How to Get Out of a Job

Whenever I ask Miles to do something lately, he runs in place and exclaims that he can't do it. Then he sits down, out of breath.

The Late Over

What is a late-over you ask? I learned the term "late-over" from my niece, Ava. Apparently it is just like a sleepover, but the friend goes home right before bed. We had actually planned on a full sleep-over last night, but Morgan suddenly had a fever and was crying on the couch and Ava had to go home. We didn't have time to get in jammies or pop popcorn and make a mess with it downstairs, but we did have time for a little fun.
We had english muffin pizzas for dinner. Usually I would let the kids decorate their own, but after I did one, I was just too into it. Yeah, I did them all. But they turned out cute and the kids loved them. After the kids ate their pizza, they got a rock candy sucker. These are awesome! I haven't seen them since I was a little kid and got so excited when I found them so cheap at a party store. A total hit with the kids.

After dinner the kids cuddled on the couch and watched Harry Potter. Then Morgan got sick and that was that. Everyone had fun up until then and we are definitely taking a rain check on the sleep-over part of the sleep-over.

Potter Puppet Pals

I finally let my kids watch Harry Potter. Well, the first 2 anyway, it starts to get scary after that. They were so into it, we all watched Potter Puppet Pals: Mysterious Ticking Noise on YouTube. My kids are hooked, they sing it all day long. You have never heard anything as funny as Miles' "Harry Potter, Harry Potter, UH!" Love these kids. =)

Uncle Troy Hair?!

This is what I woke up to this morning.
The hair may be demanding all your attention, so you might miss the bags under his eyes. The reason? Miles decided at some point in the night to get out of bed and go play on the computer. How do we know this? When Matt went to check his email before leaving for work, he found the website up on all 3 computers. Umm...can you say "like father, like son"?? No idea what time he finally got himself to bed, but obviously it wasn't early enough.
