PS I forgot to mention this until after I posted, but when I went to get the little boys dressed Sunday morning, I found out the older two boys had painted their nails pink. No polish remover in the house so when we walked into church, my two baby boys had pink nails!
Well, we have had another really nice weekend. Yesterday we went to see Prince Caspian and really liked it. It is long for little ones (2 1/2 hours). We went to a 9:45 AM showing and we were the only ones in the theater. We could spread out and pretend it was a huge family room. That was particularly nice because Matthew was a little rambuncious and Joseph kept making comments on the movie. The kids spent a lot of the rest of the day playing outside and Peter spent it sleeping so he could do the night shift.
Today started exhausting enough. Once again I was a little late and Peter was home sleeping after a night shift (the last one this month!!), herding my children into the meeting while everyone watched. Then, I had to drag out Matthew and Joseph in the middle of the sacrament because they were being too loud. As if that wasn't bad enough, after we came back in, I gave Matthew my iphone (he likes to hold it up to his ear like he is talking) and he somehow turned on music- even though it was locked and turned to silent. The worse part was, I couldn't figure out how to turn it off fast enough and was forced to practically run down the isle with Matthew in tow while my phone played After Midnight by Eric Clapton. Fun, huh? After that, Matthew more or less played quietly and Joseph looked at scrapbook pictures I have downloaded onto my phone (you should see my 3 year old navigate my touchscreen!), so the rest of Sacrament meeting went well.
After church we rested a while then I woke up Peter and we played a game of Qwirkle (I won!), went on a family walk down the boardwalk by our house (in the drizzling rain, but the kids had a blast), ate some chicken soup (those of you that are in hot areas, we can still have hot chocolate, jackets and soup!), and played a marathon Settlers of Catan Cities and Knights extension game (4 hours). Elise had her 1st victory. And now, the kids are going to bed and I am checking blogs and Peter is watching the golf he DVR'ed. Like I said, just another Later Sunday.
