Daddy's Lil' Helper

Bryce LOVES to help Jimmy mow the grass.  They both put on their protective gear (we're a very safety-conscious family!) and he will sit with Jimmy for several hours driving the John Deer! 

But, when this boy gets tired, nothing gets in the way of his nap!!!  Bryce fell asleep for 20 mintutes so Jimmy just kept on mowing!

On the actual day of Bryce & Drew's birthday we enjoyed a quiet day at home...just the 4 of us. They opened their presents from us and then we just played together.

We got the boys their first LEGO sets and surprisingly they sat for 1 1/2 hours putting all those little pieces together...with our help, of course! 

Nana, Papa & Teal were flying in the next week so we waited until they got here to do their birthday party.  The boys picked out the Curious George theme and we invited all of our friends to come "monkey around" with us at Happy Kids - a bounce house place.  We all had so much fun!  I brought coffee for all the adults so we could visit while the kids played.


Thank you Grayson, Andrus, Liam, Lakyn, Keenan, CJ & Cannon (and parents!) for celebrating our birthday with us.  We had so much fun with you and are so thankful you are our friends!

A Sweet Way To End The Day!

These days, my boys are pretty extremely competitive.  Bryce more so than Drew.  They race on their bikes, they race to see who can pee first, finish eating first, brush their teeth first, and even fall asleep first! Bryce will stop at nothing to win - even if it means hurting Drew.  He will hold him down, trip him or push him to win!  It has been really ugly.  Drew ends up hurt & crying.  Bryce cries because he gets a time out and a spanking.'s so frustrating and a huge time waster!  It's making me crazy!

Tonight, after a long day of competition, I captured this...

Bryce & Drew layed face-to-face eating their popcorn and discussing their day.  Each one said, "So...what did you do today?!"  Even though they spent the entire day together they recounted the day's events!  It made me smile and thank God for my little boys...even though we have these "tough twin times", I'm glad God gave me 2!
