Friday night Fakers

Before midnight, this is what I found on the floor. (McKay was at a sleepover). Who's faking and who's really asleep?

Bike Train.....wreck

A Sunday afternoon riding bikes. Notice the progression of the little daredevil at the end of the line.
She's definitely the one I have to watch
Because she thinks she is invincible.
And even when I heard the thump behind me and turned around....
I didn't hear crying, only laughing.

wall art

I've been very slow at getting pictures and art up in my house. Very slow. Jacob told me when we moved in that once a picture was hung it couldn't move. He's very picky about his nail holes in the wall. So in Cruz's room I have 3 big frames hung.....pictureless. They are 20 x 20 and I always wanted to take one of him in an excavator, one in a dump truck, and one in either the Bobcat or wheel loader. So since we don't own an excavator and we only rent one once a year, I had to get them done a couple weeks ago.
And of in the bucket. Now the pictures of getting him up here were a lot funnier.
I'm really surprised Cruz let us put him up there. The buck is a good 8 feet in the air. Cruz is my one that is terrified of heights....even as much as lifting him over your head and onto your shoulders. I guess that he is a typical boy and anytime you get your "big toys" involved it's all fun and games.

Here's the you like the whole excavator picture or the bucket picture?


(Grandpa Smith's nickname for Cruz, and Cruz writes it for his name all the time)

My little guy was sick yesterday. It's always sad when kids are sick and Cruz just couldn't keep anything down. In fact, most times he wasn't sure "how" he was going to be sick he just was. And as bad as I felt for him I was so happy to be able to take the day off and spend it with my kids again. So the day I spent washing sheets, shampooing a bed, laundry, washing a bowl out, and wiping bums and rubbing Cruz's back as he fell asleep while still answering the business line and......IT was all worth it.
