Brothers and Shopping Fun

We have been having a wonderful summer. The kids love the new house, and so do I! Yesterday we finally put some pictures on the walls in the family room and play room. We also cleaned out the closet under the stairs that is a perfect baby play area. I can't believe the kids start school in less than two weeks!

Here is Jonathan, age 11 months, and Daniel, age 3. Jonathan is already wearing size 24months/2T.

Here are my angels in the checkout line at Sam's Club. And this is why I can never get through a shopping trip without hearing the phrase, "Wow, you've got your hands full!" People also usually seem to pity Emily because she is the only girl.
Today we were at Wal-mart and I panicked for a moment when I couldn't find Andrew. Guess where he was? Hiding on the bottom of the cart. Don't worry--I don't let him ride around like that. It sure keeps him out of trouble in the checkout line, though. :-)

Catching Up

Life has been a little crazy, but we are doing great. We closed on our new house on June 1. We first did some painting in the new house and then we finished packing the other house. We moved on June 12. We were blessed to have my dad and Debbie and TJ here for over 3 days to help (Dad did a lot of work helping us fix up the new house), and many wonderful church members were there to help us on moving day. We have been working hard on getting unpacked and settled in.

Daniel's birthday was on May 24. He was so excited about his presents and his Thomas cake.
I tried to buy him a "3" candle at the store, but he cried until I agreed to buy him a "1" because Thomas is engine #1.

I found this ride-on toy at a second-hand shop and I couldn't resist. It looks exactly like the one in the waiting room at our doctor's office, and he cries every time he has to stop playing with it. Needless to say, he was pretty excited about it.

The kids love to cuddle on the couch and watch movies together.

We had a great visit from Uncle Joe, my brother. Jonathan loved sitting on his lap, and Joe didn't seem to mind holding him. :-)
