivy in our yard

Reese and Liam love playing outside.

A tree getting cut down.  Only 7 more to go, give or take.

We read a lift-the-flap book with animal sounds.
